Lexmark Impact S305 review

 

If your printing needs are modest, you might not mind the Lexmark Impact S305's running costs; but in this price range, the Canon Pixma MX340 offers more for the money.

The Lexmark Impact S305 provides a beer-budget machine with champagne-budget inks. If you stick with the high-yield cartridges, this MFP may prove to be reasonably affordable for a low-volume home or student user. Still, we've seen better options among...

Making an Impact : Lexmark S305 Impact

 

First came the Lexmark Interpret and this was followed by the Lexmark Intuition. Now it is the turn of the Lexmark S305 which follows the same pattern of being assigned a name beginning with “I”. In this case this multifunction device is known as Impact.

When using the scanner you can send the results to a computer, external storage device, email client or direct to the printer as it acts as a photocopier in either colour or monochrome mode. An A4 colour photocopy took 36 seconds to complete

Lexmark Impact S305

 

The Lexmark Impact S305 is a budget MFP with a basic feature set and good speed for its price.

Good business printing speed for the price. Fast photo printing. WiFi.

Limited feature set. Sub-par photo quality. Awkward printing from memory cards or USB keys.

Lexmark Impact S305

 

The Lexmark Impact S305 inkjet multifunction printer (for printing, copying, and scanning) offers a basic set of features and capabilities for just $100 (as of June 7, 2010), which would make it a real bargain except that its ink prices are extremely...

Good output quality ; Low initial purchase price

Minimal configuration ; Extremely expensive inks

It's nice that such an inexpensive MFP includes Wi-Fi, but only low-volume users could tolerate the expensive inks.

Review: Lexmark Impact S305 multifunction printer

 

It's nice that such an inexpensive MFP includes Wi-Fi, but only low-volume users could tolerate the expensive inks.

Lexmark's setup routine can guide a novice through every step of printer setup; savvier users can skip through at a faster pace. The wireless installation we chose required a brief connection via USB. Lexmark installs exactly one shortcut to the...
