I don't know too many people that will miss Lexmark printers. Or their wretched printer drivers. Or their time bomb aka forced expiration, non-refillable cartridges. Well, maybe Dell will miss them a little since they rebadge them for resale. I do think that inkjets overall are on the decline, but they will be around for quite a while yet, due to low purchase price and good photo image print quality. I think manufacturers have been shooting themselves in the foot by charging so much for cartridges. I am also pretty sure that I have been getting less print copies from each cartridge over the past year or two, which makes me even less of a fan. If manufacturers continue to rip off customers for replacement cartridges, I hope they disappear from the marketplace.
