Lemon. 0 for 2 on these

 

After a bit of experience, it seems the simplest way to clear the stuck fax issue is to get into the web interface and change fax handling to "Print and forward," power it down, unplug the network, power it up with the network disconnected, and let it...

These have some great capabilities, including making it easy to receive faxes and have them auto-forward to an FTP destination - instant fax server (when it works)

We have two of these at customer sites, and both have had issues. The longer-term one had the ADF roller stop pulling paper at less than 10k pages and has had the receive-faxes-to-FTP hang up on a fax several times. You can still scan to the same...

LEXMARK MX310dn

 

I don't know how everybody else is having so many issues with this printer, mine even updated without a problem and has never frozen, jammed or malfunctioned since I purchased it, and even after I moved it to the office and re-configured it.

Easy to get running fast, features comparable to top-shelf multi-function printers, has fax capabilities (though not as much usage today), network capable and is auto-detected by major OSes ; This printer was used for a year at home and then was moved...

The web interface for advanced users is not organized, some related settings are in a completely different area. Navigating that interface is a nightmare and not all options make sense. I got it set up after hours of searching online

Plagued with problems

 

Lexmark Support has been less than helpful. Half the time I'm getting routed to the wrong department or the call is getting dropped. I finally spoke to someone who gave me a beta pre-release firmware to install on the printer to try and fix it. They...

Toner is pretty cheap

Absolutely PLAGUED with issues. We have 6 of these printers, and they're all doing the exact same thing ; The printer hangs every few days blinking "busy" on the screen, requiring reboots. The fax erroneously says "line detected in wrong jack", then...

Works very well on WiFi network & Windows 8.1

 

I bought this based on price and reviews on Amazon. I connected it via Cat5 network cable to my home router and am able to print from my laptop, desktop, and Samsung Galaxy 3 smartphone. Since I don't need color, I only need black to print legal docs...

Its shiney and new and prints

 

As with all new printer purchases, the Lexmark prints better than fine. The proof shall be in the putting....Let's meet back in 3 years when I will really be able to give a strong rating one way or the other.

Lexmark MX310DN

 

Solid construction. Well packaged. Cheap cost per page. Easy to install on a wireless network (once I worked out where to install the wireless dongle).

Took a long time to work out where to install the wireless dongle. Nowhere does it say to install it in the cavity to the left of the screen which needs to be levered open with a screwdriver
