Summary: Another commenter talked about how difficult it is to set a static IP. I run all of mine static and I just plug it into a network that has DHCP running on it. At home this would likely be from your wireless router or modem.
Pros: Solid printer. Very fast. I've been impressed with the performance of lexmark printers. The setup is easy and the cost is great.
Cons: Toner cost. The cartridge is up to 5000 page yield now. That is an improvement over the e260's.
Summary: This is a black and white printer not color. It does not have wireless, no LCD screen, or a paper tray indicator level but what it is and does so well is print at really fast speeds at laser quality.
Not as many features as the competition, but still a solid basic printer

Summary: Top 5 reasons why this is good, but not excellent basic printer. I like this Lexmark as a bare bones printer, but for lower prices there are better choices. *** PROS *** #1 COST PER PAGE - If you aren't printing photos at home (I prefer online sites like snapFish and Shutterfly), then black and...
I like it - but there are serious toner considerations

Summary: So far, the Lexmark MS310dn has been an easy to use, fast and high quality printer. The biggest plusses: 1. Easy to install via home network (no need to use the USB) 2. Fast printing with typical laser quality 3. Nice paper capacity (250 sheets) 4. Auto duplex printing (that works well) 5.
Summary: A previous user complained about getting the printer set up with a static IP address for use as a network printer. It's easy: After plugging the printer in, and hooking up the network cable, the printer will print a test page which will contain the IP address that it got from your network.
Pros: This is the follow on model to the Lexmark e260dn and have it set up as my home office printer and services my families Mac, Windows, and Ubuntu computers. A few observations: Fast startup when going from hibernation (low power) mode to print. Duplex mode is fast as well. No paper jams and easy s...
Cons: The printer is slightly noisier than the e260dn, but not by much. Like most laser printers, the refills are almost half the cost of the printer, though I have had great success on third part refills.
Cons: I just ordered and set this up for someone's home office. The setup (going through the wizards) took just a few minutes. I connected this printer into a wireless router via an Ethernet cable. The drivers on the computer picked up the printer by the IP address, and I was printing within minutes. H...
