Review on Lexmark™ Z1300 Printer
Lexmark Z1300 inkjet printer is quite inexpensive. It pruduces 20 pages per minute in black and white and 16 pages per minute in color using the high definition 1,200 x 4,800 dpi resolution for brilliant, professional images. It creates vivid, borderless prints of up to 5 x 7 inch. The input paper capacity of Lexmark Z1300 Printer is 100 sheets.
The Lexmark Z1300 Printer is not for everyone, but for those users who want to spend the bare minimum for their occasional prints. Though the Lexmark Z1300 Printer has no control panel, you would find plenty of help in Lexmark's bundled software. It has an attractively designed driver and a centralized interface for documentation, troubleshooting, and how-to information.
The maximum print speed of Lexmark Z1300 printer in black is up to 22 pages per minute and maximum print speed in color is 16 pages per minute. It is minimally equipped and pretty slow and its inks are among the most expensive available. Because its photo quality on special paper is very good, it could be a reasonable way to print photos. The Lexmark Z1300 printer is as simple as its plain, white shell indicates. The input tray of Lexmark Z1300 printer unfolds from the top, its output tray slides out from the bottom, and its included tricolor cartridge lodges into a bay underneath its front panel. It also has a bay for a black-ink cartridge, but that ink would cost you extra. Lexmark's Imaging Studio software lets you view and edit photos.
- FIVE – Six-color printer
One point in the Lexmark Z1300 printer’s favor is that it has the potential to be a six-color printer. Instead of popping a black ink cartridge into the second slot, you could choose for a photo tricolor cartridge instead, and end up with one of the cheapest six-color printers available. If your budget is tight and your output needs are infrequent, the Lexmark Z1300 might not be a bad tradeoff.
- FOUR – Design
The Lexmark Z1300 printer has a simple design and it reflects its basic functionality. The glossy white body has a height of up to 4.8 inches. The width of this printer is 16.9 inches and depth is 8.4 inches. The weight is a feather light 5 pounds. The paper handling system is characteristic of a basic inkjet printer. A translucent gray shield that deflects small objects such as pens and paper clips is at the front of the input area.
- THREE – Two-tank system
The Lexmark Z1300 printer employs a two-tank system, which is standard for low cost inkjet printers. One is black cartridge and another one is tricolor (CMY) cartridge. For six-color photo printing, you could swap out the black tank for a tricolor photo tank. Lexmark offers three tiers of ink tank pricing: return program (using regular-capacity cartridges), regular capacity, and high capacity.
- TWO – Inexpensive printer
The Lexmark Z1300 is a very inexpensive printer. The money you save on the Lexmark Z1300 would eventually go to Lexmark anyway. A full-page photo would use a lot more ink, of course, and the special paper this printer wants for the best output would cost you dearly. In fact, if you consider the cost of a replacement tricolor ink cartridge, the Lexmark Z1300 printer is either free or very nearly free.
- ONE – Output quality
The overall output quality of the Lexmark Z1300 printer is good. The grayscale and color images do better and the color photos score surprisingly well. It creates vivid, borderless prints of up to 5 x 7 inches. The input paper capacity of Lexmark Z1300 Printer is 100 sheets. It delivers 20 pages per minute in black and white and 16 pages per minute in color using the high definition 1,200 x 4,800 dpi resolution for brilliant, professional images.
The Lexmark Z1300 printer is not for everyone, but for those users who want to spend the bare minimum for their occasional prints. The only other feature on the body of the Lexmark Z1300 is the 'Power' button.
