Lexmark 2580 Printer Review

Expert review of the Lexmark 2580 printer

Our Verdict:
star
star-filled

The Lexmark 2580 is a compact and reliable forms printer ideal for offices in need of a dedicated printer for printing narrow 6 part forms. The device is very compact at 7.7x19.4x11.4 inches, ideal for sharing a desktop with a basic computer setup. It is equipped with energy saving features and uses a front tractor feeder, which allows for efficient paper handling. The Lexmark 2580 black and white dot-matrix printer is a versatile device that is compatible with various Windows and Linux operating systems, and it connects via USB and parallel interface, for convenient installation. However, the 2580 printer is a task-specific unit, useful only for forms printing.

Design

The Lexmark forms printer 2580 is compact and basic. It is also portable, weighing only 17.6 pounds. It uses 9-pin dot matrix print technology, which produces maximum resolutions up to 240x144 dpi. The Lexmark 2580 dot-matrix printer has a 512 KB internal memory, which is large enough for large print demands. It has an automatic sheet feeder, which supports different kinds of multi-part continuous forms, up to 8 inches in width.

Advantages

Print speed is an advantage for the Lexmark 2580 forms printer. It boasts up to 304 characters per second using draft speed and up to 510 characters per second using fast draft. Near letter quality mode is slower at 76 cps. Good print quality is another selling point, as well as its energy saving features and small design. Ribbon cartridges for the Lexmark 2580 printer are very affordable, in particular, the high capacity Lexmark 3070169 black ink ribbon.

Disadvantages

However, the 9-pin Lexmark 2580 dot-matrix printer can only be used for task-specific print jobs, which means users require an additional printer for other print requirements.
