However despite Lexmarks claims to the contrary, I do not feel this is a printer suitable for ‘Photography buffs’. Their Accu-feed technology aims to keep the paper print area parallel to the edge of the sheet and reduce the chances of jamming. Comparing the same print from the Z65n and the Canon S, the Z65n ink drops are harder to spot. The Z65n uses a basic tricolor cartridge system. The print status window shows information on the remaining ink and can have its appearance changed through skins.

Lexmark Z65n in Inkjet Printers. Producing the best results so far, skin details showed up very clearly producing an average photo-realistic print.
Lexmark Z65n Inkjet Printer Review
The text performance of the Z65n was average, with the normal quality mode being reasonably sharp. The curved design is quite stylish and build quality is good. They are also not cheap, costing around 22 for the black and 25 for the colour and they also don’t offer a very large capacity. This has helped keep the cost of the printers design and development down but compromises the quality of printing possible.
Also included is an automatic driver updater that connects to the Internet for the latest software. The automatic head-alignment performed well, with there being no evidence of lexmaro banding commonly seen with mis-aligned heads.

Lexmark Z65n Inkjet Printer
With printers available on the market such as the Canon S that turn out a colour photo in a quarter of the time it takes the Z65, things don’t look good. Print quality Our print samples varied considerably.
Mediocre print quality combined with slow performance and high running costs mean appeal is limited. You must be a member to leave a pritner.
Those with more confidence in setting up and configuring inkjet printers would be far better off looking at offerings from Canon and Epson. The high quality mode produced a shadowed effect, making it far worse than normal mode. Normal text printing was reasonably fast but things from then on got worse, with a very slow best quality text mode performance. Automatic print-head alignment is another feature making this printer easy to setup for the first time user.
However the paper choices are limited and we’d like to see a wider selection available. Both colour graphics and photo printing were also very slow.
The exception to this was the draft text mode which spat out pages very quickly but with a lexmzrk sacrifice in quality. USB, power and network connections are located at the rear.
Overall, despite having easier to spot ink droplets the S produces a more pleasing to the eye print. Get the latest photography news straight to your inbox by signing up to our newsletter.
