Need a personal inkjet photo printer for the home office? The Lexmark Z617 may be a great option to look into. With a size of only 15.9x8.5x5.3 inches, it will fit on any desktop. One downside to this lightweight machine will be the fact that users will always need to be plugged in to operate it, because USB connection is the only type offered. For the home user that doesn't need wireless capabilities, though, the Z617 will definitely suffice. It can also produce up to 2,000 pages every month, which will be more than enough for most home users.
When it comes to downsides to this particular unit, there is really only one big one—speed. When printing in black-and-white the fastest speed possible is 14 pages per minute. For prints using color Lexmark Z617 ink, the fastest speed possible is 10 pages for minute. For home users who are constantly printing a lot of documents, this may become an issue. However, most home users who only print a few pages at a time won't even be fazed by this. Resolutions of 4800x1200 dpi are possible when printing in color though, which may make the results worth the wait too. Resolutions using only black Lexmark Z617 ink are even very high at 2400x1200 dpi.
There are only two Lexmark Z617 ink cartridges needed for printing. They are filled with black printer ink and tricolor ink. The tricolor ink consists of cyan, yellow and magenta and it can create a variety of different colors. The inkjet tanks will last 275 pages for color and 410 pages for black. For most this means that buyers won't need to replace ink too often. When it is time to replace printer ink, users should only replace with remanufactured Lexmark Z617 ink cartridges from third party vendors.
