Lexmark CX410 Series MFP
Unorthodox doesn't always equate with inferior. Despite an output tray that discharges in the rear, the Lexmark CX410 Multifunction Color Laser Printer is far more than a glorified fax machine. And, its trayless multipurpose input feeder, which handles just a single sheet at a time, still seems a clever way to save space and improve ease-of use.
Introduced in October, Lexmark's latest CX410-series of laser MFPs combines printing, copying, faxing and scanning, all in high-resolution color. Its $699 starting list price and rated duty cycle of 75,000 pages per month places it squarely in the small-business space. Setup on Mac and Windows was quick, and the printer delivered every bit of its rated 32 pages per minute for color or black, but its Lexmark's 11 second time-to-first-page was only about half right. Lexmark's offers a bare bones Mobile Printing app for Android and iOS. Still, the Lexmark CX410 Multifunction Color Laser Printer is worth a look.
