The Lexmark Optra S 1855 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the small or medium office environment. Print speeds are fast, at up to 18 pages per minute, and its affordable upfront price puts it in range of smaller budgets. Buyers will save on printer toner as well, as Lexmark 1855 toner is very affordable.
The 1855 has a compact design that makes it a good fit for smaller office spaces. It measures 13.2 inches by 16.7 inches by 19.5 inches, and it weighs only 42.1 pounds, which makes moving it around fairly easy with a little help. The 1200 dpi printing engine produces sharp print quality, but the print speed is reduced to around 8 pages per minute when set to the highest quality setting. The device includes only a parallel port, which could mean purchasing a USB adapter for those with no parallel port on their computer.
The large capacity of Optra S 1855 toner cartridges ensures that toners won't need to be replaced frequently, and the low price of Lexmark 1855 toner cartridges keeps the cost per page very low as well, helping to save money on every page printed. Buyers can opt for compatible Lexmark 1855 toner to reduce costs even lower.
Compared to other models in its class, the 1855 impresses with its 1200 dpi printing engine and provides better print quality than many competing units. Its slow speeds fall behind some other models, but the affordability of Optra S 1855 makes it more economical than the average.
Overall, there is a lot to like about the Lexmark 1855, from its sharp output quality to its economical running costs. It will appeal mainly to buyers with tight spaces who don't want to sacrifice features or affordability. Upgrade options allow it to meet changing needs in the future as well.
