The Lexmark C543DN color laser printer is designed for the small or medium office environment. Its fast speeds and built-in networking will appeal to busy offices, and its duplexing and economical toner costs will save money. Need a printer for a large office? The Dell 3110cn toner printer might be a better choice.
The Lexmark C543DN color laser printer, also referred to as the C543, has built-in networking for easily connecting it directly to an ethernet network. This allows it to be up and running on an office network and available to network users almost right out of the box. It also includes automatic duplexing, or two-sided printing. This not only opens up more printing options for users, such as booklets, but also conserves paper by printing on both sides automatically. This can even be set as the default option for the office.
Its relatively compact size makes it a good choice for small offices as well, though it may be a little too large for very tight spaces. The unit measures 11.5 inches by 16.7 inches by 15.7 inches, and weighs around 46 pounds. Paper capacity consists of a single 250-sheet tray, but more can be added with upgrades, bringing the total paper capacity to a maximum of 900 sheets.
Lexmark C543DN toner cartridges are fairly affordable. Users will get more from each printer toner cartridge by using the toner save mode and duplexing. Each color laser toner cartridge has a 1,000 page capacity, as does the black cartridge, but high-yield cartridges are also available. Larger-volume offices may want to consider the HP 2500 toner printer.
Print speed is quite impressive, at 21 pages per minute for both black and color prints. Text quality is very sharp and detailed, with well-defined characters that are very dark. Graphics and photo quality is better than might be expected for the price, and quite usable.
Overall, the Lexmark C543DN will fit the needs of a small or medium office nicely. Excellent quality, fast speeds, and a compact size combine to give it a lot of value and setting it above the competition, such as the LaserJet CP1518 toner printer.
