Lexmark X3550

 

The Lexmark X3550 offers a lot for its price, including an inexpensive Wi-Fi option to sweeten the deal.

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.

Lexmark X4550 all-in-one review

 

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 X4550

 

Think of the Lexmark X4550 as a much-less-expensive AIO, with the built-in Wi-Fi justifying the price.

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.

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 X4550 Multifunction Device Review and Ratings

 

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

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

Wi-Fi is nice, but printing is poor

Lexmark X4550 Wireless All-In-One Printer

 

The X4550's big USP is the wireless connectivity, but what about its ability to offer decent prints? We get printing to find out how the X4550 performs. Before we look at the features offered by this printer, just consider why a Wi-Fi option might suit...

Wi-Fi printing, affordable

Slow, large

We haven't thoroughly researched Lexmark's claim that it's the most affordable Wi-Fi-enabled all-in-one printer on the market today, but with online offers showing the price as low as £64, we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Overall, this...
