The Lexmark X6170 is a multifunction inkjet printer that walks the line between a home and small office machine. It has the standard multifunction features but adds some business-centric features, such as an ADF. Print speeds are fairly fast, at 19 pages per minute for black and 15 pages per minute for color printer ink, though higher quality settings will be a little slower. Lexmark X6170 ink is affordably-priced.
The X6170 improves on previous models with a lower price for its Lexmark X6170 ink cartridges. The affordable price and large capacity gives the Lexmark X6170 ink cartridges a much lower cost per page than previous models, which had expensive printer ink costs. The unit is very compact, measuring 11.7 inches by 19.7 inches by 17.3 inches, and it weighs 24.9 pounds. While not the smallest machine in its class, it has a few more features than most and is still small enough for most small offices.
The typical functions are included, such as printing, scanning, copying and faxing, but the Lexmark X6170 adds a feature not often found at its low price—an automatic document feeder. This makes it easy to scan, copy or fax multiple documents at once, without having to place each page on a flatbed scanning surface individually. Copying and faxing also work without a computer, so it can function as a very capable fax and copy machine in any room of the house or office.
In their review of the Lexmark X6170 inkjet printer, Cnet praised its ADF, its standalone copy and fax functions and its low price. They found its print speeds to be very slow, however, and found the included software to be somewhat limited.
Overall, the printer is a very well-designed multifunction that adds some nice business-centric features that even home users will appreciate. Its standalone operation may be useful for some, and the low cost of Lexmark X6170 ink is easy on the budget.
