Quality is a top priority when choosing a new printer. A printer's resolution is measured in dpi (dots per inch). The higher the dpi, the cleaner and more professional printed documents appear. Lexmark printers offer a range of options from 600 x 600 to 4800 x 1200 dpi for high-quality printing. Speed is another important factor. A printer's speed is determined by its output, or ppm (pages per minute). A typical machine averages 30 ppm, while premium models can exceed 50 ppm. A printer's duty cycle determines the maximum number of pages the device can handle per month. Offices that do a lot of printing will require a high duty cycle that can handle at least 20,000 pages.
The most popular Lexmark models are laser printers. Laser printers offer fast printing speeds and deliver consistent, high-quality results. Laser ink cartridges are cost effective, as they have a long lifespan and are more productive than inkjet cartridges. Both small home offices and large businesses will find that a laser printer meets their needs.
Special Features Add Versatility
A Lexmark printer's extra features can improve productivity. An ADF (automatic document feeder) allows workers to set a stack of papers in the feed tray to be printed so they can get on with their other tasks. Two-sided printing can produce manuals, brochures and manuscripts while reducing paper waste. Nothing provides more versatility than an all-in-one model, which can print, scan and copy, and many also include a built-in fax machine.
Wireless capability is a popular feature in the modern office. Multiple users can connect to a single Wi-Fi printer, improving productivity. All wireless models allow connection via a central network. Some models also allow a user to print documents remotely from a smartphone or through the Internet. Included card readers and USB ports offer even more versatility, allowing users to plug information directly into the machine. Wireless devices reduce costs and help maintain a streamlined space by eliminating the need for printers at every desk.
Choosing between Monochromatic and Color Lexmark Printers
Monochromatic printers print only in black and white. Although this may seem limiting, there are several reasons to consider a monochromatic Lexmark printer. Black-and-white machines typically have both high dpi and ppm, rendering excellent quality at faster speeds. They also have the highest duty cycles, handling greater monthly outputs. Efficient ink use makes them the savvy choice for budget-conscious businesses.
Color printers can create both black-and-white and full-color documents. They offer specialty features, such as color-matching calibration for exact hues every time. This feature can be used to create vibrant presentations, dynamic full-color brochures, professional graphic designs and colorful letterheads. Many models can also print on specialty paper types such as transparencies, photo paper and card stock. Both monochromatic and color Lexmark printers offer special features such as two-sided printing. Eco-friendly models also offer paper- and ink-saving settings and hibernation modes for reduced energy costs. The range of printers available from Staples makes it easy to find one with the features you need.
