Pros: Toner is pretty cheap.
Cons: Absolutely PLAGUED with issues. We have 6 of these printers, and they're all doing the exact same thing.
The printer hangs every few days blinking "busy" on the screen, requiring reboots. The fax erroneously says "line detected in wrong jack", then quietly fails to receive incoming faxes. The printer jams and doesn't seem to feed the paper in. The printer can't detect legal vs letter paper and just quietly discards print jobs if you mismatch the two.
Trying to deploy the printer via Windows Server Group Policies is a pain, too. The postscript driver defaults to duplex doublesided printing. The PCL driver is a User Mode 4 driver which cannot be deployed automatically.
The Universal driver works, but Lexmark Support things that it is what is causing the "green light flashing busy" problems.
All in all, I'm thoroughly disappointed, and the hours and hours of time we've lost in productivity and troubleshooting is staggaring. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRINTER.
Other Thoughts: Lexmark Support has been less than helpful. Half the time I'm getting routed to the wrong department or the call is getting dropped.
I finally spoke to someone who gave me a beta pre-release firmware to install on the printer to try and fix it. They insist the problem is "software" and therefore not worth trying to swap the printer for a different one.
I agree, I have SIX of these printers and they all behave the exact same way. There's some sort of bug in the firmware causing the printer to hang up.
And this affects not just the MX310 series, but we're having identical issues with the MS510 and MS310 as well.
Sorry guys, but a bug in your firmware, as far as I'm concerned, is a HARDWARE issue. The printer is flat out defective.

Pros: Not much to say... I've got 2x of them in a ZFS mirror on my FreeNAS server and it's working perfectly.

Pros: Nice middle-of-the-road fan. It isn't totally silent, but it also isn't unbearably noisy. It blows a decent amount of air. It works exactly as advertised.
The included fan controller and protective grill is what makes it worth it - that alone would cost more than the fan to buy separately.
The red fins look nice, and it feels solid and well made.
Cons: On one of the fans I received, the plastic around the fan cable was damaged when the assembler who made it shoved the cable into the little plastic "slot" in the side of the fan. The other two fans I bought didn't have that issue, so I think it was just a quality control issue. In any case, it didn't prevent the fan from working properly. I just wrapped some electrical tape around it.READ FULL REVIEW
