Speed, paper handling, and output quality are all factors in choosing an office laser printer. The Lexmark C782n is fairly fast and has good print quality but its forte is paper handling. It comes with the trays and accessories to deal with huge printing volumes, as is fitting for a printer with a 150,000 page monthly duty cycle.
The C782n has a 600e-sheet capacity, divided between a 500-sheet drawer and a 100-sheet multipurpose tray. Other configurations add a duplexer and a second 500-sheet tray; an optional 2,000-sheet feeder can boost capacity to an astounding 3,100 sheets. Stapling, finishers, output and banner media tray, mailboxes, envelope drawers, and other accessories are available. Unsurprisingly, this is a hefty machine at 20.8 by 23.8 by 18.5 inches (HWD) and 105 pounds.
The C782n’s rated 40 ppm for monochrome printing and 35 ppm for color, borne out on our tests, also befits large volume printing. It’s clear, though, that the C782n favors speed over output quality. Its text, though subpar for a laser, is fine for business use. Graphics were adequate for internal use, though you might not want to send them to key clients. Photos were fine for light office needs.
If your office prints in bulk, the C782n should be on your laser printer short list.Lexmark C782n ReviewPrice range: $1,299Check This Out:Xerox Phaser 8860 Color Printer Review: A $2,500 Bargain Color LaserBrother MFC-240C: Another Multifunction PrinterSamsung SCX-4521F: Multifunction Printer
