Summary: I am a retired IT Director with years of experience with Lexmark and HP mono lasers. Like the "bunny", the Lexmarks keep on working until Lexmark declines to issue drivers for a new operating system. A predecessor tried to save $ using 3rd party toners but ran up excessive repair costs. A policy change to "only genuine Lexmark toner" fixed that. AKA, the "Lexmark E250dn", this mono printer is networked at my home to XP, Vista and Win 7 machines.
Summary: Comments about Lexmark E250DN: This printer is very space age looking to me and fits in very well with the look of our architecture firm. We were able to network it through the office with hardly any effort and it’s been very easy to show how employees how to operate. We clocked it at 25 pages per minute which was fast compared to our old printer. We recommend it to anyone looking for a unique printer at a great price.
Summary: Comments about Lexmark E250DN: I do a lot of printing at home when I bring things home from the office. I needed something that was affordable with my budget and also produced good printed pages. This one does it. So far, it appears easier on the ink than my old printer so I'm pleased about that. It is a bit on the slow side, but not too bad.
Summary: Comments about Lexmark E250DN: I bought this printer for my daughter. She needed something as I didn’t want her using moms office printer all the time. She loves it. She has printed recipes, labels, reports, resumes, pictures and envelopes and I think it works exceptionally well for her. The printer isn’t even that heavy to lift. It’s a pretty fast set up and install. The quality of the pictures that she prints is quite glamorous!
Summary: As an adult student I print constantly. I have an inkjet printer but I can't highlight those pages without the ink smearing (laser print doesn't do that). That's where the laser printer comes in. This printer is used daily - average 20 pages duplex per day and has NEVER, NOT ONE TIME, had an error or a jam. It is the perfect printer. The reliability factor is so important and many other printers, both inkjet and laser, don't even compare to this.
Summary: At the list price Amazon shows or even the price lexmark sells this for this would be a disappointment. But at the current price half way between 100 and 200 dollars this is a steal. see edit 1* I've only lived with it for 3 days so take this with that in mind. The biggest cost of a printer are the cartridges. This printer's replacement toner cartridges are pricey if you buy the lexmark ones. Do an internet search. Replacements can be purchased for half that much.
It's the E250dn - Amazing Value - Fast Remote Internet Printing!

Summary: It has a built-in print server... So, you can install drivers on your notebook PC and print directly to it from anywhere on the Internet! It took me about FIVE hours researching to discover that it should be installed using Port Name "9100" and then use your IP address as the Hostname. You also have to configure port 9100 on your router so that it passes through to the printer making it accessable from the Internet.
Summary: Bought this to replace a Brother B&W duplexing laser that suddenly decided to go belly up after a little under 2 years of light use. I really enjoyed the convenience of the duplexing, so I bypassed some other laser printers to get to this one. Although it was a little more expensive than what it would have cost to replace my Brother, I've found thus far that it's been well worth it. CNET gave this printer good reviews, and now I know why.
