Hands-on Review of the Lexmark Interact
by Mark R
Previously, on Coolest Gadgets, we covered the Lexmark’s new line of all-in-one printers. I had a chance to work with one of these new eight printers, the Interact S605.
The Interact has a 4 x 3 touchscreen on the front, and is really easy to set up. It practically held my hand through the set up of the cartridges and papers. I did have some trouble with part of the set up, but Lexmark’s technical support really helped me out.
The reason why the Interact S605 is an all-in-one printer is because a computer is not required for certain print jobs. For example, if you have an SD card or thumb drive, you can just plug it in, and print out your photos or other documents.
The printer is quite fast as it can do 33 pages in black ink in one minute. As for 4 x 6 photos, they are pretty quick at 24 seconds each. The ink for the printer is very affordable as the ink is cheaper than most. There is an “Eco-Mode” for automatic double-sided printing for saving two types of green (money and the Earth, for those who don’t get that). The printer is also wireless, covered by WiFi n for three times the coverage and faster transfer speeds.
The Lexmark Interact S605 is available now on the Lexmark site for about $199.
