    Lexmark X544XL

    We purchased this printer for our office around 2.5 years ago to replace a hard-wearing HP Colour Laserjet 2820 printer. The Lexmark has not lasted as long and has just been replaced. For light office printing it would be a good choice as it is reasonably priced and has nice quality print and all the features are easy to operate. The downsides are the cost of all the individual cartridges and not really up to too much hard work. It regularly overheated in the summer months.

    Works well but glitches on Macs

    We only have macs in our office and the printer has a few glitches with macs and some features didn't work with the driver. E.g. reports there is ink in the printer when there clearly isn't. The OKI printer we have works nicely with a mac.

    Didn't want to rate this product until we have been using it for a while. We have had it 2 months now and not a single problem to report. Have had to change the toners once and they are so simple, swapped in a couple of seconds. Good printer, highly recommended.

    Radley Green Finance and Accounting Recruitment likes Printerland!!

    Radley Green ordered our Lexmark printer from Printerland and found the service to be polite, prompt and professional. They listened to our needs, suggested options that suited our requirments and we bought a model that offered all the functionality that we needed. What's more we received the product swiftly and got a healthy cash-back incentive which resulted in a purchase that offered great value for money. The team has always been speedy and when we did have a minor issue they put me on hold and transferred me directly to Lexmark. The consumables are competitively priced and Radley Green cannot fault the service or product that we have recieved and will definately be using Printerland moving forward. Thanks from the team at Radley Green Finance and Accounting Recruitment.

    Lexmark X544

    Overall very staisfied with our new printer and more importantly the service we recieved. We recieved sound advice, were directed to a product that suited our needs quickly, politely and professionally. The printer had reasonable consuable costs and offered a healthy cash back incentive which as a new business was particularly useful. The team were prompt and efficient and when we did have an issue we were put on hold and transferred directly by the team to Lexmark. Definately returning when the need arises.

X544dw Review
TrustedReviews says...

This is a good, colour laser multifunction, well up to the rigours of a busy small office or workgroup. We still haven't worked out why printer makers think colour printer owners will print fewer pages than mono printer customers and can therefore put smaller trays on their colour machines. Other than that and the slightly high colour page cost, this is a high-value, versatile printer.

Lexmark X544dw

Fully-fledged colour laser multifunction printers are still fairly thin on the ground, particularly those that claim a workgroup-level print speed of 23ppm. Lexmark’s X544dw is and does and has an unconventional design, too.

Coloured dark grey and off-white, it looks business-like and is reasonably compact, other than the output tray, which sits unusually at the back of the machine and adds to its depth. The 50-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is neat and when you lift the scanner cover an illuminated arrow shows you which corner to line up your original to; a nice touch.

The control panel is logically laid out with illuminated mode buttons for copy, scan and fax at the left-hand end, controls for content type and for copy parameters next and then the main operation controls, clustered around a 2-line by 16-character, backlit LCD display. Further right again are fax options, a number pad and finally, at the extreme right, a USB/PictBridge socket.

The main paper tray holds 250 sheets and has a single-sheet feed fitted right at desk level. This seems a bit meagre on a machine intended for workgroup use and although you can add an optional 550-sheet tray, which also incorporates a 100-sheet multipurpose feed, it would be good to have 500-sheet capacity from the off.

At the back are sockets for USB and Ethernet, but the X544dw also offers a wireless connection. To set this up, you need to temporarily connect the machine via USB, to transfer details of your wireless network and any security passcodes.

Unusually, the four toner cartridges clip in at the side of the machine, once you've released and raised up the scanner section from the right. Renewing these consumables is very straightforward and doing the same for the waste bottle and drums should only need to happen every 18,000 and 30,000 pages, respectively.

As is usual with Lexmark machines, particularly its office laser devices, there's plenty of support for different platforms. As well as Windows and OS X, drivers are available for various iterations of Linux, UNIX and Citrix. Windows users also get a copy of Presto! PageManager.

Lexmark claims 23ppm for this machine and our five-page text document completed in 24s, giving a real-world speed of 12.5ppm, only just over half the rated speed. However, on the longer, 20-page test, the speed climbed to 19.4ppm, which is really not far off the rating.

Duplex print is also reasonably quick, with the same 20-page document printed on 10 pages in 1min 51secs, a speed of 10.8 sides per minute. Our five-page black text and colour graphics test took 26s, hardly any longer than the straight black document, so there's little time penalty for printing in colour.


This is a good, colour laser multifunction, well up to the rigours of a busy small office or workgroup. We still haven't worked out why printer makers think colour printer owners will print fewer pages than mono printer customers and can therefore put smaller trays on their colour machines. Other than that and the slightly high colour page cost, this is a high-value, versatile printer.
