Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colors...but.... I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion.Assembly: This printer came with easy to read instructions. In all it took about 10 minutes to assemble.Printing: When hard-wired directly with my desktop, it was easy. The colors are magnificent.Wireless Features: Too many problems. I received an error message every time I tried to use the QRC that is required to use the wireless feature. It read the printer was not online when it was clearly connected to the internet. I also tried to use the cloud feature with My OneNote account. Again same message.Overall: I love the brilliant colors that the printer puts out, but compared to other printers in this generation class, it sorely lacks the wireless capacity of those brands. This is a much needed feature for use with more than one computer. Hope that is improved with next generation of printers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast but with Color Saturation Problems I received this product in exchange for an honest review. The Pros: The printer is easy to set up; there was no assembly required other than plugging in the power cord. Since it has wifi, I can use the printer with all three of my computers. Because it`s in a state of readiness to print at all times, there is only a delay of a second or two before it starts printing. It prints FAST, over 25 pages a minute, it is capable of printing double-sided copies, and it prints in both color and black and white. For a small business printer, it is fairly compact; it measures 16.2` wide x 15.5`deep. The toner cartridges are easy to replace. The Cons: The print color comes out light, and for large blocks of color, you can see areas where the color isn`t completely saturated. I`ve tried adjusting the color, setting the toner darkness, making sure the color saver is off, etc., to no avail. There is no manual available online to try to trouble-shoot further. I`d give this a C+ grade as is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer! I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. The printing is fast and the black and color inks are extremely crisp and sharp looking. Double sided printing is also very useful. The wireless set up was fast and the unit did not require assembly. The written set up instructions were limited, and could be more detailed, but it was pretty easy and intuitive to figure out how to get it on my wireless network just by clicking through the buttons and prompts on the printers display. This printer is of very high quality. Overall I am very happy with it and would recommend it to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice basic printer but too large for only a printer I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. I received the Lexmark C3426dwe Printer to test. As a basic printer it was easy to take out of the box and set up. All that was needed to do was untape the front and the back pull the tabs of the ink cartridges and upload the software connection. I believe that the time frame from taking it out of the box and having it ready to go was under 10 minutes. Very easy to have the printer begin functioning.The quality of the printing was very clear and crisp but I would not have expected anything else. The name Lexmark has been around for more than 25 years. While it has had different owners since its inception the quality has not been diminished.One feature that I believe that I like is the size of the ink cartridges. Their size gives the impression that you will not need to exchange cartridges very often. While I cannot guarantee this to be the case as I have not run low on any ink at this time I am basing my thoughts on the size. Another interesting and important factor is that each color has its own ink cartridge so you would only need to change the one that has the lowest ink level. I am assuming that this also helps to reduce the cost of replacing the ink.Another feature that is good is the speed in which the printer can print out a multi-page document. I printed out copies of my tax paperwork and in printed everything out in less than two minutes.As far as my thoughts about improving this printer I must say that based on the size of the printer I expected more functions to be available such as copying and scanning. For a basic printer I would have thought that it would be a lot smaller. I have other printers from other companies that only print and are more than half as small. An improvement would be to add features or decrease the size. I have a multi-function printer that is almost one third in size.Overall the quality is great, the time it takes to print out a document is quite fast, the time it took to get it running was amazing but the size for a basic printer was too large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark C3426dw printer I found the printer to be of high quality and very useful. I was able to print things out for my kids to do activities during this rough time. I was able to print papers I need to send or email or fax for myself or my mom. I do wish it came with a scanner than for of been more useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark C3426dw `I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion` The Lexmark printer prints clear and sharp photos and text. The colors are bright and very distinguishable . The words crisp and unlike inkjet printers which show dots and somewhat blurred photo prints. The onboard display window is my favorite feature where I can see all the stats I have ordered to be printed.Product assembly is little to none. Only the pink plastic sleeve protecting the color cartridge needed to be removed and the printer was plug and play and ready to go. I am satisfied with the fast printing and clear , crisp photos and colors. I would like this printer to be an all in one device, to save me space in my home office and only one device , performing all functions including print, copy, fax and scan. I would recommend this printer to anyone, who needs a laser color printer. It will be a great choice .I feel very positive about this printer, and it has met my needs in terms of printing clarity , picture and text sharpness and fast printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Work Horse I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. There are no words to say how impressed I am with this printer. The printer was so easy to install and use. There are easy step by step instructions and even came with a disk to set up wireless. The printing quality is very professional and can handle my work load. Prints very quick and smudge free. I am very happy with the printer and quality of work it produces. Would definitely recommend the printer to family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as I expected. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. There are some excellent things about this printer which I share at the end of this review. But... When I opened the box I was disappointed that there were no copy or scan capabilities. Once the protective packaging was removed I was ready to use the installation cd. The cd was broken with a piece cracked off of it. I attempted to use it in my drive to see if it would work for setup & it didn`t. I spent a couple of hours troubleshooting & looking for the proper installation software online for this model and couldn`t find it. My daughter loaned me her usb enabled cd drive and we finally got the cd to install. Once setup the printer makes amazing copies. We even set up the mobile Lexmark print app and are able to print from our phones. The color quality is impressive. I even printed out some photos to regular paper and was quite pleased with how beautiful they are. I would recommend this printer for quality printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality!! Wish it printed and scanned items not on the computer Now that I have the printer set up, I love it. I could not find the online instructions on how to get it to interact with my computer so I had to wait until after the weekend to call and get help. Although it was difficult to understand the help (I think the call center may have been in India) they were extraordinarily helpful and got the printer running like a champ. I wish I could use it to scan items as well as print items that are not on my computer. That is a major drawback in my opinion. Love the speed and quality of the printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not easy to set up but worth the effort I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. I consider myself to be a relatively tech savvy person and can follow directions, but there is no way I could have set this printer up myself. I was trying to connect it to a Mac laptop, and apparently all printer companies were having issues with Mac drivers. It took two calls to customer service to get the printer up and running, and a third call when I could not print again a day later. Everyone I spoke with at customer service was patient and helpful. Now that the printer is working, I can comment that the print quality looks great and it is perfect for my home office needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Color Printer I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion.The product prints very well and quickly. My favorite feature is the quality of color. It was easy to assemble, just take out of box and remove the packing tape. The product met my quality expectations, much better color print than other laser printers. I would have liked to have had better set up instructions though; written instructions along with the pictures. The pictures did not meet set up, download and install requirements. I had to go to the Lexmark website to find a phone number for tech assistance since the instructions did not have any other means of help. Once I had a person on the line, he tried to help, but I figured it out on my own. Yes I would recommend this machine to friends/family member but with better set up instructions. If there are no other instructions, then no. I wish it had a scanner however overall, I really like it and am very please with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I received this product in exchange for an unbiased opinion. It looks nice. It is very heavy compared to other laser jet printers. I was excited to use the WiFi feature as my other one is hard wired. The WiFi connection constantly went in and out regardless of my internet having no issues. It prints nicely but it is very loud. All I all This printer is decent for it`s intended use in a small office environment or home. I just hope the one I used was an isolated issue with the