At relatively low cost, the machine is designed for printing, scanning, copying, photo print and fax. Even with the new look, though, the print engine is little changed from its predecessors. We thought at first these flaps were designed to stop dust falling into the feed mechanisms, but considering the size of the gap between this flap and the paper, it must be pretty ineffective.
The most interesting thing at the front of the X is its two-line status display, which appears to be a white-on-black LED panel, rather than the more normal LCD. Although the size still restricts the display to around 16 characters and longer messages have to scroll to be read, the display is much brighter and higher contrast than any LCD and is easily read under low light. The control panel is well laid out, with four silver mode buttons at the top, a power button to the left and a copy start button to the right.
Below these are a number pad, menu control and specialist buttons for the address book, redial and other functions. As well as memory card sockets for all the major card types, the PictBridge socket also takes a standard memory stick, by default downloading all jpeg and tif files found to a Lexmark application on your PC. You can scan to a PC or a flash drive plugged directly into the machine.
The X runs on two cartridges, one black and the other tri-colour, but you can replace the black cartridge with a three-colour photo one to improve pastel shades. Along with its looks, the supporting software supplied with the X has been revamped. Although the copy of Abbyy Finereader OCR is as before, but other applications have been streamlined so, for instance, the Productivity Studio handles scanning, OCR, e-mailing and fax, as well as more standard photo manipulation.
You can make posters and greetings cards using this software, too. At first sight, Lexmark appears to be getting more realistic with its speed specifications, as it now quotes 13ppm for black print and 3ppm for colour. However, our five-page text print took to complete and its page equivalent took , giving real-world black print speeds of 4. Part of this is due to extended rasterising times before the first page starts to print.
Our five-page text and colour graphics document took , a print speed of 0. A 15 x 10cm photo print took from a PictBridge camera, rising to when sent from a PC. Print quality is still one of the key features of any printer and the results from the X are only fair. Text is black and pretty well-defined, though there is some slight fuzz around the edge of emboldened characters.
Business graphics look rather pale, though there is no evidence of banding and registration of black text over colour is good. The two standard ink cartridges are available in two capacities and in Return Programme and non-Return Programme versions, with a small discount on the Return Programme parts, as long as you undertake to return them to Lexmark.
Using the higher capacity, XL cartridges, we calculate page costs of 3. These costs are higher than from, for example, the Lexmark X we tested recently, around 0. Verdict Subjectively the X looks better than its predecessors, with a neater profile and a much more readable display. Software has also been improved, but print speeds are, if anything, slower than before and print quality shows no noticeable improvement. Trusted Score.
