Excerpt: The P6250 All-in-One printer/scanner/copier is Lexmark's very first direct print solution that will work without being connected to a host computer. It will print directly from all the main digital camera memory card variants, including xD, without an adapter and you can print directly, using a USB...
Conclusion: The Lexmark P6250 is easy to use, with a color LCD that offers such features as ink-cartridge loading instructions. It also offers significantly better speed than most ink jet AIOs, particularly for business applications.
Pros: Reasonably fast performance for business applications and photos. Direct printing from cameras and memory cards. Includes a utility to scan and fax using your PC's modem.
Cons: No built-in fax modem. The good rating for photo output is below expectations for an ink jet-based photo printer.
Conclusion: Even in four-color instead of six-color mode (using the black instead of photo ink cartridge), the Lexmark should satisfy home users seeking a capable photo printer. The software suite includes an image editor for red-eye fixes and other touchups; you won't find Photoshop- or Paint Shop Pro-level...
Pros: A color printer/copier/scanner that specializes in photos, whether printing digital or scanning or resizing glossy ones, with extra-friendly hardware and software
Cons: Pale, poor-quality output at high speed; no fax, automatic document feeder, or double-sided printing; USB cable not included
Summary: While this unit has plenty of great features, we were disappointed by its print and photocopy quality. Photo printing may require a little fiddling in an image editor beforehand to get the colour balance correct.
Pros: Quiet printing, good quality colour scans, user friendly
