Printer Cheat Sheet + Lexmark Laser Printers that will step up your printing productivity

Printer Cheat Sheet + Lexmark Laser Printers that will step up your printing productivity:

Whether you are a small business or huge corporate company, printers are unarguably the most essential tech product you will need. Without them there will be no invoices, plans or paperwork (we wish *eyeroll*).

This blog aims to give you the run down on all the fancy and technical printer jargon for Lexmark so you can better choose the printer that suits you your needs.

You can forget about ink carts that can expire or leak, these laser printers only require toner to provide quality imaging and printing. Shop these printers while they have hundreds of dollars off!

Basic Printer Cheat Sheet:

You may notice what appears to be random letters at the end of printer model numbers and in product descriptions/titles – these are useful in determining the key functions the printer does! You may notice these letters in HP, Brother and Kyocera Printer titles as well.

  • MX: Mono Multifunction (Print/Scan/Copy/Fax)
  • A: Analog Fax (Lexmark)
  • D: Duplex (Double-Sided Printing)
  • N: Network
  • F: Fax
  • W: Wireless
  • MF: Multifunction
  • E: Electronic Display
  • Monochrome/Mono: Black and white printing
  • PPM: Pages it can print per minute
  • Yield: The number of pages your toner or ink cart is expected to be able to print

Ink cartridges contain liquid ink, which is great for bright colour imaging. Toner cartridges contain microscopic powder which is great for clear, sharp images and text. A toner is usually a combination of plastic resin and iron oxide.
