Lexmark (Lexington, Ky.) has introduced a series of printers designed for smaller working groups. The company has unveiled nine monochrome laser multifunction products (MFPs) that are designed to provide users with a small profile device that is optimized for use with small and midsize workgroups in any size organization.
The Lexmark X460 Series features the company's customizable e-Task color touch screen, which offers simple access to a range of features such as two-sided scanning, advanced copying and user authentication for enhanced security. Individual users can personalize their own e-Task touch screen with Lexmark's MyMFP solution.
The Lexmark X264dn and X360 Series combine numerous office functions into one desktop device. The X264dn and X360 Series are network-ready devices that feature an intuitive operator panel, according to the company. Users can obtain print results up to 1200x1200 dpi print quality, in addition to scan resolution with the 24-bit color CCD scanner. A 50-sheet automatic document feeder can scan two-sided documents and an optional paper drawer expands capacity up to 850 sheets.
Lexmark designed all these new models to be more environmentally friendly. They come standard with built-in two sided printing to reduce paper waste in addition to Eco-Mode and Quiet Mode to save energy and reduce noise. The X460 Series includes access to extra-high-yield toner cartridges yielding up to 15,000 pages2, meaning customers replace cartridges less frequently. The X264dn and X360 Series include access to high-yield replacement cartridges yielding up to 9,000 pages2. The devices also ship with Lexmark Return Program Toner Cartridges, which can be returned to Lexmark free of charge for remanufacturing or recycling.
Both the X460 Series and X360 Series feature wireless models that are Wi-Fi Certified 802.11n draft 2.0 3. With wireless printing capabilities, one device can be shared by multiple users.
