Pros: prints well good quality I haven't really tested the fastness because I don't have to however I can say that about 4 pages only takes seconds. $5 black ink
Cons: This thing is designed to rip you off. If it loses power it can keep track of the black just fine but the color cartridges which are far more expensive get 'lost' and you HAVE to put in new ones. It will not print without color, and then after about 20 pages it will say replace color cartridges and it WILL NOT work until you do. This printer is a preverbial money trap avoid it!
Other Thoughts: I will never buy a lex mark printer again. Such underhandedness. The sales sold me quickly on the 5 dollar black cartridges since that is the 'color' you use the most. I have replaced the color over the last year or more at least 4 times and I think maybe printed about 100 pages or so.
We're sorry to hear about your experience. Please make sure that the firmware of your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update. It makes your printer more reliable and more efficient. It will also help with the problems that you have indicated in your review.
To save on your ink investment, try to purchase the high yield cartridges. It contains 3x as much ink compared to the standard cartridges. Printing in draft mode will help you maximize the life of your ink cartridges. Also, if you're printing mostly black and white documents, make sure to set your printing preferences to print using black ink only to conserve the color cartridges.
If you're still experiencing the same problem after applying the firmware update, please contact our technical support team via phone so they can do some diagnostics.
