Lexmark 4039 Printer Review
The Lexmark 4039 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the medium or large workgroup. Its print speeds are a bit slow, at up to 10 pages per minute, but its sharp print quality and economical printer toner help to make up for it, as Lexmark 4039 toner is some of the least expensive in its class.
Connectivity is a bit limited with the 4039, as it only supports a parallel connection, though users can purchase a network or USB adapter to convert the single parallel connection. The unit's design is fairly compact, measuring 11.8 inches by 14.9 inches by 21 inches (HWD) and weighing only 40.3 pounds. The white exterior blends in well in most office environments, but adds little to the aesthetic appeal. The machine includes 2 MB of RAM, which can be upgraded to a maximum of 10 MB.
Replacing toners is a quick and easy operation, and Lexmark 4039 toner cartridges are very inexpensive, making it an affordable operation as well. High-capacity Lexmark 4039 toner cartridges have a page yield of up to 12,800, which means users won't have to replace them often.
User reviews of the 4039 are generally very positive. Users praise its reliability and its sharp output quality, as well as its fast speeds. Some users also mention the lack of paper jams and other problems that often plague other models. A few users find the cost of Lexmark 4039 ink to be a bit high.
Overall, the slower speeds of the Lexmark 4039 might be an issue for some buyers, but its compact design and reliability will likely be worth the tradeoff for many. The excellent print quality combined with its affordable price and ease of use make it a very appealing model for those who don't need the bells and whistles of more expensive models.
