Printer Software Updates

Static Control Ltd has issued a warning to users of Lexmark and printers derived from Lexmark. If you receive a email from Lexmark offering to upgrade your printer driver be aware that it could stop you from using anything other than Lexmark branded product. Great if you never use remanufactured or compatible products but not so good if you like to save money with cheaper toners.  Similar upgrades are apparently offered by Samsung and Epson but there are not many alternatives to the original Samsung products so its not so serious
