Lexmark is well-known for producing very inexpensive printers that just cover the basics, but the Lexmark F4270 is an inkjet all-in-one that does more than that, integrating copy, scan, print, and fax functions in a device that is still surprisingly affordable. The only obvious sacrifice is in print speed, which can be a bit slower than the average. Operating costs from printer ink will stay low, as Lexmark F4270 ink is available at low prices.
The maximum rated speeds of the F4270 are 19 pages per minute for black and 10 pages per minute for color, but higher quality settings will bring the numbers down quite a bit. This is not to say that its performance is terrible, but buyers should know what they are getting into.
Nevertheless, the various functions of the device are quite easy to use and to access. The control panel is more streamlined than most, without the extras such as a color screen, but it's clearly marked function buttons are simple to understand, and even the most inexperienced of home users should have no trouble understanding the unit's operation, even if they require a bit of help from the user manual.
On the subject of printer ink, the Lexmark F4270 ink cartridges are typical for a home inkjet, in that they use only two types: a single color and a single black tank. The color Lexmark F4270 ink cartridges actually include three colors inside, which can often mean extra waste if a single color runs out before the others. Still, the price of Lexmark F4270 ink is reasonable, especially compatible versions.
For buyers who need only the most basic functionality and are looking for a low price, the Lexmark F4270 is a good selection. Don't expect fast performance or advanced features, but it gets the job done inexpensively.
