They cheat comsumers. Don't buy Lexmark printers

Miyamoto Musashi "Mike", Amazon
1 January 2014
  • 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.

Toner is a rip

Rick D., Newegg
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Maybe all the printers any more use page counters instead of letting the customer decide when the print quality is unacceptable, and it's time to replace the toner. I will never buy another Lexmark product. But sadly, I expect the next printer I buy will have the same issues. Sigh...
  • Pros: Well, it was cheap to buy. And it fit where I needed to put it.
  • Cons: Toner cartridges "run out" after very little use. Likely they have a chip that decides you have printed enough, or they constantly recharge the print assembly, using up valuable toner, just to make sure you "have the best possible print quality", which just borders on acceptable anyway. About eve...

Toner Hog

Robert R Cummins, Amazon
28 December 2012
  • Summary: I am retiring this printer after 3 years of service. Print quality is great; however, the toner costs are unbelievable. I have only printed 2199 total pages in 3 1/2 years--many in black & white. I have replaced each cartridge a minimum of three times will high yield versions each time.

BEST Lexmark Color Laser Printer is C543DN

SVS, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: If you are looking for a consistent laser printer with great image print quality this model C543DN is fantastic. Do not think however that all Lexmark printers are made equality as the C540 is the worst printer known to man (see my review on that) so if you want a Lexmark this is the model for you.

Lekmark C543dn

brad71, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • Summary: I did not get a chance to open this product and set it up for use until 2-20-2012 after ordering it on 11-7-2011 due to work and other obligations. The printer does not work and Amazon's return period is expired. Lexmark technical support says the imaging kit may be bad.

Good printer, but ridiculously expensive toner kills it

A. Tubesing, Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: This is a fairly good printer if you want to load the tray with plain paper and print from the tray, and nothing more complex than that. It prints reliably and with good results. The duplexing works great on regular paper. But... if you want to do anything unusual it's not the best.

Lexmark C543DN

SlartyUK "slartyuk", Amazon
9 September 2011
  • Summary: Hello Like many people I was fed up with the high costs of consumables and even after purchasing a Kodak ESP 9 last year was still not impressed, the Kodak's ink might be cheap but they were very low volume. So I decided to take the plunge into Colour LaserJet's.

Not recommended, good print quality, but poor toner management

Bradley S., Newegg
25 January 2011
  • Pros: Great print quality, nothing to complain about there.
  • Cons: For some reason, Lexmark decided to program the printer to stop printing after it thought one cartridge was low. The print quality was still fine, no problems. Now I have a very expensive and heavy paperweight as I refuse to support a company who would have these wasteful and expensive practices ...

great printer, criminal company

Cliff M., Newegg
6 December 2010
  • Summary: Lexmark's practices amount to extortion and theft, in my mind: extortion because they use your initial investment to lock you into an expensive forced monopoly when alternatives are technically viable; and theft because they expire their cartridges when they aren't even empty.
  • Pros: The print quality is great, auto duplex is very convenient, generally solid construction
  • Cons: These toner cartridges have a chip which decides when they're out of toner. They expire while the cartridge may even be half full. New cartridges are very expensive. You cannot get remanufactured cartridges, there are a couple infamous court cases where Lexmark sued remanufacturers and put their ...
