Customer Reviews of Lexmark Prevail Pro705 Small Office Wireless 4-in-1 Inkjet Color Printer
Good Printer, Overpriced Ink12/25/2011
Overall this is a good printer. I have not had too many problems. Setup was easy on both my Windows computers and laptops. All I had to do was follow the quick setup instructions. Sometimes when waking from sleep mode it does not connect back to my router. To fix that problem, I simply turn it off and back on. The document feeder will feed two sheets in at times, but not often. If you scan a lot of documents like I do, be sure to check the scanned document before putting away. Where this printer doesn’t shine is in the replacement cost of the cartridges. It was cheaper for me to go buy a cheap color laser printer than to try to keep ink in this printer. I signed up for the Lexmark Ink Cartridge Replacement Program thinking the ink cost would be cheaper than the HP printer I replaced, but it isn’t. I have not been able to find replacement cartridges that work. The firmware auto updates and makes sure you cannot use any other cartridge other than Lexmark. I have used replacement and refilled cartridges before in other printers and have always found the quality to be as good as the manufacturer. I now mostly use this printer as a scanner only and everyone printers to the laser printer instead. I have had this printer for some time now. In the beginning I was very satisfied. As time has gone on, the cartridge cost has made this printer into the family scanner. The laser printer cartridge cost ended up being cheaper than this inkjet printer cartridge cost.
Too many problems.11/7/2011
Have had this printer for about 10 months and the print head has needed replacement twice. The ink is expensive and I have to continually run the wireless setup because it keeps disconnecting from my router (nothing else connected has any problems). I really wanted to like this printer but after I receive this next print head, if I have any more problems, I'm cutting my losses and moving on to another brand of printer.
beware of deceptive practices3/22/2011
Printer worked fine for 1 month which is a miricale in itself these days. Scanner then couldn't recognize the computer so had to scan to a USB key. Autofeed tray scanner would crop pages so had to scan single sheet at a time. Called customer support line & they installed a software upgrade which then disabled the printer entirely because one of the ink carterages was not Lexmark brand. They claim non-Lexmark ink will damage the printer but we all know it's so they can make a boatload on ink sales. They claimed that it was in the warranty which it isn't and they skirt the issue when you ask them for the disclosure directly. They won't tell you this when they change your software or you do an update. I won't buy a Lexmark again because of it.
Printer arrived in less than 24hrs from ordering. 10 minute set up. Works like a charm.
Good Value - Easy Set-Up1/18/2011
Received the printer in a few days. Set up with a PC and a Mac and it worked flawlessly. The set-up is simple and the wireless capability is nice as you can put the printer anywhere.
Very pleased with this Lexmark Pro705 all-in-one printer! Although I have yet to use all of the functions, I found it very quick and easy to set up and used it to send and receive faxes within 15 minutes of hooking it up. It is much easier to work with than the unit it replaces, and at the price I paid for it here (less than a third of the other name barand unit), a fantastic value. Highly recommend it.
GOOD PRODUCT/GOOD PRICE1/17/2011
Only two problems so far (2 weeks) was: 1) The installation. Setting up the WiFi was a real bear. Took about an hour even with tech help. 2) Had a problem printing spreadsheets (EXCEL). The tech knew nothing about spreadsheets but after I showed him (he was was logged on my computer) what I did to connect to my old HP OfficeJet A-I-O we managed to work out the problems LEXMARK was having. So far I am pleased overall and would recommend the machine.
First, Buy.coms shipping was very fast, had it the next day. Set up was easy using the supplied disk on all 4 of my PC's and laptops. All operating systems (XP 32bit, Vista 64bit and Windows 7 64bit) installed flawlessly. The wireless works great. I have not had it long enough to say how well the ink lasts, but am satisfied with the print quality. Very nice printer for $99
excellent shipping..we received our order the day after we ordered it...works well, easy set up are very pleased with our printer.
Great Printer and Value12/20/2010
Shipping was fast. Setup was quick and easy with the included CD using Win 7. I have used the copy, scan and print from computer functions. For black only documents the Draft mode looks great on paper and is fast. I have not yet printed photos so cannot comment. I connected with the included USB cable and have not tried wireless, although from other reviews I think this would be easy to set up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the software integrates with Office 2007, so documents can be scanned directly to Outlook email as pdf attachments from the printer sheet feeder. Scanning resolution is excellent. The 5 year factory warranty and lifetime phone support are a plus. Big Thumbs Up on this purchase.
