Lexmark IJ300 Printer Review
Designed for personal use, the Lexmark IJ300 is a high-quality inkjet printer that will satisfy the printing needs of any home with standard tasks. Lacking in efficiency and only average in print quality, offices will certainly want to look elsewhere. There are so many printers available for low-volume and high-volume printing; it is hard to pick the right one. Some have fancy features and functions, while some are single-purpose, basic models.
There is a special alert on this unit that tells users when the Lexmark IJ300 ink is low and needs to be replaced. There are only two Lexmark IJ300 ink cartridges to maintain, one with black printer ink and the other with cyan, magenta and yellow. Replacement tanks are available brand new from the original manufacturer; however, they can be found for much less online from third party vendors.
The third party vendors not only have discounted prices on OEM ink, but they provide compatible and remanufacturer versions of the Lexmark IJ300 ink cartridges. These versions are less than half the price, which will save users a lot of money if using this printer to its fullest capacity. After all, the black printer ink tank can only yield 600 pages while the color tank can only produce as many as 275 pages.
An inkjet printing system that works with nozzles and printheads is used in this unit. Small droplets of Lexmark IJ300 ink are heated then pushed through the nozzle and applied to the canvas in layers. Various canvases are compatible with the IJ300, including photo and plain paper, envelopes, cards, labels and transparencies.
When it comes to personal printers, not many features are really required. The most important thing to most consumers is reliability. Most people want a machine they can count on for years, and the Lexmark IJ300 can be fit that mold.
