Summary: I purchased this Dell 1250c printer based on the film Dell had praising this printer. I wish I had read the reviews first. Every now & then most now, the printer goes into error. I must take all the print films out of the computer, replace them then uninstall the print, log off then reinstall with the disk Dell sent me. I thought since I had a Dell 15 inch Inspiron laptop & a Dell 570 Inspiron Desktop that work great, I figured the Dell 1250c printer would be the same.
Summary: I have had this printer for over a year now. Things that are good about it are: It was easy to set up. If you want to print one copy of something on thin white paper, it works fine. Colour reproduction is okay. It hasn't complained of being out of ink/toner yet. Things that are not so good include: It attracts dust like a magnet. It makes a very annoying high-pitched noise when on.
Summary: Purchased 2 of these from Conrad for my children at uni. I chose these having had previously good results from a Dell 1320n laser printer. All of these models have low running costs when used with compatible cartridges. Unfortunately, I had not researched this printer well enough before purchasing. It has one major flaw:- Printer cannot be detected by PC, (here running Vista / Windows 7), when in "deep sleep" mode, when PC restarts from shutdown or from a restart cycle.
Summary: I was thinking of buying a colour laser printer for light office use and when by chance I was called buy *** and offered this printer, two complete sets of toner, free carriage and a Homemedics massage unit for under £88 I went for it. What could go wrong? Well, five months later and on my third unit at least it's working at last. I have soon discovered there's no point in asking "I wonder if it will ......?" The answer is no.
