Lexmark Interact S605 All-in-One Printer Review

Introduction

Today’s world of printers is a far cry from the days of the first dot-matrix printers that only printed black ink on special pin-fed continuous paper. Today’s All-in-One printers can print, copy and scan in color. And the newest ones are also promising wireless printing, improved ink handling, and Internet connectivity. We decided to look at the Lexmark Interact S605 All-in-One printer to see if these new features are worthwhile additions or insignificant elements.

This year Lexmark has introduced two distinct lines in its All-in-One printers: the Professional Series (Platinum, Prestige, Prevail, and Prospect) and the Home Office Series (Interact, Intuition, Interpret, and Impact). Lexmark made life a little easier by using the same ink cartridges across this entire new lineup. Each has a different set of features and a different price point, but each uses the same ink cartridges.

We reviewed the Lexmark Interact, which is Lexmark’s USD 199 home office printer.  The Lexmark Interact S605 comes in a large Lexmark box, as shown in Figure 1.

Inside the box (Figure 2) you will find the printer protected by tape and wrappings. You will also find the power cable, a USB cable, a cleaning cloth for the touch screen, a Quick Reference Guide, a Network Getting Started Guide, and the Lexmark software, as shown in Figure 3.

We were stymied when we saw no ink cartridges in the package. We found a little later that the four ink cartridges and the print head we actually packed inside the printer.

At 7” (17.8 cm) x 20.24” (51.4 cm) x 14.09” (35.8 cm) and 16.5 lb (7.5 kg), the printer itself is about the same size as others in this category. As you can see in Figure 4, the printer sides are slightly angled which gives it a little style. While the touch screen is glossy, the rest of the printer is matt black. The top is trimmed in silver and there is a very small mat diamond pattern on the top which helps to prevent fingerprints.
