The Lexmark Prospect Pro205 Wireless 4-in-1 isn't just a printer: it also functions as a scanner, copier, and fax machine, making it an ideal one-stop solution for the home or office. This device features thermal inkjet technology to provide outstanding printing resolution of up to 2400 x 1200 dpi (black) and 4800 x 1200 dpi (color), with speeds up to 33 PPM (black) and 30 PPM (color)1.
Using 48-bit depth technology, the Prospect Pro205 can scan images at resolutions of up to 1200 x 2400 dpi, ensuring that digital reproductions are faithful to the originals. It also has a multi-page document feeder that lets users scan or fax up to 35 pages at a time.
Tomorrow's Wireless Technology Today
With the Prospect Pro205, you can print from wherever you want without being confined to the printer's location. A fast and easy wireless installation allows multiple users to print from virtually anywhere in the home or office2. Wherever you have a signal, you can print.
The printer's WiFi-n connection also provides up to three times the coverage of traditional wireless networks, and its quick transfer speeds ensure that your print jobs will always get through.
To ensure crisp, highlighter resistant mono text, vivid, razor sharp images, and bold colors, the Prospect Pro205 uses Lexmark's patented Vizix ink cartridges, engineered for intense ink-droplet precision and resolutions of up to 4800 x 1200 dpi. And because this unit takes individual cartridges, you only have to replace the colors you need, which helps you save money and cut down on waste.
XL Cartridges Save Time, Resources
To save even more money, this efficient unit takes 100XL black ink cartridges, which let you print three times more paper between cartridge changes3. And because you get more yield between changes, you'll get more done in less time.
Convenient Business Card Scanning Software
The Prospect Pro205 includes exclusive Business Card Scanning software that allows you to easily scan and save information from business cards, such as name, address, and phone number. Scan up to eight cards at once and sync them with your address book software. That's real time saved.

Top Customer Reviews
The packaging of the product is top-notch. The unit was thoroughly taped (at least 10 separate pieces) to protect the unit during transit, and the printed documentation was fancy although I never needed to read it. Of course, the highlight is the aforementioned XL ink cartridges, and the package also comprised of a USB cable, phone lines, and an installation CD which includes OCR software. The installation itself was a breeze, and the video animation was helpful. The construction of the unit has thoughtful touches: a spring-loaded button opens the document feeder casing to clear jams, and the glass to copy/scan documents has clear arrows telling you where to position the document. The unit is made in China, and the ink cartridges in Singapore. Cold start up time is about 39 seconds, wi-fi connectivity about 15 seconds longer if it works (more on that later). Warm start up time is about 6 seconds.
As for print quality, on premium inkjet paper, I'm very impressed. I printed out maps from Bing 3D using "Best" quality setting, and friends could not believe how sharp the prints were (you could see tennis court boundary lines).Read more ›
Overall I found this to be really good! This is my first Lexmark product and I was a bit skeptical initially. The instalation was a bit rough as its driver clashed with my Logitech webcam's driver. The Lexmark support was friendly and trying to be helpful but they had no clue why the installation was failing. After digging deep into the Windows error, I found from the web what the possible problem could be. Once I uninstalled the Logitec driver, the Lexmark installation was a breeze. (I am yet to re-install the logitech webcam - so don't know what would happen then :))
The installation document and s/w are really top notch - with good graphics and explanations. I set it up as a wireless printer (ofcourse!) for my home with 2 desktops and 2 laptops.
This printer's features have surprised me no end. It comes with full (XL sized) ink cartridges, which is a big plus. Its a true wireless multifunction. I can scan and send the PDF to any of my desktops / laptops wirelessly. It does dual side printing. Its controls are very intuitive.
Lexmark gives a whopping 5 year warranty on their printers, which is a big plus. (Mind you, I have had bad experiences with extended warranties from Comp USA, Good Guys, Wards (remember any of them????) etc. as they folded before their warranty expired :) - hopefully Lexmark is more stable than them.
Overall, I am a happy Lexmark customer now. I keep checking on my printer once in a while and so far can't stop admiring it.
Hope this was helpful.
First things first:
This printer was packed such that the instructions and installation CD, were right on top. No foraging around looking for this essential piece of information. You receive the printer, this folder of information with the CD, a power cord, a USB cord and a phone cord.
THINGS TO SET UP THE FIRST TIME:
When you get this printer, you will need to do the following:
1. Install the SW
2. Update the SW
3. Communicate with your computer during setup
4. Install the Print head
5. Install the inks (4 in all)
6. Hook up to your wireless network
7. Hook up to your FAX if you choose to use it such
8. Run a test print.
And it goes so smoothly you can't believe you did all this!
Key here is to FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS.
One of the first instructions tells you not to hook up anything and to follow the directions as to when to hook stuff up. I don't know what happens if you don't listen. I do know that if you follow directions in less than a half hour you will have a smoothly hooked up printer that is not only accessible to the computer you set it up with, but clearly visible on your network.
The directions show up both on your computer due to the wizard you are following during hook-up, but some also are on the printer display once it is active.
I found insertion of the ink cartridge to be a bit questionable. I felt I had to press harder than I would have expected to. I did get a click to confirm, but suspect others might not press hard enough resulting in improperly inserted cartridges.Read more ›
