Product Description

Powerful yet easy to use, the Lexmark C524 offers industry-leading colour quality, faster print speeds, lots of flexible options, and more ways than ever to control costs! Network model, includes automatic duplex printing to reduce paper waste, plus a second 500-sheet drawer to load various media types.

For your busy workgroup

Great colour quality comes at no compromise to performance. The C524 offers a multipurpose feeder to run diverse media. And it reaches print speeds of up to 19 ppm whether you’re printing in colour or mono!


Light costs

Big print runs don’t have to mean big expenses. To lower your cost per page, you can opt for the high-yield cartridges – up to 8K pages for mono, 5K for colour. Or for even greater savings, an automatic-duplex model to cut paper waste in half.


Quality with total control

Sometimes you need the unbeatable 4800 Colour Quality output. But for a lot of your everyday documents, mono or draft quality may be enough. Lexmark’s unique ColourCare technology – standard with the C524 – puts you in control. It includes: Colour-access restrictions via user login and password; Black-and-white lock modes for specific times of day; Proof-then-print feature to reduce waste; 3 toner-saver levels to economise toner by up to 50%; ColourSaver mode to lighten toner use on heavy images; Coverage estimator shows user cost of job before printing.


More possibilities

In addition to advanced security features, the network models are equipped with ImageQuick technology for fast, easy printing of Web-based documents. You can also benefit from other workflow-enhancing solutions, like Lexmark’s Document Accounting Solution and Distributed Print on Demand.
