Lexmark Z816 Reviews

CNET reviews the Lexmark Z816 and writes;
“The photo cartridge greatly improves the color quality of snapshots, especially high-resolution images printed on photo paper. The Z816 is capable of printing color photos at up to 4,800×1,200dpi, but keep in mind that higher resolution does not automatically translate into better quality.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

PCWorld reviews the Lexmark Z816 and writes;
“Color graphics had a somewhat muted, foggy look, but with reasonably attractive detail and lighting. (When we used better-quality inkjet paper, color quality improved a lot, but text quality didn’t change much.) Glossy gray-scale photos displayed some graininess and a slightly soft focus. Color glossies were the Z816’s strong suit, with fine detail, smooth shading, and vibrant colors.”

User Opinions

Lexmark Z816 User Reviews

Excellent basic photo printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“The speed of both typical documents and photos is very impressive, and the automatic paper type sensing is a cool feature. This printer is quite basic, but that makes it an excellent value if you’re like me and would always use your computer to print photos even if you had a printer that could do it alone (old one did–never used that feature). Can’t beat it for the price. “ – by M. Jarvis

Great Printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“This printer was one of the best “basic” printers I have ever owned. It is very speedy and has great quality, it is a snap to install and tells you how much ink is left and all of the things you need to know before it is to late. This printer is great if you need to print anything, but of course for the price, it does not have a scanner or anything but is a great photo printer.” – by Mike

Superior Low Cost Printer for High Speed Black Printing and Color Photos, | Rating: ★★★★★
“If you are looking for a reasonably priced, fast printer for both good black text and photo capabilities, look no further. The photos that I have printed (and those I have done sparingly since I normally use snapfish for ordering photos) have been excellent on photo paper.” – by A. Downes
