Lexmark Z51

Consumer Democracy
27 September 2002
  • Summary: I purchased the Lexmark Z51 after reading excellent review in PCComputing. My original model Epson Stylus Color, which had provided very good output at 720 dpi, developed a problem printing sharp resolution in the 720 dpi mode. Repair costs would have been $187.00. Lexmark Z51 was less, with $50 rebate. I design and illustrate book covers. The output from the Z51 on glossy paper is outstanding!
  • Pros: High, laser quality Photo output on glossy paper
  • Cons: "Drinks" ink with 1200 X 1200 dpi

Lexmark Z51

Consumer Democracy
21 May 2001
  • Summary: I really like this printer. It has high quality output - 1200x1200 DPI and prints very quickly. It uses a liquid based ink (some inkjets have a powder based ink) so drying times for prints are a little longer - you can smudge a print for the first few minutes. I did have problems with the CD included with the printer and had to download the driver from Lexmark's web site. I am pleased with this printer and would suggest it to anyone looking for a high quality printer.
  • Pros: Quick, quiet, high quality prints
  • Cons: Ink dries a little slowly, so you have to be careful with prints at first

  • Excerpt: "...o0o I am writing about the Lexmark z51 Inkjet Printer. I have written about this under my previous username (markcollins) but I would like to say that this opinion is, well, an updated one at that! o0o THE PRINTER o0o The Printer was launched back in late 1999 and was billed to be the top selling Ink-jet on the market. It precedes a long line of printers, currently being marketed by Lexmark. Installation of the driver takes about 5 minutes and ...

  • Excerpt: "The Lexmark Z51 was launched as the latest Ink Jet printer back in 2000 and since then the popularity has reached boiling point. Over 1 million of these have been sold in the Uk and Ireland alone. The printer comes with all of the connections (USB) and is quite a cheap printer as it is only £120 at its most expensive. My father bought ours for £99 at Costco and we have had it now for just under a year. The printer uses the Lexmark Black cartridge ...
  • Pros: Compact design, good out put

Excellent Printer but.....

  • Excerpt: "I bought a Lexmark Z51 printer nearly 2 years ago. It was heavily used, and performed very well during this time. The quality was excellent, although the 1200×1200 setting was only used once (to test it when it was first bought!) 18 months after buying it, I went on holiday for a week, and switched off the power at the socket. When I came back, I switched it back on, but the printer simply flashed it lights and would not respond. The buttons did ...
  • Pros: Good quality, fairly small footprint, extremely fast
  • Cons: Pricey cartridges

Lexmark Z51 A Good Printer

sjwags1, Ciao
24 February 2001
  • Excerpt: "...schoolwork, so we went for the Lexmark Z51 at just under £150 it has proved to be a real bargain. It has coped well with printing loads of information of the internet for the kids school projects. The quality of the print on normal paper is excellent. On photo quality paper you find it hard to distinguish from the actual photo,it is that good. The main expense is going to be replacing the ink cartridges,at about £27 pounds a time for the ...
  • Pros: Quality and fairly quick
  • Cons: price of ink cartridges

Cheap and effective

  • Excerpt: "We needed a good photo-quality printer at a reasonable price, and the Z51 fulfilled both criteria. Additionally it had the advantage of being connected via a USB hub. Print quality is very good, and speed of print pretty fast - even if the paper take-up is somewhat agressive and alarming! Like the pull-out paper support tray. The print control panel (on the PC screen) is very useful - giving information on the status of the print and quantity ...
  • Pros: Good quality printing, reasonably fast, ink level indication
  • Cons: Bit noisy and aggressive

Lexmark Z 51

12 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "...high, I kept seeing the Lexmark Z51 on the internet in the reviews at CNET and other places. I talked to a lot of people I know about print quality and Lexmark kept popping up. I have a daughter in college, she's very picky about a good grade point average. Good texts on term papers, kind of gets points with the professor. So I bought a Lexmark Z51 from OnSale.com , they had at the time about the cheapest prices and free shipping. When our new " Z51" ...
  • Pros: Great software , easy to use

A good printer!

  • Excerpt: "The Lexmark Z 51 has excellent photo printing capabilities and is good value for money at a snip of £150. I have recently had the opportunity to use the Lexmark Z 51 and what a stunning printer it is indeed. Ink economy is slightly above average but replacement cartridges won't break the bank like some budget models do. I totally back the purchase of the Lexmark Z 51 inkjet printer and think that for the money it costs you will not be able to find ...

  • Excerpt: "...minutes, i decided to upgrade. The Lexmark Z51 seemed the best choice as it was faster than the Epson photo 750, and was only £120 by Mail order. The text is very crisp, and does not blotch at all, even if you are printing 50 pages one after the other. The quoted speed of 10 per munite is slightly misleading though. it does approx 3 in very fine mode or 5 in draft. The colour photographs were OK when printed on normal paper but on special ...
