This is an older printer from the company Lexmark. I have used this printer for my English classes. The printer is very good for scanning documents and for your basic copy. You can transfer documents scanned on the glass surface into your laptop. I have not had any major problems with the printer. You can use two types of ink for the black and white cartridge. One black and white cartridge ink prints around 100 pages while the longer-lasting cartridge prints up to 500 pages. One important hint about the cartridges-print copies using the photo format, it tends to save more ink than the standard printing usage. The Lexmark X2500 color cartridges print high-quality pages but the ink tends to run out faster than the black and white cartridge. Performance Good and reliable performance. Copy Quality Copies are usually clear to read except at the end of the cartridge cycle. For example, the color cartridges produce more pink shades at the end of the cartridge cycle. Ink/Paper Use Black and white cartridges are much more durable than color cartridges. The color cartridges do not last very long. Ease of Use The bottom buttons have choice for scan and copy. There are no complicated buttons or formatting the scanner. It is simple to use. Durability Dependable printer that can print a large quantity of texts and documents. Design Simple design. It has an outdated look but that is not the most important factor.
