Lexmark added three new printers to its lineup this week: the P350, the Z845, and the X5470.
The P350 is a portable photo printer that uses Lexmark's new Evercolor II pigment-based ink technology. Lexmark claims that this new ink, in combination with its new PerfectFinish Photo paper, dries faster and is highly water resistant. The printer can operate in stand-alone mode or connected to a computer (PC or Mac). It features memory card slots, a PictBridge port, and a 2.4-inch color display for previewing photos. The estimated street price for this model is $129.
The Z845 is a high-volume color inkjet printer that costs only $50. Lexmark claims output of 24 pages per minute (ppm) for black prints and 18ppm for color. It's capable of borderless photo printing and can use an optional color cartridge for six-color printing.
Rounding out the announcements is the X5470 all-in-one with fax. Ninety-nine dollars is already a rock-bottom price for an all-in-one with fax capabilities, but you also get media card slots, a PictBridge port, and a 10-page automatic document feeder.
We're working on getting all these models in for review, so check back.
