Do not buy!! low yield toner, will not let you print when one is empty.
2 October 2013
Summary: The quality of print for this printer is very good however; the yield for the toner cartridges is very low. My page count right now is 360. I replaced the black cartridge already two weeks ago. My Magenta is now out and this printer will not print at all because of the "88 Replace Magenta" error even though the black is full. You can't even access any of the printer menus. I just flashes red until you pay for a new cartridge.
Summary: I found the initial setup on my wireless network (Apple Airport Extreme) to be challenging and it required a call to Lexmark's excellent tech support team. After the setup was sorted out, I found the Lexmark C544DW Color Laser Printer to be a very high quality small workgroup or home office printer. It's relatively fast and the output quality is excellent. It's also completely silent in standby mode.
Summary: I am very disappointed in the performance of this printer. I just spent 2.5 hours printing out 228 pages double-sided in color for a club newsletter. That is about 3-sides per minute, which is a huge difference the published speed. After printing the 228 pages plus about 100 pages in black, printer status reports that the black toner is about 25% depleted (only 75% left) and the magenta is depleted 25% (around 75% left).
Summary: I am a graphic designer and have a small home office. It prints well and I really like the duplex feature. It has rarely jammed, and when it did, it was easy to clear the jam. The toner is very easy to change. I did have a bit of trouble setting up the wireless feature, but Lexmark's customer service was excellent. They patiently worked with me to set it up -- and they didn't even make me feel like an idiot!
Summary: I replaced an older Okidata with this printer and regret it. The WiFi on this printer has been a challenge. I have had to contact support multiple times to get up and running. You have to make sure you set this item to be on a static IP. That would help you avoid the issues I had. Also, the printer is slow and the manual feed tray is OK at best. Print quality is pretty good. I do like the duplex feature if you are willing to wait for it to complete.
Summary: This unit replaced my Ricoh 3500 Color Laser. While the Lexmark has print advantages, its a slower machine print wise in: Energy Save Mode - To first print job it makes a low buzzing noise when it is warming up. I miss the instant spool up of the Ricoh. Duplex Mode it feeds the paper out and then pulls it back in, a rather inefficient and slower duplexing system and to an impatient person you may pull the copy from the feeder causing a misprint.
Summary: While advertised as being compatible with the Macintosh operating system, the installation manual's instructions for getting the wireless system working do not work. I needed to use Lexmark's live chat (and allow them to wire in to my computer) to get it working using a completely different installation procedure. Then within a few weeks, the wireless network card began having problems and I needed to resort to live chat again.
Summary: very goo d printer - but wireless functionality very difficult to set up and for some reason always seems to become offline in the end just have it wired up Toner seams to last a reasonable time easy to change clean

Pros: una stampante versatile e dalle prestazioni più che discrete
Summary: Een mooi compacte en stille printer. Het printen is snel (ca 3 sec. per pagina, circa 20 sec. voor een Full-Color foto in de hoogste kwaliteit). De tonercartridges zijn eenvoudig en schoon te verwisselen. Ze gaan echter niet zo lang mee, waardoor het printen wel duur is (het aantal pagina's dat gespecificeerd wordt is natuurlijk voor 5% dekking, net als bij alle merken. Full-color gebruikt dan 5x zoveel).
