Title: Lexmark E120 – The “disposable” personal printer
Keywords: laser printer, service maintenance approach and disassembly,

Abstract: The goal of the article to analyze and evaluate this modest personal printer. First of all, let’s clarify what I mean by “disposable”. Most of you, maybe, guessed the meaning of that word related to modern office equipment. Nowadays, every manufacturer of such equipment seeks to reduce production prices and maximize profits. Logically, this leads to a change of construction and production methods, especially in low segment personal printers. Gone are the days when a printer was built to last forever, like the famous Hewlett Packard II and III series. Today everything is made of plastic and clips. The printers are assembled by robots and, therefore, are sometimes very difficult to disassemble with hands. Also many parts are designed by CAD systems, and the safety coefficients of the materials are calculated on the edge of structural integrity. In other words, modern printers are very fragile. One more aspect is the cost of service repairs and maintenance.
