I bought my Lexmark 3300 Printer over 4 years ago and it still operates as if I just bought it today. I have never had any mechanical problems with it. I first bought it when I purchased my desktop computer now I uses it for printing documents from my laptop. The price was a good value and I am glad that I purchased it. It is a very high quality product and I will always purchase a Lexmark printer and nothing else. It is easy to use the scan features, for I am able to scan, save the document to my computer and then send the email document (s) . It is so easy and simple. It is also so easy to scan photos. The picture and colors are very clear. I like the fact that I can scan old pictures and email to friends.and family. I am now looking forward to purchasing a Lexmark wireless printer.
