Very little of interest

cnflrpngrkn, Ebay
17 April 2008
  • Summary: The front cover comes off with a couple screws and some plastic tabs. The rest of the cover comes off with a few more screws and tabs. Most of the rest is snapped together in various ways. There is one DC motor sliding the head back and forth and one stepper motor for the feed rollers. Both are easily removed but are nothing special. The logic board is highly integrated and contains little of use.

Lexmark Z42 Printer

shayterry, Ebay
8 December 2007
  • Summary: I purchased a used Lexmark Z42 printer. I wanted the same printer that I purchased with my computer many years ago. I knew if I could find the same printer it would be easier for me to install. Plus I had purchased ink carridges before my printer stopped failed.

Lexmark z42 printer

muelcz, Ebay
21 October 2006
  • Summary: If you're looking for a dependable hardworking simple printer at a fair/reasonable price, this is it. Nothing fancy about it but print quality is excellent. It's quite and a great backup or second printer on an ucb. Ink cartages are reasonable price. As a Realtor, I used this one as secondary printer when I doing major long printouts on my office-jet.

The on off does exactly that, and the test sends a peice of paper through the printer. The printer wil hold around ...

  • Excerpt: "...you! But its not the lexmark Z42, unfortunately. works great with Windows environs, but not for long. the ink cartridges are expensive and leak, they dont completely empty before jamming, and customer assistance is almost fraudulent in their advice! We really wanted this printer to work out, too. but it hasnt. Dont buy one, even used. We bought new, and wish we'd paid more and bought the Canon, frankly. We attempted many times to resolve ...

LEX MARK Crap On Your Printer.......

Mattrober..., Ciao
25 May 2003
  • Excerpt: "The Lexmark I bought wasn’t from choice. I had it in my package with Tiny. But, when I heard it was Lexmark we’d had with the computer, I was thrilled and couldn’t be more ecstatic! I had heard of Lexmark, and I knew it was one of the best around. I’d never used it, but I was almost certain it would be good, and provide me with clear and sharp prints off my work. And that’s what it did for almost 2 years. After ...
  • Pros: Good printing, Good Customer Service

Quality printing

Stefan200..., Ciao
6 February 2003
  • Excerpt: "I've been a fan of Lexmark since I originally bought their 1020 Inkjet printer as a cheap way to buy a printer that is a fraction of costs of it's competitors. When I finally decided my 1020 was past its sell-buy date I had a look at some of the opposition Hewlet Packard, Cannon, Epsom and of course Lexmark. At the time Cannon and Epsom had some interesting deals and so I test drove two printers at a similar price and returned them. Hmm. I saw the ...
  • Pros: Cheap to buy, simple to run and good quality printing

  • Excerpt: "I got this printer from an insurance claim after nagging my insurance company, and was treated to a "better" printer than I should have got as a result (I should have got a measly Z12). Blimey was I impressed. I'm a student, and am used to "making do" with manky University printers, and my old one which was pretty naff compared to this one....not to mention the 100 year old one we've got at home...this printer is a dream. Installing it ...

Great quality printouts

Ciao
1 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "...eventually decided to buy the Lexmark Z42 from Argos. It cost me £89 (catalogue said £99, so pleasant surprise there). I got it home and set it up. Nice and easy to do. It would have been even nicer if they would have supplied the USB cable to connect it to the computer with. Anyway, with everything installed, I aligned the heads and a test page was printed. Hmm, very nice. I printed a page of my own to see how it would handle text and graphics ...
  • Pros: Nice printer, quick, quality printouts, low purchase price
  • Cons: Expensive to run (long term)

  • Excerpt: "The Lexmark Z42 is the older and sometimes referred to as the poor relative of other higher quality Lexmark inkjet printers. It is very fast even for the most complex documents. One of the best qulaities is the ink-use. It doesn't use as much as you'd think. And it does this without compromising quality. This is one of many good features in the Lexmark range. Basically, there isn't much difference from the Z42 and Z52 apart from there prices. It ...
  • Pros: does the job very well
  • Cons: bot suited for an office
