Lexmark Platinum Pro905 Multifunction Review
After much soul searching, revamping, overhauling and redesign, it would appear that Lexmark has finally created something that will bring them up to speed with their big competitors. Enter the Lexmark Platinum Pro905 Multifunction Printer…starting with the change in appearance. Lexmark's new line has soft curves and a professional appearance; very much unlike the stark white sharp edged look of it's' predecessors.
The Pro905 performs the function of a color copier, scanner, printer and full featured fax machine. It can print 33 pages per minute at maximum speed and can make up to 300 copies without having to reload the dual paper tray. It performs duplex printing, cutting paper usage by 50% and impressive still is the variety of different media that the Lexmark supports, thus allowing one machine to print more than just memos, but greeting cards, envelopes, labels, transparencies, iron-on transfers, banners and high quality photos. Armed with Vizix print technology the Pro905 gets results with sharper clearer text and vivid images. The Lexmark Platinum Pro905 can produce anything a small business may want or need in-house for less and with just one machine. Using the Ethernet or wireless networking allows multiple computers to print to the Pro905 at the same time.
Speaking of less, the biggest news coming out of the Lexmark camp is what they have done with the ink. The Pro905 uses high yield cartridges that will allow up to 510 pages (black) to be printed/copied prior to ink replacement. When the ink does need to be replaced the new high yield cartridge will cost only $4.99 retail that is literally a penny a page. As well, the Pro905 uses 4 different high yield cartridges, eliminating wasted ink because only the color that is out need be replaced.
Web and WiFi capable, the Pro905 supports all current operating systems and has 64MB of internal memory. As well, the card reader supports data retrieval from most any memory card or stick and is Pictbridge compatible. Dubbed the Smarter Printer, at the heart of the Pro 905 is a 4.3" touch screen called myTouch that will guide users through any and all print functions or the creation of custom print jobs online that can be sourced and printed directly from the web.
If all of the features of the Pro905 aren't enough, Lexmark has chosen to back up their product(s) with a 5 year warranty thus protecting your investment. The Pro905 averages $399.99 retail but is clearly worth the investment in the long run.