WiFi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark`s Latest Color Printer is Worth a Closer Look I`m a freelance artist with a home-based business.Color quality is essential to my work.But when it comes to making color prints and copies, I`ve always relied upon a local commercial printing house to handle such tasks - because frankly, I never found an affordable laser/color printer that could accurately produce & replicate colors to my personal satisfaction.But as it so happened just a few weeks ago, I was introduced to one of the latest of those such units to hit the market:The Lexmark C3426dw Wireless Color Laser Printer.Admittedly, I was quite curious to see just how far the latest technology had evolved in recent years.. so, I gave this one a closer look.. I decided to give it a 7-day trial.And I must say, the results surprised me.Colors rendered by the C3426 appeared rich, vivid, evenly-hued, and well-balanced.The color copies produced by this machine delivered the same stunning results; brilliant, true-to-life colors.Moreover, color-contrasts looked sharp and clean, without appearing exaggerated.Immediately absent were the off-putting issues such as yellowing & color-bleeding, typically found in color printers of yore.Now, some users might complain that this particular unit is too heavy, or that it hogs too much counter space.To be sure, the Lexmark C3426 is no toy.It`s not exactly lightweight, and not tiny either.But I found it to be a substantially-built unit overall, as well as perfectly sized for my own home-office.Its `Energy Star` rating is yet another plus.The `cons` I found in the C3426 were few, and none were deal breakers.- The paper tray seemed a bit flimsy, which frankly was rather unexpected to see in an otherwise reasonably-solid unit.- The control pad keys were challenging to use, due to their diminutive size.- The left-hand side keyboard felt slightly awkward; instead, a central or right-sided location would`ve been preferable. - This unit`s overall weight can be a pro OR a con, depending on one`s preference - personally, I found it to be the former.That said, the paper tray does offer easy access - also, it`s a breeze to refill, and is probably sturdy enough for most users, provided they don`t get too ham-fisted with it.All-in-all, I found the Lexmark C3426 to be a terrific color printer that offers outstanding value for a mid-range unit.Without hesitation, I recommend it to other small-biz owners.No, it`s not a perfect machine.But with colors this brilliant, perfection itself can`t be too far away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality printing but very problematic in set up and performance I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. I had a great deal of problems getting this printer to work on my Dell All-in-One computer. To begin with, my AIO does NOT have a CD/DVD drive, and so I tried to download the drivers/etc., from the Lexmark website. After multiple failures, I tried installing from the files copied off the CD on my husband`s computer which has a disk drive onto a thumb drive. I still had issues with the drivers not being recognized. I called Lexmark`s customer support twice and spent a long time with them, and even the Level 2 person could not get the drivers to work on my AIO. With CS`s help, I was able to get the printer recognized on our network via wireless, and the printer was recognized on my husband`s computer, a laptop computer and my smartphone. Lexmark`s CS said it was a Windows error and didn`t offer any solutions, and I kind of felt they dropped me without any solutions. If I hadn`t had these issues, I would have rated it higher as the print quality is good and the speed of printing is really fast, and I love that the double-sided printing works well.The good: My husband`s computer is quite a distance away, and he is able to print easily. The photos printed out are super crisp and clear. The printer`s speed is really fast. I love the double-sided printing. Good quality printing. The bad: Never being able to get the printer recognized on my AIO computer. Not being able to successfully install a driver on my AIO computer. No solutions or a key code for those of us who don`t have a disk drive to get the installation to work. On my laptop and on my smartphone, I have received many errors, and there are no references on how to fix the errors. I try to print photos from my smartphone, and that request fails about 70-80% of the time. The printer is super noisy when it warms up .. it makes a sick-engine sound and is noisier that I would like and the warm up takes longer than I would like as well. The drop-down tray where you insert the toners has a really cheap or flimsy feel. I wish it had a % amount on the toner/supplies (status of toner left).