Lexmark is expanding its printer line-up with a new family of desktop laser printers aimed at business users, from the home office to the enterprise. The new line-up includes the Lexmark E232, E232t, E330, E332n and E332tn monochrome laser printers, all of which come with what Lexmark is billing as a sleek and compact design, aimed at making them physically and aesthetically suited for all environments. “This new family of printers continues Lexmark’s tradition of offering affordable and versatile products without sacrificing features and functionality,” said Abdulrahman Almoayed, Lexmark’s manager for Printing Solutions and Services division. “Whether a customer needs a desktop printer for a home business or a Fortune 500 corporation, Lexmark offers the product of choice. These new products are made to both address and anticipate various customer needs by delivering performance, reliability and upgradeable features at an affordable price.” The design on the new printers isn’t just meant to be attractive on the eye: Lexmark has included a number of practical features, such as an integrated paper drawer for reliable paper feeding and space consolidation, in addition to a simple, intuitive operating panel. The supplies are also designed to maximise customer ease of use, with a simple to install 2,500 or 6,000 page toner cartridge and a long-life photoconductor kit that, Lexmark claims, may never need to be replaced over the life of the printer. All of the printers in the range are also upgradeable, with options such as networking, a 550-sheet paper drawer and memory expansion available if a user’s needs should grow. For the personal home or office user, the Lexmark E232 and E232t printers offer speeds of up to 21 pages per minute (ppm), with time-to-first page of 8.5 seconds. The E232t includes a second 550-sheet tray to accommodate higher-volume printing. For more demanding users the E330 features speeds of up to 26ppm, a 200MHz processor and can have additional optional memory. The Lexmark E332n is designed for small workgroups featuring a space-saving internal Network adapter, while the E332tn includes a second 550-sheet drawer.
