E209435 - Lexmark Interact S605 Wireless All-in-One HomeOffice Printer
I have had this printer for several months now. . . and had nothing but trouble with it. Nearly everytime I turn it on I have to go in and clean the printhead, Have not been able to connect with the internet, and can't print pictures. Those are the reasons I purchased it to begin with. the demmo was so great on TV but I do not like it and will not purchase any Lexmark products again.
This is a great all-in-one printer; I have a VZW air card so I bought a router and it works like a dream. The only caution I would put out there is that the ink is VERY difficult to find, even QVC offers very little. If you want the ink to last a little longer, you need to buy the 100XL, which is of course more expensive. The ink isn't cheap but I haven't used this new 100XL up yet so I don't know how much longer it lasts (it states 3x longer). Good printer, lousy stocking of ink in the stores.
Poor quality printer
I bought this printer over 1 1/2 years ago and at best it may work 10% of the time. It does not communicate with my computer, nor the router. I have spent an additional some of money on techs for help. I wanted something easy and I got frustrating. So sorry that I kept it. Going back to an HP.
Very easy to install
I have needed a new printer for ages, and since I purchased an HP Compaq laptop from QVC a few months ago I decided to look for an HP printer to go with it. Unfortunately, the only printers that seem to get positive feedback were Lexmark, so I decided to give this one a try. I am very pleased with it. It installed very easily.
Im using this for home computing and it rocks. You can copy and scan directly off the printer without using the computer which makes it really easy to use. I wish QVC would carry more ink for lexmark. The cartridge would be the 100 series. I was using an older all in one printer that had been giving me trouble. I was so glad to replace it with the Lexmark Interact.
SOOOO easy to connect
Absolutely the easiest printer I have ever connected to any computer. It was installed in 5 minutes. The wireless function is super and the printing quality is great!
Printer does what it says.
i love my Lexmark printer, it is easy to setup, and a joy to use. To Froggy, the keyword is Wireless yes, it simply means this works with the home wireless networking system you already have in place.
I am sorry that you were unable to print, but you are trying to use two different technologies that do not work together. So instead of bashing the printer, which works very well, try contacting lexmark or go to a box store and have them show you how to get what you need.
Enjoying Wireless Printing
This printer is working as expected, was very easy to set up to my router, and use right out of the box. I have it in the spare bedroom and print from several laptops in other rooms. Very nice!
BE READY TO SPEND MORE MONEY!!!!!
I have Verizon wireless - with the card that plugs into USB port. The whole purpose being that I can go out of state & still hook up to internet anywhere. I did not want to bother with a router -- that's why I went with this type of wireless internet. NOW I HAVE TO GO BUY A FLIPPIN ROUTER SO I CAN SIT IN MY LIVINGROOM TO PRINT. I want the printer hidden away so I can sit in front of my TV while I surf & print without hauling my laptop into the bedroom, plugging it into the printer & then hitting print. The key word is WIRELESS! HA! What a joke!! Kind of a waste of $150
Not smart enough
The printer does not easily connect with wifi or your computer.