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Potentially Good but Troubled from the Start and their Tech Support Checked Out I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. Please see belowThis product was received as a test and review opportunity. It seems to have a lot of potential but alas that potential is still somewhat pent up. Having networked many printers and other peripherals previously I tried networking the printer via supplied CD driver disk and WIFI. This requires a CDROM drive which is a peripheral for most modern laptop users. Us included. Luckily we had one to use, but the driver disk did not function to help setup the printer. QR codes supplied were not active as of this review. Upon going to the company drivers page the product is too new drivers were not available as of this review. Tried using the printer IP address networking it on 2G and 5G wifi networks using WPS, and trying the built in print utilities on our PC and rival operating system computers no names allowed. No luck. Called the company and was on hold for a good bit via their tech support. The lady was nice and remoted into our computer had us run some printer diagnostics. She determined that we had tried everything on our end that could be done and finally determined the firmware was outdated. She suggested we could begin the firmware update process via an ethernet cable or a printer cable which due to advancing tech we have neither. She decided to escalate it because we don`t have ethernet ports on our laptops and have not owned a printer cable since the aughts. After escalation she asked for some additional reports to be printed and scanned to her which we did. After 3 followup emails to her for info on how things were progressing and further direction on how the matter would come to a resolution she never answered our emails. After the process proving to be lengthy we cannot justify calling in again to wait on a long hold for the ball to possibly be dropped a second time. We did do some additional ninth level networking ninja magic on our own. Now it works at a basic level. Printouts are nice. Runs slow without updated firmware and proper drivers. We are enjoying the color printouts and relatively large capacity of using the toner as a medium compared to our other business printer which is an inkjet. The color printouts are clear. It is funny because it will throw one of many error prompts sporadically on the printer screen and sometimes it still does on send one to either laptop of the two operating systems that we employ. However it works and it seems to be updating and working more consistently with time. Thus we have grown somewhat attached to it as it seems to have a mind of its own and although obstinate at least makes an effort to be useful despite big challenges early on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Standard Printer I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. Out of the box, it was fairly easy to set up and did not take long. Printing speed is pretty fast and the printing quality is excellent. Printing noise is not as quiet as I would prefer. I really like that is a wireless printer, as it fit into my existing computer set up well. Although having color is a nice option, 95% of my printing is not color, so I could do without this feature. I would prefer the size to be more compact, as it`s somewhat bulky & heavy than my previous printer. Overall, I think this a good printer for home use and gets the job done well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Printer Overall, I am very pleased with this printer. It was easy to connect to my WIFI and get started with printing. I really like the fact that this is a wireless printer which makes it very easy for printing to be done from multiple devices. This is a good quality printer and makes good quality prints as wells. The documents were clear and very easy to read. I would recommend this product to someone looking for a high performing, good quality printer for their small business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prints well, connectivity an issue I would like to tell you about my experiences with the Lexmark C3426 color printer. I got it home and unboxed. There`s a CD for installation but my computer doesn`t have a CD drive so that was a little problem. I was able to find directions online and was able to sync my computer with the printer. Directions in the box for that would have been nice. I was also able to set up the wireless function but again, without directions in the box I had to hunt around the Internet to make it happen. I was very pleased with the copies the printer made. Clear words and pictures, nice color. The printer is kinda loud but that`s not a big deal for me. For what this printer does, it`s very good. I was disappointed that the printer doesn`t have a copy or scan function. I thought all printers had those these days. I also had some problems with the printer`s wireless functions. It kept on losing the connection and I had to reconnect it often. That shouldn`t be necessary. So, to summarize, this printer makes very good copies. If you have CD drive on your computer you shouldn`t have any trouble with connections. If not, be forewarned, you might have some trouble. Please keep in mind that I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent printer! I`m home office based, often traveling the country to sales presentations, and have often found myself constantly going to the print center and having them print my presentations and sell sheets. It has just not become a sustainable practice. I needed a reliable wireless color printer that didn`t take up much space. One that would compare to what the print center offered in terms of quality. I was impressed with the ease of set up of the and didn`t use the Ap or the CD. It didn`t need any drivers installed and was immediately found on my wireless network. It was unboxed and printing in less than 10 minutes. It prints