C792de is a top contender. The monochrome pages which have generally plain text and few simple grayscale graphics emerge at a fast rate of 22.7 pages per min on PC whereas on Mac, the rate is 19.4 pages per min. On PC, the snapshot-size photos printed on letter-size sheet of paper surfaces at a peppy rate of 4.2 pages per min and on glossy sheets 2.2 pages per min. The more compound bigger full-page photo comes out at decent speed 0.8ppm on Mac.
The machine produces prints with best quality. The 2400X600 dpi resolution photos at default settings look almost flawless, as in the case of text. You can hardly make out rough spots and have generally true colors. However sometimes they show bit orangey flesh tones and occasional over saturation in other regions. At the max resolution all the things look far better. The machine can handle finer graphics work, allow alone your daily pie charts and spot color.
Normally the printers which are tagged with high purchase price provide cheaper enduring toner costs in trade. This model wanders away from the trend, though not too remote. C792de ships with 8500-page black supply and 11,000-page yellow, cyan and magenta cartridges. The standard-size replacements endure up to 6000 pages. The black toner is tagged at $189 which translates to 3.1 cents per page and color cartridges are tagged at $286 each piece which leads to 4.8 cents per color per page. A 4-color page would cost about 17.4 cents. Coming to higher yields, their costs are way better. The 20,000-page black supply tagged at $298 comes to 1.5 cents per page and the same yield color cartridges tagged at $515 come to 2.6 cents per color per page. A page with all the four colors costs you 9.2 cents.
Lexmark’s this model is terrifying competitor among the workgroup printers, with features and performance in hand. The only moan is its middling ink costs; otherwise it is worth the money.
