not totally convinced

Summary: little disappointed at myself that I did not research it enough before I hit buy button. this printer is really fast and wifi works great but it lacks all the other features such as scanning. I wished I had selected something different like a better all in one printer.
Summary: Not a lot to add to what is on other reviews which I think fairly describe the pro's and con's of this printer. This printer replaces a Xerox 8500 which broke down and would have cost more than the Lexmark C544DN to repair.
Summary: I replaced an aging tank-like Konica-Minolta color laser which never worked right and cost a fortune to maintain. This printer has worked fine with Mac OSX in a wireless Airport Express environment for two years. It did have a failed power supply for the fuser which gave error messages.
Summary: There are about 7 of these printers networked in my workplace ( both wired and wireless ) They are fast, print crisply and are consistently reliable. I highly recommend spending the extra money for the wireless version which is just as fast, but allows much more freedom when rearranging work spaces.
Summary: I've had this printer for over a year in my workplace, and it has been excellent for everything except printing envelopes. This is our networked printer, so our 5-person office all use it. We do a lot of printing and a lot of it is graphical and colorful.
Lexmark 544DN is excellent for a small office, fast and quiet.

Summary: This printer is quiet and fast. Excellent for a small office. Changing paper sizes is a pain as you have to extend the back of the closed paper tray. This could have been engineered better.Outside of the paper tray problem I am very pleased with the quality and performance.
Summary: Set up was a snap.... ethernet cable power cable and that was it. Instruction to unpackage was clear and easy todo. Make sure the ink carthridges are seated in place. Hooked up to a MacPro OS10.6.4 Open up Print/Fax Preferences and add printer... that's it!
Summary: Very pleased with the printer. It's a little noisy but I understand there is an option to actually decrease noise level. Quality on documents, in color and in black and white, is excellent. I am having a slight problem with photos but they have sent me a replacement part.
Summary: I purchased a pair of these. Unboxed both and found the toner had exploded inside. There was yellow, magenta and black dust covering the printers. It was also all over the inside of the printers. Trying to get them replaced seemed somewhat complicated for reasons that elude me now.
Summary: Reliable, good crisp output. No speed demon. Has jammed only once in two years of use. Expensive to operate: this machine seems programmed to stop printing when only one cartridge is too low, forcing you to buy a new cartridge in order to continue printing.
