The Lexmark X5650 is a multifunction inkjet printer designed for the home or small office environment. It keeps the affordability of smaller models while adding more business-centric features such as faxing and an automatic document feeder. Print speed is fast, at up to 25 pages per minute for black and 18 pages per minute for color. Lexmark X5650 ink costs are a little higher than printer ink for competing models, but still affordable.
The unit's print resolution is 1200 dpi for very sharp prints. It includes both a flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder, which allows users to scan, copy and fax up to 25 pages at once very quickly and easily. The machine can function as a standalone fax machine or copy machine, so some buyers may buy it for these functions alone. Fax transmission speeds are fast, at up to 33.6 kbps, and there are numerous fax features included, such as a full keypad, 99 speed dial numbers and automatic redial.
X5650 Lexmark ink cartridges are fairly affordable. Included in the box are one color and one black Lexmark X5650 ink cartridge. There is an additional photo cartridge that gives 6-color printing capabilities for better photos, but this brings up the cost of printer ink in general.
In their review of the Lexmark X5650 inkjet, CNET Australia found it to be a very affordable option with good black printing quality. They thought its speed was disappointing, and they did not like the quality of color prints.
Overall, the Lexmark X5650 would be a good choice for buyers who want an affordable multifunction device with some business features added without a lot of extra cost. The cost of Lexmark X5650 ink makes it less affordable in the long run than competing units, but not by a lot.
