LEXMARK MS312DN

 

Value for money Network ready Wide range of platform support (Windows, Apple, Linux/UNIX)

Web management interface feels a bit clunky/homegrown and can be a bit hard to navigate, but it is functional.

LEXMARK MS312DN

 

Excellent printer does exactly what it says. Windows 10 compatible. Worked straight out of the box. Excellent print quality with automatic duplex saves paper. Ideal with 80gsm laser paper.

LEXMARK MS312DN

 

We have several computers, with different operating systems, Windows7, Debian Stable, Debian Testing and Ubuntu. After networking the printer I could set up drivers and connections with ease. The admin setting for printer using web interface is...

For me the position of the on/off switch at the rear is awkward, you have to fiddle about behind the printer to find the switch.
