The Lexmark Z33 is a color inkjet printer designed for the home or small office user. It has a bit more focus on graphics and photo quality than other models in its line, which results in better prints. It can print at speeds up to 9 pages per minute for black and 5 pages per minute for color. The costs for Lexmark Z33 ink are higher than average for its class, but it tends to use less ink than some models.
The machine has a very compact frame, and its input paper tray can even fold down when not in use. Its output paper tray can also slide back into the unit, leaving a very small footprint that could comfortably sit on a desktop. Maximum printing resolution is 2400 dpi, which gives sharper print quality. The Lexmark Z33 inkjet cartridge included with the printer includes the cyan, magenta, and yellow colors. A separate black Lexmark Z33 ink cartridge can be purchased separately, and is recommended, as the composite black produced by the color cartridge is not as dark as a dedicated black cartridge.
The real standout feature of the Lexmark Z33 is its impressive low price. Unlike some models that are very cheap upfront, its ink usage is not so high that it negates the savings. The result is a very affordable printer that will have a reasonably low cost of ownership.
In Amazon.com's professional review of the Lexmark Z33 inkjet, they praised its low price and its one year exchange warranty, as Lexmark will simply replace a faulty printer at any time within the first year. They also felt that it is a good compromise between a low price and print speed and quality. They found its print speed to be somewhat lower than rated, however.
Overall, the Lexmark Z33 is a solid entry-level printer for the home user. While ink costs are a bit higher than competing models, the low upfront price is still very appealing, and print speed and quality are decent for the price.
