Betrayed by your management
Really sorry for the 1,700 but the closure of the inkjet business leaves me cold.
Lexmark were even more enthusiastic than HP in virtually giving their printers away in order to sell ink. Trouble is, unlike HP, their printers tended to throw in the towel before the included cartidges were empty. Too engineered down in price. Self defeating business model.
I don't know whether quality improved as when you have disappointed a customer once too often they seldom return to find out.
