DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRINTER

 

have had nothing but problems since the first day I purchased this printer (have had it for only 6 months). Lexmark sent me a new printer head. I repalced it myself and still get the error. I called the company and of course I spoke to someone from India who was difficult to understand and knew less than I did. She tried to update the firmware with no success (1 hour & 30 min later). She told me that she will esculate the claim to another tech who will contact within 48 hours, REALLY??? I'm I supposed to sit by by phone until they call me back??? DONT BY THIS UNIT!!!

Compact design

Slow operation, Flimsy construction, Unreliable

Lexmark Interact S605

 

The Lexmark Interact S605 color inkjet multifunction printer avoids being just another $200 (as of May 22, 2010) printer/scanner/copier by including a 4.3-inch color LCD touchscreen for its control panel (think iPod Touch or iPhone). Unfortunately,...

Automatic duplexing ; Touchscreen controls

Washed-out copies ; Pricey inks

This machine has a few nice features, but its expensive inks make it a dicey deal for small or home offices.

The S605 can print, copy, and scan—you can scan to your PC, to a memory device, or to e-mail; it will open your e-mail client and attach the scan to a message. It can print from Lexmark's SmartSolutions Web apps, a memory card, or a USB key.

Prints from and scans to multiple sources. Color touch screen. SmartSolutions Web apps. Fast photo printing

Sub-par photo quality. No fax. No Ethernet connectivity

The Lexmark Interact S605 is a light-duty home-office MFP with a gorgeous touch screen and the ability to print using SmartSolutions Web apps.

Review: Lexmark Interact S605 multifunction printer

 

The Lexmark Interact S605 multifunction printer has a few nice features, but its expensive inks make it a dicey deal for small or home offices.

The Interact S605’s 4.3-inch touchscreen control panel is its standout feature. Not only does the touchscreen look great, but Lexmark did an excellent job with its icons and menu structure, making it intuitive, easy to navigate, and well thought out....

Review: Lexmark S605 all-in-one printer

 

Lexmark overcomes past hurdles with a good if mixed AIO printer.

Lexmark Interact S605 All-in-One Printer Review

 

Review of the Lexmark Interact S506 all-in-one inkjet printer, which supports wireless connectivity.

Expert review by:

Lexmark Interact S605

 

This all-in-one turns out documents and photos at respectable speeds and offers some fresh ideas, but don't mistake it for a photo printer. It's meant purely for small-business and personal-document printing.

Fast printing, scanning, and copying speeds; amazing LCD; quick setup and installation; innovative features

Lesser photo quality at larger print sizes; limited connectivity; limited Internet access

Anyone with typical home-office printing needs would do well to check out the Interact S605. It's easy to operate, comes with some nice features, and is fast enough to beat most of its competition. We would have liked the option to connect by Ethernet,...

Worst networked printer I've ever had. Wireless capability nearly non-existent. Loses connection all the time (even in the middle of printing a page). Freezes up and requires a reboot of my PC to print another page. Wireless scan worked once, now the...

None of any note

Wireless capability nearly non-existent. Loses connection all the time. Freeze up and requires a reboot of my PC to print another page. Wireless scan worked one time, now the Printer Home App can't even find the networked device.
