The Lexmark Optra S 1250 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office. It features solid printing speeds of up to 12 pages per minute, and has upgrade options to grow along with an expanding office. The 1250N model also includes built-in networking. Its low upfront price is impressive, as is the economical cost of printer toner, as Lexmark 1250 toner is very affordable as well.
While the 12 pages per minute printing speed of the 1250 is important, it also has a fast first page out time of 15 seconds, which means print jobs will begin printing quickly. This can be even more important for the home or small office, where users often print smaller documents less frequently, requiring more warm-up time. Print quality is sharp, and the device gives the user the option of printing at 300, 600, or 1200 dpi, to balance speed and quality, as well as use less Optra S 1250 toner when desired.
Speaking of toners, Lexmark 1250 toner cartridges are relatively affordable, keeping costs down. The Optra S 1250 toner cartridges have a large capacity of 17,600 pages. This ensures that Lexmark 1250 toner has a lower cost per page than competing models with smaller cartridges.
Compared to other models in its class, the 12 pages per minute speed is somewhat slower than some devices at a similar price point. Running costs are also generally higher, which can make it more expensive to maintain. The 1250 can be expanded with additional paper trays for more capacity, however, while many competing models cannot.
Overall, the Lexmark 1250 has a solid blend of speed and print quality and an affordable price. It should fit in well in a small office, especially one that anticipates growing, as its capacity can be expanded to keep up with additional users.
