Cheapest printing you'll ever do

DCISmith, Ciao
5 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Bought for printing out mainly text as I was starting college, upon unboxing I found that there was no black ink cartridge supplied. However, if you scout around amazon, you will find that number 17 and 27 ink cartridges are extremely cheap, so I ordered a no 17 black for around £7. After having done so, the printer was still cheaper than most of the competition. I now mainly use it for photo printing on glossy 4x6 paper.
  • Pros: Very very VERY cheap to run, if you know what you are doing .  Reasonable quality
  • Cons: No USB cable supplied

Ideal for students - quick, budget printing, that can handle any task but not a long term investment

  • Excerpt: Redefining "cheap" takes a few minutes of thought and the recent purchase of a Lexmark Z640 - a stigma which affordable technology is often haunted by. While the battle between price and sturdiness rages in the 18th floor of an American bauhaus chickencoup, or the Lexmark quality control cupboard, the end-users are left with an unmistakably budget inkjet hero.

A not very good machine

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer a couple of years ago and since then it has been nothing but trouble. It was OK to start with, printing at a good speed, good colour. But, however after about a year the printing began to become so slow it takes an eternity to print one page. Also, the colour isn't as good as it used to be so we are printing sub-standard things. Recently, the printer has given up completely and we cannot print at all.
  • Pros: Cheap, prints
  • Cons: Breaks, low printing, not good colour

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer from Argos,as I had a letter to print out and the printer at my local library was broken. It only cost me £19.99 and I was really pleased with the price. I was quite disapointed when I realized there was no USB cable, but luckily I had a spare one. I managed to get it set up ok and the print out was fine. After about a week however the ink started to fade.
  • Pros: The Price
  • Cons: No USB and also annoying installation CD

  • Excerpt: My cheap printer had finally decided to give up the ghost and I had to buy another cheap one to replace it. So like many people do I picked up the Argos book and began searching online. Now what was I looking for. Price had to be cheap and when I say cheap I wanted it to be under £20 Manufactory - had to be a name that I knew and was recognised as a printer company Availability of supplies - had to be able to get cartridges from many outlets So I researched online and...

Need a printer for university?

  • Excerpt: Perfect Student printer! Its cheap, and thats the most important thing. It doesnt have the best print quality, but you cant ask that much from a 20.00 printer. The box says 'easy colour printer' and thats what you will find inside. The large graphical set up instructions make it easy for anyone to install the printer without any troubles.
  • Pros: Cheap, easy to use
  • Cons: None, unless you want to print high quality photos .

  • Excerpt: I was first exposed to Lexmark back in 2000 when i worked for PC World. I was informed that they were used Epson Technology for their printers but i always associated the company with having expensive ink cartirdges at £30!!. Anyway, the company was created in 1991 with the objective of creating printers for both businesses and home use.
  • Pros: Cheap Printer
  • Cons: Expensive to Run

  • Excerpt: Absolute rubbish. Flimsy. Printed poor quality test page on installation then in green only. Has now given upthe ghost completely. If you must waste your money on this junk have it delivered directly to your recycling centre or rubbish dump and save yourself the trip.

My experience on Lexmark Z 640

tessmalu, Ciao
9 June 2007
  • Excerpt: Well, I bought my lexmark printer from currrys, this printer's printing quality is excellent. When you compare with some other quality printers sometimes we will not be able to tell the difference of their quality. To setup this printer is quite easy, anyone can do it . This is printer is compatible with Windows 98/Me/2000/XP. The printing speed of this printer is a bit slow but still it worths. A small problem occurs with printer is the Ink cartridge.
  • Pros: Cheap, Light Weight, excellent printing quality .  .
  • Cons: None
