With its full-color LCD screen, memory card slots, and other useful features, the Lexmark P915 is designed with photo printing in mind. Its compact size and low price will appeal to users on a budget. Lexmark P915 ink costs are the only concern, especially for heavy-duty printing. Print speeds are good, at up to 15 pages per minute for color and 22 pages per minute for black, but photo prints will be much slower and but the quality ink will produce more precise color tones than HP 97 ink.
The packaging of Lexmark P915 inkjet cartridges is somewhat misleading. The machine comes with a single color cartridge that is capable of printing composite black, but users who need to print true black will have to purchase an additional black Lexmark P915 ink cartridge. This adds a significant amount to the cost of the printer, and makes units with better ink options, such as HP 20 ink, more appealing. High-yield cartridges are available, which lower the cost per page, but ink costs overall are fairly expensive compared to competing models.
The Lexmark P915 has a number of features aimed at photo printing. It includes a number of memory card slots for inserting digital camera cards for direct printing. The full-color LCD screen makes it easy to preview, edit, and print photos directly from the front panel. The memory card slots can also be used to transfer photos from the card to a PC. There is also a USB port that supports thumb drives or PictBridge-enable cameras.
User reviews of the Lexmark P915 are mixed. Some users praise its low price and excellent photo quality. Users also like the convenience of its memory card slots for quick printing. Some users criticize its slow printing speeds for photos and high-quality text. Users also mention problems with reliability, including machines that stopped working. The low capacity of the ink also doesn't compare to the competition, such as Canon PG-40 ink.
Overall, the Lexmark P915 is a good choice for the home or small office user who needs its photo-centric features. For a little more money, competing models offer faster speeds and lower ink prices, however.
