Summary: Let me first preface my review. I am looking specifically at what it can do and how well it does it in relation to it's competitors. My experience with printers is extensive. I research printer's capabilities before homing in on the one that I want and need. I own 5, purchase a new one for improved capabilities and quality for different custom marketing pieces.
Solid and dependable as an office printer, more than good enough for occasional flourishes

Summary: I work from home, and I'm often emailed large pdfs (200-300 pages) of a mixture of photographs and text which I then have to print off to take to clients. I bought this printer about three years ago, and have printed a couple of hundred pages a week since. It has never gone wrong, never messed me about, and never needed any parts replacing. I haven't kept an eye on toner costs, but that very fact suggests that it's not unreasonable.
Summary: Fast printing printer. It has very good quality print. Only negatives for me are that I do prefer a larger paper tray and also the printer is fairly large (Looks like made for commercial use). But apart from that it is very easy to install and use, also very easy to change ink cartridges.
Summary: The C540n is a heavy lump but neat and compact for what it is. I spent the best part of a day printing and comparing a test sheet of photos and graphics previously used for a brochure, which I then compared to the screen and the finished (hi quality) brochure. I also noted the print times for each.
Summary: Good output but I needed to install two Win XP drivers for this printer: the regular one (PCL5) and the Postscript 3 (PS3) one. The latter is needed in order to print out PDF documents at a reasonable speed. I downloaded the drivers from the lexmark uk website. I'm worried about the cost of toner in the future though.
Summary: I purchased this to replace an aging Lexmark SC1275 Color Laser. It arrived very quickly, in fact the next day and was well packaged. Took 5 Minutes to unpack and remove travelling restraints. Took even less time to install drivers on multiple operating systems. Print quality is excellent and is very quick. Toner is reasonably priced. I have looked at other reviews of this printer and can add the following.
Summary: 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.
Summary: Das Druckbild ist sehr gut auch die Geschwindigkeit ist gut. Mittlerweile gibt es kompatible Druckerpatronen im Netz und zwar für 31,- € schwarz für 2500 Seiten und Farbe für 34,50 € für 2000 Seiten und das ist sehr günstig.
