In 2006 Lexmark introduced the X642. It offers several modes that are functional from the start including copying, printing, scanning, and faxing. The Lexmark X642 prints rapidly; multiple copies are output at a rate of 45 pages-per-minute. With a robust monthly duty cycle of 200,000 impressions, the X642 will be able to keep up with the flow of busy document traffic.
Buyers Laboratory Inc awarded Lexmark the Pick of the Year award for the X642. It took the category for Outstanding Mid-Size Workgroup Desktop Monochrome Multifunctional Printer. It proved to have strong multitasking skills and high-quality output. During the 100,000-impression rigorous testing, the Lexmark X642 did not have a single misfeed or service call.
Ease of use is remarkable; operation is simple even for the non-technical user. Navigating the touch-screen is a snap. The Lexmark X642 offers direct printing from a USB flash drive that is accessible from the front panel. Multiple toner yields are available for the X642, including the extra-high yield option that will project approximately 32,000 pages at 5 percent coverage available in the Precision compatible brand.
