The Lexmark X735 multifunction inkjet printer is targeted at buyers who want a simple device at a bargain price. Its print speeds aren't particularly fast, at a maximum of 15 pages per minute, and print quality suffers from the limitations of its Lexmark X735 printer ink system.
The simple design of the X735 is somewhat boring, but easy to use. It includes only two buttons on the control panel: one for power and the other for feeding paper. The input paper tray is flimsy and oriented vertically, which might make it prone to damage. Luckily, the tray can be folded down onto the unit when not in use. The output tray can also slide into the machine, creating a fairly small footprint.
The X735 is a bit larger than one might expect, though it's not particularly bulky. It measures 6x14.8x8.8 inches with the trays folded inward, and weighs only 5.1 pounds without the Lexmark X735 printer ink installed. Lexmark mentions support for many Windows versions, but not Mac or Linux, so these users are left out in the cold. A single USB 2.0 port is the only connection option provided, but should suffice for the majority of users, and it doesn't have the capacity to support multiple networked users anyway.
As with many budget inkjet models, the unit uses only a single color Lexmark X735 ink cartridge, which includes cyan, magenta, yellow and black in one unit. Prices for replacement Lexmark X735 ink cartridges are not particularly high, but with a yield of only 190 pages, they don't last long, making the cost per page quite high.
For buyers who want to pay the least possible for the most basic features, the X735 might be a good choice. Given its limited speeds, below-average print quality, and expensive Lexmark X735 ink, it is difficult to recommend.
