Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poor manual paper feeding. Weird SMTP server setu Poor manual paper feeding. Weird insistence on setting up a confusing "SMTP server - email on the print server"?? What??. Other than that it is pretty fast and cheaper toner supplies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark for me Had a Lexmark laser printer for YEARS! there was no doubt what I would replace it with when it started to show its age. Of course the newer model has more bells and whistles I need to become familiar with. Set up fairly easy and I am not a tech wizard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine...after some help Printer works great. Unfortunately I had to have customer support spend 1 1/2 hours to set it up. I was told the printer needed additional software to be compatible with Xfinity WiFi...Being Xfinity is one of the largest companies in the country you’d think this would be the case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Magically Useful It prints things at home that I used to print in the office, when we worked in those. Magical efficiency gains for dropping off pre-address, pre-paid packages during COVID Christmas rush, when combined with packaging tape (non-Dell item). Prints wirelessly from computers and smartphones. Any issues seem to be user or phone related, not printer thus far. One downside, paper is required, and isn't magically supplied like the ones you may be familiar with in your office. Probably why it was on black Friday sell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark 2236dw - an ink delivery device The printer represents fair to good value. Set up was a little difficult bc the driver upload for the Dell laptop I own (ironically was not as simple as the uploads for the other computers in the house. Also, the 'starter' ink cartridge ran out quickly, and the ominous warnings from Lexmark not to use any ink other than Lexmark OEM cartridges reinforce the idea that the business model is not from selling printers but from selling ink. (BTW, my local printer cartridge seller explained that the company that makes the Lexmark cartridges is the largest distributor of after-market ink cartridges, so all the dire warnings from Lexmark are merely intended to drive customers to their higher profit margin branded cartridges.) Finally, given the low price, the warranty is really not particularly valuable, as the hoops you are required to jump through make the exercise not commercially sensible. But the printer works ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as good as I expected This printer would not install on my network. I had to have Lexmark technical support install it on my computer. I had to give them remote control over my system. Not something I wanted to do. Also the paper tray will only handle 20 sheets of paper or it will jam. I have not been very happy with this purchase. I have another Lexmark printer so I figured this would be comparable but it was low-end and does not even come close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Lexmark is great after the early kinks! This would have been a 'five' though in the middle of the printing documents it stopped printing and started printing gibberish on top of each page. One of my nurses' helped me fix it. I am not sure what we did to fix it, though now it is printing just fine. I do love this printer now that it is working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prints Fast and Well but set-up not hassle-free This wireless printer was not easy to set up, but once set up it works quite well. It prints fast and the print quality is excellent. The instructions initially said to use the enclosed DVD--while I'm a technological Luddite, even I know we've moved beyond that (I bought it in Dec 2020). So I had to hunt and search for online instructions, an extra step I shouldn't have had to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not buy... This is your warning... Don't buy it Well, this is the worst laser printer I have ever owned.   I have had 7 Dell laser printers, and they held up for years until I just couldn't find toners for them anymore.   Now Dell is selling Lexmark garbage.   Huge quality difference.   First, this Lexmark is just incredibly cheaply made.  Again, comparing it to comparably priced Dell brand printers of the past, the Lexmark is just thin, light, and flimsy.  It's not going to hold up to daily use before it starts to physically break.   Installation was a PITA, taking three install/uninstall tries before it would actually print.   Now it runs an error window after each page I print, and I can't get the errors to go away.   Also, the front paper feed is more of a I-need-a-paper-jam-right-now feed.   I think I have only gotten it to work once or twice.   All other tries have resulted in a paper jam.   If Dell is no longer going to sell Dell printers and instead offer this trash, then I'm going to be shopping elsewhere for my printer needs going forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK for the price Easy setup. Windows 10 did not even need disc install although it comes with many many programs--in my opinion not needed, Prints from any browser's webpage, Word, PDF's...works great as duplex printer...a bit noisy and documents are not as sharp as our more expensive laser printers--but legible. Comes with wireless, though we have not tried it--we just use USB-there's no ethernet. All in all for the price it's a good printer.
