I needed to replace my Lexmark X1185 printer...the black ink cartridge was not reaching the paper, and the color side was not printing as well. I had just bought new cartridges and figured it might be better to swap out the same model of printer instead of buying a new one and get a couple of more years use from my whole set-up.
I figured wrong.
The item was advertised as a fully-working printer/scanner/copy machine. But it wasn't. The paper feed mechanism was not working. Without paper that pretty much killed the purpose of buying it.
The machine I had wasn't more than 2 years old and only used moderately. The machine I order couldn't have been much older. I have my doubts about Lexmark products. They don't seen to hold up well, and the company doesn't like to support their older products.
I won't be buying any used electronics on Ebay again.
The Lexmark JetPrinter X1185 is an excellent multiple use printer. It scans, copies, and prints with ease. Scanning is as simple as using the simplest of copy machines, and copying is just as easy. Printing is a breeze and it can print letters, envelopes, cards, and labels quickly and effortlessly.
I would highly recommend this printer to anyone who would like an easy to use, multiple use copier.
I already had owned the Lexmark X1185 before the purchase on ebay (which did not go through the seller claimed it did not work after I WON FOR .99. i just wanted to purchase another X1185. I really love my Lexmark X1185 All-in-One it is simple to use all my work comes out clear and professional. The cartridges is not all that expensive. I am always finding sells on ebay or Amazon for the Ink cartridges that it uses 16/26 17/27 both are compatible with this printer. The printer prints very clear pages,photos. It has a Lexmark PRINTSHOP built into it where you do your scans, copies, photos. I MUST NOT GET IT ALSO HAS A BUILT IN FAX. The only thing you have to make sure of which is MINOR is when you replace the INK cartridge you made sure you hear the snap or the printer will make a LOUD NOISE & the Lexmark built in computer system will notify you also). (Informing you the cartridge need reinstalled). This is a great printer when lexmark made this printer they did a good job. It changed my mind about Lexmark products I was purchasing HP products and always having trouble with their printers so I decided to try Lexmark(advice from a friend). You won't go wrong if you purchase.
I had one of these before, and really liked it. My only concern was the cost of the cartridges, but have found that I can use generic cartridges and it does just fine. I like the quality of the print in black and white, and in color. The scanning function works OK, but I have had a bit of a time trying to get it right. Copying is easy as can be. I used the fax function by hooking an external modem on the computer, and used it that way. it worked fine for me. I have access to a fax machine now, so I really don't use that function very much. With all things taken into consideration, this has been a pretty good machine for me. This printer came with the installation CD, so I didn't have to get in touch with tech support to get another one. If you have Windows 98, you can have a bit of a time getting another installation CD. I would suggest that if you have access to a burner, to make a spare and tuck it away. I am enjoying this printer very much.
I purchased this printer for the sole purpose of using it as printer to print text documents only; and I'm glad that is the only thing I had in mind.
The printing quality is only average. Contrary to what others here believe, I found this printer to print along the lines of the older bubble jet printers.
If you're looking to print professional looking documents or something similar, skip this Lexmark printer.
