This is exactly the same printer as the Z32, but it is delivered with only the colour cartridge, so that the user does expensive CMY printing when he does not buy a black cartridge. The manual and the Windows drivers CD is the same for both printers.

Prints with the lxm3200 driver in all resolutions, but only in bidirectional mode, colours off (I think it is a Ghostscript problem), 300 dpi too light, 600 too dark, 1200 flooded with ink.

The Z22 works excellently with the proprietary driver which Lexmark has published for the Z32. See also this posting on our Lexmark forum:

    I have been able to successfully print on the Z22 using the drivers
    provided by lexmark for the Z32.  You can find them on their website (i
    think www.lexmrk.com)
    
The drivers issued by Lexmark do not contain any CUPS or PDQ configuration file, so use them either with LPD or with my Lexmark Foomatic Kit. Download it, uncompress it, and follow the instructions of its README file. Due to having access to all options of the driver it leads even to a better printout quality than the Lexmark driver with its original configuration software.

Consumables/Refills: color + black or color + photo ink cartridge
