For an amazingly low price, the Lexmark X1240 offers a slew of multifunction features for the home or small office user. It has printing speeds of up to 17 pages per minute for black and 9 pages per minute for color. Its compact size makes it a great fit for tight spaces. Lexmark X1240 ink costs are higher than many competing models.
The machine is quite compact, measuring 6.6 inches by 17.5 inches by 12.1 inches, and weighing only 11.9 pounds. It supports most modern versions of Windows, and supports a wide range of paper sizes up to 8.5 by 14 inches. The Lexmark X1240 inkjet cartridges consist of a single black cartridge and a single color cartridge. Units like the HP C4200 use HP 74XL ink, black and color, as well as an additional special photo tank. The fact that Lexmark X1240 ink cartridges do not allow users to replace individual colors is what makes ink costs higher than competing models, which have individual cartridges for each color. This results in wasted ink and a higher cost per page.
The Lexmark X1240 can print, scan, and copy. Its maximum scanning resolution is 4800 by 1200 dpi at 48-bit color depth. This results in very detailed and sharp scans. Copies can be reduced or enlarged from 25 to 400 percent if needed. Users who do a lot of scanning and copying may find the flatbed scanner limited, and it would be recommended that they seek a model with an automatic document feeder, for easily scanning and copying multiple pages more quickly.
User reviews of the Lexmark X1240 inkjet are mixed. Many users like its affordable upfront price, but dislike its high ink costs. Users also like the robust feature set and easy setup. Some users found it to be a very durable printer, while others felt it is cheaply made and prone to paper jams and other problems.
Overall, the Lexmark X1240 is a great choice for home and small office users on a budget. It offers a lot of features for a very low price, but high ink costs will eat up some of this savings.
