You can only buy the Lexmark CX725de through authorized resellers. However, many resellers include big-box retailers like Staples. The CX725de is priced at a relatively affordable $2,739.59.

Lexmark includes a base limited warranty with the purchase of this color copier, and you can purchase other extended warranties separately. The base warranty lasts for 12 months from the date of purchase. The company recommends that you only use genuine Lexmark supplies, meaning ink and toner, with this all-in-one machine.

The Lexmark CX725de is a multifunction color copier and digital printer. Users can scan, print, copy and fax, all from one machine. This Lexmark model is built for businesses with medium to large workgroups. It prints and copies at 50 pages per minute in black and white or color. It accommodates a variety of paper sizes, from envelopes to legal-size paper.

The input tray holds 650 sheets, while the multipurpose feeder can hold up to 100 sheets. You can also expand the tray to fit a maximum of 2,300 sheets of paper. The CX725de is built to withstand a high-volume output; its monthly duty cycle is 150,000 pages, one of the higher pages-per-cycle among the color copiers and printers we evaluated.

The CX725de prints documents very quickly. It produces color copies in 7 seconds, 6.6 seconds for black-and-white documents. You can reduce images down to 25 percent of their original size or, conversely, maximize images up to 400 percent their original size.

The CX725de comes with a range of user-friendly features. It has a 7-inch color display that you activate with your fingertip or a pen. Duplexing is fully integrated. Beyond the standard USB connectivity, the CX725de offers Ethernet with an option for wireless. There's a 1.2-GHz quad-core processor inside with 4GB of RAM.

The CX725de is designed to help protect businesses from cyberthreats, with integrated security features such as secure remote management, Active Directory integration, encrypted hard disks and more.

The company website offers a library of support documentation that includes a manual, a knowledgebase and tips and tricks for troubleshooting specific issues. If you can't find your answer online, you can live chat with a representative, email or call Lexmark (9 a.m. to 9 p.m., EST, Monday through Friday) for help.

While the CX725de offers great value and is capable of high volume, the cost may be out of reach for a standard small business.
