Home users who need a basic, affordable color inkjet printer should consider the Lexmark Z611. Its compact frame is perfect for small spaces, and it is both easy to use and reliable. Print speeds are fast for the price, at 14 pages per minute for black and 8 pages per minute for color. Lexmark Z611 ink prices are fairly reasonable, but users with higher-volume printing needs may want to look for a more economical choice.
The color Lexmark Z611 inkjet cartridge includes all three colors in a single cartridge. While this is very convenient and easy to replace, it is not as economical as using individual cartridges, as there is a potential for wasted ink. Lexmark Z611 ink cartridges come in standard and high-yield sizes, and the high-yield versions will give users a lower cost per page. The unit measures 5.3 inches by 15.9 inches by 8.5 inches and weighs 5.4 pounds.
Maximum print resolution is 4800 by 1200 dpi, but only for photo paper. Other paper types have a maximum resolution of 2400 by 1200 dpi. It is worth noting that the higher-quality settings will print slower than the default setting. The printer uses Lexmark's Accu-Feed paper system, which reduces the likelihood of paper jams, even when using thicker media. The unit supports paper thicknesses up to 150 lbs.
PC Magazine reviewed the Lexmark Z611 inkjet, and praised its low price and its very good photo quality. They also liked its graphics quality. They found its print speeds to be much slower than rated, and its text quality to be only fair. They also noted its high ink costs, and the fact that a set of ink cartridges cost more than printer itself.
Overall, the Lexmark Z611 makes a great choice for light printing use, and its affordable price makes it a great second printer for non-essential print jobs, even in a home environment.
