Lexmark C734dn Color Laser Printer

 

Lexmark's C734dn color laser printer ($899 at this writing) has an overenthusiastic color palette and a few small design problems. Nevertheless, it should satisfy most mainstream offices with its speed, cheap toner, and features aplenty.

Very fast; easy to use; low-cost toner ; Automatic duplexing; banner printing

Colors tend to be oversaturated ; Toner design is awkward to use

Offices will like the speed, features, and low cost; the default color palette is oversaturated.

Lexmark C734dn

 

The Lexmark C734dn is the top all-around performer in this review. Coupled with a great government price, it's the reliable and accurate color printer that most people will want to see in their agencies.

Best-looking text in review, great color, fast printing

Large LCD screen is underutilized

Lexmark C734dn review

 

Businesses requiring large and frequent print jobs will relish the extensive array of paper handling facilities and general all-round performance of the Lexmark C734dn.

It perhaps won’t be superlative print quality that draws you to the Lexmark C734dn (although both text and graphics are quite easy on the eye), but if your business needs a heavy-duty printer packed with a huge range of options and possessed of...

Lexmark's business C734dn laser may be quick, but is let down by high running costs

Lexmark C734dn printer

 

The cost of the colour laser printer may have tumbled in the past two years, with some very powerful office models available for well under ?300. But that's not to say that there isn't still plenty of demand for heavy-duty models in the mold of the...

Lexmark's business C734dn laser may be quick, but is let down by high running costs

 

A low-cost colour laser with fast colour printing and good expansion options, but running costs are high

Initial running costs will be even higher as Lexmark ships the printer with ‘starter' cartridges. You get 256MB of memory included, and additional RAM is prohibitively expensive

Product Specifications

Ideal for mid-sized and large workgroups, the Lexmark C734dn delivers excellent color quality, business-class reliability and high-speed printing up to 28 ppm in both black and color. It's also equipped with practical features to boost your productivity, like a 4-line graphical display for easy operation, and a front-side Direct USB port for convenient walk-up printing.
