Lexmark P350

£100 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Lexmark

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

Of the compact photo printers we tested, the Lexmark's styling is the most traditional, with its boxy profile and simple detailing.

Of the compact models we tested, the Lexmark's styling is the most traditional with its boxy profile and simple detailing. It may not be exciting to look at but the P350 is extremely practical, with a small footprint reserving only modest desk space. It isn't overloaded with buttons and most of its options are accessed through the main menu. The menu is a breeze to navigate, with choices logically laid out, although the cartoon-style theme won't be everyone's cup of tea.

It's just as well that the interface is a nice place to dawdle, as you'll be spending quite a bit of time there - particularly if browsing photographs from a media card. Be warned, the Lexmark takes forever to switch between images. This is a shame since its screen is very nice, displaying more detail than the others. It has the option to view slideshows, but you'll be discouraged by the wait between viewings. Similarly, the print process is rather lethargic. Churning out prints takes a yawn-inducing two minutes and eight seconds.

But does the print quality make it worth the wait? Being brutally honest: no, not really. Prints aren't bad - and at first glance everything seems fine - but under closer inspection flaws become apparent. The main causes for concern are the fairly obvious print texture, a lack of finer detail and the clumsy handling of the midtones. Together these faults compromise the overall crispness of photos.

Tonally the Lexmark isn't bad, managing to keep prints fairly accurate and prevent jaundiced flesh tones.

We have cause for concern over the print quality, speed isn't great and the Lexmark P350 is a slightly boring-looking piece of kit. Not exactly a vintage performance.

    Oki C8800n colour laser printer

    With a four figure price tag and A3 as well as A4 output, the Oki C8800n is in a different league to the other models here. At 40kg - which is heavy enough to need two people to carry it - it stretches the definition of a home printer to the limit.

    Epson Aculaser C1100 colour laser printer

    Out of the box the Epson Aculaser C1100 impresses, with solid build quality and styled looks. But the breadbin format gives the Epson Aculaser C1100 a larger than average footprint, and prospective buyers will have to sacrifice more desk space than they might want to.

    Lexmark C780n

    Lexmark's C780n colour laser printer is pricey, but it pays for itself with its fast performance and exemplary print quality.
