Lexmark C530DN C530 DN Duplex Colour Laser Printer Network Ready – Network Laser Printer

This is an intermediate laser printer, positioned between the typical lightweight soho-oriented printers and the larger units found in most corporate environments. To give you an idea of where it sits in the continuum: it has a proper internal paper tray just like a corporate model, but the capacity is limited to 300 sheets which makes it seem more like a home/small business model. One of the most notable features is the network connectivity, meaning you can connect it to your network hub/switch and print from any connected computer. It supports a range of network printing protocols meaning just about any os should work–we have windows and macos x here, and setup was straightforward using the on-disk pdf manual. There are usb and parallel interfaces for those who can’t be bothered with setting up the networking (but those people should consider its little brother, the ml-3050, which is just the same but without the ethernet interface). Another noteworthy feature is postscript support in addition to the ubiquitous pcl and a couple of proprietary protocols. For typical home/small office duty i suspect this printer will last forever, judging by the weight, build quality, and monthly rated page count (100,000). Toner seems fairly economical (as economical as it ever gets), and there’s a ‘toner save’ button that extends toner life by a claimed 40% while still delivering prints that are good enough for draft use. Samsung currently offers a free return/recycling service on empty toner cartridges: google for ‘samsung toner recycling’ to find out how to print the address labels etc.

This printer is large and very heavy, some of the bulk is due to the single pass method of printing but you do need a fair bit of space. It has built in duplexing and an extra fold out tray for card and evelopes etc. The built in networking is a huge bonus and makes it ideal for a workgroup printer. Print quality in black or colour is superb with near photograhic quality on plain paper. Build quality seems fairly solid. Not a very easy to understand driver. Toner cartridges are only half full, a replacement set will set you back £320 but you can refill the cartridges using third party toner and chips which cuts the cost of toner by two thirds.
