Over a year going strong

  • Summary: I bought this printer 6/02 and used approx 500 pages of paper, I simply love it, it prints circles around Epsons and HPs I have had in the past. Black and white printing is blazing fast, on par with mid grade laser printers I've used when printing pages from acrobat and plain text, slower with b/w...

No Problems Yet

J. Eberhard "photo man", Amazon
8 January 2003
  • Summary: I've had this since August (5 months) and I have yet to have a problem. It is FAST, the quality is great in both black & color & photo modes. The cartridge lasted 5 months with moderate printing... not bad, but not especially good. Much better deal than the Z65, or any of the HP printers.

Beware of the Drivers

Amazon
6 December 2002
  • Summary: Lexmark has the worst driver support of any printer company I have encountered. Not only are there constant problems, but they have a very annoying 'control program' that pops up every time you print something. Avoid them unless you like headaches.

Great when it works...but that's not all that often

  • Summary: For the first few months, this worked like a dream. Then it started misfiring paper and either not printing, printing one line, or printing skewed. Basically, not worth the money.

Slow, doesn't work

Samuel W. Hills, Amazon
22 October 2002
  • Summary: The Lexmark Z55 was advertised as being very fast and easy to use. NOT TRUE! It took several tries to get the software installed, and the printer ran extremely slow, when it did print at all. It would not print at all from DOS, or from other computers on the network.

Great photo printer at a low price

MadCat, Ciao
14 December 2003
  • Excerpt: When I bought my Lexmark Z55 it was £69.99 from Comet. There was a test print, which showed the print quality was fine for what we wanted - namely printing photos, and the occasional letter.
  • Pros: Low initial price, adequate printing quality, easy to use
  • Cons: High price of cartridges

Superb budget printer

stinkybee, Ciao
25 February 2003
  • Excerpt: When I bought this printer it was £99 and I believe it is even cheaper now. Installation was fairly easy although it did not come with a USB cable, so I had to use one I already had. The printer driver is included in a CD, but I suggest downloading the latest driver from Lexmark's website.
  • Pros: Quiet, Fast, Cheap
  • Cons: Ink cartridges quite expensive, no cable provided

Plus jamais Lexmark

15 February 2009
  • Summary: Bonjour, j'ai acquis une lexmark Z55 à 120 ? en 2003. J'avais confiance en la marque, elle est quand même réputée. Je n'utilise pas tout le temps l'imprimante, d'où peut-être le fait que les premiers problèmes sont arrivés tardivement...
  • Pros: deux cartouches, simplicité d'utilisation, design
  • Cons: pannes récurentes, cartouches chères et à fortes consommations, désign mais encombrante, soucis
