One of the most trusted names when it comes to printers is Lexmark. Known for the impeccable quality that belies its otherwise cheap price, their printers are for the most part great options for those that are looking to get more for less. They also have an entry for the heavy duty printer wars, and based on initial impressions, this printer is quite a dandy. In this Lexmark C734DN Color Laser Printer review, we are going to determine if this heavy duty printer is going to be a good choice.
Based on the number of standard equipment alone, the C734DN is quite a lot of printer. This is despite the fact that it can only do printing. You will quickly forget about its lack of other amenities such as fax and scanning once you turn up the switch. This printer features speedy printing that is one of the best in class. Its maximum recorded speed for printing text in either monochrome or color format is at 30 pages per minute, a high clip in any stretch of the imagination. And if you think printing quality is compromised because of quickness, you are going to be mistaken, as its resolution is recorded at 2400 x 600 dots per inch. And their color management utilities can come in handy in case you might need it. Another thing that works in its favor is that it offers a ton of standard equipment, more than what most printing companies offer. These include an input tray that can hold up to 550 pages, an output tray that can hold up to 300 pages, and a multipurpose tray that can hold up to 100 pages. And it also features banner printing (it can hold up to 36 inches) and a duplex function, things that can come in handy if you are going to use this product for business purposes.
Now, I am going to share in this Lexmark C734DN Color Laser Printer review the things that I found to be noteworthy. One of them is the fact that this printer, as said earlier has a ton of standard features. It comes with equipment that is optional for most printers. And printing quality and speed is very good for the most part. And best of all, the cartridges used for this printer are inexpensive, great if you are operating a printing business or something like that. However, there are some quirks in this printer that spoils an otherwise great printer. For instance, when printing high quality images, oversaturation is usually observed. This can be remedied by adjusting the color management settings. And then there is the questionable toner cartridge design. If you are not careful, you can drop the cartridge onto the drums, which can turn out to be a very problematic situation.
All in all, what I can say about this Lexmark C734DN Color Laser Printer review is that this printer is quite a mixed bag. Sure it has more than its share of structural oddities. But this is more than compensated with a ton of standard futures and elite level printing standards. For me, this is a must buy, especially for those that are working on a budget.
