LEXMARK 2470 DRIVER

There’s also a massive increase in running costs, as mono pages cost just as much as colour ones at around 8p per page, which is about four times as expensive as many inkjet printers. The so-called ‘No 1’ ink cartridge contains just cyan, magenta and yellow inks, which provide a less than average colour space for full colour or photo printing. Combine this with the Lexmark’s under-achievement in speed, quality and running costs, and it looks a poor buy in every department. This makes mono output very slow, at around 5ppm in normal quality mode, and also means that black text looks very grey and grainy compared with the solid output of most inkjet printers and all-in-ones. Performance for black text is even worse, as the ‘process black’ has to be created by using all three ink colours. What these people save in ink costs they usually spend in petrol, always popping out to buy one cartridge or another. Against 5ppm ‘normal quality’ mono print speed Ink price.

As such, the X works pretty well as a very basic colour A4 photocopier, with on-board, one-touch copy facilities even when your PC is switched off. Spare a thought for owners of high-end photo inkjet printers such as the Canon i, which uses eight different individual ink tanks.

Rising above the print quality, the Lexmark has a flatbed CIS scanner built into its lid, which is pretty fast and requires no warm-up time, because like most inkjet all-in-ones, it’s based on an LED light source rather than conventional CCF Cold Cathode Fluorescent lamps.
