The Lexmark 7200 is a color inkjet printer targeting home and small office users who are looking for a basic color unit for light-duty printing. Its print quality is decent, but its slow printing speeds fall behind the competition, at up to 8 pages per minute for black and 3 pages per minute for color. The high cost of Lexmark 7200 ink makes it expensive to own.
For many home users, space is of premium importance, so a printer needs to be compact. The Lexmark 7200 has the small footprint and compact frame that home users want, and it is able to fit into tight spaces fairly easily. The paper trays can also collapse in when the machine is not in use. The Lexmark 7200 ink cartridges include a single black cartridge and a combined tri-color cartridge. The combined cartridge often results in more wasted printer ink, compared others with individual color tanks. Expensive prices make replacing Lexmark 7200 ink cartridges hard on the wallet.
The unit has a maximum printing resolution of 1200 by 1200 dpi, so its prints are fairly sharp. Text is the main standout, with graphics and photo quality being generally mediocre. With newer models offering higher resolutions for a similar price, the 7200 falls behind. The paper capacity is 150 sheets, which is quite good for a machine aimed at home users. With the majority of budget inkjet printers offering only 100 sheets of capacity, the extra 50 sheets could make a difference for consumers who do a lot of printing in a day.
The Lexmark 7200 tends to lag in comparison to most other models in its class and price range. Its lower price is appealing, but the high cost of Lexmark 7200 ink is prohibitive.
Overall, the Lexmark 7200 doesn't have the print quality or speeds of other models in its price range, and its printer ink costs are high.
