Shoppers looking for a bargain on a basic color inkjet printer will like the low price of the Lexmark Z1310. It gives all the basic functionality a buyer would want from a color and photo printer at one of the lowest prices available. Its compact size makes it very suitable for small spaces, and print speeds are quite good, at up to 20 pages per minute for black and 14 pages per minute for color.
One point of confusion with the Lexmark Z1310 ink could be its array of options. Included in the box are color Lexmark Z1310 ink cartridges, which are capable of printing composite black but are not the most economical option. For true black, buyers will need to add the black Z1310 Lexmark ink cartridges for an additional cost. For the best photo quality, there is also a separate photo ink cartridge. With so many potential purchases to make, the low upfront cost of the machine starts to lose some value.
The included software aims to be very intuitive for the user. The setup process is very easy, walking the user through the necessary steps to connect the printer. Do note, however, that a USB cable is not included in the box, so users who don't have an extra cable lying around will have to make yet another extra purchase. The software also helps users create a number of projects, such as scrapbooks and photo albums that are easy to create and print. There is also a detailed readout of ink levels.
Compared to other models in its class, the Lexmark Z1310 inkjet is much less expensive than its competition. Whether this low price is worth the higher cost in ink depends on how much printing the user will do.
Overall, the Lexmark Z1310 ink printer is an impressive machine for the price, but potential buyers should research ink costs and calculate their printing needs to see if a machine with lower ink costs would actually save them money in the long run.
