"Worst printer I've ever owned"0.5 starson by basheesh
Pros: It prints (sometimes.)
Cons: Rarely stays connected to the wireless network.
Constantly has to be reset in order to connect.
Faded print quality.
Printhead constantly needs to be cleaned/realigned.
Touch-screen interface is sporadically non-responsive.
No document feeder.
Summary: I bought this on CNet's recommendation as one #2 of the best 5 printers. I honestly believe they must have gotten their data mixed up. Now, I know this is an "economy" printer, but even economy printers should work when you need them to. I specifically wanted a wireless printer so that all the computers on my network (some Mac, some Windows) could use it without any single machine having to share it. That works in theory, but every time the printer goes to sleep, and you power it back on to print, it NEVER reconnects to the network. No machine will be able to reach it. I have to reset it by powering it off, unplugging it for 30 seconds, then powering it back on again. Only then will it properly connect and be usable. This happens 100% of the time. It sits literally 10 feet from the wireless router, and the connection indicator on the printer will glow green as if it is connected, but it's not.
The rest of the problems I have with this thing are trivial by comparison. However, you should know what you're getting into. The touchscreen interface is horrible. There is a huge delay between my touch and its response. It makes you wonder every time if you actually touched it in the right spot. But don't be too quick to touch a second time...you may end up "double touching" and selecting something you didn't mean to!
Furthermore, the printhead constantly needs to be cleaned or realigned. I just looked back at it right now, and there is a big warning sign AGAIN that says "There is a problem with the printhead." I wonder if it needs to be cleaned or realigned this time.
Do NOT buy this printer. You will end up throwing it away and buying another at twice the price, ending up spending 3 times the original amount you spent on this gigantic paperweight. CNet, you should be ashamed of yourself for improperly reviewing this printer. Or is Lexmark a big sponsor of yours that you don't want to disparage?
