Lexmark International has introduced the Lexmark C500n colour laser printer especially for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
The printer and document management company says that the device is well suited to SMBs looking for a versatile, reliable printer that delivers high-quality documents quickly and affordably. With speeds of up to 31 pages per minute (ppm) in monochrome and 8ppm in colour and an estimated street price of £205, the C500n is seen by Lexmark as serving as the primary printing device for customers who require colour but also print large volumes of black and white documents: the typical SMB.
The Lexmark C500n also comes standard with networking so the printer can easily be shared by several users in a small workgroup to further reduce costs.
"When it comes to value, the Lexmark C500n is a clear standout," said Paul Rooke, Lexmark executive vice president and president of its printing solutions and services division. "SMB customers are asking for ways to print professional, high-quality colour documents in house and the Lexmark C500n delivers at an exceptional price."
Lexmark claims that the C500n gives SMBs the ability to precisely manage and adapt the colour output to meet their personal preferences with independent colour density control. It also features 1,200 x 600 dots per inch enhanced quality for printing colour photos and graphics. The Lexmark C500n features a host-based driver to deliver output and is backed by Lexmark's onsite repair warranty.
