The low price tag sounds like a good deal until you view the photos you've printed.

Lexmark X4550 all-in-one


The Lexmark X4550 is a high-end version of the X3550, which we reviewed recently. The two printers offer the same design and feature set, with the exception that the X4550 adds wireless networking for an additional $50 (though it lacks an Ethernet port...

Built-in wireless networking; speedy text prints; onboard memory card slots and PictBridge port; good color scans

Text, graphics, and photo printing need improvement; very slow 4x6 photo prints

The Lexmark X4550 offers what most all-in-ones in this price range don't: wireless networking. Casual home users who value network-readiness will love that feature, but users who want better print quality will be happier with a different machine.

Lexmark X2250 All-in-one Printer


The Lexmark X2250 All-in-One is a simple, inexpensive multifunction printer that costs just $100. The most obvious sacrifice it makes to achieve that price: The control panel on the dark, plain case has no LCD. In addition to the power button, it has...

Scanning on the flatbed scanner was also very user-friendly. Touching the scan button on the front panel opens up the All-in-One Center software; there you can indicate the type of document you are scanning, and as a result the software will choose a...

Lexmark X3550


Although it's weak on text quality, the X3550 delivers reasonably high-quality graphics and photos, reasonably fast speed, and conveniences that other home AIOs lack. These include the ability to scan and fax as a single operation using your PC's fax...

Wi-Fi option available. Reasonably fast for the price. Prints, scans, and faxes using a PC fax modem. Scans to a PC e-mail program

Subpar text quality, even for an ink jet. No automatic document feeder. No built-in fax modem

The Lexmark X3550 is a little shaky on text quality, but otherwise it offers reasonable speed and output quality, plus an inexpensive Wi-Fi option.

Lexmark X4550


There are at least two ways to look at the Lexmark X4550 ($129.99 direct). If you take the cup-is-half-full view, it's extraordinarily inexpensive for an AIO that includes built-in Wi-Fi. If you take the cup-is-half-empty approach, you'll focus on the...

Built-in Wi-Fi. Prints, scans, faxes using PC fax modem, scans to PC e-mail program. Prints from cameras and memory cards

Slow. Severely subpar text quality. Relatively low-quality photos for an ink jet

The Lexmark X4550 offers built-in Wi-Fi at an extraordinarily low price, but its speed and output quality is more appropriate for a much-less-expensive AIO.

Review: Lexmark X4550 Wireless Thermal Inkjet Printer


Wireless and USB printer with scan, copy, and photo print.

Attractive features and price point. USB and wireless network connectivity; Print quality and capabilities exceed expectations

Incomplete wireless setup and installation instructions. Poor tech support for Macs. Unstable wireless connectivity

I am happy to find that wireless printers have finally caught up with other wireless devices, and at attractive price points. The Lexmark thermal inkjet printers boast many attractive features that make it difficult to choose the best model for you.

Lexmark X4550 Multifunction Device


Though its text quality could be better, the ease of printing, scanning, and copying photos to multiple PCs wirelessly makes the Lexmark X4550 an attractive choice for a family printer.

Inexpensive; easy to use; straightforward wireless setup

Mediocre text quality; slow printing

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Lexmark X4550 review


It might be wireless, but for usability the X4550 leaves much to be desired

Wi-Fi ; Quick mono printing

Expensive to run ; Slow colour printing ; No colour LCD

Lexmark X4550


Lexmark reckons wireless connections are set to saturate homes and offices across the nation. To this end, many of the models in its new range eagerly...

Wi-Fi, Simple to set up

Text quality wasn't sharp, Image quality was average

This is a worthy but slightly dull MFD, enlivened by the presence of Wi-Fi.

Lexmark X4550


Is the presense of wireless enough to make this Lexmark all-in-one a contender?

However, our five-page colour text and graphics print took a lot longer, at 3:12, giving 1.6ppm, really very slow, even for a machine in this price bracket. Finally, the 15 x 10cm photo print took 2:09 running from a PC, 2:22 with a PictBridge...
