Not all lexmarks are that bad. Keep in mind that many sub $100 printers have horrible printing economy and lexmarks tend to corner the market on low or no entry cost but high consumable cost sometimes in excess of $10,000/gal. There are printers in the canon and epson lightup that are bad. Just so happens that canon has the ip3000, a sub $100 printer that isn't as badly priced as the ip1500.Osage said:In terms of printing economy its just hopeless unless you refill
and even then your options are limited. Lexmarks are good printers in terms of printing average stuff and reliable. Just hopeless in terms of printing economy.
