Expert Reviews

Lexmark X4550 Reviews

Trustedreviews reviews the Lexmark X4550 and writes;
“It would be good to be able to sing the praises of the X4550 and its wireless connection makes it particularly easy to deploy – it doesn’t have to be tethered to your PC. However, that’s about all we can say in its favour. It’s very slow, particularly when printing in colour and printed output on plain paper isn’t worth the wait. At £90, we’d rather forego the Wi-Fi and look at faster, prettier prints from the competition.”

User Opinions

Lexmark X4550 User Reviews

Great wireless printer
“This printer works like a charm. After the setup, which was very easy, we put this in the middle of the house for everyone to use. It works just as you would expect. Scanning is simple, you just need to be at the printer to put the items to scan on the top part of the printer. I had read reviews about people having trouble with the scanning and set up. We are running Vista with this printer, and have no problems. We’ve printed pictures on print paper and it is very good quality.” – by Rachael R. Wickery

Excellent Printer
“This is a nice printer, we use it with our notebook and can print from anywhere in the house. The copy feature is great, it allows us to enlarge copys or photos. The standby mode is also great, because you can turn the printer off and it comes on automatically when you send a print job to it. Overall, a great printer for the price.” – by H. Lavespere

love love love this printer
“The wireless option is great. I have one computer hooked into the router, one wireless computer, and both connect to the printer seamlessly. You can put the printer anywhere your wireless network goes — your office, your closet, your laundry room, and still be able to access it from any computer on your network. When scanning, you just push a button on the printer telling it which computer to send the document to, and as long as the computer is powered on, it’ll send! I love it. I’m using this for casual printing/copying. The printer/scanner/copier works great. The fax option also works perfectly, but you have to use your computer/fax modem as an intermediate.” – by MeganTheGreat

Awesome wireless printer
“I’ve owned this printer for 4 months. I wish I had bought it from Amazon. I would have saved $30 plus S&H. I love this thing. I’ve had no problem with wireless connectivity, and I’m a newbie to this. Just follow the directions. I run it off my home network with a desktop and lap top, both wireless. The printer lives in a room on the other side of the house from my office and bedroom (where I use my computers most). It doesn’t matter which part of the house I’m in, it picks up the signal and prints high quality documents fast. The resolution and color printing for photos is awesome, unless you are a photographer and must have the best of the best for professional work. Then you wouldn’t be reading this anyway.” – by bezoarrn

Lexmark printer evaluation
“Printer works relatively easy however, installation of this (wireless) printer was rather frustrating. The computer it is working with is a laptop and instructions were inadaquite. It took three or four tries but once installed operating instructions are easy to follow.” – by N. Langford

Wi-Fi All in One
“I love the upgrades on this all in one–digital display, multiple scanning formats, automatic paper type detection, borderless printing, multiple replacement cartridge choices (high yield, low yield, photo). I have my printer upstairs in my office and I printed a 3 page text document via my wireless laptop. It was done printing before I walked upstairs to retrieve the papers. Very impressive! I am not a big photo printer; my main use is text printing (reports), and occasional copying, scanning, faxing and limited photo printing. For my purposes, this is a great all in one.” – by dublgrace

Amazing bang for buck
“This is a really good piece of hardware. Easy to install and set up — just follow the instructions to a T. The setup and software for scanning, and image management is way better than anything HP has. I’ve been using HP printers for over 10 years, and will no longer be buying them. HP refused to sell replacement parts for the all-in-one 7400 which I’d bought for $540 and went bad a month after warranty expired. I was not asking for a new printer or anything, just that HP sell me a carriage head.” – by Sunit Gala

Super impressed
“Set up, even the wireless connection, took approximately 10 minutes. My husband had it on his notebook, wirelessly, in another 5-10 minutes. The color is very true. Although photo printing is fairly slow, it is very good home quality for a “not photo” printer, and it does something the HP never managed to do, no matter what the settings – print an actual borderless 4×6 photo. I do use Snapfish for most of my photo printing needs, but this is terrific for my kids’ school projects and other times when I need a couple of photos printed right away. The scanning function is very cool – we can scan and send to either computer, even choosing multiple programs for the destination, all wirelessly. The copying function is also quick and easy.” – by cmp

Impressive Wi-Fi Printing Technology
“Easy to setup. Got it today and I love it. The wireless feature extends to my walk-in closet. That is where I decided to keep the printer. So far, no problems. I tried scanning and it is awesome. It lets you choose the software you wish to save your scanned document to. The copying is super easy. I mean, this is a great product overall. And, last but not least, I checked the prices of the ink cartridges, and compared to other brands, these are very affordable. Highly recommended printer!” – by A. Sebyl Sholler