fast, quiet and with great color quality. I enjoy that it goes to sleep when not in use and is responsive to wake up quickly after I click print. Ample paper storage as well. I received this product in exchange for an honest review and could not be any happier with it. I`m saving money and time without sacrificing quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color Laser printer workhorse I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinionDo you need a reliable color laser printer If you already have a multi-function printer then you may want to consider the Lexmark C3426dw. As a field consultant operating out of a relatively small home office equipment that can offer my company more than a single function is something I normally value. The disadvantage with these devices however is that they often sacrifice quality over quantity. This high-quality color laser printer is worth a closer look if print quality and reliability is important to your business. Ive had the printer about a month or so and had ample time to use it printing envelopes labels duplex multipage color and BW print jobs and have noted a few of my observations below.PROsSuper fast printingQuick wake up from energy saver sleep modeRelatively quiet operationally Print quality is crystal clear with rich true tonal color qualityWide variety of supported paper types and weightsEasy to use single sheet envelope manual feeder located at front of printerSmall footprint overall dimensions are w16.0 x d15.0 x h9.25 inchesConvenient touchscreen digital screen on deviceFull featured mobile app for remote printing optionsUnconventional fresh contemporary design. White base as opposed to typical black plastic housing seen on most printersCONsPersonally I found it a little difficult to set up but that is probably because I did not initially have access to the users manual now available on Lexmark website as html or pdf. The installation CD that accompanied the printer did not have a manual and it took several attempts to get everything working properly. This is a VERY heavy printer approximately 40 lbs or 18 kgs about twice the weight of my multifunction BW laser printer. Have something sturdy to place this on.Paper tray only holds 250 sheets half a standard ream of paper but device does have the option of adding a SECOND 250 sheet tray directly under the machine which is awesome and a PRO.I have never owned a Lexmark device and I have to admit after my initial difficulty installing and setting it up I was a bit skeptical. However the actual ease of use pleasant appearance and print quality has changed my opinion and I would recommend this printer without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful lexmark printer The printer was easy to remove from the box and setup. Total setup time was around 8 minutes. I do work from home part of the time so having a good quality printer is key. this Lexmark fits that perfectly. Copies are crisp in color and detail. Having WIFI is nice that anyone can print on the network. My college student son has used this printer for his projects for school as well. this is a great color Laser printer that does not break the bank. Works great for small business or home looking to have a higher print capability. printing detail is awesome and crisp.I have used this printer a lot working from home for the last several weeks and it has not skipped a beat.I would strongly suggest that you give this printer a strong look!

I have a multi-function printer that is almost one third in size.Overall, the quality is great, the time it takes to print out a document is quite fast, the time it took to get it running was amazing but the size for a basic printer was too large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality printing but very problematic in set up and performance Once review is copied, click the link(s) below and paste your review.I had a great deal of problems getting this printer to work on my Dell All-in-One computer. To begin with, my AIO does NOT have a CD/DVD drive, and so I tried to download the drivers/etc., from the Lexmark website. After multiple failures, I tried installing from the files copied off the CD on my husband`s computer which has a disk drive onto a thumb drive. I still had issues with the drivers not being recognized. I called Lexmark`s customer support twice and spent a long time with them, and even the Level 2 person could not get the drivers to work on my AIO. With CS`s help, I was able to get the printer recognized on our network via wireless, and the printer was recognized on my husband`s computer, a laptop computer and my smartphone. Lexmark`s CS said it was a Windows error and didn`t offer any solutions, and I kind of felt they dropped me without any solutions. If I hadn`t had these issues, I would have rated it higher as the print quality is good and the speed of printing is really fast, and I love that the double-sided printing works well.The good: My husband`s computer is quite a distance away, and he is able to print easily. The photos printed out are super crisp and clear. The printer`s speed is really fast. I love the double-sided printing. Good quality printing. The bad: Never being able to get the printer recognized on my AIO computer. Not being able to successfully install a driver on my AIO computer. No solutions or a key code for those of us who don`t have a disk drive to get the installation to work. On my laptop and on my smartphone, I have received many errors, and there are no references on how to fix the errors. I try to print photos from my smartphone, and that request fails about 70-80% of the time. The printer is super noisy when it warms up .. it makes a sick-engine sound and is noisier that I would like and the warm up takes longer than I would like as well. The drop-down tray where you insert the toners has a really cheap or flimsy feel. I wish it had a % amount on the toner/supplies (status of toner left).