However these high figures alone don’t automatically qualify this as a printer ‘Photography buffs’ will want to own. Print quality Our print samples varied considerably. They are also not cheap, costing around 22 for the black and 25 for the colour and they also don’t offer a very large capacity. The high quality mode produced a shadowed effect, making it far worse than normal mode. Those with more confidence in setting up and configuring inkjet printers would be far better off looking at offerings from Canon and Epson.

Lexmark Z65n Inkjet Printer Review

The Z65n was unveiled with a press release that included such bold statements as ‘Photography buffs will appreciate the superb detail and vivid colour’. Producing the best results so far, skin details showed up very clearly producing an average photo-realistic print. Comparing the same print from the Z65n and the Canon S, the Z65n ink drops are harder to spot. Combined with the high dpi printing this means they won’t last long and the printer will be more expensive than average to run.

Nikon D Review 3 Nov The footprint of the Lexmark is reasonably compact and the paper trays and holders fold up well.


The same print with Canon Photo Paper pro produced vibrant colours and a higher level of contrast. The printer driver uses the same system as other Lexmark printers we’ve seen and it is sensibly laid out. In designing this printer Lexmark have looked beyond print quality issues and paid attention to other features users could benefit from. Yet a disturbing feature of the Z65n was the amount of detail being lost in the red area of the boys clothing shown above.

Their Accu-feed technology aims to keep the paper print area parallel to the edge of z65h sheet and reduce the chances of jamming.

The automatic head-alignment performed well, with there being no evidence of the banding commonly seen with mis-aligned heads. Normal text printing was reasonably fast but things from then on got worse, with a very slow best quality text mode performance. USB, power and network connections are lexmarkk at the rear. The print status window shows information on the remaining ink and can have its appearance changed through skins.

Testing this for the first time I have to admit I was impressed. Verdict The Z65n has features that will be useful to those starting out in inkjet printing. Using some ICI satin paper our standard test print showed the Z65 to be capable of producing fine details well but also exhibited poor levels of colour saturation with the print appearing dull.

However despite Lexmarks claims to the contrary, I do not feel this is a printer suitable for ‘Photography buffs’.
