The Lexmark Z35 is a color inkjet printer designed for the home user who does low-volume printing. Its very affordable price and compact size will appeal to users with a small budget and small spaces. Print speeds are a bit slow, at up to 11 pages per minute for black and 6 pages per minute for color. Lexmark Z35 ink costs are fairly high, resulting in a higher cost of ownership than competing models.
The maximum printing resolution is 2400 dpi, which gives very good results, but print speed is significantly slower when using the high quality setting. In fact, even printing graphics prints can slow speeds down to less than 1 page per minute, so users shouldn't expect a lot of speed. The single color Lexmark Z35 inkjet cartridge contains all three of cyan, magenta, and yellow ink in one cartridge, so replacing an individual color is impossible. This makes the cost per page for Lexmark Z35 ink cartridges much higher, due to wasted ink.
The printer supports a wide range of operating systems, including all modern version of Windows, Mac OS 8.6 or later, and even supports many distributions of Linux. Multiple media types are supported, such as labels, transparencies, envelopes, photo paper, and banners. It can print on paper up to legal size. Its 100-sheet paper capacity is a good fit for the machine's size and intended user base, but high-volume users will probably want more capacity.
In their review of the Lexmark Z35, PCWorld praised its extremely low price and its decent printing speeds for text. They also liked its short and sweet manual for helping with setup. They criticized its slow graphics speed and its high ink costs, noting that users who print frequently will use up the cost savings on ink.
Overall, the Lexmark Z35 makes a good choice for a home user who wants a very inexpensive printer for only occasional printing. Other users might want to spend a bit more for a printer with faster speeds and less expensive ink.
