Wireless breaks after arp cache expires


Buy something else that works properly Contacting support is difficult and only for the extremely patient. Support is not knowledgeable

Prints quickly ; Can do 2 sided printing without intervention

Install SW is poor ; Wireless stops replying to ARP requests so ; printer works for a while, then stops working for no obvious reason ; Support has not been helpful so far ; Static arp entries, if you know how to create them, can alleviate the problem

Made my Day


Printers are generally the bane of my existence, and in general installing hardware/software gives me short-term Tourette's Syndrome, and I am fairly technical. I had a Brother Wireless I returned after pulling my hair out for DAYS trying to get it to...

EXTRAordinarily easy to set up. Excellent and fast color prints (did a word doc with color background, not a streak/smear). Copies perfect/fast. Wireless scan was very impressive, simply asked me which app I wanted and then opened the app and a doc

So far none. Imaging I'll run out of color ink fairly soon, already printed 100 color pages that re full color backgrounds but that is to be expected

A fantastic printer with easy wireless set up. Buy it!


I would recommend this product. Other reviews complain about the scanner. However, if you find the instructions (which is located on the CD), it shouldn't be an issue. The wireless setup is not done through the printer, it must be connected to the...

It's incredibly easy to set up. The build is phenomenal. Wireless printing isn't a problem. The paper tray does catch the paper. The two-sided printing is a nice feature. It's very environmentally friendly and the support Lexmark offers is great

It's an extremely slow printer. The document feeder worries me when copying or scanning. The paper feeder doesn't hold much paper. I dislike the three-in-one ink (when one color runs out, I need to buy an entire new ink cartridge)


Consumer review by:

Scanning software is a nightmare.


Set up instructions were good. Print quality is OK. Scans are OK if you can live with the default settings

Custom settings, including the cropping, for the scanner are effective only for the first page. The software settings do not endure and the instructions are sparse

Lexmark X 4975 Professional - multifunction ( printer / copier / scanner ) ( color )


I bought this as a replacement to a Lexmark 4850 that died one week after the warranty expired. I primarily bought this model because it was the least expensive one with a 5 year warranty. Unfortunately the new software is even more buggy than what I...


terrible customer service, buggy software, "wireless" setup requires USB cable connection to configure, software full install took over all camera/scanner/picture functions so that I could not use Windows to import my pics from my camera

Consumer review by:

Scanner does not work reliably


Given that scanner does not work, it's multi-function status is questionable. So if you need that feature find another printer.

Price if it worked

Scanner rarely works. Help on Lexmark site note useful. It suggests turning off all firewalls which does not fix the problem
