The Good Fast prints; excellent print quality; built-in duplexer; network-ready; separate photoconductor means less waste; expandable on-board memory.
The Bad Text LCD isn't backlit; Cdn model doesn't have expandable paper handling options; color handling could use some minor improvements; lacks straight pass-through printing. The Bottom Line With fast speeds and impressive print quality, the Lexmark Cdn is a great color laser printer for the price.
We prefer it over a more expensive color printer from the competition. Visit for details. The Lexmark Cdn is a fast, high-quality color laser printer that we recommend for any small office or home with high-volume printing needs. Lexmark also has taken laudable steps to improve the eco-friendliness of its laser printers--by reducing power consumption and material waste--which benefits both your pocketbook and the environment, a move we applaud.
We're curious to see whether other vendors follow suit. The Lexmark Cdn's print speeds and quality are on par with the more expensive Oki Cn , which lacks a duplexer, making the Cdn a better buy. The Lexmark Cdn is a behemoth of a printer, as color lasers tend to be individual toner cartridges take up a lot of space. The Cdn's toner cartridges are stacked vertically, resulting in a tall unit: 19 inches tall by 17 inches wide by 20 inches deep.
It weighs a back-breaking 57 pounds, but two hand wells on either side help you get a grip if you need to move the printer around. The control panel is very basic. A four-line text LCD is the centerpiece, though it's not backlit, so it can be difficult to read in bad lighting conditions. Only eight buttons adorn the panel: Menu, four direction keys, a Check key, a Back key, and a Stop key. The Cdn comes with a sheet input tray that can expand to hold legal-size paper, as well as a sheet multipurpose feeder that folds out from the front panel of the paper tray.
You don't get any paper expansion options on this model, but it should be sufficient for home users. If you're in a small office environment and need expanded paper handling, the Lexmark Cn model offers the same sheet tray plus an optional sheet drawer, though you lose the multipurpose tray in favor of a single-sheet manual feed slot for an page max input. The next step up is the Cdn, which offers the sheet tray, the sheet multipurpose feeder, and the optional sheet tray, for a total input capacity of pages.
The C series machines lack straight pass-through printing, a potential problem if you're using paper that has a tendency to jam when curled. The Oki Cn does include this feature. The C series printers also come equipped with a USB connector and an Ethernet jack for network printing. You can opt for a Wi-Fi adapter, too, for wireless printing.
Using the printer's Menu option, you can change some settings including brightness, contrast, and saturation; make collated prints; or make a multipage print to fit multiple pages up to 16 onto one sheet of paper.
Lexmark's C series is part of what Lexmark is calling its "green machines," that is, printers that reduce their impact on the environment. The most obvious such feature is the built-in duplexer that comes standard on all but the Cn model. Duplexing, or automatic double-sided printing, reduces the amount of paper consumed, which is good for both the environment and your wallet.
Lexmark also is touting its new laser scanning units an internal component in laser printers , which are smaller and have fewer moving parts than traditional units, allowing for less power consumption. Finally, Lexmark has separated the toner cartridges into two units: one piece is simply the toner and the other is the photoconductor.
Most vendors use a single-unit toner plus photoconductor cartridge. Lexmark's C series photoconductors are generally good for about 20, pages and the toner cartridges that ship with the Cdn will last for about 1, pages, so clearly, the photoconductor will outlast the toner. By separating the two units, you don't need to waste a still-good photoconductor unit. All this should save you some cash and ease your mind somewhat about your contributions to landfills.
