The Lexmark X1185 is a multifunction device made for the home or small office environment. It has decent printing speeds, at 14 pages per minute for black and 8 pages per minute for color, and it also includes PC Faxing. Lexmark X1185 ink is a bit on the expensive side.
The affordable price of the Lexmark X1185 is certainly appealing, but the upfront price is only a small part of the overall cost of a machine. Lexmark X1185 inkjet cartridges tend to be more expensive than many competing models. The main reason for this is that the color Lexmark X1185 ink cartridge is a single unit, with all three colors contained in it, whereas many competing models have separate tanks for each color. This makes for less wasted ink.
The machine can print, scan, copy, and fax. As mentioned, it also includes the ability for PC faxing, which allows users to send a fax from a PC directly. This eliminates the need to print a document, then scan and fax that page. Instead, users can send a document to the printer for faxing just as easily as sending it to be printed, without the need to waste paper. This is a very quick and convenient option that will save time and paper.
User reviews of the Lexmark X1185 inkjet are not very favorable, unfortunately. Many users complain of its poor build quality and reliability issues. After a year of use, many users report that the machine has started to fail, or that certain functions no longer operate. Many users also complain that its ink is expensive and its ink use is very high. Users do like its affordable price and its many features.
Overall, the Lexmark X1185 is a very affordable multifunction device with a lot of features for the price. Unfortunately, its reliability issues and expensive ink prices make it less of a value than it first appears to be.
