The Lexmark Z816 is the ideal solution for those seeking a reasonably priced printer with dependable printing capabilities. The personal printer is an excellent option for a home office environment with ink jet color options. The device has the capability to print 22 pages per minute in black and white with a slightly lower output for color prints at 15 pages per minute. A direct USB link to your computer will be required since the printer does not have any wireless capabilities. Installing the printer on a personal computer is a simple process with the right operating systems. The computers will have to run on either the Microsoft Windows or Apple MacOS platforms.
Other print options available include banners, glossy paper labels, transparencies, index cards and coated paper. The tray is able to hold up to 100 pages to maximize the efficiency of each print. The text for each print is legible for both mono and color prints. Customers can expect the printer to produce high quality graphics with smooth gradients and solid fills.
The Lexmark Z816 also has up to 4800 x 120 dpi for photo prints with a 6 color printing option. However, the print quality might suffer if the standard print cartridge is used on photo prints. The photos may lack dimension due to the print quality. Users will have to purchase a separate photo cartridge to improve the quality of the photo prints. With a photo cartridge installed the print quality will improve significantly.
The Lexmark Z816 is a dependable printer for a dorm or small home office environment. With the low cost of the device and the efficiency of the prints there are several benefits to using the device. The replacement cartridges are also inexpensive and provide users with a fast print option for their personal documents.
