Home users looking for a multifunction printer that offers a large number of features may like to consider the Pro715 from ink supplies maker Lexmark.

The manufacturer notes the machine offers a range of options that can save time, such as the ability to scan document directly to a network, email or PDF format.

It also includes automatic duplexing that can save users money on paper costs and the ability to print directly from mobile devices through its Wi-Fi connection.

Examining the Pro715 for Trusted Reviews, Simon Williams noted it has a good range of connections, such as USB and PictBridge connectivity, in addition to the wireless features, that can allow individuals to print photos without the need to connect to a PC.

He also observed text and colour graphic quality is good, while the economical extra-large black ink cartridges offer decent value for money.

Recently, a survey by PC Advisor found 60 per cent of home printing activities are for leisure purposes, while a third said they used their machine primarily for business documents.
