The Lexmark CX310DN is a multifunction color laser printer that also includes the ability to copy and scan. It uses affordable Lexmark CX310DN printer toner to keep operating costs down, though it is a little on the slow side at 25 pages per minute. Some of its features are expandable as well, such as the paper capacity.
The CX310 series also includes the CX310N model, which includes the same networking capabilities as the CX310DN, but doesn't include duplexing. For the small upgrade in price, the ability to save paper with two-sided printing should be worth it for most buyers. The machine is a bit bulkier than its dedicated counterparts, measuring 18.44x17.48x21.99 inches, and buyers should consider its weight of 60.25 pounds before they unpack and set it up, as they may need some help.
The 50-page automatic document feeder and flatbed scanning platen provide multiple options for scanning and copying, and the maximum scanning resolution of 600x600 dpi should be more than enough for typical office use. The control panel includes surprisingly few buttons, but instead uses the 2.5-inch color display to put important features front and center. Novices will appreciate the simplicity, though experts may find they have to dig through menus for advanced features.
The starter toners included in the box are a little anemic, providing only 1,400 pages. Standard replacement Lexmark CX310DN toner cartridges can provide up to 2,000 pages for each color and 2,500 pages for black, however. Prices for Lexmark CX310DN toner cartridges are fairly affordable, though not the lowest in its class.
Small offices that want a versatile machine they can upgrade in the future will find a lot to like about the CX310DN. Its combination of high-quality output and well-designed office functions makes it a good value, and Lexmark CX310DN toner should be affordable enough for small budgets.
