Lexmark Z2490 Review

One of the best things to happen in the technological world in the past five years is the advancement of wireless printing. What used to be science fiction is now something that has become commonplace, and it's something that you can use with a wide variety of different types of machines. Now even printers come with the ability to utilize wi-fi connections, and if you're looking for a printer that is able to access wi-fi, is sold for a decent price, and can print beautifully, the Lexmark Z2490 is a very good option for you to look into.

What Is It

This printer is one that is created for light printing. It's not something that you'd look to if you have to print a number of pages every day, as the printer would not be able to handle that amount of printing, but it is something that is perfect for the person who only needs to print here or there. Many find it the perfect student printer, as it is small and compact which is ideal for a student's room. It is one of Lexmark's first wireless printers and has a decent networking range.

The Good

As we stated, the wireless capability of this printer is definitely the best thing about this printer. Unlike other printers from the same company, the Lexmark Z2490 is actually very easy to set up to your wireless network. If a student is going to be using this printer in a college dorm, they may need to hook it up to their computer directly as the range of the printer is not as good as it could be. Another good thing about this printer is the price of the Lexmark ink. Unlike some printers, the ink price for this printer is actually very low, which is ideal for people who are on a budget.

The Bad

While the price of the printer is great, many people complain that it does not last very long. If you're looking to get two or three years out of your printer, this is a good option. If you want something that will last longer, you may want to avoid this specific printer.

The Verdict

For an inexpensive printer, the Lexmark Z2490 is definitely more than good enough, especially since it has wireless capabilities. But if you're looking to purchase a printer that has the ability to last for a long time, this is definitely not a good option.
