One hell of a printer. I am wrong not just a printer ALL IN ONE. And does the job extremely well. The print quality is excellent I mean for home use or even an office I would have thought. The Copy and scan is quite quick as well. The faxing has not let me down as yet. The setting up of the FAX was a bit challenging for me. But I am not an expert - once you follow the instructions to the T it is no problem at all. The wireless is very stable especially that it is a N enabled one I have - be specific when you buy as there is a lexmark 405 that looks identical to this but is only b/g wireless enabled.
It's ink cartridges costs more than £20, and therefore i think it is easy to replace the printer itself than buying ink cartridges. Oh did I mention it cost be less than £30 to but one new from Viking. On full price it can be bought for about £50-£60.
And yes it a "green" as it automatically can be set to print on both sides. It fills me with warmth!!
I have had it for the past year and now it seems that its ink needs replacing- and I print very rarely. I think its life span that way is a bit short.
When the printer starts to print, it makes a loud noise. It sounds like someone is dragging chairs on the first floor. Since it is very close to the bedroom, i would have preferred if it was quiter.
WARNING - AVOID this printer! Attractive though the technology is, 30 pence per page, wiothout colour is just too much. I regret buying this machinehaving been convinced by the salesman that i could achieve around 1 pence per page. I have found that a black cartridge costing around £13.00 yields approx 40 pages. I was horrified that printing a test page used 10% of the ink in each cartridge. I have owned the machine for just 3 weeks and replaced the all the cartridges (cost £13.00 (black) = £26.00 (cyan, magent & yellw)) to print 132 pages . . . and the 2nd black cart ran out today! This is NOT a printer - it is a milk cow for Lexmark. As a FAX machine, it works fine as a straightforward send (and possibly recieve) device - ie push in a document and type in a fax number and press go. However, the software that allows you to send docs stored on your computer requires you to enter the receiving phone number in an unitelligible manner (oe +44(****) (0)*---*) which is a format that appears to make no sense to BT! I wish these were minor gripes because the features of the machine itself are excepional and very easy to use. Scanning is a breeze, copying is simplicity itself and as a wireless device it is excellent. My problem is that the consumables (ink) have the worst yield I have ever enountered and are so expensive, I cannot afford to run it. So, WARNING - AVOID this printer!
