Default Which is better?

I'm about to order a new printer and would like to know your opinions on these two I narrowed down to.

Lexmark X1270:

Lexmark X3350:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16828106210

...Here is the comparison between the two:

Is it worth the extra $8 for the X3350 over X1270?

If you are into photo's you will notice a nice difference with the X3350,It has an optional 6 color ink catridge for doing photo's,Other than that there's not really too much difference between the 2,If you can afford it look at the P4350 i have 1 and am totally pleased with it

I would go for the Lexmark Z3350. Solid reviews, good product, and Lexmark makes pretty good value products.

@BMXFreakRider = HP printer's are cheap, and they're cheap. I got a free one, and it performs OK, but sucks up ink badly.

OfficeJet? Is that a laser printer?

HP is known for their laser printers. They work excellent and the toners will last months with non-stop printing. Lexmark makes OK printers, but they suck ink, and they're Japenese, so support is terrible.
