I bought the Lexmark Prospect Pro205 all-in-one 7 months ago for my home office. I bought it on sale and specifically because it claimed to do 2-sided printing. Installation was simple and quick, including setting it up for wireless connection to our desktop and laptop computers. Now the printer sits up high on a shelf where the cats can't reach it and we can send print jobs from anywhere in the house-- even from outside on the patio.

[The cats are intrigued by the double-sided printing process. The page prints out, then gets pulled back in to do the other side. THe cats think it's a fabulous toy!]
The two-sided color printing is the best feature. I've never seen this in a home printer before. The print quality is fantastic. I also scan a lot (receipts) and can choose pdf, jpg and different resolutions, color or B&W. I also use the copier. I've never used the fax: I can scan anything to a pdf and email it.
The ink catridges are unique- they're little bottles of ink. For the same price as those other manufacturer's sealed square cartridges, we get a lot more use.
Aside from being an exceptional printer, it comes with a 5-year warranty and lifetime technical support, with priority phone support. I haven't needed to use it but it's nice to know it's there.
This is truly one of my best purchases ever. What an awesome piece of technology!! Thank you Lexmark!
