Summary: It started out really good. The printer worked fine but then I started getting a fuser error and found out every 60,000 pages you need to replace the fuser with a fuser kit. $330.75. Adding that on top of how much ink it goes through, this is an expensive way to print.
Excellent printer. For home use, Lexmark doesn't disappoint.

Summary: Excellent color graphics. The toner for this printer is a lot cheaper than most. Really like the quality. Speed is good too. Added extra memory so when printing a manual in PDF form, it can handle more pages.
Summary: 1) C54*** printers have non common cartridge. They can easily design that printers can use a same cartridge if the first three of model number of printers are same. However Lexmark intentionally changes a chip not to allow to use a cartridge from one printer to other printers. 2) The worst problem is as follows; even though lots of ink are still left, a warning sign shows up. They clearly confuse us and rip off money from us.
Summary: Printer works perfectly, no issues at all, teh shipper forgot to take out the toner before shipment so when it arrived it was a mess, but it was very easy to clean up. My wife is a school teacher and we tend to print a lot of items from home, the duplex is a necessity and because of the netwirking feature we can print from any computer in the house.
Summary: Excellent printer. Toner is expensive, although Lexmark has an exchange program for empty catridges. No quirky interface and simple to use. Duplex (C543dn) works good an not really any paper jams. It makes some noise on boot up, but while printing its quieter than some other laser printers. This machine is only used for some color print jobs.
Summary: Only drawback is the cost of toners but if you will only use moderately, this one is excellent. No distracting features, easy to read and understand display panel and straight out of the box setup. I have two, may buy others for our small office.
Summary: I have been using this printer for about 4-6 months now. My work purchased it for me. I HATE this thing and wish that I had my 8 year old Dell back! It regularly messes up and starts printing pages and pages of code. DO NOT hit print and walk away from this thing or you'll run through a ream of paper w/ code on it. It often takes 5+ minutes to process a document before it prints it. If you are trying to print out of an Adobe product, like InDesign, forget about it.
Summary: Founded Thomas Capital Management, LLC 14 years ago. My HP 8150i was $8,000 and a work horse. Color laser version was over $20,000. Now, at UNDER $400 bucks this workhorse does MORE than my other printers times 100.
