Aldi are currently selling the Lexmark X2230 All-In-One printer, scanner, copier for £49.99. Does anyone know anything about this or has bought one? Is it a good buy, is it a good spec? I have an HP Deskjet 940c is it as good or better. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
I have a pair of earlier X83 Lexmark all in ones and they're good for what they are. A classic jack of all trades and master of none. Print quality is fine for text but not too good for photos - I use a Canon i865 for that. The big downside for the X83 is the cost and usage of print cartridges - a set of colour and black will set you back more than you're being asked for this printer and the X83 gobbles them. Check out this aspect first or, maybe, live with it later.
I don't know about the X2230 but I have an X75 All-in-one which I think is a very good piece of equipment, Fax and copier included. The only fault I can find with Lexmark printers is the fact that the paper feed is a roller near the right hand side of the paper which can tend to skew the paper when feeding. I have overcome that problem with a bulldog grip and a piece of old credit card. The cartridges are also expensive but re-filling your own overcomes that problem as well.
