The Lexmark Z22 is an extremely compact and affordable color inkjet unit with print speeds of up to 6.5 pages per minute for black printer ink and 3.5 pages per minute for color printer ink. It would make a good choice for users who want not only compact size but portability. Lexmark Z22 ink costs are a little high, however.
The machine measures only 8.3 inches by 17.6 inches by 6.7 inches. Its lightweight design allows it to be somewhat portable for users with laptops or notebooks, or college students who wish to move it from the dorm room to home. The paper input and output trays fold into the unit for a more compact design when not in use. The real downside is the high cost of Lexmark Z22 ink cartridges. Even when using the high-yield Lexmark Z22 ink cartridges, the cost per page is higher than many competing models, making it expensive to own, especially for those who do a lot of printing.
Along with its compact frame, it also has a small price tag, which will appeal to bargain hunters. One might expect a lot of sacrifices for a printer so small, but very few are noticeable. It has a maximum printing resolution of 1200 by 1200 dpi. It supports both Windows and Mac platforms, so those with Macs are not left out in the cold. Setting it up is quick and easy with the included software disc, which handles nearly the entire process.
Consumer reviews of the Lexmark Z22 inkjet unit are mixed. Many like its low price and its small design. Some dislike its lackluster print quality and slow speeds. Some have gotten many years of reliable printing from the machine.
Overall, the Lexmark Z22 is an excellent choice for users with tight spaces, or even those who need to occasionally take it with them. Some print quality and speed are sacrificed for its small size and low price, however.
