It combines print, fax, scan and copy functions with a 1,200dpi engine, 30ppm print speeds and integral duplexing.
In the past, Lexmark has taken some flak from PC Pro for its high printing costs, but the CX410de bucks the trend.
We noted pin-sharp text and plenty of detail in colour photos. Colour balance and contrast are superb. Nor is the CX410de a slouch in the speed stakes, with an average time to first page of 11 seconds.
A 30-page Word document in both draft and photo/text modes took one minute, and a 24-page colour DTP document in photo mode printed at 30ppm. Copy speeds using the ADF are good, too: a ten-page document was duplicated in only 32 seconds. Best of all, scan quality is remarkably faithful, with no grain or banding. From the intuitive touchscreen, documents can be scanned to email, FTP servers, network shares or direct to a USB stick. A phone book keeps tabs on fax numbers, and the Printer Home utility lets you scan to any destination.

The reviewers say "It’s great value for money. The lack of any real cloud features count against it. For workgroups that demand the best print and scan quality, it’s highly recommended."
