Color You Can Count On

Get rich, vibrant color in seconds with Lexmark's unique Unison™ toner. With toner yields up to 1500 pages**, easy-to-change replacement cartridges for the MC3224adwe give you more printing and less downtime. And if you run out of color toner, you can keep printing in black.

Connectivity Central

In addition to Ethernet and USB connectivity, Wi-Fi makes it easy for mobile users to get output via the Lexmark Mobile Print app, as well as Mopria® and AirPrint technologies. And our new Wi-Fi setup wizard simplifies wireless configuration. Embedded workflow capabilities on the 2.8-inch (7.2 cm) e-Task touch screen include scan to network, scan to email and Lexmark's own Cloud Connector*** to help you integrate printing and scanning with popular cloud file storage services.

Measuring just 13.6 inches high x 16.2 inches wide x 15.5 inches deep (344.4 mm high x 411.2 mm wide x 394.1 mm deep), the MC3224adwe fits almost anywhere. Its compact size and light weight make it easy to ship, easy to set up and easy to move.
