I was looking for an all in one color laser printer/fax/scanner for a new business and this machine easily won the quality/value for the money contest. It renders beautiful color prints and crisp black typeface. This is NOT a photo printer, it is a business printer, and that is how I am judging it. It does everything I could want and it does it fast. It prints and faxes without a hitch, but gets a "4" for ease of use because the Lexmark software is clumsy and non-intuitive and requires multiple steps to get scans from the machine to my computer, although once you figure it out, it is very fast and the quality of the PDFs of scanned documents is good. Also, the updated software and drivers on the Lexmark website are numerous and there is no explanations provided for all the multiple kinds of drivers you can install and what they do. I'm not a printer expert and a little guidance would be helpful. Great quality printer/scanner/fax. If the scanning software were better it would be a grand slam.

I bought this printer about 6 months ago for my small business. I'm a realtor and about 90% of what I do is black and white printing & copies, with a little scanning and faxing. The color is good and can be adjusted to make the images look fantastic on the right paper (I use 28lb color copy paper). Let me give you a few of the problems that I've had so far: It's really slow when printing large files in full color. I print a 2mb flyer and it can take 2 or 3 minutes for it to print. Annoying but I can live with it. You can use the tray to print envelopes. You have to feed them manually one at a time and the roller is too hot so unless you put a sheet between the glue and the lip the envelope will hot seal itself. Don't happen with HP but the toner is 25 to 50 % more The scanning software is pretty bad. if you want to create in a readable PDF be prepared for 2mb per page. But you can scan to word docs and create something reasonable. And now I just found the piece de resistance - the reason you should never own one of these. I recently ran out of yellow toner and now the machine will not work at all until its replaced. Remember I do most of my work in black and white so I was thinking I would just continue to do so until my toner arrived but no. Nothing will work with this machine until I replace that toner. No black and white printing, no coping, no scanning and no faxing. I called tech support and very politely they told me that unless the machine was in 100% working order it would not work. If you're like me, a business owner who need things like this to just working and can't afford to keep an inventory of toner in the backroom. I would pass on this machine.

Excellent Print Quality but hard to configure

by A customer on 9/7/2010

The multifunction printer was easy to physically setup and prints quickly and well. It is a workhorse. I wanted to be able to print at 600dpi to save ink as well as 4800cq for final versions. Unfortunately, that was very difficult to configure and required me to chat with tech support twice. Scanning and copying were easy and straight forward. Setting up faxing for a regular phone line was easy, but I haven't figured out how to do it for fax over ip yet. The description made me think it was wireless enabled, but the x544dn is not. I should have ordered the x544dw to get the wireless option. If you feed paper through twice, it jams. Overall, a great printer/copier/scanner for the price, but difficult to configure. Read More
