Lexmark's X6170 All-in-One. Courtesy of Lexmark, with modifications by Michael R. Tomkins. Lexmark: Six new 1200dpi inkjet printers (UPDATED)
By
(Wednesday, April 30, 2003 - 05:55 EDT)

Lexmark has unveiled six new thermal inkjet printers (three of them all-in-one devices with a built-in flatbed scanner), our good friend Peter Burian noticed.

Amongst this number is what Lexmark says is the first sub-US$100 photo printer with built-in slots accepting Compact Flash Type I / II (including Microdrive), Secure Digital, SmartMedia or Memory Stick cards. All of the printers look to share a similar print engine, with 1200dpi resolution - print speed being the differentiating factor between the Z605 and Z705, whilst the Z707 adds the flash card slots. Similarly, the PrinTrio X1150 is the base model, and the X6150 has faster print speeds. The differences don't end there this time, though, because the X6150 uses a 1200dpi CCD for the scanner, rather than the 600dpi CIS in the X1150. Finally, the X6170 adds a sheet feeder, but is otherwise quite similar to the X6150.

Pricing for the Lexmark Z605 is US$49, whilst the Z705 costs US$79 and the P707 is US$99. Availability is stated as a rather non-specific "soon", and pricing is not disclosed for the All-in-One models..

Original Source Press Release:

Lexmark unveils industry's first sub-$150 photo printer with camera card slots as part of 2003 inkjet line

-- Enhanced ease-of-use features, new photo capabilities, and up to 4800 dpi across the line underscore Lexmark's technology leadership and commitment to customers --

LEXINGTON, Ky. Apr 29 2003

Lexmark International, Inc. (NYSE: LXK) today introduced the most comprehensive inkjet line in its history, featuring three new inkjet series to meet the growing range of consumer printing needs.

The line offers two photo printers, including the industry's first sub-$100 photo printer with on-board camera card readers, as well as a feature-rich, easy-to-use entry inkjet printer for novice users. Lexmark also unveiled three newly designed All-In-One inkjets - the PrinTrio™ X1150, X6150, and X6170 - in a separate release today.

"Lexmark's sole focus has always been on developing printing solutions that meet the needs of our customers - and that singular passion can be seen in this extensive line. Our 2003 inkjet line, provides an attractive range of printing options for all types of consumers," said Najib Bahous, Lexmark vice president and president of its Consumer Printer Division. "From affordable inkjet printers with high-end performance to sophisticated photo printers, Lexmark delivers innovative, easy-to-use products for users as diverse as students, photo enthusiasts and small-business owners."

The introduction of this robust line of inkjets continues Lexmark's legacy of print quality excellence with a maximum 4800 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) resolution on photo paper available across the entire product line. In addition, Lexmark's exclusive Photo Center software helps users effortlessly tap into sophisticated photo editing features to enhance and simplify the digital printing experience. Integrated driver software includes 'red-eye' reduction, color manipulation and photo sizing - all easily accessible and user friendly.

The Z600 Color Jetprinter Series
Lexmark's $49* Z600 Color Jetprinter series provides novice users seeking a high-quality, all-around printer, with up to 4800 x 1200 dpi print resolution and fast prints speeds of up to 14 pages-per-minute (ppm) in black and up to 8 ppm in color. These affordable inkjets are ideal for quickly printing school reports, Web pages and simple color graphics and images.

The Z700 Photo Jetprinter Series
For consumers interested in creating photo quality output, the Z700 Photo Jetprinter series is capable of borderless printing**, allowing users to generate output that is suitable for framing and display. In addition, the $79* Z700 series offers six-color photo print capability, using an optional photo cartridge, for brilliant color photos.

In addition to offering great looking photos, Lexmark's exclusive Photo Center Software allows users to easily edit photos (red eye reduction, crop, rotate, add text, etc.) as well as create scrapbook pages, develop an online photo album, and even create a "slide show" from your PC monitor.

Featuring automatic cartridge alignment and PrecisionSense™ technology, which automatically adjusts the driver according to the paper type being fed through the paper tray, the Z700 series is easy to operate. Well suited for consumers seeking an all-purpose inkjet with superb photo printing capabilities, the Z700 series has fast print speeds of up to 17 ppm in black, and can churn out 4" X 6" photos in normal mode in about 60 seconds.

The P700 Photo Jetprinter Series
The P700 series is geared toward digital photographers interested in creating prints that rival photo lab quality. A sister product to the Z700 series, the P700 series offers the same technology listed above, with the addition of on-board camera card readers to further simplify the digital photo printing experience. The P700 series also ships with both a color and photo cartridge, for brilliant six-color printing. Accommodating six camera card types - CompactFlash I & II, Secure Digital, SmartMedia, Memory Stick and Multi-Media Card - the P700 Series supports virtually all leading digital cameras. Priced at $99*, Lexmark's P700 is the first sub-$100 photo printer with camera card readers.
