Lexmark Impact S305

 

The Lexmark Impact S305 ($99.99 direct) is an inexpensive multifunction printer (MFP) that provides good speed for its price and decent text and graphics output. It doesn't give you a lot of frills, but it provides solid performance.

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

The Lexmark Impact S305 is a no-frills multifunction printer (MFP) that provides good business-printing speed for its price, fast photo printing, and decent text and graphics quality.

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.

The Impact S305 is Lexmark's budget printer for homes that don't have a lot of money to spend but still want the added functionality of a multifunction printer. We hesitate to slap the "all-in-one" label on it, as the device has no dedicated fax...

Fast print speeds; inexpensive; easy wireless setup; comprehensive driver features.

Lacks automatic document feeder; small LCD screen.

The Lexmark Impact S305's low price tag, simple setup, and straightforward features are sure to draw in budget customers with intermittent printing needs. With extra features like wireless printing and a media card reader, the Impact earns a solid...

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...

The Impact S305 multifunction printer from Lexmark is their latest model with an amazingly cheap price tag of around $75. It comes with many features too despite its low price tag, including wireless printing and media card slots. It does have a few...

Inexpensive ; Wireless printing ; Fast print speeds ; Excellent print quality

Small LCD display ; No auto-document feeder

We found that print speeds are extremely fast across the board, with graphics, colors, and black and white. The black text quality of the Impact S305 is extremely good and color photo quality was also very good with little color misrepresentation or...

Its features reflect its budget price, but this solid all-in-one printer will satisfy most home users who need decent speed and quality.

Good-quality text, photos for the price; speeds on some jobs faster than on pricier printers; easy-to-use interface

Inconsistent speeds; features are bare-bones; no document feeder, duplexing option

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Lexmark S305 Impact All-in-One Printer

 

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Lexmark Impact S305 - Wireless All-in-One Printer

 

Lexmark applies its new Vizix print engine to this wireless printer and scanner.

The machine is compatible with Windows, OSX and Linux, though as usual, you have to download Linux drivers from the support Web site.

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...
