The Lexmark Z845 is a color inkjet printer designed for the home or small office user. It has a fairly compact frame and decent printing speeds, at up to 24 pages per minute for black and 18 pages per minute for color. Lexmark Z845 ink is expensive, however, unlike other kinds of ink, such as HP 94 ink.
The Lexmark Z845 is not the most compact unit in its class. In fact, it seems large considering it does not have any multifunction features to offer. It measures 5.3 inches by 18 inches by 8.5 inches, so it has a larger footprint than some on the market. The high price of Lexmark Z845 ink cartridges is the main deterrent. They also have a low page yield, which will hinder high-volume printing demands. In this case, units with Xerox 108R00749 ink will be better suited. The Z845 requires the purchase of extra Lexmark Z845 ink cartridges in order to get the best print quality, which is something that is not made clear to potential buyers.
Borderless printing is supported for most popular photo sizes, making it easy to make your own personal photography lab. Producing photos at the highest quality will require the separate photo cartridge, however. The included software is very intuitive and lets users do quick photo editing, with 1-touch red-eye reduction and 1-touch color correction options. Users can also create a variety of impressive projects such as greeting cards and photo albums within the software.
CNET's review of the Lexmark Z845 is mixed. They praised its low price and solid speeds. They also found its software to be helpful and setup to be quite easy. They disliked its subpar print quality and found it to be large for a basic inkjet unit.
Overall, users who need a very inexpensive and basic color printer will find that the Lexmark Z845 fits the bill. Though replacements printer ink may be pricey, it produces decent quality, though is outshined by other models' ink, such as Dell M4646 ink.
