The Lexmark P915 is a personal photo inkjet printer that can deliver sharp text results and detailed full-color images. Monochrome documents print at a rate of 22 pages per minute and color projects print at a maximum speed of 15 pages per minute. A maximum monthly duty cycle of 3,000 prints makes the P915 best used in a home or small office with light-duty needs.
The device can produce monochrome prints with a resolution of 2400x1200 dpi. Photos can print with a resolution of up to 4800x1200 dpi using color Lexmark P915 printer ink. One feature that may be especially appealing for home users is the PictBridge port and compatible camera slots that can print directly from media cards like Microdrive, Sony Memory Stick and SmartMedia card. Images can be previewed on the full-color display before printing. Users also have the option for borderless printing to produce lab-quality results.
The P915 is compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems. The unit has a maximum input capacity of 100 pages that can support paper like coated, glossy, photo and iron-on transfers. It accepts a range of sizes including 4x6 inch photo paper, A4, A5 and letter.
The device generally prints with 4 colors, but a separate photo cartridge adds two additional colors (light cyan and light magenta) that can be used when printing photos. While this is not required for photos, it can certainly improve color accuracy. The standard cyan, magenta, and yellow colors are combined into a single Lexmark P915 printer ink cartridge. High-capacity black supplies can yield up to 475 pages and large capacity color Lexmark P915 ink cartridges can print 450 sheets.
With the option for cost-effective high-capacity ink and dedicated slots for memory cards, the P915 is a desirable personal photo inkjet printer. The machine also has fast and lab-quality photo prints. The bonus of borderless printing and a high-quality photo print system make the P915 the ideal home photo printer.
