Summary: The Lexmark X5470 offers loads of features and respectable print speeds at a low price, but its print quality leaves a lot to be desired. You can find a similarly priced all-in-one that offers better print quality.
Pros: Inexpensive; nice range of features; built-in memory card slots and PictBridge port; fast text prints; decent scan quality; built-in ADF.
Cons: Poor to mediocre print quality; slow copy speed; very limited paper handling options.
Conclusion: As for using Photo mode for photos: An 8 by 10-inch print on inkjet paper took 92 seconds and looked fair. The same print on glossy photo paper took 5 minutes and 7 seconds with four-color and 5 minutes and 40 seconds with six-color printing. The differences between the two -- like those between four- and six-color borderless 4 by 6-inch prints (2.5 and 3 minutes, respectively) -- were hard to detect without close scrutiny.
Summary: If you need a cheap combination of printer, scanner, fax, and copier for a home office in which speed and quality are of no concern, the Lexmark X5470 could be a good choice. But if you need to make a good impression, consider spending a little more money.
Pros: Low price, built-in fax and automatic document feed
Excerpt: We're used to seeing affordable, basic multifunction peripherals for home users, but it's unusual to see one with a fax at such a low price. This is by far the cheapest of the three MFPs suitable for a home office. It's the only one without a network port, but it has a set of memory card slots, a fax modem and a basic 10-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF). Lexmark's X5470 isn't as neat as HP's OfficeJet 6310, but it's compact and attractive.
Summary: Mit Faxfunktion, automatischem Papiereinzug und Schriftdisplay ist der Lexmark X5470 auf den Bedarf im kleinen Büro zugeschnitten. Zudem hat der Hersteller dem Multifunktionsgerät Speicherkartenslots und einen Pictbridge-Anschluss gegönnt. Damit soll das Gerät auch Fotoaufgaben bewältigen.
