Home and small office users looking for a basic multifunction inkjet printer should consider the Lexmark X5320. Its print speeds are acceptable, at up to 15 pages per minute for color and 18 pages per minute for black. It has a nice range of features and functions for an affordable price. Lexmark X5320 ink tends to be higher than competing models.
While the unit does provide excellent photo quality, it comes at a bit of a price. In order to get the best photo quality, users must purchase and install the photo Lexmark X5320 inkjet cartridge instead of the color Lexmark X5320 ink cartridge. This means users will likely need to swap the two when printing photos. This is not only inconvenient but means extra ink costs. The unit is not as compact as competing models, due to its large input and output paper trays. Although they can be folded into the machine for a more compact footprint, most users will probably choose to keep them open, ready for use.
The machine can print, scan, copy and fax. Each of the Lexmark X5320 ink cartridge printer features is generally well designed. The control panel has 1-touch buttons for a few features, such as faxing and copying, but many of the functions must be controlled in the included software to access all options. Both copying and faxing can be done in standalone mode without the need for a computer.
Compared to similar competing models, the Lexmark X5320 ink printer is less expensive, but some of its features do not compare as well. Many models with a similar or slightly higher price offer quite a bit more speed. Many competing models use only a two cartridge system, and some even have individual color cartridges. This allows users to replace individual colors, which reduces waste and lowers ink costs.
Overall, the Lexmark X5320 ink printer is a solid multifunction device that gives users the basic functions for light duty office work. Its print speeds are slow, and ink costs are high, reducing its value in comparison to competing models.
