New Lexmark laser printers
Lexmark International today introduced a new workgroup color laser printer series, the Lexmark C770 family, designed for business customers needing a versatile color printer that can handle a wide variety of media. The Lexmark C770 family includes the Lexmark C770n and C772n color laser printers and the Lexmark X772e color multifunction product (MFP) for customers who also want the ability to copy, scan and fax in monochrome and color from the same device. The Lexmark C770n can handle up to 1,100 sheets of media, and is priced at $1,000, while the Lexmark C772n is available for $1,500. The Lexmark X772e MFP adds the Lexmark 4600 scanner to a C772n with a large color touchscreen interface, and is slated for shipment on September 29th for $4,500.
The Lexmark C770 family prints at speeds up to 25 pages per minute (ppm) in both black-and-white as well as color, and features networking support for easy printer sharing. The devices can print up to 48-inch banners on media ranging from glossy card stock to vinyl labels.
The printers feature an operator panel for easy usage, offering graphical help messages that walk users through common problems to reduce the need for calls to a help desk. The operator panel also offers a USB port for the direct printing of PDF or image files from a flash storage device, and a 10-digit number pad for the easy entering of PIN numbers to print confidential jobs.