It was a little tricky to install on a 64 bit system, but once we downloaded the correct drivers from the website, we had no problems. Pros: -Easy to use all functions, including the fax -Price -Look and design is professional -Can be hooked up wireless and directly to a computer at the same time. This is great if you have computers in multiple rooms -Ink discounts through Lexmark -You can manage the printer, including viewing ink levels from your computer Cons: -Noisy -It can drop the wireless connection -Takes a while to warm up Overall, we are very pleased with the printer and all it's functions.
Great printer at a great price10/20/2010
Very capable machine and smaller than my previous 4in1. Quiet and easy to set up. The five yr warranty is really a great bonus. What's not to like.
When I like something, I write about it.9/30/2010
When I don't like a product, I want others to know about it, but when I find something really worthwhile, I feel an obligation to give credit where credit is due. in my 30 years in IT, I've had a lot of different printers, but after my experience with Lexmark, It's going to be hard to get me away from a company that not only makes a great printer, but provides better service than I could ever have imagined. I have an older X7675 "All in One" model. Early on I called with a problem they quickly determined couldn't be fixed over the phone. In not time, I had a replacement that has worked flawlessly ever since. A couple of times I had configuration problems, first on a PC and then on a MAC and they did such a great job expertly diagnosing and solving the problems by taking over my computers that I could have left and come back after a coffee break. My only complaint. The printer doesn't make coffee!
Windows vs Linux9/21/2010
The good: I received the printer within a week using budget shipping rates. Yea Buy.com Also good, the setup was painless in Windows and also painless in Linux. There weren't any gotchas in the process. The printing, scanning, copying on the windows side very good, especially nice is the duplex functions (better than I had hoped for) Only one issue so far, be sure to turn off the two sided printing when doing labels other wise expect to get printer jams. Note: I am using all functions wirelessly. Now for the bad: Linux, Linux, Linux (Ubuntu 10.4) constantly loses connectivity via wireless. Also the Lexmark toolbox does not allow for scanning like Windows does. No joy. I am sure I can scan using a USB cable, but that defeats the purpose of why I bought this particular printer. Other than those issues I'm a happy camper.
A+ very good machine9/19/2010
Bought this 8/29/10 shipped fast even on regular free shipping. It comes with good instructions both on the paper manual and there is an animation on the printer screen itself that walks you through set-up. This is my first wireless printer but found it easy to set up. It always hooks up pretty fast to the network on start-up. I like the Eco-mode and 2 sided printing I always fed my paper in both ways to print on both sides with my old printer now I just sit in the other room and print not having to worry about wasting paper. I also plugged my XD Card into the slot and selected the pictures I wanted to print right from the printer. They printed very nicely. Just today I faxed from the other room- I don't even have to be by the machine to fax how cool is that. I have not tried the business card scanner yet so can't rave about that. The only thing I wish it were a bit smaller. But for everything it does well I am not complaining. Love it:)
Five by Five9/1/2010
Ordered on Wed. afternoon and received it via Fed. Ex free delivery on thursday around 11:30 a.m. Less than 24 hours from a warehouse? in N.J. to my home on Long Island. Installation was well documented and quite simple. Up and running in less than 15 minutes. Printer worked fine, and additional software for OCR and for scanning business cards into a data base worked flawlessly. Registered online and received a letter documenting warranty extension to 5 years. Printed the letter and stapled it to the purchase receipt which I printed from Buy.com account page. Scanned some business cards...great. Scanned a page from electric miter saw manual that had text, pictures, and pictures containing text - was able to edit text and edit text within the pictures also. Have not yet tried the double sided printing and copying/scanning. Have not tried to use the wireless feature (using USB for now till I can get a wireless network set up).
Very nice printer. Takes a bit to set up but very worth it. GREAT price.
bought it on a deal, surprisingly worth the price3/18/2010
I bought this printer two months ago when I was looking for a new HP and stumbled across a great deal on this from you guys. It didn't have many reviews at the time but the price was right and it seemed to have the features I was looking for. The 5 year warranty made plopping my credit card on it a lot easier to do and since then, I have definitely gotten my money's worth. I am ussually pretty technically challenged, but the wireless setup was easy enough that my mom could do it. It prints faster and quieter than the Canon I used to have and it copy's and scans with very good quality. I haven't had to replace the inks yet but from what I keep hearing, I'll be happy about how much I save on that and how long they should last me. I am totally happy with this printer and would definitely recommend it. Best of all if it breaks on me four years from now, I'll still get to test out Lexmark's tech support since it will still be under warranty.
