Product Description

Work fast and run economically with the MX521ade, the fax-equipped up-to 46 page-per-minute* multifunction product with long-life components.

Lower fusing temperature and automatic management of processor cores based on workload help meet rigorous ENERGY STAR 2.0 requirements. That benefits the planet and your budget.

Get more done

When performance meets simplicity, you get more done. The intuitive 4.3-inch tablet-like colour touch screen makes your tasks easy and is the gateway to built-in productivity apps that save time and improve efficiency. With 46-page-per-minute printing, and a skilled scanner that can accurately capture up to 45 images per minute, even with mixed originals, you’ll get what you need in a flash.


The definition of clear text

Some laser printers struggle to print grey text that’s easy to read—not the MX520 series. Its innovative font outlining technology makes even the smallest grey text crisp and clear.


Dual-core power

A 1 GHz dual-core processor with 1 GB of standard memory gives you the power to do a combination of faxing, printing, copying, and scanning for maximum productivity. And you can be confident that your complex file with images, charts and small print will look just the way you designed it.


Ready when you are

Robust and reliable, Lexmark multifunction products are built to work anywhere from showroom to warehouse with few interventions. Keep going with long-life components, replacement cartridge yields up to 25,000 pages** and a maximum input capacity of 2000 pages.
