Lexmark Interact S605

 

The Lexmark Interact S605 color inkjet multifunction printer avoids being just another $200 (as of May 22, 2010) printer/scanner/copier by including a 4.3-inch color LCD touchscreen for its control panel (think iPod Touch or iPhone). Unfortunately,...

Automatic duplexing ; Touchscreen controls

Washed-out copies ; Pricey inks

This machine has a few nice features, but its expensive inks make it a dicey deal for small or home offices.

Lexmark Interact S605 review

 

Even if we're not fully convinced that touch screens belong on printers, the Lexmark Interact S605 is the most convincing printer we've tested to include a functional, easy-to-use interactive LCD. Home users and small businesses will also appreciate...

Rapid print output; easy wireless setup; user-friendly touch-screen LCD with convenient "SmartSolution" shortcuts; includes autoduplexer.

Photo quality needs improvement.

The Lexmark Interact S605 multifunction device prints, scans, copies, and connects wirelessly with a streamlined user experience facilitated by an easy-to-use touch screen and customizable widgets called "SmartSolutions." Built for small businesses and...

Lexmark Interact S605

 

The S605 can print, copy, and scan—you can scan to your PC, to a memory device, or to e-mail; it will open your e-mail client and attach the scan to a message. It can print from Lexmark's SmartSolutions Web apps, a memory card, or a USB key.

Prints from and scans to multiple sources. Color touch screen. SmartSolutions Web apps. Fast photo printing

Sub-par photo quality. No fax. No Ethernet connectivity

The Lexmark Interact S605 is a light-duty home-office MFP with a gorgeous touch screen and the ability to print using SmartSolutions Web apps.

Review: Lexmark Interact S605 multifunction printer

 

The Lexmark Interact S605 multifunction printer has a few nice features, but its expensive inks make it a dicey deal for small or home offices.

The Interact S605’s 4.3-inch touchscreen control panel is its standout feature. Not only does the touchscreen look great, but Lexmark did an excellent job with its icons and menu structure, making it intuitive, easy to navigate, and well thought out....

Lexmark Interact S605 Review and Ratings

 

This all-in-one turns out documents and photos at respectable speeds and offers some fresh ideas, but don't mistake it for a photo printer. It's meant purely for small-business and personal-document printing.

Fast printing, scanning, and copying speeds ; Amazing LCD ; Quick setup and installation ; Innovative features

Lesser photo quality at larger print sizes ; Limited connectivity ; Limited Internet access

Lexmark Interact S605 inkjet multifunction

 

An inkjet multifunction printer with Lexmark's SmartSolutions widgets

802.11n Wi-Fi, touch-sensitive control panel, SmartSolutions Web-enabled widgets, prints documents from USB flash drives

Expensive consumables, no automatic document feeder, poor colour print quality

The Lexmark Interact S605 provides plenty of high-tech features like a touch-sensitive control panel, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Web-enabled widgets. However, expensive consumables and poor colour print quality dampen this printer’s appeal.
