Lexmark's latest all-purpose office machine introduces a new set of inks with a separate print head that outputs higher-quality photos than the previous model, but competing devices give you convenient features like cloud printing and a larger touch-screen display for the same price.
Lexmark Interpret S405
The Lexmark Interpret S405 is a capable multifunction printer with respectable output speed and quality, but it's overshadowed by competing printers that offer more features for less.
Lexmark Prevail Pro 705
The Prevail Pro705 is Lexmark's all-purpose office machine and we recommend it for home offices or small workgroups; just don't expect it to print out high-quality graphics or high-resolution photos.
Lexmark Impact S305
The Lexmark Impact S305's low price tag, simple setup, and straightforward features are sure to draw in budget customers with intermittent printing needs. With extra features like wireless printing and a media card reader, the Impact earns a solid recommendation.
Lexmark Platinum Pro 905
The Lexmark Platinum Pro 905 is a fully capable all-in-one business device, but its touch screen might throw a wrench in your workflow. The Smart Solutions widgets add virtual customization to the control panel, but we wish Lexmark had retained a few hard buttons as well. As the top dog in the Lexmark printer family, the Platinum Pro 905 does the job, but the HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless does it better.
Lexmark X4550 all-in-one
The Lexmark X4550 offers what most all-in-ones in this price range don't: wireless networking. Casual home users who value network-readiness will love that feature, but users who want better print quality will be happier with a different machine.
Although it's missing some fax features that many small offices and work groups find useful, the Lexmark X502n produces fast, high-quality prints. This is one laser multifunction that has a lot going for it.
Lexmark X2500 Color All-in-One
The Lexmark X2500 surprised us with its combination of rock-bottom price, full feature set, and decent task speeds. It's not for everyone, but it's a good match for a light user looking for a bargain.
Lexmark X9350 All-in-One
The Lexmark X9350 is a decent choice for the budget-minded small-office user who needs an all-in-one printer packed with features and can live without top-notch print speeds and print quality.
The Lexmark X5470 offers loads of features and respectable print speeds at a low price, but its print quality leaves a lot to be desired. You can find a similarly priced all-in-one that offers better print quality.
