Key Features

  • Review Price: £299.99

Lexmark’s new range of all-in-ones was launched under a year ago, yet we’re already seeing replacement models coming along. The Pinnacle Pro901 is due to replace the Prestige Pro805, one down from the top of the Professional range, and includes fax in its features set, as well as print, copy and scan.


A heavily curved silver and black case gives the machine a very purposeful appearance. A horizontal feed tray for the Automatic Document feeder (ADF) sets it off well and the completely vertical front face is punctuated by a memory card slot for SD, MemoryStick and xD cards, a PictBridge socket and an indicator for the Wi-Fi connection, which comes as standard.


The most obvious feature of the machine, however, is its 4.3in, wide-aspect touchscreen, which takes on all its control functions. The panel is reasonably responsive, though you sometimes have to press quite hard to get a reaction. The bitmapped panel is bordered on either side by single-function touch buttons, for things like job start and cancel.


Up to 150 sheets of paper can be loaded into the single tray at the front of the machine, and each page makes a 180-degree turn during printing before ending up on an extended paper support, which increases the overall footprint of the device quite a bit. A second tray can be fitted underneath, doubling the paper capacity and allowing for two types of paper to be loaded at once.


At the back are sockets for USB, Ethernet and phone line and an optional third-party handset. Wireless connection is also provided and a touch keyboard pops up on the display to take a wireless passcode.


The four dye-based ink cartridges plug into the head carrier very easily, though the retaining clips at the back of the carrier, which click each cartridge into place, could be more positive.


Drivers for Windows and OS X are provided, along with applications for basic document handling and OCR. Linux is also catered for via a downloadable driver.


The SmartSolutions system offers an increasing range of applets, which can be downloaded to the Pinnacle and other Pro range all-in-ones. It’s a convoluted process though, where you have to create an account and select your applets from a computer and then sync with the printer to download them. It would be much easier if the whole thing could be handled from the printer’s touchscreen.
