Lexmark X1150 Printer Information
The Lexmark X1150 is a basic multi-function device designed to handle the low-volume tasks of a small or home office. With the ability to print, scan, and copy in black-and-white and color, this inkjet machine is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems and offers a standard USB connection. Users will appreciate the overall production quality, ranging from simple text documents to complex color photographs, making the X1150 good for professional and personal purposes.
The input and output trays are retractable, which makes storage a bit more convenient. With the trays extended, the unit measures 10.9x17.5x19.2 inches, but the storage size is only 6.6x17.5x12.1 inches. The X1150 also weighs only 9 pounds, so mobility should not be an issue. Up to 100 sheets of plain paper can be held on the input tray at once, and a variety of other media types can also be used. Envelopes, labels, iron-on transfers, cards, and photo paper are some of the options users have when printing.
Cyan, magenta, and yellow printer ink are compartmentalized in a single Lexmark X1150 ink cartridge, with the standard capacity version yielding 140 pages and the high capacity version yielding up to 275 pages. The standard black Lexmark X1150 ink cartridge yields 205 pages and the high capacity supply yields as many as 410 pages. Replacements can get expensive if the machine is used to its maximum capacity, which is 2,000 prints per month, but third-party vendors offer remanufactured versions of the Lexmark X1150 ink to minimize the cost.
When users are printing, up to 14 black-and-white pages and 8 color pages can be produced per minute. The copy rate is a bit slower, at 13 pages per minute in black and 5 pages per minute in color. There is a one-touch copy option and each order can create up to 99 duplicates. The flatbed scanner can generate an optical resolution of 600x1200 dpi, but an enhanced resolution of 9600 dpi. The maximum resolution that can be reached for black-and-white documents is 2400x1200 dpi, while the addition of color Lexmark X1150 printer ink increases the quality to 4800x1200 dpi on the right paper.
At the end of the day, the X1150 is a bit outdated and lacks some of the features that are common among more modern office machines. However, this affordable, compact inkjet device provides the versatility and efficiency that micro work environments require. For those consumers, this is a solid purchase and a good value.
