Lexmark reckons its X544dn is great value for small and medium workgroups and after putting the machine through its paces, we’re inclined to agree with the firm.

From a performance perspective the Lexmark’s print engine proved a champ; it was able to complete our 20-page mono and 20-page colour text prints managing output speeds of 19ppm and 14.6ppm. Very impressive.

The strong performance continued when we fed the printer our six page text and graphics PDF, as it managed a monochrome performance of 11.2ppm and a colour result of 5.3ppm. Again a very impressive print result.

Beyond its swift printing, the Lexmark is incredibly flexible; you can upgrade its memory from 128Mbytes to 640Mbytes. This will improve performance if your business grows and has more intensive print requirements. The X544dn features a small LCD screen that’s flanked by numerous buttons and these allow you to use the printer in the absence of a PC.

You can make copies, shrink or enlarge documents, send faxes and more without needing an IT degree thanks to its intuitive design and interface. The Lexmark isn’t perfect however; it is quite audible when working and also gives off a noticeable ozone odor, so we recommend placing the printer away from your staff.

Verdict: When you take into account the X544dn's many features and super quick printing, it is seriously good value.
