Lexmark MX521ade in More Detail

Fast, economical, multifunctional. The Lexmark MX521ade has been engineered with the demands of the busy workgroup in mind. Experience print output speeds up to 44ppm with a first print out as fast as 6 seconds for maximised productivity. Award-winning full spectrum security protects your sensitive documents across the network and utilises a range of embedded features to defend against attacks.

Powerful productivity

Built around a powerful dual-core processor and fast RAM memory the MX521ade makes short work of scanning, copying, printing and faxing. Designed to handle even the most complex and graphic rich file this printer combines speed and business print quality to deliver the prints you need when you need them.


Robust and reliable, this printer is built around a durable steel frame that allows it to operate in the most demanding conditions. Long life imaging components and replacement cartridges with yields up to 25,000 pages* allow you to work with fewer interventions.

Intuitive operation

Swipe the 4.3-inch touchscreen with a range of intuitive movements and unlock total control of your printer. Smooth and familiar operation allows you to get more done saving time and money.


The accurate scanner is capable of duplex scan speeds of up to 20spm with single-sided mono copy speeds of up to 44cpm. MX520 series printers use innovative font outlining technology for business quality print where grey text is as crisp and clear as mono text for exceptional results.

A sustainable choice

Every watt counts for your budget, so take advantage of energy management features that reduce power consumption to just 0.1W in hibernation mode. Lower fusing temperatures and automatic power management that learns from your workload drive down costs and makes your printer Energy Star 2.0 compliant. Cut paper use at a stroke with automatic duplex printing benefiting your budget and the planet.
