5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 22 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lexmark C540N Network Colour Laser Printer (Electronics)
I bought this to replace an elderly HP 2050 colour Laser. The Lexmark is much better. The print quality is excellent, really crisp.
The printer was a bit of a pain to set up as you have to dismantle the whole thing to remove the packaging pieces - you've definitely got to read the instructions for this. Having said which it was easy to do - just a question of following the instructions. Once the packaging was removed installation was a doddle - everything happened automatically. It set itself up on the network totally automatically and discovered all its IP addresses etc. Windows 7 had all the drivers installed already, so our PCs found the printer and configured themselves automatically as well.
The LCD display panel is easy to use - much better than the old HP. There's also a built in web server that you can attach to from your browser that has all the printer status and error information a man could want.
It's very quick to start printing - even when you first power it on, or when it has fallen into 'sleep' mode to save power. It's also much quieter than the HP.
I know it's more expensive than some competitors but it looks really solid and well built - ready for some high volume usage. The comparison reviews in PC Pro also showed that the costs per page are lower than most others if you are printing lots of pages.
My only gripe is that the current price on Amazon is £[] less than I paid last week. Grrrr
