Lexmark Impact S305 Reviews

PCPRO reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“It’s also quick, producing mono text that’s only slightly thin and feathered at 9.4ppm, with colour at 4.5ppm. Better still is that best-quality 6 x 4in photos take just 30 seconds, with A4 prints just over a minute. That the quality remains high is remarkable. Scans and copies slow things down a little and scanned images aren’t totally sharp and colour-accurate, but it’s a solid all-rounder.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCAdvisor reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“Photos exhibited a slight greenish tint and high contrast that provided great detail in darker areas but made fleshtones look unnatural. Colour copies had a slightly brighter colour palette than the originals, and we noted moiré patterns in large areas of solid colour.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Gadgetspeak reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“While Quick Print did not produce a quality suitable for business correspondence, it would suffice for many other tasks. Checking out Normal and Best modes produced colour documents rolled out at 11ppm and 5.5ppm respectively. Both modes produced documents suitable for business needs and Best mode delivered laser quality print and excellent colour images.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Trustedreviews reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“The Impact S305 is a surprisingly capable all-in-one for under £100. It uses the same core print technology as Lexmark machines costing three times the price and the new Vizix print engine shows its paces just as well in this cheaper model, producing better than average plain paper print and much better photo print than before. With a good set of data ports and wireless connection as standard, this machine stands its ground against its main rivals.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Techradar reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“If you have room for a larger printer in your home, the Lexmark Impact S305 is a surprisingly good all-round machine. We don’t like its rather fussy design, but we were more than happy with its print speeds and, more importantly, the quality of images it delivered.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Cnet reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“..In fact, the S305 bested the competition in text speed, colour graphics speed, single-sheet photo speed and presentation speed. If all you’re looking for is an inexpensive and superfast printer, the Impact S305 deserves your undivided attention.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Computershopper reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“The copy’s colors were much more muted than the original’s. Copies of our text and text-and-graphics documents, however, fared much better. In most regards, it was difficult to tell the difference between the copies and their originals, though colored text was a bit more washed out.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Reviews.cnet reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“We maintain a similar opinion about the S305’s print quality. The black text prints aren’t lacking at all–in fact, they are close to laser quality, which we’ve come to expect from Lexmark. Lines appear rich, with a slight hint of wicking that produces a slightly blurred image, but such imperfections are acceptable with inkjet printers, especially ones at this price.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Digitalversus reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“Overall, the quality of printed documents is very good. The results are accurate, with clear, sharp characters, but we have two tips. First of all, make sure you don’t grab office documents straight away, especially if you have clammy palms… Secondly, for photo mode, it’s best to specify exactly what paper stock you’re using…”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Techreviewsource reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“We found that print speeds are extremely fast across the board, with graphics, colors, and black and white. The black text quality of the Impact S305 is extremely good and color photo quality was also very good with little color misrepresentation or similar flaws. Scan quality was also very good, but more so with text scans. Scanning was also relatively quick, but it depends on what scan quality you choose for that particular scan.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCWorld reviews the Lexmark Impact S305 and writes;
“The Impact S305 performed satisfactorily in our tests. Plain-black text printed at a midrange rate of 6.2 pages per minute on the PC, but a lackluster 4.1 ppm on the Mac. On either platform, text output looked crisp and very black.”
Rating: ★★★½☆
