With a monthly duty cycle of 5,000 prints, the Lexmark Intuition S502 is a color inkjet printer that is a good match for consumers looking for a personal printer that can deliver high-quality photos while offering other basic office functions. Scanning comes in handy when looking for a safe way to store important documents and for getting old photographs saved on the computer. Copying and faxing will not be used as often in a standard home environment, but the option is still there.
There is a color LCD display on the top panel that allows users to manage tasks, navigate through functions and monitor the levels of Lexmark S502 ink. A maximum page yield of 600 prints can be generated from each Intuition S502 ink cartridge, which is a bit more than the yield of the start printer ink supplied in the box upon purchase. When replacements are needed, users have a couple options. The OEM versions will be on the high side of the price margin, whereas the compatible Lexmark S502 ink cartridges that are produced by third party vendors will cost less but deliver the same quality.
There is a built-in memory of 64 MB and a 100-sheet input paper tray. This compact inkjet printer weighs less than 20 pounds and can connect to a single computer via USB or Parallel port. Networking is possible through the ethernet interface and the PictBridge port allows digital cameras to connect directly. A wireless hook up is also available.
The economode will conserve the amount of Lexmark S502 ink that is used, thus making this machine even more affordable. It is Energy Star qualified and compatible with all operating systems. It offers automatic duplex printing and a maximum resolution of 4800x1200 dpi. Overall, the S502 is a good choice for an average home.
