The Lexmark Optra T614 is a great machine for mid to large offices looking for simple black-and-white printing only. With a frame of 16.5x20.2x15.9 inches, you will probably find this machine to be easy to fit no matter the amount of space your office has. It also weighs only 45 pounds, which is a little heavy, but not that bad compared to other similar machines on the market. The T614 has the ability to print up to 130,000 pages each month, and its Optra T614 toner cartridges can last about 25,000 pages before expiring and needing replaced. Thought multifunction printers are becoming more and more popular, you won't find many functions like that here—this printer prints and does so without the bells and whistles of other high-end machines.
Its speeds are pretty fast at 25 pages per minute, using its one needed Lexmark T614 toner cartridge filled with black printer toner. A wired technology machine, you will have to use either parallel or serial connections in order to get up and running. Resolutions of up to 1200x1200 dpi are feasible using the Optra T614 toner, and PostScript support comes standard upon purchase. Duplex printing can be added whenever the buyer wants, but it does not come standard like it does with many printers on the market.
Business cards, plain paper, transparencies, plain paper, vinyl, envelopes and labels are all supported by this unit with the toner from Lexmark
. A maximum media size of 8.5x14 inches is compatible, and up to 600 sheets can be stored in its multiple media trays. An automatic document feeder holds up to 500 sheets of paper at one time as well. Windows, Mac and IBM operating sytems all work well in conjunction with the printer, but operating systems like Linux, Unix and Solaris will need to look elsewhere.
