The Lexmark E332 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the small office environment. Its fast speeds and affordable price make it a good choice for a busy small office on a budget. Text quality could be better, however. For home offices, this isn't the best option, but the Samsung ML-1740 that uses Samsung ML-1710D3 toner may be.
Despite a fast processor and good paper capacity, the Lexmark E332 still manages to have a fairly small footprint. It measures 9.8 inches by 15.6 inches by 13.9 inches (HWD) and weighs 22 pounds. It can connect by USB or Parallel port, and its most common model, the Lexmark E332n, also features a built-in ethernet port for connecting and sharing it across a network of computers. Paper capacity is 250 sheets in its single drawer.
Setting up the printer is easy. When connecting via USB, it is important to install the drivers first, as instructed in the manual and the quick start guide. Otherwise, Windows will attempt to install a generic driver, with less functionality than the Lexmark driver. Connecting to a network is simple, and the process is outlined well in the manual. Lexmark integrates its MarkVision network software into the E332, which allows users to connect to the printer remotely to change settings, view status, and manage print jobs. <
Lexmark E332 toner cartridges have a capacity of 2,500 pages, but high-yield cartridges are also available, with a capacity of 6,000 pages. The E332 includes a toner save mode, which reduces the amount of toner used per page, resulting in lower toner costs. The Lexmark E332 toner cartridges are very affordably-priced, unlike Dell 330-2209 toner.
Print speed is impressive for the price, at 21 pages per minute. Text quality is generally good, but smaller fonts are not as readable. Graphics quality is a little below average, but still usable enough for everyday printing. It also can't print in color, so those who wish for color capabilites should try a model that features Xerox 106R01082 toner.
Overall, the Lexmark E332 printer gets a lot of things right, such as paper capacity and speed, but misses a few marks with print quality. Its affordable upfront cost and laser toner costs make an economical choice, but quality might disappoint some users.
