Lexmark product list[edit]

Do you people think there is need for Lexmark recent years product list / comparison ? Artist (talk) 20:29, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Good and bad[edit]

I'll agree that the Lexmark inkjet products are total crap. But their laser printers are the exact opposite. Even their cheaper printers include PostScript support and their higher-end printers are very heavy duty and their toners are rated for 20.000pgs whereas most laser printers these days have toner rated for 5.000pgs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.238.171.131 (talk) 08:15, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Reads like an ad[edit]

Goodness, this entire article reads like one big promotional paper for Lexmark (with the exception of the court cases). From what I've heard and seen on the web, Lexmark's printers are cheap products that are temperamental and fragile. Many customers have complained about the quality and the overall view is negative.

As someone who works for a company that sells them, this is our experience, as well. Don't forget that their ink is expensive, too. ;) Without something to cite, however, you can't state any of this in the article. You might take a look at PC World and PC Magazine's reader surveys of printers, though... 205.157.110.11 02:18, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

As someone who works for them, The consumer division that was responsible for their poorly performing inkjets was recently rolled into their laserjet divison, one which has always performed well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.131.92.22 (talk) 03:36, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Neglects to mention keyboards[edit]

Lexmark was originally a printer as well as a keyboard manufacturer. At some point keyboards became a commodity and they left that business. The fact that they had IBM's keyboard division was a very big deal. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.36.240.36 (talk) 05:28, August 27, 2007 (UTC)

true...the technology was licensed from ibm, bought, and sold to Unicomp, a small company in Lexington Kentucky in charge of the model M, an IBM original. Lexmark added a drainage slot to the IBM model M, which made it quite a bit more useful in corporate settings. To this day, Lexmark "made for IBM" keyboards still exist.

Yes, I happen to have an IBM Model M keyboard made by Lexmark in 1993. They're still sold secondhand. I'll try to find some information on when IBM licensed keyboard making to Lexmark. Moderatelyaverage (talk) 20:22, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
