Pros Simple Pigment based deep Black ink, and Text at 2400x1200 resolution Find another printer at this price point that does that. Why pay $200 or $300 for an All in One that only has 600x600 dpi Text ???
Capacitive LCD Touch Screen responsive.
Cons Menu Icons, they look too Fisher Price child like, they should be nicer icons but thats minor.
Summary Simple if you need to do the best Possible Graphics and Text Documents the s605 Lexmark is the best 2010 model better than more expensive all in ones.
I returned a $300 Artisan 810 because it has grey looking poor resolution blacks that I would not care to use on my kids homework papers let alone business documents.
Also Lexmark and its new VIZIX inks on the s605 have 3200 Nozzels the more nozzles the better.
Pros Easy to use, touch panel, can b set for auto two sided printing, and pictures are of good quality. It seems to be good with ink and separate ink cartridges for colors and back and white.
Cons No con at this time.
Summary This is a good product for the money. It prints,scans and copies. The features are easy to use and print and picture quality are good It has a two side print feature that can be turned off. wireless system is easy to install if know how to check you routing numbers and make sure there is no conflicts. Any errors message are in plain langauge with instruction on the solution.
Pros love the interface, double-sided printing, and scanner/copier/printer functionality minus unnecessary fax. Print quality is amazing for the price.
Cons Paper feed gets jammed on nearly every first sheet - truly a pain.
More importantly, the Windows 7 driver is HORRIBLE. Print software won't close after job - to the extent that my fan turns on HIGH every single time I try to print with this thing.
Summary Beautiful printing, great features, BUT paper always jams, horrible Windows 7 driver, and 'optional' spyware.
Pros Drivers for Windows7, Windows XP, MacOS and Linux/Ubuntu
Has a small footprint on my desk
Touch screen is actually useful
Cons Driver does not appear to have a "shrink to fit" option
Could be quieter
Summary I'm very happy with this purchase. The printer has great design, the drivers are a breeze to install, and it supports the wide variety of computers in my home office, all wirelessly. Everything just worked - and the Linux drivers are full featured. I was surprised at the functionality of the touch screen.
I've never owned a Lexmark before - I had a perception that they were a second tier product under HP and Canon. But this product changed my mind - I'm happier with this Lexmark than I was with my past HP, Canon, or Epson printers and scanners.
Print quality looks fine for my purposes, though I am not doing much photo printing at home (I switched to Shutterfly a while ago).
Pros LIke the multifunction aspect.
Cons The paper feed is always getting jammed. I spend more time trying to get paper to feed into the printer than actual print time. The ink cost more than the printer. And the touch screen is very slow.
Summary Don't buy this printer. The paper feed is always getting jammed. I spend more time trying to get paper to feed into the printer than actual print time. The ink cost more than the printer. And the touch screen is very slow.
