Lexmark introduces laser printer for SMB
Lexmark Canada Inc. introduced the Lexmark C500n colour laser printer for small and medium business (SMB) customers.
The printer offers speeds of up to 31 pages per minute (ppm) in monochrome and 8 ppm in colour. The Lexmark C500n also comes standard with networking so the printer can easily be shared by several users in a small workgroup to reduce costs.
The product gives users the ability to manage and adapt the colour output to meet their personal preferences with independent colour density control for black, cyan, magenta and yellow. It also features 1,200 x 600 dpi quality for printing colour photos and graphics.
The Lexmark C500n will be available in June through Lexmark channel partners and major office retailers.
Lexmark introduces scanner and laser printer bundles
Lexmark Canada Inc. introduced the Lexmark 4600 scanner and Lexmark X646ef laser printer bundle, catering to enterprise customers.
The Lexmark 4600 scanner allows users to add copy, scan, e-mail and fax functionalities to their current printers. The product has a legal-size flatbed scanner with single-pass, duplex scanning capabilities in colour and monochrome and comes standard with enterprise-level security features such as disk wiping, IPSec, SSL and encryption. It features the same colour e-Task interface that is on Lexmark’s laser multifunction printers (MFPs).
The Lexmark 4600 scanner can be purchased separately to work along with Lexmark’s T640 series of monochrome laser printers. This option allows customers who currently own networked T640 products to upgrade their existing printer fleet to multifunction devices. The scanner has an estimated street price of $2,949.
For users who are interested in purchasing a new MFP but also have extensive finishing requirements, Lexmark offers the new Lexmark X646ef and X646em laser printer bundles, which include the new 4600 scanner, a T644dtn laser printer, and finishing capabilities such as stapling and sorting or a five-bin mailbox at estimated street prices of $5,399 and $4,999 respectively.
The Lexmark X646ef and X646em feature a standard scan preview function to allow users to view a scanned document before it is processed. They also include a USB port to allow users to scan to or print PDFs and images from a USB flash storage device from the operating panel. The Lexmark X646ef and X646em feature a colour touchscreen interface and offer print speeds of up to 50 ppm.
The Lexmark 4600 scanner and Lexmark X646ef bundle will be available in June through Lexmark’s channel partners.
