Lexmark X3550 Multifunction Printer

 

The Lexmark X3550 is a middle-of-the-road multifunction printer with an affordable starting price and reasonable ink refill costs. Photo prints leave something to be desired, but it performs the rest of its tasks acceptably well.

Built-in media card slots and USB port; wireless functionality is easy to install; low print costs

Slow text prints; print and scan quality could use overall improvement, particularly photo prints; wireless costs an additional $50

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

Lexmark X3550

 

On the surface, the X3550 appears to be a budget workhorse of a printer with the enticing option of wireless connectivity. It's a pity then, that the wireless is so expensive to include, and the printer itself so slow.

Optional Wi-Fi, Cartridge recycling envelope provided

Slow print speeds, Wi-Fi option is expensive

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.

The Good Attractive features and price point. Good digital media card support. Easy to print and copy. Comes with OCR software.

Attractive features and price point. Good digital media card support. Easy to print and copy. Comes with OCR software

Minimal control over network scans. Network scans initiated only at the unit. No screen on unit to preview photos on media cards

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

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
