In this post I talked about the ultra-low-cost Lexmark 2500X printer/scanner/copier. It has received some bad press regards ink consumption, but I was willing to give it a try, especially as I bought it to use as a portable scanner and backup copier.
Sorry to report that the ink consumption is not very impressive. Or, perhaps I should say the quantity of ink provided in a cartridge. I get nowhere near the performance from a twenty-dollar ink cartridge for this printer that I get out of a Hewlett-Packard printer.
