Summary: The Dell 1250c, which costs around Rs. 17,000, comes in a compact package and provides decent energy savings. In terms of price per print, however, an inkjet MFD would be more economical. An inkjet MFD would also deliver better print resolution, and would include copier, scanner and fax functions along with networking options, all at a lower price.
Summary: The Dell 1250c colour laser printer impresses with its excellent print quality, and its small size will make it popular among those who are short on space. It's slow, though, and its running costs are relatively high.
Cons: No display; USB connectivity only; colour printing is expensive.
Conclusion: The Dell 1250c is a great little printer, but I think it will fill a very niche role in the SOHO or SMB markets due to its limited connectivity and lack of standalone features. Of course, those happen to also be the 1250c's best features as a desktop printer because it brings down the initial cost, it makes for a simpler navigation and takes up less space.
Cons: Only offers USB connection, No standalone capacity
Excerpt: (1 items) The Dell 1250c color printer uses LED technology instead of the more-common laser to create equally crisp results. Priced at just $230, it makes color output seem attainable even for a home office. Unfortunately, exorbitant toner costs make this printer unbearably pricey in the long term. Printer vendors often charge lower-volume users less for the printer and more for the toner, but Dell has set a new record with this model.
Pros: Nice color quality
Cons: Severely overpriced toner, Control-panel lights are difficult to interpret
