The Lexmark Z613 is a great color inkjet for home offices needing less than 2,000 pages every month. A versatile machine all around, the unit supports printing of labels, iron-on transfers, envelopes, transparencies, coated paper, postcard paper, glossy paper, index cards, banners and photo postcard paper, and many different sizes of each are supported. Up to 100 pages can fit in the automatic document feeder. The Z613 can even print out documents with a maximum size of 8.5x17 inches.
With a size of only 15.9x8.5x5.3 inches, this unit will make a small footprint that will fit wonderfully in any household. Able to connect only via USB, it doesn't offer wireless connectivity like a lot of the competition—it does offer Windows and Mac compatibility though. The only problem all around with this personal inkjet printer will probably have to be its speeds. When printing in black-and-white, speeds of only 14 pages per minute can be printed. Plan on printing with color Lexmark Z613 ink? If so, speeds are even slower at only 10 pages per minute. While for some home users these output rates will work out just fine, for others it will really slow down productivity.
For prints, only two Lexmark Z613 ink cartridges will be needed. One is filled with black printer ink, while the other stores cyan, magenta and yellow ink. The black ink tank will last 410 pages, and the color lasts only 275 pages.
The cost per page is a little high using the Lexmark Z613 ink cartridges, so users should consider using remanufactured printer ink from third party vendors. OEM ink is so expensive compared to remanufactured products. The best part is that the page yields and quality produced by the machine are completely the same. Remanufactured Lexmark Z613 ink is the way to go.
