The Lexmark Z32 is a solid color inkjet printer designed for the home or small office user. It has decent print speeds, at up to 7.5 pages per minute for black and 3.5 pages per minute for color printer ink. It handles a wide variety of media and has decent print quality. Lexmark Z32 ink costs are somewhat high.
The Lexmark Z32 is compact, measuring only 17.6 inches by 8.3 inches by 6.7 inches. It is also very lightweight, at just 5.3 pounds. It includes only a black Lexmark Z32 ink cartridge, so those wishing to print in color will need to purchase a separate color Lexmark Z32 ink cartridge. This adds more costs to the low price, reducing its value somewhat, especially compared to models that include both cartridges in the box.
It features Lexmark's Accu-Feed technology, which it claims will virtually eliminate paper jams. Given that paper jams are often more common in inkjet printers than in laser printers, this could be a real benefit. The printer can connect via either USB or parallel port, but no cables are included, so it is just one more added expense. It supports Windows and Mac platforms. While the Lexmark Z32 is a solid printer that can handle a fairly heavy workload for its class, it does not compete particularly well on print speed or print quality compared to competing models, or even newer models from Lexmark, for that matter.
User reviews of the Lexmark Z32 inkjet unit are a mixture of positive and negative. Many like its low price and small footprint. Some mention problems with paper jams and head alignment issues. A few mention major problems that required a replacement unit.
Overall, the Lexmark Z32 is decent, but newer, faster models are available with more features at a similar or slightly higher price. High printer ink costs also decrease its value.
