Offering bold color printing for busy workgroups, the Lexmark X748DE (or X748) multifunction color laser printer has a great feature set and fast speeds of up to 35 pages per minute. Its large control panel is easy to use, and buyers who need more capacity can choose the X748DTE model which includes an extra paper tray. Prices for Lexmark X748DE printer toner are very high, however, making it less cost-effective over the long term.
The X748DE is a bit on the large side, and the scanning unit hovers over the base in a way that is somewhat awkward. It is also quite heavy, weighing nearly 100 pounds without the Lexmark X748DE toner installed. Included in the scanning unit is a flatbed scanning platen and an automatic document feeder with a capacity of 50 pages for quickly scanning many pages. Users can scan at resolutions up to 600 dpi for sharp results.
The unit comes standard with both front and rear USB 2.0 ports for connecting to devices, but most users will likely choose the network port for easy sharing across the office. An optional wireless network port provides easy connection to any 802.11b/g/n network.
Despite so many great features and a solid design, the high cost of replacement toners will likely cause buyers to look elsewhere. The three color Lexmark X748DE toner cartridges have capacities of up to 10,000 pages, and the black supply has a capacity of up to 12,000 pages. Unfortunately, prices for Lexmark X748DE toner cartridges make the cost per page around 2 cents, which is higher than many competing units.
Buyers may be drawn to the X748DE for its speed, intuitive touchscreen control panel, or its solid networking features, but its high running costs keep it from being a cost-effective solution. Offices on a budget will want to look elsewhere.
