Lexmark X548dte Review: Color Laser MFP Offers Speedy Results

 

In many regards, the $1749 (as of June 20, 2011) Lexmark X548dte is an excellent workgroup color laser multifunction (print/copy/scan/fax). The output quality is good, the paper handling is generous, and the control panel, with its large, 7-inch color...

Generous, versatile paper handling ; Fast color scanning

Rear output tray is difficult to access ; Only extra-high-yield toner is reasonably priced

The X548dte's paper handling and peppy performance address workgroup needs well, but its toner costs can be prohibitive.

Lexmark X548dte

Text quality is less impressive than graphics and photo quality

The Lexmark X548dte delivers fast speed, unusually high-quality graphics and photos, acceptable text, and an easy to use front-panel touch screen.

Review: Lexmark X548dte

 

The Lexmark X548dte's paper handling and peppy performance address workgroup needs well, despite its inconvenient design.

Generous, versatile paper handling ; Fast color scanning ;

Rear output tray is difficult to access ; Only extra-high-yield toner is reasonably priced ;

Setting up the X548dte via USB or ethernet is a breeze. The Lexmark Home software takes care of all the printing and scanning chores on the PC. On the Mac, you get a Lexmark printer driver, but Lexmark defers to Mac OS's Image Capture scan application...

Normally we applaud printers that handle the basics well - especially one with output as nice as the Lexmark X548dte's. However, its design is inconvenient, and its toner is too expensive.
