Disadvantages small expensive ink cartridges. Only colour cartridge supplied
|Ease of use|
|Range of extra features / functions|
Firstly I should say that I am a complete novice at all things computer-orientated and have never bought a printer in my life before this one! I needed a printer that was small and light and could provide a reasonable standard of print for a low-to-average user and the Lexmark Z601 has not only lived up to but exceeded my expectations in this respect. Its dimensions are width 40.4cm, depth 21.6cm, height 13.5cm and it weighs only 1.8kg.
Knowing nothing about these things, I was a bit worried that I would not be able to connect it up right or get it going but the installation was really easy (and if I can do it, anyone can!). The instruction manual was very simple (with diagrams!) and the disk to load the software was very straightforward to follow.
Whenever you print the computer shows an on-screen indicator of the amount of ink left and tells you when printing has started and is complete. The printer is very quiet when printing, and has a fold down lid to protect it from getting dust in its innards when not in use which I find very useful.
All in all, I would say the Lexmark Z601 is a good value-for-money printer if your usage is low, however if you expect to do a lot of printing you may want to consider another printer that uses cheaper ink cartridges (and possible comes with the usb lead supplied).
