Lexmark X502n color laser multifunction

 

A color laser multifunction aimed squarely at small offices and work groups, the $700 Lexmark X502n prints, scans, copies, and faxes, and does it all quickly and well. (If you don't need fax, the X500n saves you $200.) The X502n isn't perfect--it's...

Produces high-quality prints very quickly; low print costs; network ready; built-in ADF.

No junk fax blocker or secure fax receive mode; no way to save fax groups; walk-up scanning is not enabled with USB connections; grayscale scanning needs some improvement.

Although it's missing some fax features that many small offices and work groups find useful, the Lexmark X502n produces fast, high-quality prints. This is one laser multifunction that has a lot going for it.

Lexmark X502n

 

The Lexmark X502n ($699 direct) color laser all-in-one (AIO) does so many things so well that it could have been a strong Editors' Choice contender. Unfortunately, it trips over the little things, most notably clear instructions for how to use some of...

Fast. High-quality output. Printer; scanner; standalone fax machine, copier, and e-mail sender

Can't fax from PC. Lacks instructions for key features

The Lexmark X502n offers an impressive combination of speed, output quality, and features but lacks the fine attention to detail that would make it an unequivocal winner.

"Stupid High Cost Per Page"

 

I've had my Lexmark printer for what I feel is a short time. In that period, I have printed only a handful of color print jobs due to the obscene cost of color toner. (Current cost is about $80 USD for each of the three colors, $240 USD total.) My...

Easy Setup for me

Cost per page, Lexmark support, and pretty much just the Lexmark company as a whole

"I will never buy Lexmark again !"

 

On new and full cartridges its good. DF works well.

Over priced to start with. Lots of jams. A mission to link up with Vista. A toner guzzler ! Very expensive toner ! Cannot refill.

"As advertised. No burps yet. Great printing and color."

 

Easy installation for all functions. Accurate color. I don't print high volumes but my son-in-law has an identical x502n in his construction shed at a large project, all who have used it like its volume capability and ease of cartridge replacement.

Have no complaints so far. Using the printer for business, and it performs flawlessly. Prints on cardstock, CD labels, heavy or regular, glossy or matte stock.

Problem after Problem

 

After spending hours on the phone with technical support and having two technicians come on two separate occasions and even after replacing a part in the printer I RETURNED THE PRINTER. first I couldn't set it up on my mac. Then the printing didn't...

Prints quickly when it works

Scanning put lines across the document. Printing didn't work all the time ; If left turned on too long (even if not in use) it will stop working and we'll need to be off for 4 hours before it re-initializes, maybe ; Not fully compatible with Mac OS X

Better Printers For Less Money.

 

I believe this printer is over rated. thousand dollar printer that comes with $20.00 software. I was very disappointed, really expected this be much better. I have owned $100 HP inkjets whose software was far superior. The original toner cartridges...
