With a sleek, black design and a lot of functionality, the Lexmark X85 is an impressive multifunction inkjet printer. Print speed is quite good, at up to 12 pages per minute for black and 6 pages per minute for color. It handles a variety of media sizes and types, but expensive Lexmark X85 ink costs could be a problem for heavy printing.
The unit measures 10.6x18.1x14.2 and weighs 15 pounds. At this size and weight, it comes in a little larger than most models in its class and price range, but it should still be compact enough for the majority of home and small office users. Included in the box is a black Lexmark X85 ink cartridge and a color cartridge. The Lexmark X85 ink cartridges are very easy to access and replace. The unit is also very easy to set up, as the clear instructions and setup disc walk the buyer through the process.
The X85 can print, scan and copy. It also has PC Fax capabilities, which allow users to send faxes over the internet. This is a nice feature for users who only need to send a fax occasionally, but it is not a replacement for a full fax function, so those who do a lot of faxing may wish to look elsewhere. Quick buttons on the control panel allow easy access to its copying function, which works without a computer.
In the review of the inkjet printer, IT Reviews liked its very low price, print quality, and included software. IT Reviews disliked the lack of a parallel port and the combined cartridges for printer ink, which results in higher cost of Lexmark X85 ink.
Overall, the Lexmark X85 is a very capable machine for an affordable price that will appeal to budget-conscious buyers. Lack of faxing and high printer ink costs could be a problem for some.
