LEXMARK X1270 GREAT ALL - IN - ONE PRINTER AND SCANNER
Member Name: sarahlee23
Advantages: Ease of use, good quality printouts, value for money
Disadvantages: None found
I brought this all - in - one scanner a few months ago, this is the second lexmark I have brought, the other was about 6 years ago, and that was a great printer, which I had no problems with lasted me a long time.
If you find space a problem, then here is the solution for that tight computer space, the Lexmark X1270 is the answer, it has got two seperate lids, one for the scanner and the other for access to the ink cartridges, the lid for the ink compartment lifts onto a hinge, which means you dont have to fight with it to get the cartridges in. It has a pull-out tray so if you are printing more than one page, you will find this benificial to you.
The setup is simple, easy to understand, you get a big leaflet with diagrams, and the installation disk is easy to and install, and only takes minutes.
Now for the stats, the printer produces high quality prints even on cheeper paper(which I use when my son is at the helm) the ink cartridges last a while(even when my son uses it) the printer is quiet and you could easily forget you are printing, the only noise you get is when it is turned on/off but even so not that noisy. The scanner is easy to use with windows XP, no problems whatsoever. You get a little box which comes up on the computer which shows you the current ink levels, and will prompt you when you are getting low on ink.
If you purchased the genuine ink cartridges they will cost approximately £15 each, you can if you know what you are doing take the empty cartridges into a cartridge refill place which is cheeper but I always prefer to buy the genuine cartridges as it may effect print quality.
This all - in - one will set you back £50 which I think is good value for money for the package you have.
Summary: Great quality printer and scanner
