Our review

The essential to remember

The Lexmark MC3224dwe is similar to the Lexmark MC3224adwe tested on dev.rankuzz.com. The only differences: she sacrifices the automatic document feeder, the fax function and the USB port on the front of her big sister.

For the rest, it retains the qualities of the MC3224adwe such as its printing and scanning speeds. Unfortunately, it also takes back its faults which are an imposing template (41.1 x 39.4 x 30.7 cm), despite a reduced height, and above all a very high cost per page (23.3 euro cents) in color and 5.3 euro cents in black and white).

The essential to remember


If the Lexmark MC3224dwe - version without automatic document feeder and fax function of the MC3224adwe that we tested - had everything to suit the most intensive uses thanks to its good print speeds, it was without counting its cost at the high page. The latter, which does not fit into the final mark of the Lexmark MC3224dwe, makes investing in a Canon G6050 more interesting after approximately 1,000 pages printed in color. Beyond that, the inkjet printer without cartridges will cost you much less thanks to its included ink and its cost per page almost 30 times lower than that of the Lexmark. What to think about giving up the advantages of a laser printer.
