It's hard to argue with the low price of the Lexmark Z1320 for a basic color inkjet printer. Its compact size makes it a great choice for small spaces as well, and its print speeds are quite good, at up to 22 pages per minute for black and 16 pages per minute for color. Lexmark Z1320 ink is a bit more expensive than other products, such as HP 21 ink.
The machines measures only 4.8 inches by 16.9 inches by 8 inches, and weighs 5.1 pounds. This makes it a very light and portable machine for a college student or anyone else needing to occasionally transport it around. Despite its low upfront cost, however, ink costs are a concern. The color Lexmark Z1320 ink cartridges included with the machine do not include true black, so additional black Lexmark Z1320 ink cartridges will be necessary for quality black text. A separate photo cartridge is also needed for the best photo quality. Juggling the photo and color cartridges could potentially be a real hassle for users who print a lot of photos.
The Lexmark Z1320's main draws are certainly its low price and its compact size. Print quality is quite good, and even photo quality is very good, though as mentioned, it requires a separate photo cartridge for maximum quality. Lack of a control panel on the printer might be an issue for some buyers, but for the most part, it is unnecessary, as the software and driver included with the printer provide easy access to all the necessary features.
In their professional review of the Lexmark Z1320 inkjet, Expert Reviews gave it a rating of 4 out of 5 stars, and gave it a recommendation as a "budget buy". The site praised its low cost and compact size and liked its photo quality better than competitors.
Overall, the Lexmark Z1320 ink printer offers little more than the basics, but its affordable price and compact size make it a great choice for small spaces and buyers on a budget.
