Naw - pish.
I think the ink is expensive as well.
Very cheap, but the quality is what you pay for in this case.
if all i need it for is printing text would it do?
Get a gash, pish, cheap and nasty lexmark
You aren't exactly helping.
If you are just prinitng text, then it will be fine.
How much are you thinking on spending?
I bought an HP all-in-one job (scanner and printer) for about 45. It's excellent for printing text (it's fast etc) and it's fairly good for photos and scanning too. And the ink is fairly cheap compared to others.
HP Photosmart C3180 if you're interested.
i can't think of more than once that I've needed to get Lexmark out to fix a printer at my work, and I would run out of fingers and toes to count the HP stuff that's gone down the shitter. true that there are more HP than Lexmark printers in use there, and i very much doubt that the printers in question would be suitable or affordable enough for home use, but I wouldn't exactly say it's as black and white as people are making it out to be here - then again, they've surely had years of experience dealing with all sorts of brands of printer and would be totally qualified to answer any questions about the build and reliability of them all.
Never buy a printer which costs less or the same as a full ink refill
You can get a decent black and white laser new for 50 - 70

That's exactly what I said.
He said: "if all i need it for is printing text would it do?"
and I confirmed yes a Lexmark would do for that- the same as you.
Do you want me to print that out for you?

Wow, we're printer soul mates

Oh I see - I thought you would answer that question with either a "yes" or "no".
no, but thanks for agreeing with me.
I'm putting in a vote for the HP Laserjet P3005DN. :]
I rolled out a stack of them across our business around 6 months ago and none of them have broken at any point. It's a sleek bitch when it comes to desktop printers.
Sadly... it's 600. Lovely print quality though
I wouldn't buy a cheap printer full stop. It'll just break and cause you grief. However, if it's for printing the odd bit of text you may be alright with a lexmark.
I'm an HP person myself.
Might be worth investing in a second hand laser got my epson EPL-N1200 for 10
this thread is terrible, people are suggesting high output laserjets for businesses, what the fuck is wrong with you all? if solution_devices doesn't clarify his question by explaining what he needs one for, someone should just close this thread.
If its just text you can imitation ink for about 2 a cartridge.. good for text and pretty much anything..
not a bad printer.. known for not haveing that long of a life but ive had mines three years and been past the 10,000 print mark!
banter- this is the worst thread
i did, i just need a cheap printer for text, like essays and stuff.
lexmark aren't reknowned for their high quality output but I'd imagine for what you're needing it for it'd do the job. They're pretty reliable as well so it should keep you going for a good while.
If it's just text for essays and letters etc you're best to go and compare the prices of the actual ink-cartridges. In my experience that's where you can get really ripped off by the manufacturer.
hope that helps, if not we'd better get someone in to close this one...
