Not sure if this is ugly or beautiful. Currently think the former.

Vertical scanning is indeed a problem with sizes smaller than A4 (e.g., photos, receipts, etc.).

Of course, they could be really radical and simply go back to producing high-quality single-purpose inkjets; they seem to be hard to find now. I know for many consumers convergence is useful here, but some of us still want a proper scanner and a proper inkjet, not a "jack of all trades, master of none" device.

Not sure if it does it more me. However, I applaud the innovation. Keep the ideas coming guys ...

Very bad experience with this printer. First, uses ink like crazy. The cartridges to replace - OMG - I bought them from Amazon, were not good (for this printer). I called Lexmark, they told me - of course - I would need to use genuine cartridges. If bought all 4 cartridges are almost $80.00. If one runs out, the printer does not work anymore. Printing does not seem fast at all (I am not a specialist) I don't even like the quality of the printing. I thought I am using an all-purpose paper, maybe that is why. But even with a more expensive paper, prints the same. Then after about one year, while I was changing the cartridges, I got an error. Called Lexmark and I was told that the printhead needs to be changed. Being in warranty they send a new printhead, and it did not work. They ended up sending a new printer. Six months later, while changing cartridges (genuine), prints only in yellow. Called Lexmark they suggested I should change the printheads again. AGAIN????? I asked...They said "we understand your frustration, and can give you a discount of 10%" since the printer's warranty ran out :( This is unbelievable!!!! This is on a printer, used at home, that doesn't run more that 50 pages per month - sometimes not even 20 pages. I would not recommend this printer to anyone.
