4-year guarantee

For an added level of peace of mind, you can benefit from 4-year guarantee coverage.

Production-class performance

A 1.33GHz quad core processor with 2GB of standard memory helps the CX827de handle complex jobs, while print speeds of up to 50 pages per minute allow users in high-volume print environments to get fast colour output. Even large color print jobs complete quickly so users are more productive.

Professional colour

Professional color features include ultra-sharp 4800 Color Quality, PANTONE calibration and spot color replacement for repeatable color accuracy even with critical corporate identity elements.

Solutions flexibility

Lexmark's Embedded Solutions Framework lets you run software solutions to meet the needs of your industry. Several solutions are included, and more can be added.

Advanced media handling

Expand your output capabilities with standard input capacity of up to 650 pages (expandable to 4,500), an optional in-line staple finisher, and the broadest range of media weights possible--from tissue-thin paper to thick card stock.


The 10.9 cm e-Task colour touch screen features an ultra-smooth surface that can be activated by almost anything, including pens, fingertips or nails--without pressure or direct skin contact.

Top-tier scanning

It starts with 1200 dpi CCD-based scan quality for colour and information accuracy, then adds automatic size sensing and ultrasonic multi-feed detection to ensure that every page intended for archiving or integration into your digital workflow is successfully scanned.
