The Lexmark E232 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user, like a lot of other toners. Its fast speeds, compact size, and economical toner usage make it an excellent choice.
The design of the Lexmark E232 is quite compact. It measures 9.8 inches by 15.6 inches by 13.9 inches and weighs 22 pounds with the toner cartridge. This makes it a good fit for the home office or other environments where space is tight. Its light weight also makes it easy to move around. Paper capacity is 250 sheets in its single tray. The lack of a second multipurpose tray could be an issue for users who routinely use a second paper type, as it means emptying the tray before loading a new paper type.
The printer can be connected by either USB or Parallel port. For its size and price, the E232 is more powerful than one would expect. It has a 200 mhz processor and 16 MB of memory in its standard configuration. The memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 80 MB if necessary. This processing power allows the printer to process its own print jobs without relying on the host computer, which speeds up the process.
The Lexmark E232 is a very economical printer. The Lexmark E232 toner cartridges come in two capacities. The standard Lexmark E232 toner cartridge has a capacity of 2,600 pages, and the high-yield version has a capacity of 6,000 pages. The E232 also has a toner save mode, which can reduce laser toner usage by as much as 40%, saving the user even more money which is similar to the HP 2600 toner save mode.
Print quality is excellent, with sharp and detailed text even at small font sizes. Graphics quality is good, but a bit below average. Print speed is very fast for the price, at up to 22 pages per minute.
Overall, the Lexmark E232 is an excellent compact printer that will find a place in tight office spaces. Its affordable price and economical toner costs will result in a very low cost of ownership.
