The Lexmark X9350 is a standard printer that has all the features that are required in an office environment. It is an inkjet printer and that makes it quite an interesting buy given the concentration of LaserJet printers in the market. The Lexmark X9350 offers duplex printing along with built-in wireless connectivity. The machine is totally automatic and there is no need of pressing different buttons for this purpose. An LCD display is at hand to help users in quick print jobs. There is a four-way button square for menu navigation, a column of function buttons and a numeric keypad. It is ideal for use in small offices and can also be used in homes.
The double sided printing requires a high quality ink cartridge and that is present in the machine. The X9350 does take around 15 to 25 minutes in setup but it is still nothing as compared to some other printers that take hours in installation. Users can seek help from the manual and instructional materials to quicken up the process.
The Lexmark X9350 offers USB 2.0 connectivity along with Ethernet features and has a Wi-Fi aerial to amplify the wireless signals. A complete Lexmark X9350 suite is available that can be installed on computers and laptops for better performance. USB and wireless connectivity is always there in case of any problems with the PC suite. The Lexmark X9350 does not have overly high printing speeds as it takes around a minute to print around 8-10 pages. Lexmark's Productivity Suite is available with photo manager and editing tools to boost the printing standards. PictBridge connections and memory slots are given to improve the performance of prints as well.
There are two 250-sheet page trays that are present right at the front of Lexmark's Productivity Suite; they in fact protrude out and constitute a distinctive design feature of Lexmark's Productivity Suite. There are two toner cartridges, one is black and the other is tri-color. Scanning features can be best used by using the optional third cartridge. Prices are not expensive especially if purchases are made from the right stores and companies.
The Lexmark X9350 also has a fax machine embedded into the system. It uses the standard facsimile procedures and modem and has average fax speed. The Lexmark X9350 is overall a good machine though printing speed could have been improved. LCD display and duplex printing is a breeze on the Lexmark X9350 along with good scanning features and above average faxing tools.
