I'm very upset with Lexmark on this one. Ordered a Lexmark Z51 for a customer who needed a reliable fax. (read more)

Bought this Lexmark Z51 Inkjet Printer for photoquality. Even when new, it was never brilliant. Colour printing now never prints red, even with new cartridges. Unreliable, expensive cartridges, which clog up all the time. OK for B&W if you don't print anything in bold - it will never dry.
Rubbish, don't buy one, even second-hand. (read more)

I have stopped using my Lexmark Z51 inkjet printer altogether because of the cost of the cartridges. If you use it sporadically like I do you will find the cartridge is unusable - at £20+ each for B&W and more more colour I do not think it is acceptable. (read more)

Black ink NEVER dries...even after days, weeks, months...it still smudges. I've even tried on the best quality inkjet paper! Still smudges, for months after! (read more)

I am very discouraged by the cartridge drying up prematurely on my Lexmark Z51 inkjet printer. This happens no matter how the printer is shut down. I am considering another printer. The cartridges cost me more than the printer! (read more)

Drying up cartrigdes seems to be a general problem with the Lexmark Z51 inkjet printer. I have a Canon BJC4400 that I am looking to replace because this problem is so severe that it takes only a few days for a new cartridge to dry up. Talking to Canon technical support & E-mail has not helped. (read more)

What can i say, the Lexmark z51 is a decent enough printer when it decides to work. I must admit i have not as yet tried Lexmark support, if Matt & Shelagh's comments are true, i don't think i will. Constant problems with "will it work or not today" is enough to upset anyone, i would love to have been able to give help with an answer..... but i can't.
I would like to ask Lexmark to try a little harder & state which versions (Windows 95/98/200/ME etc) their product is totaly suitable for, &... (read more)

I've had problems with this printer from step one. First off the ink dries up several times a year (about 6 to be exact). It seems as if the holder for the ink cartridge doesn't have a tight enough seal around it to prevent open air from drying out the ink.
The printer driver for windows 9x is flawed. Several times I have gone into MSWord only to find that the printer driver is no longer present. After rebooting, the printer driver is sometimes present and sometimes not.
I've recently... (read more)

This priter is of good quality and man is it fast. It has a usb connection is of standard physical size and man is it fast. The image quality is excellent for text and picture quality is right up there to. The soft ware and drivers are easy to install and work great. The size of the ink cartriges are larger too so you won't have to change them as often. The price for the ink cartriges are right around the same as Epson and HP. This priter is a great deal you will like it. (read more)
