One good thing about this printer is that it’s compact and will easily fit in minimal space. You will love it for its looks and the fact that it is lightweight, only 2.3 Kgs. This printer comes with an easy to install and fast USB interface, and is meant for home user’s basic printing needs as well as for printing good quality photographs.

Xnu i255 can print fine, crisp graphics at resolutions of up to 2400×1200 dpi. The printer uses two cartridges, one black and the other for cyan, magenta and yellow. Its text prints are very clear and readable down, to 2 point size in bold. Coming to speed, it managed to give us 6 ppm for monochrome text as against its rated 12 ppm. It managed to print a text page with a small graphic at 2 ppm in standard and 4 ppm in draft mode. This may seem slow, but the wait is worth, given the quality. Line art and curves printing also came out well in standard mode with this printer. Lastly, it took 4 mins to print a full-page color graphic on photo paper in best quality mode, and again the wait was worth it.

Overall, the printer gives good performance and at a price tag of Rs 3,995, it’s a great buy. The cost per print is Rs 1.50 for monochrome text. You’ll have to look around for a USB cable as the printer doesn’t come with one.
