The Lexmark E322 laser printer is designed for the small office that plans to grow in the future. It offers great performance and fast speeds with the ability to expand to meet future needs. Its low upfront price makes it affordable for personal use, however expensive Lexmark E322 toner makes overall costs hard on the wallet.
The most striking feature of the E322 is probably its compact design, especially given its fast performance. It measures just 15 inches by 14.3 inches by 8.7 inches and weighs only 22 pounds. This would be typical of a personal printer, but this machine is built for small office use. The unit can be connected via USB port, but the E322N model also supports networking with a built-in ethernet port. Connecting and sharing among multiple users is a quick and easy process.
Networking can also be added to the base model as one of many expansion options. The initial 8 MB of memory can be expanded to 72 MB, and a second input paper draw can be added to upgrade the initial 150 sheets of paper capacity. A flash memory card upgrade is also available to add local storage for fonts, forms and other items.
The cost of replacing toners is high because discount Lexmark toner
is not available in remanufactured or compatible versions. Without competition, the genuine Lexmark E322 toner cartridges can be very expensive. Lexmark E322 toner cartridges have a capacity of 6,000 pages, which results in a relatively low cost per page for the user.
With all the benefits of a small office printer in a design that is compact enough for personal use, the Lexmark E322 has the best of both worlds. Its affordable price is low enough for almost any budget, and expandability options make it a great choice for the growing office.
