Lexmark Platinum Pro905

 

The Lexmark Platinum Pro905 color inkjet multifunction printer is a well-equipped, competent small-office MFP with a twist: Users can access and view Web-based applications on its large, touchscreen LCD. Though few applications are currently available,...

Web-based apps are promising ; Plentiful paper handling ; Cheap ink

Expensive purchase price ; Middling speed ; Flesh tones look unnatural

Web capabilities and generous features make the Pro905 worth considering for a small office, although it's average in other respects.

Lexmark Platinum Pro 905 review: Lexmark Platinum Pro 905

 

Lexmark Platinum Pro 905

Fast print speeds; two separate paper trays; easy wireless setup; comprehensive driver features; foolproof Smart Solutions widgets.

No Bluetooth support; expensive; auto-document feeder not adjustable.

The Lexmark Platinum Pro 905 is a fully capable all-in-one business device, but its touch screen might throw a wrench in your workflow. The Smart Solutions widgets add virtual customization to the control panel, but we wish Lexmark had retained a few...

Lexmark Platinum Pro905

 

One of the things that most impressed me—in both senses of the word—when I unpacked the Lexmark Platinum Pro905 ($399.99 direct) multifunction printer (MFP) was a packet of support information with a hard-to-miss, letter-size page featuring a toll-free...

Fast photos. Prints on both sides of a page. Automatic document feeder. Works as standalone e-mail sender

Slow (for the price) for business applications. Several features don't work quite they way they should

Aimed primarily at a busy micro or home office, the Lexmark Platinum Pro905 is packed with office-centric features plus the ability to download mini-apps from the Web.

Review: Lexmark Platinum Pro905 multifunction printer

 

The Lexmark Platinum Pro905 color inkjet multifunction printer is a well-equipped, competent small-office multifuntion printer.

The Web capability is just one aspect of what Lexmark calls SmartSolutions, namely the ability to program a button on the device's 4.3-inch display for walk-up, one-touch execution of a sequence of actions (such as saving scanned PDFs to a specific...

Lexmark Platinum Pro 905- Attractive Looking But A Bit Expensive

 

The touch screen technology for printers is here and everyone is jumping the bandwagon. The latest manufacturer to do so is Lexmark and they have done it in style. There is not a single button on the face of the printer except the power button and rest...

Easy to set up through wireless interface, downloadable “SmartSolutions”, fast speeds for printing

No Bluetooth, very expensive

Lack of buttons, all touch screen interface make the Lexmark Platinum Pro 905 a super sexy device but we doubt if this is needed when it comes to office printers. What you need is low cost, high out put and low running cost. Lexmark does deliver well...

Review Of Lexmark Platinum Pro 905 Printer

 

The Pro 905 performs very fast. Rather its one amongst the fastest which should actually be the fastest for a price of $ 400. But it just happens to be the runner up to HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless which peroforms at twice the speed of the Pro 905....

Impressive printer speed ; Two independent paper trays ; Convenient wireless setup ; All-inclusive diver features ; Fail-safe Smart Solutions Widgets

Bluetooth Support Absent ; Pricey at $ 341.99- $ 399.99 ; Non-adjustable auto document feeder

The separate paper trays which can accommodate different types of paper, an easy to set up wireless system and a multi-functional driver with a foolproof Smart Widgets application are the points on which you can vouch this computer.

Lexmark Platinum Pro905 inkjet multifunction

 

An inkjet multifunction with Internet-based widgets and a large paper tray

Automatic duplexer, 300-sheet paper capacity, Internet-based widgets

Expensive initial outlay, poor print quality, slow print speeds, some SmartSolutions widgets aren't Mac compatible

With two paper trays, double-sided printing and Lexmark's SmartSolutions platform, the Platinum Pro905 is a good choice for businesses that print a lot of documents, but it is expensive.

Lexmark Platinum Pro905 review

 

Lexmark's Platinum Pro905 is wince-inducingly expensive, but has lots of features including a 4.3in touchscreen, a fax and a memory card reader.

Slow colour print speeds together with an extremely high price cripple this feature-packed MFP.
