Customer Questions & Answers

Can't find the answer you're looking for? Our printer experts are here to help! Ask a Question
  • I want to start using the printer to print transfer material for t-shirts. Will the printer be able to handle this without getting too hot for the media to peel on the inside?

    Please call our customer services team on 0845 130 1992 and they can direct you through to Lexmark Technical Support as there is more than one thing that can determine whether this will work on this machine or not. They would need to identify what is being printed, the temperature that the Lexmark X544 colour multifunction printer fuses at and also what kind of media you are using.

  • I have spare stock for this printer, but buying the CX510 will these cartridges work in the CX510

    Unfortunately the toner cartridges for the X544N are not compatible with the CX510 or any other current printer in the Lexmark range. The toner for the CX510 series are much more economical so you will make savings going forward; please follow the below link for details and current prices...

    too expensive to repair

    Lexmark x544 : I had a problem with the paper sensor that picks up the paper from the paper tray . I reported the problem to technical support but because it was out of warranty they offered an engineers visit at a cost of £ 320 which is similar if not more than the cost of a brand new printer . I'd expect the cost of repair to be reasonable especially if the item was purchased at a high price .

    Excellent service

    My third purchase and second Laser Printer purchase from Prinerland. Once again I found the service, excellent. I E-mailed a question regarding a printer, received a call back in under 1 hour and was offered my preferred printer at a discounted price and given free next day delivery. Thats good service in my book!

    There are so many features on this printer you seem to find a new one everyday. The quality is more than good enough for our office needs

    Excellent all in one

    This gives me all the features i need for my busy office and it is really good print quality. I liked the fact the toners were full when shipped too rather than a small introduction set.

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.
