This review will be looking at the Lexmark Optra T644 printer using Lexmark Optra T644 toner. This is a great monochrome laser printer that will fit the requirements of small businesses and workgroups. It is not easy to choose a printer that fits your requirements. Not because there are not enough printers, but because there are too many. The variety of features, specifications and sheer number of companies that provide them makes finding the right printer like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. Only in this case, it is a stack of many other needles that all look alike.
Lexmark has seen the importance of providing a solid base and then allowing customers to decide what extras they need in series of printers they offer. This has to be one of the most expandable and accessory packed printers we have reviewed. The base model is selling at just under $700. This is the model we will be looking into. However, you can add built in networking, double-sided printing, or extra trays if you want, just to mention a few of the accessories available.
The Lexmark T640 is a nice balance between performance and price. The reason for this is that extra features have been kept to a minimum while still including them as available extras if the client requires them. This system allows users to decide what they want to pay for and what they do not.
This printer is a dedicated monochrome laser printer. It is fast and comes with high resolution printing. This means it is an ideal printer for a small to medium office that prints mainly documents and does not need a color laser printer. The processing speed of its chip is 514 MHz, which is great for helping with complex images and dealing with heavy printing queues.
This printer can be used on a variety of sizes and media types. It can handle vinyl labels, transparencies, envelopes and even polyester labels. It can also print on any size up to Folio which is 8.5 inches x 13 inches.
This model can print on all kinds of media types and sizes. Whether you are looking to print on polyester, vinyl, envelopes or fine paper, you will be fine with this model. The sizes available to print on are also flexible and work up to Folio size. Users who require a larger size, like A3 or A2, will have to invest in a larger printer.
Media feeders are more than adequate for most users. It comes standard with two trays, a large 500 sheet automatic feeder, and a smaller 100 sheet multipurpose tray. If your particular business requires a larger tray you can always get it for an extra fee.
One of the better features of the printer is its networking capabilities, unfortunately its networking connections are not in the same league. You will have to invest a bit more to get the built in networking capabilities. The Lexmark Optra T644 printer is a good idea for companies looking for speed, good networking features and a price tag designed for a tight budget.
Those on that tight budget will appreciate the prices of Lexmark Optra T644 printer toner when ordering online. Searching for Lexmark replacement toner brings up several reputable dealers who offer great prices on all brands of toner.
