C522n Laser Printer

 

The C522n delivers good performance for a low price, and toner cartridges are easy to replace.

Good performance at a low price, Text quality was good overall

Glossy photos looked washed out, Color graphics printed light and grainy

Ample features and good performance make this model well suited for small offices, though print quality wasn't at the top of the heap

Lexmark C522n

 

Our contacts at Lexmark say they're excited about the Lexmark C522n ($499 direct)—and with good reason. This inexpensive color laser printer offers great performance, excellent text output, and good graphics and photo quality. It even includes an...

Very good to excellent performance for the price. Excellent text quality. Includes Ethernet connector

Graphics output is relatively low for a color laser printer

The Lexmark C522n's performance for business applications and text quality are excellent, graphics and photo quality are good, and an Ethernet connection makes sharing on a network easy.

Lexmark C522n network-ready color laser printer Review and Prices

 

The Lexmark C522n has a low upfront price for a color laser printer, but its per-page printing costs have the potential to knock a chunk out of your budget down the road.

Lexmark C522n

 

Lexmark's inexpensive color laser offers quick print speeds, Bonjour support, and high-end features like Ethernet and PostScript 3 emulation. The C522n is an affordable way for small- and medium-sized businesses to add color to documents and...

Fast print speeds ; Bonjour capable ; PostScript 3 emulation

Some fonts substituted when using Lexmark's printer driver ; some noise present in light areas of photographic images ; may be too loud for small workspaces

A little taller than many of the sub-$500 color lasers we've reviewed, the Lexmark C522n is aimed at small to medium-size businesses. To that end, the printer comes with a couple of useful features. The Lexmark Coverage Estimator helps companies figure...

Lexmark C522n

 

If the idea of approaching the office printer fills you with foreboding, you'll appreciate Lexmark's effort to make colour laser printing as painless as possible with its powerful, blisteringly fast C522n.

A great entry from Lexmark that exceeded our expectations. We didn't think draft-mode printing would look so good or come out so quickly, and the C552n is surprisingly good value for money.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Printer, Great Value.

 

Buy a laser such as this over an ink jet.

Network Printer with no quirks. Once it is warmed up it is fast. They print quality is great (no complaints I can even use is as a first round draft for print quality graphics). After life with ink jets this SO NICE. I strongly suggest purchasing this...

It is loud but blends into office noise quickly. It does take a while to warm up but that is true with any laser that I have worked with

Best Color Laser I could find

 

For the ~$xxx printer this does very well. I haven't had any paper jams as of yet using only slightly higher than el cheapo paper. HP won't suppose x64 so they were a no go. The other companies either had much slower outputs or even higher toner costs.

Fast, WinXP64 drivers

Noisy, fan randomly turns on while at idle

overall pretty good

 

overall i'm happy with this printer. it has good quality output and is pretty fast when warmed up. there are a few problems: 1. paper jams are fairly common, but very easy to fix. the ink is extremely expensive, at $100 per color, but seems to last a...

fast color printing, easy setup, low cost, high quality output, good graphics, small, lightweight

paper jams, long warm up times, paper tray is picky about how the paper sits in it, expensive ink

The Lexmark C522N is a great printer!

 

Bottom-line If you need a cost effective color laser, the Lexmark C522N is a great choice! If you’re printing lots of photos, you should probably stay away from color lasers all-together. Review I had been looking for a good ...

Fast printing, low cost per page

No duplexing, single sheet manual feeder
