    You never fell asleep when they were printing.

    I remember buying one of their cheap printers several years ago. The quality was iffy and when I needed to change the ink cartridges I found that I could buy the same printer with new cartridges for 5.00 more than the price of replacing the cartridges in the old one and this I did!

    Well, you know you don't have to buy a Lexmark. It's 1700 people losing there jobs, so I think your comment is a bit harsh.....

    Before buying a new printer, I always check the ink costs very carefully, which is why I never bought Lexmark.

    Not all printers use ink at the same rate. Our new Z3200 wide format is incredibly frugal with ink. After 300 feet of paper, most of the toy-size cartridges that came with the machine are still between half and three-quarters full. The old Epson 7800 drank considerably more.

    Absolutely agree. There are enough unemployed around now.

    Dell inkjet printers were / are based on Lexmark printers - I guess they'll have to get a new supplier or also drop inkjet printers?

    I got a lexmark once an early one - the printers were cheap and rubbish!
    I bought a small HP machine and never looked back.
    Not great for photos but for my Major Project and Uni was fine!

    A friend of mine got a Lexmark - and it became unusable, just out of warranty. So he bought another Lexmark (different model) and, blow me down, exactly the same thing happened.

    He now has a Canon......................!
