Users looking for an inkjet printer that can create high quality resolutions and work in conjunction with Windows or Mac operating systems may want to take a look at the Lexmark Z612. Weighing only 5.4 pounds, it makes the perfect home office unit, because anyone around the house will very easily be able to lift it. It also takes up very little space with its 15.9x8.5x5.3 inch size that will fit on any desktop or end table with ease. While the Z612 does have a lot of positives, there is one negative that might hold people back from buying—speed. When printing in black-and-white, buyers will be able to produce only 14 pages per minute. Color prints take even more time at a very slow speed of only 8 pages per minute. For users who only print occasionally, these speeds will be just fine. However, for those in a fast-paced environment and have heavy-volume print jobs, the slow output rate could hinder progress.
For all prints, buyers will only need two Lexmark Z612 ink cartridges, which are black and tricolor. The tricolor tank consists of cyan, magenta and yellow printer ink. The color inkjet tanks will last 275 pages before needing replaced, and the black Lexmark Z612 ink will last about 410 pages. With below average page yields like these, users will probably need to replace the consumables more often than most would prefer.
When it is time for replacements, consumers should consider purchasing remanufactured Lexmark Z612 ink cartridges from third party vendors. These products cost a lot less than the OEM products but they still create the same high quality resolutions of 4800x1200 dpi for color and 2400x1200 dpi for black-and-white documents. Unfortunately, they have the same weak page yield as well. Overall, remanufactured Lexmark Z612 ink is the best way to go!
