Users looking for a multifunction device for a very affordable price will want to look at the Lexmark X1270. It offers printing, scanning, and copying all in a very compact design that is great for small spaces. Print speeds are up to 17 pages per minute for black and 9 pages per minute for color. The high cost of Lexmark X1270 ink may eat up some of the initial savings on price, however.
Unlike many competing models, which have separate cartridges for each color, Lexmark X1270 inkjet cartridges combine it all into a single color cartridge. This means more wasted ink and a higher cost per page. Lexmark X1270 ink cartridges are fairly affordable, but not enough to make up for the extra costs involved with the combined cartridge.
The X1270 measures 6.6 inches by 17.5 inches by 12.1 inches, and weighs 11.9 inches. Its height does not take into account the vertical input paper tray, however, which requires extra space. The machine can print, scan, and copy. Print quality is decent for the price, but not as good as machines costing only a little more. 1-touch copy features are included for fast copies. Maximum scanning resolution is 1200 dpi optical and 4800 dpi enhanced, which gives excellent scan quality. While the unit does not include faxing capabilities, it does have a PC Fax feature, which allows users to send a fax through their internet connection.
User reviews of the Lexmark X1270 inkjet are very mixed. Many users praise its low price, and mention that it meets their expectations, especially when taking into account the low upfront price. Many users criticize its high ink usage and high ink prices, especially in comparison to other products, and a few report reliability issues that caused the X1270 to stop working after some time.
Overall, the Lexmark X1270 is a decent machine for a very low price. For a little more money, users can get a more reliable machine with more features, and its high ink costs somewhat outweigh its affordable price.
