Quality Prints, Competitive Pricing

Two new inkjet printers from Epson and Lexmark are both touted as photo-quality printers and are designed to appeal to digital camera enthusiasts.

Even people who may not consider themselves very tech-savvy appreciate the high ease of use and functionality of digital cameras - the point-and-shoot mentality appeals to photography amateurs and professionals worldwide. Accordingly, photo-quality printers are booming in popularity even as they reduce in price, producing convenient quality prints without visiting a development lab.

Lexmark Z818

The Z818 is excellent value for money and is targeted at the small and medium business market. If you're after a printer that offers fast print speeds and fine printing up to 4800dpi, the Z818 is hard to pass up. It delivers speeds of up to 22ppm in black and 15ppm in colour, and has a duty cycle of 3000 pages per month. Six colour ink cartridges (three colours per cartridge) are used, which are very easy to install. The unit itself is very light and is black and silver in colour. A rear fold-down tray holds the paper in place and another retractable tray collects the prints upon completion.

Lexmark Z818 printer

The Z818 doesn't support direct printing from a camera or memory card slots; it must be connected to a PC via USB 2.0 to produce prints. The vibrancy of photos was very good during testing, and borderless printing takes approximately 32 seconds per 4x6in paper.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
