Lexmark 2490 Printer Review

Expert review of the Lexmark 2490 printer 08 February 2013

Our Verdict:

The Lexmark 2490 printer is a suitable choice for a personal printing device that offers decent speed rates and good quality. It is a 24-pin monochrome unit that produces a maximum black and white resolution of up to 360x360 dpi. The Lexmark 2490 mono dot-matrix printer is equipped for low to mid-volume printing and it offers versatility, with two connective interface options, including a USB and a parallel port. The black and white Lexmark 2490 forms printer supports different media types, though it is limited to monochrome printing and it does not offer any other multifunction capabilities.

Design

The Lexmark 2490 forms printer measures only 19.3x11.4x7.7 inches. This dot-matrix printer is designed for personal use, as it only offers single-user connective interfaces via USB and parallel ports. Its print engine produces resolutions up to 360x360 dpi, and it has three different print modes and several greyscales to choose from. The Lexmark 2490 24-pin dot-matrix printer is suitable for basic everyday printing, as its only offers 80 KB of installed memory.

Advantages

The best selling point of the Lexmark forms printer 2490 is its simple design. It has basic features for those who need and want a machine that does not require sophisticated controls to work. The 2490 dot-matrix machine prints at decent speeds of up to 274 characters per second in draft mode, and as fast as 409 characters per second at maximum speed. High capacity Lexmark 2490 ink ribbons ensure that this machine is very cheap to operate.

Disadvantages

However, the Lexmark 2490 matrix printer can only print in black and white and it does not offer multiple functions. Nevertheless, the 2490 is a very economical Lexmark printer to invest in, with one ribbon able to print as many as 4 million characters.
