Lexmark International Inc. has expanded its Mac compatible 4800 dpi capable printers with the introduction of the Lexmark Z55se Color Jetprinter, a replacement of Z55.
Priced at US$129, the Z55se offers 4800 dpi (dots per inch) resolution and is targeted to budget-minded consumers. It runs on Mac OS 8.6 and higher, including Mac OS X (10.1-10.2)
Lexmark first came to market with 4800 dpi resolution when it introduced the $199 Z65 Color Jetprinter in March. The Z55se offers a maximum resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi in black and color on photo paper, inkjet paper and transparencies as well as 4800 x 600 dpi on plain paper. It also boasts print speeds of up to 17 pages per minute (ppm) in black and up to 13 ppm in color, three picoliter microfine color drop size, and an accu-feed paper handling system.
The Z55se uses Lexmark’s PrecisionSense technology, which automatically senses paper type and precisely adjusts driver settings for the best possible output, company spokesperson Andy Rohr said. It has both USB and parallel connectivity.
