Lexmark X5470 Printer

 

The Lexmark X5470 cuts some corners to achieve its exceptionally low $100 price tag (as of 10/25/06), but it still packs a remarkable set of features for the money. It has a 33.6-kilobits-per-second color fax capability and an automatic document feeder...

Low price ; Built-in fax and automatic document feed

Slow photo printing ; Mediocre overall print quality

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

Lexmark X5470 review

 

An inkjet multifunction printer sounds like an expensive piece of equipment, but these days, you can bring one home for a measly $100. The Lexmark X5470 is one such printer, combining printer, scanner, fax, and copier into one useful device. It lacks...

Inexpensive; nice range of features; built-in memory card slots and PictBridge port; fast text prints; decent scan quality; built-in ADF.

Poor to mediocre print quality; slow copy speed; very limited paper handling options.

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.

HardwareCentral - Lexmark X5470 All-in-One Review.

 

Of course, the Lexmark doesn't pretend to compete with peripherals costing two to five times as much. Neither wired nor wireless networking, for instance, is built in -- just a USB connector for a single PC, next to the two fax phone jacks (line and...

Another condition shared with practically all inkjets is that the X5470's advertised speeds -- up to 25 pages per minute for black and 18 ppm for color work -- are, well, good for a hearty chuckle. Using plain copier paper, the unit's Quick Print or...

Lexmark X5470 (3mice)

 

The Lexmark X5470 is an easy-to-use printer made for budget conscious users. But its lack of advanced controls, low-resolution scans, and sluggish print speeds will have the wealthier, pickier printer shopper looking elsewhere.

Built-in color fax ; inexpensive ; automatic document feeder ; included media card reader

Must swap cartridges for photo printing ; no individual ink cartridges ; no preview LCD ; software is inflexible ; slow ; lines appear in some images

Weighing only 14 pounds, the Lexmark X5470 is easy to handle and set up. It connects to your computer primarily through USB; and Lexmark also offers standard Ethernet connectivity and wireless options for $129 and $149, respectively. The printer is...

Lexmark X5470 multifunction printer

 

The name Lexmark is not usually top of the agenda when discussing brands associated with high-quality inkjet printers, so its latest MFD (multifunction device) – the X5470 – came as something of a surprise.

The Lexmark X5470 is a winner when it comes to build quality and simple, functional design. It's just a shame that print quality and speed aren't up to par with the rest of its features – otherwise we'd have had a genuinely top-notch MFD on our hands.

Lexmark X5470

 

It had to happen eventually -- meet the all-in-one printer, fax, scanner and copier with iPod style, AKA. the Lexmark X5470. Read our Australian review.

Stylish design ; Very quick black printing

Prone to paper jams

Lexmark covers the X5470 with a one-year, next business day replacement policy for customers on the eastern seaboard of Australia; those living in slightly more westbound or obscure directions still get the one year but may have to wait a little longer...

Lexmark X736de review

 

These days, office workgroup printers need to be not just fast, but smart and secure too, as well as capable of producing great quality. We see if the Lexmark X736de is up to the task.

A versatile colour laser multifunction made particularly easy to use through a well-designed and flexible colour touchscreen. While there’s plenty of input flexibility, there's no output expansion. Duplex print, copy and scan, plus full fax facilities...

If you're in the market for an affordable all-in-one, take a look at the X5470.

The Lexmark X5470 is an easy-to-use multifunction printer made for the budget conscious it's cheap to run as well as buy. However, its lack of advanced controls, low-resolution scans, and sluggish print speeds will have the wealthier, pickier...
