*30 April 2008 - *Lexmark has just introduced the Z2420 printer that includes wireless, Accu-feed technology that Lexmark claims to virtually eliminate paper jams, and claimed print speeds of up to 25 ppm for black and up to 18 ppm for color. The printer also has an optional second set of high yield ink that Lexmark claims will produce cheaper prints.
The Lexmark Z2420 includes built-in 802.11g/b WiFi for wireless printing. While little information is given about the Accu-feed technology feature of the printer, Lexmark claims it’s a special paper handling system that nearly eliminates paper jams and misfeeds. The scheduled print feature allows print request to be scheduled for printing at a later time; useful if you want to print out a big document, but don't want to tie up the office printer for an extended time.
Lexmark claims the Z2420 is capable of producing resolutions as high as 1200 x 1200 dpi in black and as high as 4800 x 1200 dpi in color.
An interesting option the Z2420 has available is high yield ink catridges, which Lexmark claims with produce cheaper prints. Lexmark claims the optional high yield ink cartridges contain double the ink of the standard models, so each cartridge can produce double the number of prints. Both black and color cartridges are available, and Lexmark claims the ink produces business quality text and produces sharper blacks. The Lexmark Z2420 is able to print on a variety of papers including photo and transparency, as well.
The Lexmark Z2420 is currently available for purchase for $79.99.
