Lexmark International Group Informative - Lexmark X1185 Printer
The Printer preforms very well I've had it about 3 years I have no complaints with the printer it self.
Printing quality is good, as is scanning. The ink prices are out of this world though so I refill my black cartridge and leave the color empty. It's just to expensive to use color. Booth the black and color cartridges only hold about two drops of ink. Use it as a black & white printer or buy some other printer. Color photos are out of the question. Oh it can print them but have a ten pack of color cartridges handy they are only good for a few pictures.
Oh and the software is primarily designed to make you waste ink, and boy it does a good job at that.
If you want to refill the black cartridge it's not hard, after you've done it once it's easy. One thing, don't overfill it. Fill it till ink comes to the top then draw about half back out or it will leak. Remember these cartridges are designed to hold a tiny amount of ink.
The company makes it's money selling ink not printers. It's a good printer if you can work around the ink thing. I've gotten ink refills at Staples and Wallmart they are a much cheaper way to go.
