Summary: The Lexmark X3550 is a middle-of-the-road multifunction printer with an affordable starting price and reasonable ink refill costs. Photo prints leave something to be desired, but it performs the rest of its tasks acceptably well.
Pros: Built-in media card slots and USB port; wireless functionality is easy to install; low print costs.
Cons: Slow text prints; print and scan quality could use overall improvement, particularly photo prints; wireless costs an additional $50.
Summary: On the surface, the X3550 appears to be a budget workhorse of a printer with the enticing option of wireless connectivity. It's a pity then, that the wireless is so expensive to include, and the printer itself so slow.
