Lexmark’s MC3224adwe Color Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP), Excellent, Though Costly, Output

Review of the Lexmark MC3224adwe at PCMag

  • PROS

    Excellent print quality. Robust connectivity and OS support.

  • CONS

    Expensive to use. No Wi-Fi Direct or NFC. ADF is not auto-duplexing. 

  • BOTTOM LINE

    The Lexmark MC3224adwe prints very well at respectable speeds, but high running costs and a manual-duplexing automatic document feeder render this color laser AIO a low-volume solution.

Lexmark’s recently released MC3224adwe ($399) is, like most entry-level color laser all-in-one (print, copy, scan, and fax) printers nowadays, facing some fierce competition. And not just from the seemingly glutted color laser AIO market, but also from comparable, less-expensive-to-use inkjet alternatives. These include our current low- to medium color AIO favorite, Epson’s WorkForce Pro WF-C5790. In any case, the MC3224adwe is, like so many models at this level, mostly an excellent machine with many things in common with our top pick. It prints well, for example, and is loaded with features. It also, like so many of its direct entry-level competitors, costs too much to use, which relegates it to, despite its high monthly duty cycle, a low-volume print and copy solution for small offices and workgroups.
