here's a review from Nov. 2008:
The Lexmark X4975 Professional offered a wide range of features that were helpful in an office environment. With wireless printing and scanning, it is no problem for many users around the office to print documents or scan items and have it transmitted to their computer. Having an automatic document feeder helped copy a stack of papers quickly and the built-in duplex feature helped save paper.
Some features - such as photo printing - came up short with a buggy photo processor that distorted high resolution images printed locally. This basically ruled out using the onboard card reader for anything. Printing from a computer resolved the issue, and hopefully a software or firmware fix resolves it. Overall, the Lexmark X4975 wasn’t that bad under most conditions, but for the price there are many other competing printers that could give better results.
* Easy step by step unpacking instructions and software setup * Wireless printing and scanning * Automatic document feeder and built-in duplex printing * Intuitive display and menu controls
I think all printers suck, and inkjets suck the most because of the cost of replacing those damned cartridges. So I'd buy the cheapest printer possible and just buy a new one every time you have to replace the cartridges . . . it ends up being cheaper :p

LED printers are both more eco-friendly than lasers (no ozone), and cheaper to run than either laser or inkjet in terms of consumables. They're generally not a crisp as laser printers, but for nearly everything I print it's not an issue. Check out OKI for example, the C3600 model is very good if you want colour. It's on my list of things to afford soon, since I'm going to start doing more printing in the near future - though I'll miss the easy duplex printing I have with my HP business inkjet 1100 (OKI has 'manual duplex support' in their windows driver only, whatever that means).
