For a basic, affordable and compact inkjet printer, the Lexmark Z730 really stands out from the crowd. With a rock-bottom price and all the features most buyers will need, it seems like a steal. Lexmark Z730 ink costs are a bit high, however, especially with the small capacity of its printer ink cartridge.
The main benefit of the Lexmark Z730 is certainly its low price. It is easily one of the most affordable inkjet printers in its class. It is also fairly compact, measuring 10.3 inches by 14.8 inches by 17.7 inches and it weighing only 6.29 pounds. Its small frame and light weight make it a good choice for the home office or a college dorm room, where space is tight. It supports a wide variety of media types, such as envelopes, labels, iron-on transfers, card stock and others. It can even handle borderless printing on the most common photo sizes. You won't get the bells and whistles of more expensive models, but for a basic printer, it does its job well.
The real problem lies in the small capacity of Lexmark Z730 ink cartridges. Since the single Lexmark Z730 ink cartridge has a capacity of only 190 pages, it will need to be replaced often. This gives it a high cost per page, even though printer ink is not particularly expensive. It also uses a single color cartridge, even for black, which can be a waste of ink.
User reviews praise the machine's ease of use and reliability. Some praise the simplicity of having only a single cartridge to replace, but other criticize the added cost of not having a dedicated black cartridge, as well as the overall expense of ink.
Overall, the Lexmark Z730 offers a lot of functionality for its low price, but this is somewhat offset by the high cost of Lexmark Z730 ink.
