The Lexmark 5700 is a color printer that focuses on sharp text quality. It is designed for home and small office users with its compact size and affordable price. It also has excellent photo quality, though it requires an extra cartridge for the best quality. Lexmark 5700 ink is more expensive than competing models.
Lexmark 5700 ink cartridges come in three varieties. There are black and color Lexmark 5700 ink cartridges included, but users who plan to do a lot of photo printing may wish to add an optional photo cartridge. Unfortunately, this adds to the already high printer ink costs, and Lexmark 5700 ink is already the most expensive in its class.
For a color inkjet unit, the machine is very compact, measuring 17x8x6 inches. The unit weighs a very light 7 pounds, so it is easy to move or transport. This makes it an excellent choice for travelers or college students. Included on the software disc is a bundle of extras for creating t-shirt designs, greeting cards and other fun projects that will be appealing to families. The machine supports a wide variety of media types and media sizes, though it doesn't print banners, which is unusual for inkjet printers.
In a review of the Lexmark 5700 inkjet printer, PC World praised its fast printing speeds and liked its clean text quality. They found its design to be sturdy, and liked the addition of a manual feed slot for alternate paper types. They disliked its large power supply, which takes up a lot of space, and thought that competing models had more to offer for the price.
Overall, users looking for an affordable color printer for light-duty use may like the Lexmark 5700, but its high cost of printer ink, the need for an extra photo cartridge and lack of banner printing make it difficult to recommend when competing models offer more.
