What is Printer Ribbon? Printer ribbon has a wax-like texture that can be melted down and fused with paper in thermal imaging printers. In Dot-Matrix & impact printers, pressure is applied to specific areas of the ribbon in order to create the printed page. Printer Ribbon is often used in dot-matrix, thermal imaging & impact printers, as well as fax machines.

Lexmark Forms 2591 Review


Overview:

As the high resolution alternative to the Lexmark Forms 2580 dot matrix printer, the Lexmark Forms 2591 trades multiple form printing abilities for quality. This device uses a 24 pin impact setup as opposed to the 9 pin style seen in other models in the 2500 series. This results in much higher print resolution, but takes its form printing ability down by two to only four (one original and three copies).


Pros:

While 360 x 360 dots per inch is such a poor print quality even fax machines can produce higher resolution than it, 360 dpi is actually quite good for the very old dot matrix print technology that the Lexmark Forms 2591 relies on. This is made possible by the device’s 24 pin technology. Truth be told, however, dot matrix printers are not sought after for their print quality, but their multiple form printing abilities.

The Lexmark Forms 2591 can print up to 4 pages thick and carbon paper used in multiple layer printing can then be signed by customers, creating immediate signature copies as well, which is the primary use of this style of printing. However, receipt printing is not the only thing dot matrix printers are good for. These devices are also much more rugged than personal desktop or inkjet devices, making them perfect for placement in harsh work environments such as auto shops and shipping werehouses.

A networking version of the Lexmark Forms 2591 is available from the brand as well under the name Lexmark Forms 2591N. With network capabilities incorporated into the device, it would be much better suited for environments where host PCs need to print to the unit remotely. There is no wireless version of the 2591, as wireless hardware is a very uncommon feature in dot matrix printers.

Printing at a speed of 328 characters per second in draft mode, the Lexmark Forms 2591 is quite fast. The device can also be set to an even lower resolution called fast draft, allowing it to crank out up to 465 characters per second at 12 characters per inch. Even when the device is set to near letter quality, the unit breaks a hundred with a speed of 109 characters per second. Unfortunately, no true letter quality can be attained with this printer.

The Lexmark Forms 2591 is only equipped with 512 MBs of memory. While this may seem ridiculously low, as it would be for a laser or inkjet printer, this amount is enough to suffice for a dot matrix, which explains why there is no memory expansion option available for the device.


Cons:

It is cost and lack of versatility that make the Lexmark Forms 2591 unattractive to some buyers. The device’s hardware can be manipulated to some degree, but not nearly as much as some printers that have ten or twenty different hardware configurations, allowing for a seemingly endless supply of printing possibilities. The Lexmark Forms 2591 is compatible with a small number of special media types, but buyers with very special needs may need to look elsewhere.
