"Great printer - Inexpensive ink!!!"5.0 starson by Capital_WRKR
Pros: Black ink costs $4.99. I literally bought 10 of those black catridges for $49.99 and I get 5,000 pages???? WOW...the best HP cost me $70+ for just less than 5,000 pages. Plus, the Lexmark machine has apps I downloaded FOR FREE!
Cons: I honestly see none. Anyone that doesn't take notice to this machine or any Lexmarks like it are crazy! Get off the HP bandwagon and look at who makes quality products THAT ARE BACKED UP BY 5 YEAR WARRANTIES.
Summary: So, I can get black ink (which is what my home office typically consists of) for $5. Its about time some company comes down on price. Before, I was spending $70 on two HP cartridges that ran out after a month. Do the math and that is roughly $800 on ink in a year. Now I will probably spend $120 on black and very little on color in a whole year.
The apps you can download are awesome. I follow the local paper just outside of Oklahoma City (where I am from). The news comes on my printer screen. This is helpful because I don't have to waste time logging onto the internet at my computer. Also, I pre-programmed my Platinum to copy 2-sided and two copies of each job and black & white ALL into 1 button. This printer is extremely user friendly and it spits out some good prints (black and color). The sales associate that sold it to me showed me a picture from the Platinum and the same from the best HP photo printer. Needless to say the Lexmark was better.
