Summary: The jamming isn't as bad as I originally thought, actually non-existent at this point.. but the print quality is still pretty poor. See the attached photo I printed, those white spots occur on about 1 out of every 5 prints.. the banding and streaking also..
Pros: Cheap! Low-cost color laser printing.. I was excited to give it a shot!
Cons: I've had it out of the box 10 minutes, but it's already jammed twice. I've read other complaints about this but was optimistic. It's a little loud, fans run for about 5 minutes after printing. The printed images are better than inject, and look like laser color.. but not the best quality prints.
Great printing but it goes to sleep and stays asleep
5 December 2012
Summary: I bought one of these a few weeks ago (for £49!) and it is a really great printer when it's awake! However it is inclined to go to sleep, then deep sleep then die! The only way to wake it is to press the start button or in some cases power cycle it.
Summary: The Dell 1250c offers a low cost introduction to colour laser printing. As someone who has owned laser printers for several years, the 'lifetime' drum and fuser promising hassle free use was its largest attraction, especially since the print volume i require has reduced substantially recently.
