The Lexmark E210 is affordable and compact, with good text quality. Below average graphic and photo quality and slow printing might be reasons to look elsewhere, like the Lexmark C534 toner printer. With a street price around $200, the Lexmark E210 is a monochrome laser printer aimed at budget-minded buyers who may be looking to take a step up from inkjet printers. While the quality will be an improvement from almost any inkjet printer, it doesn't quite match up to other color lasers at this price point. Text quality is fairly sharp, with text being readable as small as 6 pt fonts, but bluriness appears in smaller fonts. Graphics printing is a little below average, with graphics coming out on the light side, looking somewhat washed out, although there are adjustments to make prints lighter and darker.
With its compact size, the E210 will cater mostly to small offices with small capacity needs. Coupled with its 150 page paper capacity, larger offices will be spending a lot of time reloading paper. Lack of an ethernet port makes it mainly a single-user printer, though it could be shared through a computer connected to a router or network. For a home user, or small office user connecting only one or two machines, however, it would fit in well.
Printing speed is about average for this class of laser printer, around 9 pages per minute, but per page costs are high, around 4 cents per page, when using the 2000 capacity toner cartridge. In fact, the high per page costs may be enough to cancel out the savings on the upfront cost of the printer, making it an expensive choice in the long run.
Overall, the Lexmark E210 expensive cost per page and below average print quality make it difficult to recommend, though users with small capacity needs might find it fits their price and performance needs.
