Some buyers searching for an all-in-one machine have specific requirements, and they want the fastest speeds and most advanced features. Other buyers just want a simple, inexpensive all-in-one inkjet for home use, without the frills or the extra cost. The Lexmark X74 makes a great fit for this category of buyer, and even the printer ink is simple to replace, with only two types of Lexmark X74 ink to purchase.
The average home user won't care about faxing, and so it is nowhere to be found on this device. What it does offer is copying, printing, and scanning, with options for color or black and white with each function. Printing speeds can reach up to 9 pages per minute, but normal and high-quality settings will be slower. The unit is certainly not for the user who needs fast speeds, but better for those who want cost-effective printer ink and an affordable price from their inkjet model.
On the subject of Lexmark X74 ink cartridges, there are only two: one color and one black. Although the OEM versions are quite pricey, especially for a fairly small page yield, compatible Lexmark X74 ink cartridges come in at a fraction of the price, which actually produces a reasonable cost per page, making the unit very economical.
A compact design will be a good fit for limited spaces, with the machine measuring 6.6 inches by 18.1 inches by 13.3 inches. It also weighs a little under 10 pounds, so a single user can lift it with ease.
The X74 may not be the most feature-rich device that money can buy, and it certainly doesn't compete well on speed, but it has a very low price that makes it a good choice for college students and home users who don't require a lot from their printer. The low cost of Lexmark X74 ink is another bonus, but stay away from the pricey OEM versions.
