I bought this machine which I then believed was perfect for my business purpose. Unpacked it and set it up, now to setup the time, date and who you are in fax mode requires an effort which you will do a lot of times, because everytime the power gives a kick on the grid you must again set it up. So 1 the fax function is an annoyance with that. Then you plug it to your PC here is my advice. Do not follow the instruction given, do not install the software as you're told. I did not in the first place and was told by Windows to insert the CD and the printer fired up, it worked great. Now the scanner did not, so I installed the software from the CD instead. Surprise... Now you have to click canncel XXX times every time you boot your computer, found new software well try it and you will see. So 2 the printer ends up as a major annoyance. The scanner never ever managed to work on neither of my PC's with WIn XP home nor XP pro, so 3. The scanner will annoy you. The copier worked for 2 months then the paper feeder just jams so you are forced to do one and one page, which is 4 very annoying. Last due to company policy we will go over to Linux OS so we contacted Lexmark, who after a lot of emails told me to just use it for copy and fax, forget about PC connectivety. Well to be honest I will not want this to happen to anyone unless they were my enemy. Save yourself this major hassle and buy a HP, Epson, Brother or Canon instead.
