Lexmark Interpret S405
Advantages: Easy to use with good features
Disadvantages: Heavy use of ink makes it totally uneconomical - around 30p per page for standard black printing
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!
