"The best All-In-One I've ever had!!!!"4.5 starson by whippetone
Pros: I love:
Double sided printing!
Seemingly endless Ink supply!
5 YEAR Warranty!
Cons: I've yet to try faxing, but I don't atticipate a problem!
Also I'm not using it wireless so I can't comment on that feature either.
Summary: I have had 3 different AIO's over the past 4 years (an HP, Epson, and another HP) and all gave me no end of trouble! Poor print quality, streaks, or just not working at all (BOTH HP's after 13 and 16 months, just past the end of the 12 month warranty!!)
Prior to that I had a freebie Lexmark printer that came with my then new computer. The print quality was pretty bad (what can you expect for free!) but it was still working and I used it as my back-up printer when the other three expensive ones failed me! So I thought Lexmark, I?ll give one of their printers a try. Hopefully it will keep working like the freebie so I could get my monies worth this time!
I went on cnet (Indispensable resource I always consult FIRST!! Thanks cnet!!) looking for an AIO printer they rated as ?good? or better that was preferably a Lexmark? The X7675 came up as their best AIO for my price range. I found one on sale at Office Depot, bought it, and gave it a try.
Set up was almost too easy! Right away I was printing great quality prints very fast! I know some reviewers thought the speed was slow, and I?m not a home business owner so for that crowd it might be true, but not for me; a disillusioned personal printer user who needed a die-hard work-horse! The speed was faster than all three previous AIO?s even though 1 HP cost considerably more than the Lexmark!
Scanning is easy and perfect and fast! The auto feed copier feature is really handy and makes getting copies very simple! Also now I won?t need to run to Kinko?s to fax documents any more paying $1.50 a page. (None of the other AIO?s even had fax capability!)
Then a big print job came up? I had a 300 page document that needed to be printed and so I sighed and sent it to the X7675 expecting severely depleted ink reserves after the job? I selected two sided printing (big paper savings there!) and sent it to print!
I didn?t need to baby sit the process, if fact I wasn?t even at my computer for the main part of the job? And it was done in no time!
Great quality printing, no paper errors, and I didn?t need to touch even one page to facilitate the two sided printing! But then I went to check on my ink levels?.. And to my huge shock the levels where still down only about 7%!!! In the other AIO?s if I?d had a print job like that it would have cut reserves in half!!
I?ve also never had a paper jam, or ink malfunction, or other bothersome little troubles that make you want to SCREAM! Now if this one holds up like the freebie Lexmark I?ll be happy?.
But wait!... Even if I DO HAVE a problem with it, the X7675 has a 5 YEAR WARRANTY!! That alone makes this printer I00 times better than any other printer I?ve ever had!! Go out looking and you won?t find any kind of warranty like that for this price on the market!! I guess next year I won?t have to go looking for yet another printer after having one fail?
