Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to print photos but weren't anywhere near a computer? The Lexmark P122 is an inkjet printer that might be the solution for these situations. Its operation is generally limited to photo printing, but it will be a blessing to those buyers who find that it fills a niche that is not currently being satisfied. The main disadvantages are in the cost and limitations of Lexmark P122 ink, and in the lack of black printer ink.
The P122 has small dimensions that make it relatively portable, which might just be necessary in some situations. It measures 7 inches, 16.2 inches by 9.6 inches, with a weight of only 4 pounds. One could imagine taking it along to a family reunion to make extra copies of photos for each family member, for example. It could be useful in a number of different scenarios such as this, and having such a portable inkjet is something many buyers may be looking for.
How does it manage to operate without a computer, you ask? It includes a number of memory card slots, so users can take the memory card out of a digital camera and insert it directly into the machine. From there, the control panel and full-color LCD screen make the different printing options easily available.
The disadvantage of the design lies mainly with the printer ink. Instead of multiple Lexmark P122 ink cartridges, the system uses only one color tank. This means that the color Lexmark P122 ink cartridges are also responsible for printing composite black, a combination of the three included colors. This doesn't greatly affect the quality of the output, but it means users will be spending a lot more on Lexmark P122 ink over time.
For those buyers who are excited about the portability or PC-free operation of the Lexmark P122, it should be a very useful device. With its limitations and restrictions, in addition to higher running costs, it won't suit the average user quite as well, however.
