The Lexmark E340 printer uses laser printer toner and is designed for the small office environment. Its sharp design and powerful processor are impressive, and its fast speeds and excellent print quality make it an excellent choice.
The Lexmark E340 laser printer sports a unique design that sets it apart from typical boxy beige designs. Its sharp black and gray color scheme is simple but still eye-catching. It is not exactly small, but its footprint is small enough to occupy a small spot in the office. The unit measures 9.8 inches by 15.6 inches by 13.9 inches, and weighs 22 pounds, so it is also light enough to be moved around by one or two people.
The E340's paper capacity should be enough for most small offices, with 250 sheets in its main drawer and a single-sheet manual feed slot. If more paper capacity is needed, a second additional drawer can be added with a capacity of 550 sheets, for a total of 800 sheets.
It connects via USB or parallel. No ethernet port is included, though it could be connected to an ethernet network with either a print server or a host computer enabling sharing.
Lexmark E340 toner cartridges have a capacity of 2,500 pages in a single black printer toner cartridge, and a high-yield laser toner cartridge is also available for a capacity of 6,000 sheets. The E340 has a toner save mode, which reduces the amount of laser toner needed per page. This helps users get the most of each Lexmark E340 toner cartridge. Buyers should weigh the options, however, as HP 2600 toner | LaserJet 2600 toner is similarly priced for black printing, for example, but adds the advantage of color printing.
Print quality is excellent. Text is very sharp and detailed, and the 2400 dpi (interpolated) printing engine adds extra sharpness. Graphics quality is average, but still very usable. Print speed is very impressive for the price, at 30 pages per minute.
