Pros Wireless printing
Cons Both inks to print AT ALL
Summary I have not had any problems with this printer until the color ink ran out. I do not print much in color and just wanted to print a black document. The printer is designed to NOT print anything, even if you have black ink, until you pay to replace the color ink as well. I could never print anything else in color, but I still have to have full color ink sitting there in the machine for the printer to work. This is just a way for Lexmark to continue to suck money out of their consumers. Technical service chat was no help either. None of this information is included in their documentation they send with the printer. If you want a printer to print documents in black ink, make sure you are willing to always front the bill for the color ink as well.
Pros Ton of features
Cons Ton of features that never work!
Not a great looking paper weight, which is the only function it serves.
Wireless Connection will not stay connected.
Printhead Errors! Wait, the update fixed them. Nevermind, it actually didn't fix them.
Summary This thing is crap. It never works when you need it. Has never just printed out a job without requiring some additional step from me, i.e., get updates, clean printhead, etc.
Spills ink on the pages during constant resets and recalibrations, and then you're out of colored ink before you ever even print a color document.Customer servivce is friendly, but they don't fix anything. And they high rating it receives on the Lexmark website relative to the reviews every where else should tell you something about the ethics of the company. Obviously, they are picking and choosing reviews or using some other tactic to skew the ratings on their website. Avoid this company. They admit there are issues, but that doesn't fix the issues. Stay away.
Pros Wireless printing and scanning was good while it worked.
Cons 5 year warranty that it boosts does not do it any good if technical support has no clue. After multiple phones calls over several days and over 8 hours on the phone, printer still didn't work.
Summary I owed my Pro705 for 16 months. Overall, few problems.But when I had a serious communication issue, it was never resolved. Will never ever buy Lexmark again.. and would not recommend it. I trashed it.
Pros Great features if you don't need to print.
Cons Ink usage is tremendous!
Very frequent paper jams.
Does not work well with Windows 7 even after updates.
Te printheads dry out and you have to take them out to get ink to the surface and print mulitple times to get any ink on the page.
Summary I have not ever been so disappointed in any electronic device I have purchased. I paid more than for other printers that would have served my purpose because I liked the features and thought a Lexmark would be a reliable printer that would perform well. I couldn't have been more wrong. I recently purchased the muli color cartridge pack ($78)and had put in a black cartridge right before. As usual, it jammed; and then dumped extra magenta color on the page. I am not sure if that is the reason or the printheads drying out; but I didn't get 20 pages of print before it said the ink cartridges were low. Although I usually get more pages than twenty before having to replace cartridges, not many more.
I cannot believe this printer is still on the market!
Pros copying i guess.
Cons constantly loses connection to wifi, loud, several errors
Summary it sucks!!!!! i've had this printer for a couple years and it turned into junk just a little after i got it. you always have to reconnect it to wifi. its garbage, save your money!
