The Lexmark IJ600 is a color printer designed for light-duty use in a home or small office environment. Its print speeds are somewhat slow, at around 2.5 pages per minute for text, and .3 pages per minute for color and graphics. Lexmark IJ600 ink costs are also high, making it an expensive printing solution.
Even though it is designed for the limited spacing of homes and small offices, the Lexmark IJ600 tends to be a bit bulkier than competing models, taking up a larger footprint and making it a little more difficult to fit on a desk than most. Lexmark IJ600 ink cartridges are quite expensive, upping its running costs considerably. Using third-party compatible or remanufactured Lexmark IJ600 ink cartridges may help, but it is still very expensive compared to the competition.
Print quality is generally very good. Text is very sharp and detailed, with solid color and graphics printing, especially for the price. Maximum printing resolution is only 1200 by 1200 dpi, however, and many competing models offer better graphics for a similar or slightly higher price. The included software is useful. It shows the user the status of the printer, including ink levels, and it has basic photo editing ability and some creative photo projects included.
In the review of the Lexmark IJ600 inkjet unit, PC World liked its print quality, especially for its low price. PC World especially found its text readability impressive. They disliked its graphic printing, finding it inconsistent. They also found its printer ink costs to be some of the highest on the market at the time of review.
Overall, the Lexmark IJ600 is a solid color inkjet printer, but it has little to differentiate it from the crowd. Its mediocre print quality and slow speeds make it difficult to recommend, and its very high printer ink costs make it much more expensive to own than competing models.
