Lexmark X204n Review and Ratings


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

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...

Lexmark support is excellent!


We are a small office that does a fair amount of copying. Decided to try smaller less expensive machines vs. continuing with an expensive contract for an expensive machine. Purchased this unit in 6/11. Hasn't been perfect; the first machine had a major...
