Minimal use only

Advantages Cheap, lightweight

Disadvantages Slow, expensiveink cartridges

"...of searching I found the LEXMARK Z640 which was selling for £25.99 at Comet. I've been using this printer at home for about a year now and decided it was about time that I wrote a review about it. **What is it** The Z640 is a colour thermal inkjet designed for everyday printing needs. **Appearance** The printer is quite small in size measuring 404 x 216 x 135 mm and weighing just 4.5kg. The printer is a very light grey colour, with ..." Read review

An easy colour printer

Advantagesreasonable price

Disadvantagesphoto printing quality isn't good

"...can get it cheaper from lexmark website itself. It is cheaper because they are doing promotion. It is now cost £19.18 for two (including VAT at 17.5%). In other words, it comes in a twin pack. The normal price is £22.56 (Including VAT). However the promotion of 15% off will be due on 24th April 2007. Design I will not say it is the nicest one. It is not ugly, very plain, not too big (although it could be smaller). It fits well with that price. ..." Read review

Cheapest printing you'll ever do

AdvantagesVery very VERY cheap to run, if you know what you are doing. Reasonable quality

DisadvantagesNo USB cable supplied

"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. For this the quality is ..." Read review

Cheap £20 Printing Solution??

AdvantagesCheap Printer

DisadvantagesExpensive to Run

"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. They were also one of the first companies to offer cheap printers below the £50 mark and i bought this printer ..." Read review

A "nice little printer"

AdvantagesEasy to instal Lightweight

DisadvantagesNone as yet

"I bought this printer to just do a few "printing chores" at work. I was fed up with going into internet cafes to print out schedules, staff photos and profiles, etc., and so I decided to treat us to a printer to link up to my personal laptop, which I bring into work and which everybody tends to use. It is currently on special at Argos for £19.99, so I thought I'd have one, easy to purchase in the manner of all normal Argos walk-in transactions. ..." Read review

My experience on Lexmark Z 640

AdvantagesCheap, Light Weight, excellent printing quality..

DisadvantagesNone

"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 ..." Read review

Bargain Basement Beauty

AdvantagesCheap, reasonable quality

Disadvantageslightweight materials, no black ink cartridge included, quite slow

"...is a bit odd, as Lexmark does not offer the option of Z640 on their dropdowns! However, it feeds paper accurately, prints to an acceptably high resolution and goes fast enough for home use. For the price, you can't beat it! ..." Read review

Cheap and cheerful for the student or activist

AdvantagesSmall and cheap

DisadvantagesDraft quality printing

"I bought this from ASDA for £19.96, so it beats the prices I've seen everywhere else. I wanted something cheap and small to fit my desktop, and would be decent enough to produce black and white leaflets good enough for photocopying. So far it is good enough. The setup was worrying, only one printer cartridge, but that was ok, you can load just one or two, I have not come across that before. The noise is acceptably low and the speed is sufficient ..."

Quick review of Lexmark Z 640

"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.

Need a printer for university?

AdvantagesCheap, easy to use

DisadvantagesNone, unless you want to print high quality photos.

"...insinct was to check the Lexmark websites for replacements - you can get (up to date price) 1 black and 1 colour for 22 pounds. I thought this was reasonable, but this being my first printer i dont know in comparison. You can also get them for cheaper on Ebay - but watch out for the 'compatible' ones - these might invalidate your guarantee. Printing speed isnt the best, but is acceptable. Print quality is high - first few prints seemed to have ..." Read review

Excellent budget printer

AdvantagesExcellent print quality for text documents

DisadvantagesQuite slow. Poor quality photo printing. Expensive ink cartridges

"...and considered high quality. The Lexmark Z640, although quite sluggish, produces very decent printed documents. I find it impossible to tell the difference between documents printed at home, on the Z640, and those printed at college. You would not expect superb photo quality from a printer of this price range and you don't get it. However it does print colour documents reasonably well which is satisfactory for my own requirements. You shouldn't ..." Read review

A not very good machine

AdvantagesCheap, prints

DisadvantagesBreaks, low printing, not good colour

"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. The printer is quite hard ..." Read review

Lexmark Z 640

AdvantagesThe Price

DisadvantagesNo USB and also annoying installation CD

"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. The words appear red and do not even get me started on pictures.I thought ..." Read review

Poor quality prints and talkind driver

Advantagesits cheap

Disadvantagesthe cheapness shows

"I bought this printer in an emergency, and there is not much to say about it that is positive. Yes it is cheap but it's not good value. To start with it only comes with a colour cartridge so initially black is washed out and expensive to print as it mixes all the colours. The images are not that crisp even with realignment of the print head. It has silly software that talks to you (this can be turned off and should be) and does not come with a USB ..." Read review
