Lexmark X204n


The X204n is a well-designed, no-frills monochrome multifunction laser for SOHO users who need to print in modest volumes.

Solidly built; easy setup and operation; very good print quality

Inconvenient single-sheet feeder; no automatic duplexer; higher-than-average per-page cost

Like other Lexmark business printers and AIOs, the X204n comes with a one-year warranty that includes onsite service and toll-free tech support. Despite its paucity of special features and the moderate cost of consumables, the X204n is a steady,...

The document feeder wad up paper repeatedly.


The document feeder is unworkable. Lexmark is sending a new printer. We will see if it is any better. Hopefully, the document feeder has been improved.

Good print when it prints

Document feeder wads up paper every time. Slow to print when given a printer command. Long delay before printing starts


Consumer review by:

Fax is unusable. Print quality poor. Support is awful.


Bottom line is, don't buy one. Mine is going up for sale, and the freebie they sent me is going up for sale.

Seemed like a decent price, but frankly there isn't anything to like about this product. It scans ok

The fax functionality is almost completely unusable. Tech support had me flash firmware, and finally they sent me a new machine (which sucked just as badly). Print quality is sub-par. Color scanning quality is ok but works via a byzantine browser UI

I would buy this product again


Was a HP user for years. Had enough of replacing the HP's after 6 months. Decided to give Lexmark a try. Best decision I ever made. Set up was a bit diffucult. Once everything was completed it was smooth sailing after that. Very quite running machine,...

Good overall printer/scanner


Overall a good printer, nothing has gone wrong so far, and its done its job. Idk if its the best bang for your buck but its still moderately good.

We picked this thing up a while back for my brother to use in college. He got done with it and now we use it at home. It prints at average speed, not blazing fast or anything just moderate. (compared to more expensive machines) Havent used the WiFi on...

Slow to start printing(biggest flaw takes up to 30 seconds sometimes), and turns on randomly. Not off randomly so it doesnt really bother me. The door for the scanner is kinda flimsy, i havent broken it and it would take effort to, but it doesnt have a...

Huge Waste of Money


I have had such good luck with lexmark in the past, now I will never buy one again. I wouldn't burn this thing to keep warm.

Prints well when it works. Wireless works well with decent range

Problem 1. "Connect" Software crashes in Win7 - EVERYTIME. If you don't closes it as soon as it pops up it will lock up your computer. Repeated the same problem on 3 PC's ; Problem 2. Randomly chooses to print black backgrounds on entire pages, using...
