Home Office Powerhouse1/9/2011
After devouring dozens of reviews on the Web about color laser printers, I decided on the Lexmark C543dn. It's clearly a home office powerhouse! The ease of installation on my wired network and the speed at which very complex pages are printed - even from the power saver mode - make this a superior buy. Some may find it a bit noisy, but that's a minor issue compared to the color, speed, and small footprint. Especially impressive are the 1200 X 1200 dpi printing and duplexing capabilities - features no other printer in its class offer. My laptop loaded with Windows 7 Pro and Office 2010 Pro accepted it as a full partner without a hitch as well as my desktop running XP and Offce 2007. Altogether, this machine offers value well beyond its pricepoint.
BLUF: I’m really happy with this printer, although it has some warts. PRO: Excellent, excellent black print quality. Very good color print quality. Completely acceptable color photo quality, although inkjet on premium paper is better. Excellent print speed once it gets going. Duplexer is really handy. Reasonably quiet. Physical footprint is smaller than many other color lasers I have seen. Includes both USB and network (Ethernet 10/100) ports. All in all, this printer seems like the best overall bargain for print quality, up-front cost and long-term cost. CON: Needs a nearby nuclear reactor to power it. No joke: the lights in the room get noticeably dimmer while this thing is printing. Long warm-up time; once it goes on power-saver standby, it takes a couple of minutes before it's ready to print again. Paper handling options are a bit short. No straight-through printing path for stiffer papers. Duplexer works but it seems like printing multiple copies of the same 2-sided document does not – the first copy comes out fine but subsequent copies are not duplexed. Minor ding: this printer will not accept Lexmark's ultra-high capacity toner cartridges, which would lower the overall cost of using it significantly. OTHER: Somewhat finicky to set up. There are tons of shipping spacers that have to be removed before use. Fortunately they're all bright red, so it's hard to miss one. You'll need a table or empty desk to use when removing the shipping spacers -- you need access to three different sides of the thing simultaneously. The network setup is somewhat of a pain since it does not default to DHCP. You have to turn on the DHCP using the front panel; afterwards the built-in web setup interface is complete & easy to use.
