Lexmark X5250 All-in-One Review
5 June 2004
Conclusion: Like all inkjets, the X5250 is no threat to match its advertised speed ratings, though its "quick print" mode won't keep you waiting too long for grayish but legible in-house drafts -- 20 pages of Microsoft Word text took just over two minutes, while a one-page business letter was spat out in 9 seconds.
Pros: Not only a three-in-one printer/scanner/copier, but one with borderless, six-color photo printing, for little more than the price of a good inkjet printer alone, Friendly controls and software utilities
Cons: Best text and photo quality requires slower print modes and better-than-plain paper -- and that goes double for solid-color charts and graphs, Typically short-lived, high-priced inkjet cartridge replacements
Excerpt: Lexmark International., www.lexmark.com $119.99 Direct and street Text: Graphics: Photos: 20 ppm 1200 x 4800 dpi maximum printer resolution; USB; flatbed; 600 ppi scanner optical resolution; Copier Very good rating for photo quality. Reasonably fast print speeds for business applications. No fax modem. No automatic document feeder. Relatively slow for photos. The Lexmark X5250 All-In-One earns a very good for photo output quality, but it prints at relatively slow speeds.
