Although it's a little bulky for a personal laser printer, the Lexmark MS310 can output up to 35 pages per minute, and it comes in two models that let users pick and choose the features they need. The MS310D model includes duplexing, while the MS310DN also adds networking support for sharing. An Eco-Mode is available to reduce the usage of Lexmark MS310 printer toner.
For personal use on a desktop, some buyers might find it a bit large, measuring 10.3x15.7x15 inches, with a weight of 30.9 pounds before the Lexmark MS310 toner is installed. Its ability to expand might make it worth the tradeoff; however, as its initial paper capacity of 300 pages can be upgraded to 800 pages. This makes it an excellent choice for those who plan to turn a single-user office into a multi-user shared environment.
The machine includes an 800 MHz processor and 128 MB of memory, which will allow it to handle complex print jobs easily, and the first page out time is very quick, at around 6.5 seconds. Although the maximum monthly duty cycle is 50,000 pages, the manufacturer recommends no more than 2,500 pages per month for optimal reliability. The 1200 dpi printing engine can produce very sharp prints, and the 2400 IQ enhancement technology can make them seem like they were printed at even higher resolutions.
Replacement toners come in two capacities. The standard Lexmark MS310 toner cartridge has a yield of up to 1,500 pages, while the high capacity version can provide up to 5,000 pages. Prices for Lexmark MS310 toner cartridges can be a bit steep, but the cost per page is reasonable.
The Lexmark MS310 is an excellent choice for personal users who want high-quality output, and small offices will benefit from the MS310DN model with network support. Its upgradeability is a nice bonus, as long as buyers don't find it too bulky.
