Lexmark Colour Multifunction Laser Printer MC3326ADWE $289.99 @ Costco (Membership Required)

220

Recently had a printer die and have been convinced to go down the Laser route.

Came across this highly rated product, at what seems a great price.

Also appears to be much more compact than many laser multifunction printers.

Main negative is that the provided toner cartridges are not "full size" so users may be required to replace toner sooner than some other products on market

FYI for posterity, it also was on promotion at mwave for $299 but that expired yesterday https://www.mwave.com.au/product/lexmark-mc3326adwe-a4-wirel...

I'm not a Costco member so havent actually picked this up, but sharing as it seemed like a great entry into the laser market

    Yep, the full-size toner set will cost about $400 however I can voucher for the quality of these little machines as I got my Dad one (a very similar previous model) 3+ years ago with a set of full-size toners and he's still using it today… and still probably won't need to worry about toner for another 3 years ;)

      Doesn't really mean much when you don't specify how many pages ur dad go through a day/week/month/year.

      Buy compatible toners, cheap and you won’t notice the difference

    •  

      Refill your own printer cartridges by drilling holes, funnel in ink, seal up holes with silicon plugs - see YouTube. Dirt cheap.

  •  

    I haven't looked recently, but I suspect most printers still come with a limited cartridge out of the box, with a full size replacement usually costing a surprising percentage of the overall printer cost.
    But good thing with laser is unless you're smashing out the prints, you'll probably find even the small cartridge shipped with the unit will last a while. And no drying out, of course.

      I figured for occasional home use this will be fine.

      If I had this in an office I might do a bit more research (but probably still end up with this at this price)

    This PCMag review indicates that it supports duplex printing which is a pleasant surprise, however it doesn't support duplex scanning.

    •  

      Yep that review really sold me on it at that price point (FYI i think the $$ listed in that article are $USD not $AUD)

    How much are 3rd party toners?

    •  

      A quick search on ebay didn't show any at all.

    What do you guys print ?

    It is a Lexmark. No bargain if the toner costs a fortune :-(

    Don't be a chump, get a Brother (or any printer that does not lock out 3rd party toner).

    •  

      Many of us have never looked at laser before - who doesn't lock out 3rd party?

        Whatever printer you are interested in, google for toner prices. For Lexmark I only see original and $$$.

        Brother has been good to me, but check the particular model.

        Brother and fuji to name a few, just don't be confused with xerox phaser that has partnership with fuji but use chip on their toner. On the other spectrum, avoid hp like a plague because they're notorious in this regard.

        Lexmark are even worse. They even lock out their own genuine cartridges if bought from a different country.

    To save anyone else a google this does come with Ethernet, USB-B and USB-A.

  •  

    It's $249.99 in store. The model said C3326DW so I'm assuming it is the same thing.

    •  

      C3326DW is a different product from a quick google - printer only, not multifunction with scanner

  •  

    Will this print direct from iPhone?
    Thanks,

    •  

      Yes, through Airprint.

    I'm after a new MFC as my old Brother does not support Windows 10 so have lost scanning and PC to Fax ability. And, yes some people do still use Fax especially if dealing with Japanese companies.

    As a colour laser MFC this is a good price and around $100 cheaper than ebay.

    But the lack of compatible cartridges, and a full set costing over $400 makes this quite expensive to run at 25-30 cents per page.

    If you need an MFC for limited colour printing this is ok.

    Costco also has the B&W version for $229.99 delivered.
    https://www.costco.com.au/TVs-Electronics-Technology/Compute...

    The running costs for this using the high capacity cartridges is around the 4c per page.

    I'm going to keep looking for a better MFC deal this black Friday.

      Any luck?

        If you are after a basic machine with flatbed scanner the Brother MFC-L2710DW 4-in-1 Mono Laser Wireless Printer is around $248 delivered, but it seems to be no cheaper than pre black Friday. It does duplex printing, but only single side at a time scanning.

        The 2710DW has compatible toners available @ 2 for less than $30 delivered, giving 3000 pages each. And Compatible drums are also under $30 delivered giving 12,000 pages.

        So toner cost is under 1/2 a cent per page, and drum under 1/4 a cent per page.

        Total cost per page is under 1 cent.
