The Lexmark Z25 is a color inkjet printer designed for the home user with low-volume printing needs. Its compact frame and low price are impressive, but its printing speeds are a bit slow, at up to 9 pages per minute for black and 6 pages per minute for color. The high cost of Lexmark Z25 ink will make it a poor choice for users who do even a medium volume of printing, however.
The single Lexmark Z25 inkjet cartridge contains all colors in a single unit. This makes the ink more expensive on a cost per page basis, as it results in wasted ink, since colors can not be replaced individually when they run dry. The Lexmark Z25 ink cartridges also have smaller capacities than average, also contributing to a higher cost per page. The printer can handle a variety of media types, including envelopes, labels, coated paper, and others. It supports paper sizes up to legal.
Most of the features of the Lexmark Z25 are controlled by software, as the only buttons on the front panel are a power button and a paper feed button. The software is very detailed, and provides a number of options for printing, as well as alerting the user to the amount of ink remaining. One nice design feature is the fact that the paper input tray can fold down over the printer when it is not in use, saving on vertical space.
In their review of the Lexmark Z25 inkjet, Amazon.com found it to be a very affordable printer, but thought that its high ink costs outweighed its low upfront price. They also found that using only the included color cartridge resulted in black prints that looked very brown, requiring the purchase of a separate black cartridge to get good results.
Overall, the Lexmark Z25 has an affordable price going for it, but its ink costs are so high that they negatively balance out its upfront price.