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color Laser printer workhorse - good for high volume home and small offices Please note: I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinionDo you need a reliable color laser printer? If you already have a multi-function printer then you may want to consider the Lexmark C3426dw. As a field consultant operating out of a relatively small home office, equipment that can offer my company more than a single function is something I normally value. The disadvantage with these devices however, is that they often sacrifice quality over quantity. This high-quality color laser printer (only) is worth a closer look if print quality and reliability is important to your business. I`ve had the printer about a month or so, and had ample time to use it printing envelopes, labels, duplex, multi-page color and black/white print jobs and have noted a few of my observations below.PRO`s-Super fast printing-Quick wake up from energy saver/sleep mode-Relatively quiet operationally (especially important with big print jobs!)-Print quality is crystal clear (as one would expect from a laser printer), with rich, true tonal color quality-Wide variety of supported paper types and weights-Easy to use single sheet/envelope manual feeder located at front of printer-Small footprint - overall dimensions are w:16.0 x d:15.0 x h:9.25 inches-Convenient touchscreen digital `home` screen (on device)-Full featured mobile app for remote printing options-Unconventional fresh contemporary design (white base as opposed to typical black plastic housing seen on most printers)CON`s-Personally I found it a little difficult to set up, but that is probably because I did not initially have access to the user`s manual (now available on Lexmark website as html or pdf). The installation CD that accompanied the printer did not have a manual and it took several attempts to get everything working properly. -This is a VERY heavy printer (approximately 40 lbs/18 kgs), about twice the weight of my multi-function B/W laser printer. Have something sturdy to place this on.-Paper tray only holds 250-sheets (half a standard ream of paper), but device does have the option of adding a SECOND 250-sheet tray directly under the machine, which is awesome (and a PRO!)I`ve never owned a Lexmark device, and I have to admit after my initial difficulty installing and setting it up, I was a bit skeptical. However, the actual ease of use, pleasant appearance and print quality has changed my opinion and I would recommend this printer without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion I noramlly go out to work but now working from home. This is a great wireless laser color printer. I usaully have to take my daughter to the library to print things out for class but now she can print her class art work from home. One feature I am excited about is I can be in my office and print right from computer without having to stop and go to turn on the printer. I also love the that I can download the app to my phone and print imporant email as I get them straight from my phone. The only bad thing I would say is it took me a while to get it setup the instructions are very vague but when I called customer service they were able to set it up for me with no problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark`s Latest Color Printer is Worth a Closer Look I`m a freelance artist with a home-based business.Color quality is essential to my work.But when it comes to making color prints and copies, I`m always alive on local commercial printing houses to handle such tasks for my small-biz needs - because frankly, I`ve never found an affordable laser/color printer that can produce & replicate colors to my own personal satisfaction.But just a few weeks ago, I was introduced to one of the latest such units on the market today:The Lexmark C3426dw Wireless Color Laser Printer.I`ll admit, I was quite curious to see just how far these units have evolved in recent years.So I decided to take a closer look at this one.I gave it a 7-day trial.The results were all I`d hoped for.Colors rendered by the Lexmark C3426dw appeared rich, vivid, and true-to-life.Gone were the annoyances of yellowing and color-bleeding typically found in color printers of yesteryear.Some users might complain that this unit is too heavy, or that it hogs too much counter space.To be sure, the C3426dw is no toy.It`s not lightweight, and not tiny either.But I found it to be substantially built, in general, and perfectly-sized for my home office.Its `Energy Star` rating is yet another plus.While I did find a few minor `cons`, I thought none to be deal-breakers.