Lexmark P6350

£150 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Lexmark

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

As far as multifunction devices go, you could do a lot better than this effort from Lexmark. It's slow, the print quality is no better than reasonable and it costs a lot. Despite the proud claims from Lexmark that the P6350 is capable of printing 24ppm (pages per minute) of text, we only managed to get it to print at 6.5ppm. Colour prints emerged at a rate of 5ppm, as opposed to the quoted 18ppm.

Quality wasn't much to shout about, either. Although text at the highest setting was decent, in draft mode it was too light, and not especially crisp. Graphics weren't much better, and the P6350 took three minutes to produce a very average 4x6in photograph.

Scanning a page of A4 text into Word took 35 seconds, and a colour page of text and graphics took three seconds more. A colour 4x6in photograph scanned into Paint took 26 seconds. This isn't a bad set of times; it's just a shame the printing isn't up to the quality of the scanner.

Setting up the P6350 is quick and straightforward. And if you don't want to use a PC, fear not: there's a screen and a PictBridge port, so you can work straight from a compatible digicam.

There's one or two nice design touches - the input tray has a plastic flap protecting it from items that fall from the scanner lid, for example. Dell's new Photo All-In-One devices also have this feature, for the simple reason that Lexmark make them.

Our main problem with the P6350 is that it's just too expensive. The running costs - 6.5p per page of black, 8.7p per page in colour - are a little high, too. All this would be fine if print quality was any good, but it isn't.
