The Lexmark T642 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the small or medium office environment. It has a well-rounded feature set and the expandability to meet the needs of a growing office.
Small offices have the same needs as larger offices. They need a printer that can handle various needs and the capacity to keep up with multiple users. The T642 not only fits the needs of a small office, but it has a wide array of expansion upgrades available for the future, allowing it to grow as the small office grows. For home offices, the T642 is a little much, but something like the Lexmark E350, which uses Lexmark E250A21A toner, may be a better choice.
Some of the expansion options include wireless networking, duplexing, and extra paper capacity to name only a few. A small office manager can purchase the T642 with confidence, knowing that it will be able to meet the needs of workers now and in the future.
The T642 is a little on the large side for a laser printer, but its footprint is still small enough to fit in relatively snug spaces. Measuring 16 inches by 17.2 inches by 20.6 inches (HWD) and weighing around 51 pounds, it should be easily movable by two people when necessary. The printer includes a 457 mhz processor and 64 mb of RAM by default, allowing it to handle a large number of print jobs at once. Memory can be expanded up to 576 MB if necessary.
Print speed is around 25 pages per minute. Print quality using the printer toner generally good, but the T642 tends to falter a bit on very small font sizes, losing definition. Models that use Dell 310-7889 toner , like the Dell 5110cn, don't have that problem. However, using the T642 text is sharp and defined. Buyers who need to print large amounts of small font sizes may need to reconsider, but many buyers may find its expansion capabilities more important than the small lack in print quality.
Lexmark T642 toner cartridge have a huge toner capacity of 21,000 pages. This is more than enough toner for a small or medium office. Having such a large capacity in the Lexmark T642 toner cartridges can really help to keep printing costs low. For an affordable color printer, consider a model that uses inexpensive Canon 0455B003AA toner.
Overall, the Lexmark T642 is one of the most expandable printers available on the market. Its print speeds are fast enough for most users, but buyers will have to weigh its many attributes against its problems with print quality.
