"S305 The Worst Printer Ever!!!! by Far"0.5 starson by NTBK
Pros: There is really nothing positive to say about the S305. The only thing that make it catch attention is the very low price it sells for. People buy it without knowing the Hell they will get into.
Cons: Slowest Printer Ever, It uses all colors to create black even when you specify use black ink only. Ink is extremely expensive, even refilled cartridges. The software that comes with it is extremely limited almost useless. Paper jams are daily.
Summary: Horrible: It is the slowest printer I've ever seen in my life. Even when you specify Print all in Black it keeps using the other colors (Got no clue what for) and it will lock and Not Work unless you place a new cartridge, even if those colors are not required. Ink is so expensive, even refilled cartridges that in one month we have already spent more than what the printer costs. The operational software that comes with it is a joke. You can not rotate scanned images by degree and sometimes when you sent a certain amount of copies it will do less and send a printing complete message! We all hate it in the office. 100% of the times we want to print, it sends a message saying that the printer is busy when its not and we have to open and close the lid for this to clear up. Making copies takes forever and just as bad as when you are printing, when you want to make copies and put the switch in print all in black mode, it goes right back to full color mode this will often come with a nasty POP UP in your screen saying that you are low on certain colors and threating that the printer wont work if they are too low on ink. The POP UP also displays a link that says: Buy Ink Now! . The guy that bought it got fired for loosing the receipt (no joke). In conclusion this printer is excrementicious and since I am the main person using it, it just makes my life difficult at work when I print invoices. On my next paycheck i am seriously considering buying it from my boss and take it to the park with my office buddies and destroy it with baseball bats like in the movie Office Space. Stay Away from Lexmark S305 It is worst than bad!
