The printer was a bit of a pain to set up as you have to dismantle the whole thing to remove the packaging pieces - you've definitely got to read the instructions for this. Having said which it was easy to do - just a question of following the instructions. Once the packaging was removed installation was a doddle - everything happened automatically. It set itself up on the network totally automatically and discovered all its IP addresses etc. Windows 7 had all the drivers installed already, so our PCs found the printer and configured themselves automatically as well.
The LCD display panel is easy to use - much better than the old HP. There's also a built in web server that you can attach to from your browser that has all the printer status and error information a man could want.
It's very quick to start printing - even when you first power it on, or when it has fallen into 'sleep' mode to save power. It's also much quieter than the HP.
I know it's more expensive than some competitors but it looks really solid and well built - ready for some high volume usage. The comparison reviews in PC Pro also showed that the costs per page are lower than most others if you are printing lots of pages.
My only gripe is that the current price on Amazon is £ less than I paid last week. Grrrr
It arrived very quickly, in fact the next day and was well packaged.
Took 5 Minutes to unpack and remove travelling restraints.
Took even less time to install drivers on multiple operating systems.
Print quality is excellent and is very quick. Toner is reasonably priced.
I have looked at other reviews of this printer and can add the following.
The driver now offers a Black and white only option, works across multiple platforms with no problems.
Can't see a problem about noise as in my opionon it is very quiet.
It is smaller, quieter, faster than my previous printer, and is higher quality at 1200 DPI
My only wish is that I had not bought this printer sooner.
The print quality is good and it is a delight to have something where the "ink" does not run when it wets. Printed word with this machine is far more precise than inkjet printing.
BUT the toner costs at this rate of use have been frightening !!! So far this is beginning to look prohibitive and I might be tempted to ditch it.
Has anyone else found this?
And why does Lexmark not give us tips on how to maximise efficient use? The cruel conclusion would be to suggest that they have a vested interest in not telling us.
PS - I have just totted up the cartridge use and it comes to 22.1 pence per page over the life of my printer (3840 pages). I mostly print medical/biological papers - so it's not graphics rich printing.