- paper tray seems a bit flimsy- left-hand location keyboard display feels slightly awkward- control pad keys are tiny and therefore challenging to useThat being said, the paper tray itself still offers easy access, it`s a breeze to refill, and probably sturdy enough for most users, provided they don`t get too ham-fisted with it.All-in-all, Lexmark`s C3426dw is a terrific color printer that offers outstanding value for its range.And I would not even hesitate to recommend this model to others.No, it`s not `the perfect printer`..but with colors rendered this well, perfection itself can`t be too far away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark C3426w I have received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. Printer was heavier than expected, but manageable and easy to place/position. Set up was easy enough. Printer comes with clear illustrated instructions for initial set up. Full set up and computer connection required a CD, this posed a problem as my laptop, and most laptops/PC`s are not CD comparable... for like the past 5 years. I was able to access the needed instructions and plug ins via a website. No big hassle, but may be time to re-evaluate set up. Might as well included a mix cassette tape for that matter. No bells and whistles, standard, no frills printer. I thought it had a copying feature, but I thought wrong. Print speed and quality was high and impressive. Printer fits the need for a small business or home office easily. Cost point is on par with its competition and market. All around it fits my needs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality and very fast I received this product in exchange for an honest review. The printer is very easy to hook up initially. The wireless feature worked right away with my home network and other devices throughout the house. The best feature is how fast this prints full color pages (even two-sided), and the quality is much better than my inkjet printer. Overall, I`m very pleased with it and no longer need to go to an office supply store for professional looking flyers and presentations. I do wish it was multi-functional to include a scanner and copier. Other than that, I`m very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGH QUALITY FAST PRINTING DONE EASILY I received this printer in exchange for an honest review.Out of the box, this printer was more sturdy and heavier than my previous printers, and it did not disappoint. It took only a minute to set up and start printing. Print quality blew me away! The ink is easy to install as well as the paper. I am very impressed with how clean and colorful the print quality is.It connected readily with my WiFi and I have had no problems or concerns since I started using this wonderful printer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite The Little Workhorse (Lexmark C3426dw Wireless Color Laser Printer): Please note I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion.If you`re looking for a one line review I`d say: `Overall I`m very impressed with the output capability, simplicity of use and print quality of this machine.`When the printer first arrived in its box I was a little skeptical due its size. It seemed small but when I lifted the box I realized it had some weight to it. After unboxing it you could just tell it was a well-constructed, sturdy yet compact machine.Setup was a breeze. Took less than 30 minutes total. Rather than load the driver through the CD that was provided I was able to locate it easily on Lexmark`s website and install it from there. After physically setting the printer up in my office I realized I didn`t have a hardline USB long enough to reach my computer`s input port. However, the obvious fix was connecting through Wifi which is a huge plus for this machine. Especially if you wanted to print from multiple devices throughout the house. There are a bunch of different ways to wirelessly connect to the printer depending on your preferences (Wifi Direct Connect, WPS Protected, etc.).The digital display on the printer is large enough to easily read and is very convenient for assisting with the setup process and checking job status. The printer has a standard 8.5` x 11` paper tray which can be adjusted to accommodate smaller sizes and a manual feed slot for larger prints. The speed of the machine can easily accommodate a high-volume single user or moderate volume small work group (25+ sheets a minute). The duplex printing also works well and the quality of prints is more than adequate for my needs (color reports, memos and worksheets). I haven`t had a paper jam yet but there seems to be enough access points to adequately address one if it did occur.There are a few cons. The printer cartridges, which there are numerous, are very expensive. My guess is you`ll end up spending much more on toner versus the cost of the machine itself over its lifetime. During setup make sure you remove all of the plastic tabs from them prior to printing. Another con is the vibrancy of image prints. If you`re a graphic artist or in some other profession where the quality of image is more crucial than output capability or convenience this may not be the printer for you. The printer is heavy so I wouldn`t consider it very portable. Once you find a place for it leave it there. Overall this printer is what it says it is. A quality single function duplex color printer meant to serve a small work group. If this is what you are looking for I`d highly recommend it. Please note