Low list price. High maximum and recommended volume ratings. Strong security.
High running costs. Subpar color output. Lacks Wi-Fi Direct and NFC.
- BOTTOM LINE
The Lexmark C3224dw is a budget-friendly color laser printer with running costs that relegate it to low-volume offices.

Editors’ Rating: GOOD
The Lexmark C3224dw ($130) is an inexpensive color laser printer designed for home-based or small offices with moderate print volume. While it has similar volume ratings to and can handle the same amount of paper as the Editors’ Choice Brother HL-L3270CDW, its list price is about half as much. But that comes with a few catches: The C3224dw’s monochrome running costs are almost twice that of the Brother model, and its color output is subpar. If your small office is budget-strapped and needs a simple color laser for moderate-volume printing, the C3224dw is more than up to the task, but HL-L3270CDW is a better value proposition, and remains our Editors’ Choice.
