Conclusion: The unit's basic print and scan functions didn't exactly dazzle us, but they were good enough. Scan quality is acceptable for copying or scanning documents for OCR, though graphics pros who want to scan photos will want something more than the Lexmark's minimal 600 by 1,200 dpi resolution (or the fake 19,200 dpi often provided via software interpolation.) Unfortunately, we were most aware of the X6570's low price when eyeing our documents' print quality.
Excerpt: The X6570's helpful installation program includes automatic print head alignment. This is the only printer in the group with built-in support for wireless networking. You have to use the included USB lead to set it up, but you can unplug it once it's configured - or use a normal cabled USB connection to print. Text print speeds were very fast, both at draft and normal quality. Draft prints were easy to read, but some letters were broken.
Summary: The Lexmark X6570 isn't particularly cheap, and there is obviously the question of whether the text output would really be good enough for business work -- in many cases, a cheap mono laser would be a better bet. However, you do get good fax facilities and colour printing, and if the wireless facilities are of interest then this makes a very decent buy.
