It lacks an auto-cropping feature and the only colour controls are a pair of brightness and contrast sliders. Scan speeds were slow, though acceptable for occasional use. If you resized and recompressed the image first using Photoshop and put it back on the memory card, the problem vanished.

The X Professional All-In-One Printer from Lexmark allows you to print from virtually anywhere in your house or office over a wireless connection.

The resulting image was less than spectacular, with skewed colors and a good deal of missing detail. Inspecting the images close up revealed thin line patterns.

The problem relates more to a software bug that could hopefully be fixed with updated software. Having lex,ark automatic document feeder helped copy a stack of papers quickly and the built-in duplex feature helped save paper. Today we bring you a The X has some impressive features, including wireless printing, automatic document feeder, built-in duplexer, LCD screen and memory card Alternatively, it does support WiFi Protected Setup WPSwhich you’ll find on many routers and allows you to connect supported peripherals securely at the push of a button.


Since many digital cameras are moving towards lexmagk and larger image sizes, this problem will definitely show up unless you plan on using a very old camera with this printer. It was quick to print, too, at 7. Large image files, such as those from newer lexnark megapixel cameras or a dSLR, produced very poor results. On the front, besides the display interface, are the memory card slots and PictBridge connection.

If you want to scan something to a memory card, you can insert any supported flash device into the card reader, and during the scan it will output a JPEG image file to your card. Update Unrecognized Zip Code. Using high-yield cartridges, a mixed-colour page costs 7. This basically ruled out using the onboard card reader for anything.

Since the product is fairly new, the driver disc still had the newest version. When you insert the disc you are prompted on which software packages you want to install. Good specification, but pricey, and printing is disappointing all round.

Using the printer to print document or photos is very easy, and the Lexmark prompts take care of most of the guesswork.

Lexmark X4975 review

The x1,dpi resolution of the scanner is rather low, and we x495 at all happy with the ADF. Slow colour print speeds, a low-resolution scanner and an ADF that damaged our original documents all make this a poor choice for home or business use, despite its impressive warranty and network support.


To copy an image, you press the copy button on the front panel. If it is orange, wireless is on but not connected. The X is designed to be very easy to use with clearly labeled buttons located in one central area surrounding the color display.

The printer can hold up to sheets of standard 20lb bond paper at a time. Here you select that option, and you are then asked what the status of the wireless indicator is.

Lexmark X Reviews and Ratings – TechSpot

The document feeder has a capacity of 25 sheets. Although it has a great range of features, the X doesn’t perform well enough to justify its price.

Colour prints looked good and our business graphs and illustrations were reproduced clearly, but with colour print speeds of just 1.

Draft text was just as sharp, but the lettering was thinner, although good enough for most day-to-day printing tasks. There’s also a lengthy five-year RTB warranty.

Print quality in best conditions was fairly good, but not perfect.
