The Lexmark E340 printer is a laser printer designed primarily for commercial and office use. It boasts a print speed of 30 pages per minute and offers a 250 sheet paper tray. The Lexmark E340 is also intended to be used as a document printer, and does not perform well with photos or other graphics. The printer uses specialised cartridges to refill its ink supply. The Lexmark E340 toner cartridge is designed only for use with this printer and being a laser printer, it boasts accuracy and clarity in all of its printed documents.
The Lexmark E340 printer is designed for business and light commercial use, so its look is appropriate to that of an office setting. It is large and blocky, and comes in with a black and silver case. Its design is rather standard for an office laser printer and should adequately fit into any office environment. The technical design is also designed for ease of use. The Lexmark E340 toner cartridge snaps easily into place and can be removed just as easily. The paper tray is also of a rather simple design. It easily slides out to allow for a quick, 250 page refill.
One of the major advantages of the Lexmark E340 printer is the speed at which it can produce documents. A large paper tray and a quick print rate of 30 pages per minute ensure that even large orders will be finished quickly, thus also giving the printer additional functionality as a quick photocopier for small to moderate sized orders. And since the Lexmark E340 serves as a document printer, any and all documents sent to the printer will have sharp detail and a crisp look. The Lexmark E340 is a fine printer for producing attractive and clear documents.
Given that the Lexmark E340 is a document printer, it does not perform well when given tasks that incorporate images or graphics. And while it certainly it can produce images, it does not hold up well when compared to printers designed exclusively for images and photos. Also, the Lexmark E340 toner printer is not really intended to be used as anything but a mono laser document printer, so any other tasks you assign it might not be up to snuff. Therefore, while the Lexmark E340 is an excellent document printer, anyone looking for a printer that is a little more versatile might want to check elsewhere.
