A Flurry of Printers - Lexmark Printer Launch Event

Printers @ Work

Braving the haze and scorching hot sun commonly associated this time of the year in the South East Asia region, we made our way to Lexmark's printer launch event held last Thursday at The Glass Hall at the Singapore Art Museum. With more than 20 new printers in their new lineup, we can certainly see why the launch was dubbed by Lexmark as their largest and widest this year.

Aimed primarily for work use, Lexmark's extensive selection of new products has features and technology that aims to cater to workgroups of all sizes (from small offices to large departmental workgroups) to help boost productivity, save paper and money. Features such as duplex printing and scanning, direct printing from USB, wireless connectivity, and high capacity cartridges can be found on Lexmark's new workgroup printers.

Lexmark's new printers are here to help corporations save money and time, as well as the environment.

Also noteworthy is Lexmark's e-Task Interface. It is a touchscreen interface that provides quick and easy access to the printer's functions. What's more, we were also told that the screen can be customized to suit an office's or department's needs - you can add your company's logo, edit the icons, or even disable copy functions to cut down on paper among others.

Lexmark's new lineup includes single and multi-function, monochrome and color printers, so there's bound to be something for everyone. And with so many printers on show, here are the some highlights from the event.

The X360 series is geared for small offices and workgroups and has features like duplex printing and scanning.

Targeted at small offices, the X364dn is a multi-function network monochrome laser printer that features duplex printing and scanning, hands-free copying, wireless connectivity and is able to print up to 9000 pages on a single high-yield cartridge.

The X460 series is meant for medium sized workgroups and differs from the X360 with its superior print capacity, print speed and the e-Task Interface.

For medium-sized workgroups, there is the X463de, another multi-function monochrome laser printer. Duplex printing and scanning comes as standard, and it can print up to 15000 pages with a single extra-high-yield cartridge. The X463de also features the new e-Task touchscreen interface for easy operation.

Th X656 family is a further step up from the X460 and is specially designed for large workgroups.

For large workgroups, there is the x656de multi-function monochrome laser printer. It prints, scans, faxes and copies, and is about to print a staggering 36000 pages on a solo extra-high-yield cartridge. It also features the highly customizable e-Task interface.

Lexmark had a couple of inkjet printers on display too. This is the top-of-the-line X7675.

For something with a smaller footprint, there's the X7675 multi-function wireless inkjet printer. It prints, copies, scans and faxes, and is ideal for home offices.
