The Lexmark X5250 is a multifunction printer, copier, and scanner designed for the home user. Print speeds are quite good for the price, at up to 20 pages per minute for black and 14 pages per minute for color. It is not as compact as some multifunction machines, so it will require a larger footprint. Even though its upfront price is very low, Lexmark X5250 ink costs are a bit high, balancing out the savings. Users who want a very compact machine may find the Lexmark X5250 to be a little large. It measures 6.3 inches by 17.4 inches by 12.6 inches and weighs 9.9 pounds, coming in larger than most in its class. There are two sizes of Lexmark X5250 inkjet cartridges available, both standard and high-yield. Using the high-yield Lexmark X5250 ink cartridges will keep the cost per page lower, but both options are more expensive than competing models, resulting in a higher cost of ownership in the long run. The machine is compatible with all major versions of Windows, OS X, and even some distributions of Linux. The copy function can work in standalone mode, without needing to be connected to a computer, and the one-touch buttons on the front panel make copying a quick and easy function. The software included with the printer is easy to install and easy to use, and seems geared toward helping beginners accomplish tasks more easily. In a review of the Lexmark X5250 inkjet, PC Magazine gave it a rating of 3 stars out of 5. They praised its fast print speeds for text, and found its photo printing quality to be very good. The disliked its slow photo printing speeds, and felt its use as a business machine is limited by lack of faxing and an automatic document feeder. Overall, the Lexmark X5250 is a decent multifunction machine that offers all the basics to get a user started. For a little more money, buyers can find a more full-featured machine with lower ink costs.
