The printer manufacturer Lexmark is updating its office ink printers with two new designs. On the inside, new cartridges are now being created which are significantly higher in printing costs, and Lexmark has also shortened the warranty. With the Lexmark Pro715 and the Pro915, Lexmark is updating the top-of-the-line AIOs with single cartridges that the company introduced over two years ago. The two replace the Prevail Pro705 and the Pinnacle Pro 901.
Under the hood, a 4-color printing unit that saves six color pages and ten b / w ISO pages per minute is a pretty office paper printer. The standard features include a fax in conjunction with an automatic document feeder (ADF), which is not duplexable, but can not scan front and back without user interaction. Added to this are USB and network interfaces (Wlan and Lan) as well as a duplexer for automatic two-sided printing.
Lexmark Pro715 has a color palette of gray-black monotonous that could have earned points with us in the past, but now feels too typical of an office printer. Its smooth edges and rounded paper entry tray shave sharp angles and makes the device look slimmer, but the overall design lines have changed very little.
The most important change to the body involves a small LCD screen, which now flush on the control panel are much slimmer in the central unit. Fortunately, a clear plastic window protects the function button, which once the tip now does not exist, but instead of shifting it to other parts of the disk, get rid of completely Lexmark, get the shortcut keys and integrated into the virtual menu tray. We do not mind, but it prevents you from certainly going straight to the device up and select copy, scan, fax or print.
Instead of large LCD touchscreen you get the Epson Workforce 845, Lexmark Pro715 has a screen with directional dial 2.4 inch color LCD has only to scroll to the right screen menus, and the number buttons to dial fax numbers.
Lexmark Pro715 also includes the Eco mode button marked with a green sheet on the right, double-sided printing, copy triggers and faxing thanks to the duplexer on the back. Lexmark continues to reduce its environmental footprint through Energy Star certification and an updated black “setup capacity” 2.0 Vizix print cartridge is rated at 400 pages per cartridge.
Paper silo drawer built into the base and can only hold 150 sheets of paper that can be enough for a small business. However, many companies of the Epson Workforce can find more comfortable with the tablet of 250 sheets of paper standard 8.5×11 inches and a separate compartment for 250 sheets of photo paper.
Surprisingly, Lexmark did not include a media card reader as found on the right bottom side of Lexmark Pro715 model; perhaps customers are excited to spend an extra $ 50 of Pro915 step-up. Also, for the same price as Lexmark Pro715, the Epson Workforce has two media card slots on the front USB port compatible with PictBridge for printing directly from the digital camera. You even have to get a copy of Epson Easy Photo Print software for editing image in the field light.
You can connect Lexmark Pro715 to a host computer with an 802.11b / g / n wireless device, or through an integrated USB port. With the included driver CD, we could set the printer to communicate with both methods of connection in less than 10 minutes; So make sure you have provided your network login and password.
