Lexmark Z605 User Reviews
BEST Deal, Great Quality
“The Z705 is available for roughly $25 to $30 more, and as far as I can tell, only features another 2-3 pages printed per minute? So, all that said, the Z605 seemed to be best for us. Until we got it home, and used it to print out our taxes. WOW! The Z605 prints beyond our expectations! The installation was easy, setup was user friendly, and easy, and the quality of print is exceptional! The printer is extremely lightweight, has a fold down top for dust protection, which doubles to back your load of paper durring printing, holds about 70 or 80 sheets at a time, is VERY quiet, and overall, it is EXCELLENT! A REAL DEAL at only $49.95!!” – by M. Tayon
What Was Lexmark Thinking?
“Okay, for fifty or so bucks, this is a good printer. The photo-printing quality is on par with printers costing two to three times as much, but the text printing is a bit lacking. It looks a little edgy and speckled. Little circular bullets look more like little misshapen octagons and such. Also, it’s pretty slow for every-day text printing, and its photo printing is excrutiatingly slow. But, for fifty bucks, what do you expect? Again, for the money, this is a good printer.” – by Larry Rhodes
So good we got another one
“At my workplace, which it’s a small office, we needed an emergency printer so we got this one. For 50 bucks we got more than we bargained for. It is extremely fast and very efficient. One week after we aquired this one another printer broke so It was a no brainer, cheap but extremely good product my boss got another one like this. Should any more printers break this will be the replacement.” – by Forza Catracha
What can I say but “WOW”
“I can say without prejudice that this is the BEST little printer I have ever owned. I started out this century with the much lesser version Z-11 which I paid almost twice as much for. While I still have that printer for the kids’ computer, I would buy another one of the z-605′s in a heartbeat should the z-11 quit on me. I won’t even start to compare the two, but just to say the 605 is WAY better and easier to operate, from installing on the computer to installing the ink cartridges. And speaking of ink cartridges, you can just ignore the inane ramblings of :” ljrhodes ” from 1/29/04. For replacement cartridges, shop the web or go to Staples for their own brand to save money. This printer is SO worth the money.” – by A Customer
Perfect for text
“…I remembered the wonderful little Lexmark that came with my iMac several years ago and how reliable it was, and I wound up buying this printer. It’s wonderful! Fact is, I’m in school and don’t print photos. I hate that Epson, which you can’t run without both black and color inks, even if you just plan to print text. The Lexmark will run with just black ink. It does a wonderful job on text. If your primary need of a printer is text, you can’t go wrong with this wonderful little printer.” – by Debbie
