Could somebody tell me how good the quality of prints this copier I have will do?

So I have a Lexmark XS736de print/copy/fax machine. This isn't some run of the mill Best Buy deal, but a professional $3000 copy machine. I was wandering how well it would do with making prints. Does anybody have any experience with these? The specs are below at the link if you want to check them out.

I doubt a $3k copier would stand up to a $3k inkjet when it comes to photo printing if you want to compare apples to apples.

Why not try making test prints and see what type of results you get?

It might be ok for casual stuff you'll throw away soon, but not for photographic prints for customers or anything you'd want to keep. A $100 inkjet would probably do a better job.

Just use a lab.

This.
In the long run it's way cheaper.

In-house printing is so 2010. Just use a lab.
