Home users looking to print their photos at home may want to take a look at the Lexmark 5770 color inkjet. It offers excellent quality for its low price, but speeds are a bit slow. Also, it is not the most compact in its class. Lexmark 5770 ink costs are also very high for printer ink.
With so many excellent photo printers coming on the market, and digital cameras are more prevalent, home users are looking to print their own photos at home rather than pay high prices at a photo lab. With the high price of Lexmark 5770 ink cartridges, this is not the most cost-effective way to print photos at home, however. It would take a lot of photo printing to make up the difference in price, and Lexmark 5770 ink cartridges are the most expensive in their class, so competing models offer a much more economical choice.
There are memory card slots on the front of the machine for connecting a digital camera card. In fact, users can print directly from a memory card without the need for a computer, though this is difficult without an LCD screen for previewing the photos. Still, the option is available for those who wish to utilize it. The printer is easy to setup, and the manual and software walk users through the process fairly easily. There is also a nice software bundle included with features for creating photo projects for printing, such as greeting cards and photo albums.
In a review of the inkjet printer, Smart Computing mentioned its memory card slots and excellent print quality as reasons to buy but thought that competing models had better quality for a similar price. The writer also disliked the high cost of Lexmark 5770 ink, especially for home users on a tight budget.
Overall, the Lexmark 5770 is a good photo printer with some solid features, but its high printer ink costs make it a poor replacement for printing photos at a lab. Competing models have more to offer for the price.
