Excerpt: The Lexmark X342 multifunction monochrome laser printer is one of the company’s mid-range small business and home office units. For $399, consumers get all the basic tools of a typical multifunction printer in a mid-weight desktop unit that doesn’t take up too much space. The stylish charcoal-colored chassis with the silver control panel make for an attractive printer.
Conclusion: The E342n comes with a 2,500-page starter toner, and has reasonable running costs. Its higher specification makes it seem better value than the DCP-8060, but its higher ownership costs and slower, inferior prints and copies make the Brother DCP-8060 a better buy.
