    Lexmark 544dw

    Very Pleased... Took 2 of us to lift in place but set up with ease after that. Wireless function works fine as well which was a must for our office. Print quality so far looks great, prints quick too. Thanks

    My Experience

    The on board wireless system simply does not work, and is of such low power it renders the alleged capability completely useless. The software implementation makes windows 95 look very modern and stable. The addition of an email address does not work. The network capability does not work correctly. Why on earth can Lexmark not simply implement a DHCP network address strategy, for a home office this system works perfectly. When printing, the printer howls and groans with much squeaking and whirring. All in all a massive disappointment. Lexmark need to take a long hard look at what features can truly be implemented at this price point, less features that work please.The printer as is shall be returned as not fit for purpose.

    Great value multifunction colour laser

    Overall this is a great printer, with all the features you would need for home/small office. Printing/Scanning quality is great. I think having the wireless connectivity and USB/Pictbridge is an advantage for this printer at it's price point. The quality is quite surprising for a Lexmark, I was going to get a brother(w/o wireless or USB). It is very sturdy and there is no flimsy plastics (note: heavy). The setup was fine for me (BSC Computing student), setting up the wireless connectivity is quite cumbersome but not overly difficult. The printing/scanning was fine on default quality. When adjusting colours , print come out quite sharp and vivid. The only bad point was settup was setting up the wireless - if you're not great with computers. Can't comment on efficiency because only had a few days. But all youtube/website reviews cement the fact this is a great value printer!

    Excellent printer though wireless set-up did not work. Had to create printer port for cat5 Ethernet but then worked fine. USB worked fine. Not tried Fax or saw any set up instructions. Power saver very good, printing is quick and precise, good colour rendering of photos.

    Excellent printer

    I purchased a Lexmark X544DW Multifunction printer in April 2010, and have been very pleased with it performance and quality of output, so when I decided to add a second printer it could only be another Lexmark X544DW Multifunction printer.

    As a reasonably skilled user, this did not work out of the box and there was a serious technical fault diagnosed by Lexmark tech. support. Printerland replaced with an alternative (Epson)that did work out of the box.

    Review of My Printer

    Excellent Customer & Delivery Services. This is my first and very good experience to buy a printer from Printerland.co.uk.

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.
