Lexmark X75 Multifunction Device

Multifunction devices have always offered good value for money, but the compact X75 Lexmark takes this to new heights. For $350 you get a combined colour scanner, copier and printer.

Being a USB device, setup is simple, and the software is designed for ease of use by absolute novices. Although the specifications may not be the best, at this price it’s hard to complain: top print resolution is 1200x1200dpi, scanning offers 600x1200 resolution and 48-bit colour depth, and copies can be either colour or mono. Scanned images went through at a good speed.

We couldn’t reach the claimed print speeds of 11ppm for mono and 6ppm for colour, but the actual speeds of 7ppm for mono and 4ppm for colour weren’t too far off the mark. We were impressed with the draft mode print quality for black text. That said, you have to bump up the quality for acceptable colour output.

The X75 also isn’t such good value when it comes to consumables, so we guess that’s where Lexmark is making its money. At around 12 cents per page of mono printing, you won’t want to be churning out too much.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
