Lexmark’s big selling-point for the Christmas season, 2007 will be Wi-Fi, a wireless connection for most of the ink-jet printers and all-in-ones in its new range. The Z1420 is the cheapest Wi-Fi printer in that range, and possibly the cheapest Wi-Fi printer in the UK [around $80 in the US].
..There’s no doubt it can be useful to have a printer which doesn’t need to be connected to a PC via a USB cable. If you already have a wireless network in your home or office, or if you’re contemplating getting one later on, the Z1420 is an inexpensive printer to buy and run. It’s also a very slow printer, particularly printing colour, and doesn’t give the best print quality you can get, even at this low entry price.