I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexmark C3426w I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. This is the perfect printer for a busy home or small office. The quality and speed at which it prints anything from documents to full page pictures is phenomenal. Setting it up didn`t take much time at all as all it required was removing some tape and a quick connection to the wifi as the cartridges were already installed and ready to go. One of my favorite features of this connectivity is that the printer provides direct access to google drive, Dropbox, and one-drive accounts making queuing jobs much more versatile. A few downsides is that the printer is very heavy and the only way to install the initial drivers was through a disk. However, as this is a test product, it will receive online drivers in the future, it was just difficult to find a working CD tray. All in all, if you want to increase productivity, this tech savvy, compact workhorse of a printer is definitely an option that I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Potentially Good but Troubled from the Start and their Tech Support Checked Out I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. Please see below.This product was received as a test and review opportunity. It seems to have a lot of potential but alas that potential is still somewhat pent up. Having networked many printers and other peripherals previously I tried networking the printer via supplied CD driver disk and WIFI. This requires a CDROM drive which is a peripheral for most modern laptop users. Us included. Luckily we had one to use but the driver disk did not function to help setup the printer. QR codes supplied were not active as of this review. Upon going to the company drivers page the product is too new. Drivers were not available as of this review. Tried using the printer IP address networking it on 2 G and 5 G WIFI networks using WPS and trying the built in print utilities on our PC and rival operating system computers. No names allowed. No luck. Called the company and was on hold for a good bit via their tech support. The lady was nice and remoted into our computer had us run some printer diagnostics. She determined that we had tried everything on our end that could be done and finally determined the firmware was outdated. She suggested we could begin the firmware update process via an ethernet cable or a printer cable which due to advancing tech we have neither. She decided to escalate it because we do not have ethernet ports on our laptops and have not owned a printer cable since the aughts. After escalation she asked for some additional reports to be printed and scanned to her which we did. After 3 followup emails to her for info on how things were progressing and further direction on how the matter would come to a resolution she never answered our emails. The process proved to be lengthy and we cannot justify calling in again to wait on a long hold for the ball to possibly be dropped a second time. We did do some additional ninth level networking ninja magic on our own. Now it works at a basic level. Printouts are nice. Runs slow without updated firmware and proper drivers. We are enjoying the color printouts and relatively large capacity of using the toner as a print medium compared to our other business printer which is an inkjet. The color printouts are clear. It is funny because it will throw one of many error prompts sporadically on the printer screen and sometimes it still does send one to either laptop of the two operating systems that we employ. However it works and it seems to be updating and working more consistently with time. Thus we have grown somewhat attached to it as it seems to have a mind of its own and although obstinate at least makes an effort to be useful despite big challenges early on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install, Crisp Printing, and Great Colors I`m really liking this printer. It was easy to setup and install, including the WiFi connection.

The efficiency is great for my home office. I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent business printer Excellent business printer for small to mid-size office or business unit. Set up via the Lexmark mobile set up app was not fun at all. Once the set up was successfully completed the printer worked perfectly. Assuming the color print quality is for mostly business documents It`s efficient, fast and seems to be a saver on ink cartridges. Print quality is definitely not good enough for digital photo printing or high resolution color images.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Printer I received this product in exchange for my unbiased opinion. This is a nice printer. It was quick and easy to set up, especially for someone who is not very advanced in technology. The pictures come out very crisp and clear. The color quality is amazing. It can print very quickly, and can finish large jobs in a short amount of time. I was very impressed by the size of the ink cartridges. I love how large they are, and that they won`t need to be replaced as often as in other printers of this size. However, the size of the printer is the only con I can think of. It is very large and heavy for a basic printer. Typically, printers of this size can scan/copy. This printer only prints. Otherwise, this is a great printer and I would definitely recommend it!
