"Lexmark 7675 Scores Bigtime"4.5 starson by newhouse1000
Pros: Great price, quiet as a church mouse operation, fast and easy setup, Wi-Fi printing works flawlessly, ADF and 2-sided printing, digital media (SD, mini-SD, flash, all memory sticks supported, and a 5-Year warranty
Cons: Bluetooth connectivity not supported directly. Of course, there are USB adaptable Bluetooth products available, and there are AIO's do not offer full-featured fax capability that offer Bluetooth for some reason.
Summary: as a business owner in this economy, I am more than a little concerned about value and reliability in product purchases. I went back to Circuit City to get another item, saw some people in the printer's aisle looking at units, and after explaining my research and use of the 7675, they asked if I worked for Lexmark, and proceeded to buy 1 for themselves and 1 as a Xmas gift. The replacement ink seems a little pricey at black and color bundled at CC for $48. But the XL High Yield cartridges are supposed to be 2X as good as standard ones, so that's a wash. The print quality is great in pure-black and color outputs. The case is nice gunmetal gray and black, and the ADF and paper exit trays have a sturdy feel that is an order of magnitude better than other comparably priced AIO's in my opinion. The Lexmark 7675 is new in stores, and my rating is the first here. But I am a more than satisfied, and a f-year warranty is the best offered in this product category, period! Very nice piece of technology, and at $148 value point in CC, these will be very popular and scarce units once people become aware.The 7675 does have full fax capability, as well as copy, print, scanning, and photo print via PictBridge, digital media, WiFi.
