A Quick Peek At The All-In-One Lexmark X560N Printer

by erin on June 6, 2011

Installing an all-in-one machine that’s capable of printing, scanning, copying and faxing in a workplace got some benefits to it. Money is saved since you need to pay for a single machine instead of different pieces. Further, it also helps save precious space. One of these all-in-one machines is the Lexmark X560N printer, ideal for sharing within a midsize workgroup.

Laser Printer

Functioning as a laser printer, it’s fast enough to churn out as much as 31 monochrome and up to 20 color pages per minute. The resolution used is 600 x 600 dots per inch, good enough for producing crisp and readable text, and well-detailed graphics. With the image enhancement technology called 2400 IQ around, documents end up with professional quality.

Handling Capacity

Media handling capacity is up to 400 sheets, although there’s room for expansion. By installing additional media trays (sold separately), up to 950 sheets may be handled by the machine. Media types supported range from regular paper, glossy, labels, transparencies, card to envelopes. Media sizes supported are statement, universal, letter, legal, executive and custom ones – up to 8.5″ x 14″ in size.

Enhanced Formation

Toners now come with enhanced formulation as well as pantone calibration for superb color reproduction. The manufacturer recommends the use of genuine black, yellow, magenta and cyan Lexmark toners. Such helps keep cost per page low while maintaining superb output quality. Since the toners are front-loading, just like other consumables, replacement is a cinch.


Again, an all-in-one machine allows you to save money and space because you only need a single tool instead of four different ones. It’s also possible to save paper by installing an optional duplex unit. This allows you to use the backside of the paper, too, without the need to manually flip it over. If you save on paper supplies, you also help save the planet.

Optical Resolution

Being a scanner, it uses a 600 x 600 dots per inch optical resolution. Media size measuring as much as 8.5″ x 14″ may be scanned by the machine. As a copier, it’s able to churn out reproductions at a speed just like the printer part – 31 monochrome and 20 color pages per minute. You may reduce the document up to 25 percent, and enlarge it to a maximum of 400 percent. With the 50-sheet document feeder available, your scanning and copying tasks can be quick and easy. Working as a fax, it’s a super 3G class. The data transmission speed it has is 33.6 Kbps.

Installed Memory

While it’s shipped with an installed 384MB memory, it may be upgraded to as large as 1408MB. There’s a 400MHz processor within it, responsible for its speedy performance. PostScript 3 and PCL 6 are the printer languages included, making the unit compatible with any IT environment, particularly a midsize workgroup. There are multiple connectivity interfaces around, and they are parallel, USB 2.0 and Ethernet 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX.


Because it weighs 88.2 lbs., the Lexmark X560N printer needs to have its own spot in the workplace instead of moving it around. Its body has a dimension of 28.7″ (height) x 18.1″ (width) x 20.67″ (depth). Using this all-in-one machine is made simple by the well-laid-out buttons and the 4-line LCD, also guiding you through maintenance processes and toner usage.
