This review is from: Lexmark CX510DHE Color Multifunction Laser Printer
Pros: For a laser printer, it is rated well for photo reproduction. When it was printing, the output was decent, and I believed that I would be able to tweak it to do better. It seems that it could be a nice machine overall IF IT WORKED.
Cons: IT JUST ISN'T WORKING. It has lots of features, but doesn't seem to be very compatible. I am running 64-bit Windows 8 and having lots of problems. It started with the scanning function, which basically didn't work at all. After spending a lot of time with the tech support department, I got to where I could scan from the app that comes with the MFC, but not from the apps I normally use, like Acrobat Pro X and Photoshop. Tech support said that I would have to live with the limitation for the time being and that they would get back to me when they had replicated the problem.
The tech called back to tell me that I needed to update Adobe Reader and then I would be able to scan. 3 problems with that: 1) I'm using Acrobat Pro, not Reader; 2) Acrobat Reader does not have a scan function (so, I have no idea what he was talking about); 3) NOW IT DOES NOT PRINT.
Other Thoughts: Maybe I will be able to solve these problems given enough time with tech support or maybe the printer is just incompatible. So far, Lexmark's twain driver only works with Lexmark's apps, and I have had to manually open many ports to try to get communication happening with the computer. Overall, a very cumbersome and frustrating process. Maybe it works better with a different OS, but, based on my experience, don't expect it to work out of the box.
