HIGH:

True photo-quality printouts are the domain of the Epson Stylus Photo 1270 inkjet printer. The
1,440 x 720 dpi resolution is helped out tremendously by the Epson's tiny ink droplet size. This is a good printer if you need to generate professional-looking photo enlargements, brochures and graphics. Another great feature is the wide format. With special banner paper, the 1270 can turn out a 13-by-44-inch print. This is handy for large-size graphics work. Replacement black cartridges cost $24.95, while color replacements cost $30.

LOW:

The Lexmark Z11 Color Jetprinter is a budget printer with an impressive 1,200 x 1,200 dpi maximum resolution. Normal mode is 600 x 600 dpi. Print speeds are on the slow side at 4ppm in black and white and 2.5ppm in color. The parallel interface doesn't help the speed issue. You'll have to spend more for faster performance. Replacement printer cartridges cost $30 for black and $35 for color. For functionality and affordability in a low-demand office environment, it's hard to beat the high resolution capability of the Z11.
