Not as good as they say!


This printer is unreliable. Copies come out smudgy even with new toner cartridges and it has been cleaned. It frequently doesn't print double-sided giving the message there is a jam and to open rear door, when no jam exists.

Easy setup

Unreliable, Noisy, Jams easily

LEXMARK E360dn 34S0500 Workgroup Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer


Bought this to replace an old HP in order to get duplex printing. Bad decision. Using 64 bit drivers under XP64. I wonder if that is the problem. But reliable 64 bit drivers should be available by now.

Fast, good print quality. Duplex works great

Frequent jams which result in non-recoverable errors. Must uninstall, then reinstall printer and drivers to restore printing. May work great for a week, the crash several times in a day. Very frustrating. Also, must manually acknowledge paper change...

Very solid machine


This machine replaced a more expensive HP machine, victim of premature multiple organ (network interface, duplexer, etc.) failure. Cost of this one << cost of repair of the old one.

I've had the E360d (non-networked version) for just under a year. It's solidly built; toner remove/replace and paper tray operate smoothly. Print quality is as good, duplexer operates well (no paper jams of any sort). Love the hhuuuuggge toner...

Much larger than a deck of cards. Definitely non-pocketable

PC Load Letter?!?


I should have never strayed from HP

Its not very heavy, so you can get some good distance when you heave it across the office in frustration

This is the ONLY printer I have ever owned where the multi-purpose tray has to be selected in the print software before each use, then the main paper tray selected again when you're done ; 75% of the time jobs will be printed from the standard paper...

Works great


If the user manual is on the disc, I couldn't find it so I had to get help to set it up and I still don't know some of the applications of the printer.

Compact Design,Durable construction,Easy To Use,Fast Print Time,Sharp detail

Hard Setup,No paper user manual

problems... not happy.


Overall the printer seems to be well designed except for probably the two most important things, removing the toner cartridge, and paper jams ; Drvier install was easy ; Printer has a parallel port

1. Paper jams. Using office depot 20lb paper, every sheet jams in the printer and in multiple locations in the print path. Maybe a different paper would work better, not sure ; 2. toner cartridge removal problems. The toner cartridge gets hung up...

So far, so good


This replaced an ancient HP 4/mv 11x17" printer I bought used. HP stopped making cartridges for it and old ones in the supply seem to be failing. I spotted this printer in research for a replacement as "Coming soon" and Newegg appears to be the first...

Duplexer works, very fast time to get page out, two line display is adequate, Web interface is nice, quiet, inexpensive, has .ppd file for Linux. MacOS likes it too

Setup instructions could be a little more clear, e.g. manual IP address setup instructions are not on the quick setup card

Lexmark E360dn Mono Printer


Average speed with 40 ppm and 18 ppm duplex. It is durable and will with stand any environment. Smaller footprint is ideal for people with not a lot of room for a larger laser device.

Lexmark E360dn Mono Printer


These printers are pretty solid. At first it printed much slower than advertised, until we switched the driver to PS3 instead of PCL5 or 6. The price is a bit steep though. You can look at other brands and get essentially the same specs for a third of...

We have several of these printers around the hospital I work at. Great support from Lexmark when we do run across and issue, and overall the printers run great with few issues ever arising.
