    Good Printer - Expensive running costs

    Hi The printer has some great features Duplex / USB or RJ45, Colour, reasonably fast to print. The issues i have with it is the running costs for the toners are VERY expensive... so you get a fully feature laser printer up front and a very cheap price, but the running costs are subsequently high. I use it at home but it would be fine in a small office of 20 people also. Rgds Steve ( IT Guy )

    Pleased with the printer but somewhat concerned over the speed at which new consumables are required. More frequent than previous epson printer.

    A good printer

    This printer is very good for the money. It comes with a full set of toners which makes it very good value for money straight away. The printer is quite small and features some excellent things like duplex printing. The overall printing speeds are good, however first page out when printing a photo is a little slow. Nonetheless the colours are worth waiting for. The printer is very quick when printing words and items that do not require a lot of processing. Beats my old dell printer by miles. Would highly recommend!!!

    Works well

    The printer works well. Print quality good. A bit noisy when it's agitating the toner. Documentation is a bit sketchy. Good value for money.

    Lexmark c543dn

    This printer produces superb quality prints and double sided too. Easy to set up and use with a Mac Pro as a networked printer. Reasonably quiet in a small office and pretty fast too. Downsides? The paper tray is flush with the bottom of the machine which has no feet, so not the easiest to open on a desk top. Toner cartridges are expensive and there doesn't seem to be any own brand alternatives

    Printer - Excellent

    Excellent value for money but expensive to buy the cartridges alone. Good service from Printerland - the printer was lost in transit and took 2-3 days to arrive instead of next day delivery but staff kept me informed of progress each day.

    Laser printer

    This is the 4th Lexmark 543dn I have purchased over the last two years. I have tried two other leading makes but always come back to Lexmark for reliability. There are a number of reasons for this, network ready, double sided printing, cartridges compared with most other laser printers are a reasonable price ( and for every 10 you return to Lexmark you get a FREE one of your choice)for a budget printer the quality is very good for printing things such as leafets, not so good for photos,ideal for a small office with limited space and finaly a very competitive price from Printerland
