Having reviewed virtually Lexmarks entire Z line of printers, weve finally arrived at the current flagship consumer inkjet offered by Lexmark - the Z53. This printer $129US printer features the same general capabilities and 2400x1200dpi of the $99 Z43 with a faster 16ppm (black)/8ppm (colour) print speed.
After having reviewed the impressive Z33 budget printer, we decided to take a look at some more of Lexmarks offerings. Thus we were faced with the $99US Z43, which features a 2400x1200dpi for both black and white prints in all paper types. It also lays claim to a speedy 12ppm black and 6ppm color print speed.
Although the Lexmark Z22 that we reviewed last week turned out some good results for its price class, it certainly was not a product to compare against the more mainstream midrange inkjets on the market.

The Lexmark Z22 is a budget priced inkjet colour printer with specs that put it above and beyond its price class. Considering its low cost of around $50USD, the Z22 the offers an impressive 1200x1200dpi resolution in regular black and full colour prints.

Epsons Photo Stylus 890 is a newly released model that competes in the same arena as the Canon S800 that we reviewed previously.

Samsungs printer line-up consists primarily of three major series: the 4000 series, 6000 series, and 7000 series. With our review of the ML-4500 a few weeks ago weve already seen what their budget 4000 series can do. Now we take a look at the more robust ML-6060S, which promises to push the envelope in small office performance and quality.
The Samsung ML-4500 is one of the cheapest 8ppm laser printers that you can get your hands on, and yet it offers some compelling features, a low cost-per page, and a fairly good print quality that wouldnt shame your home or small office.
