Summary: I bought this printer for large printing jobs I have at home from time to time. After a while I started getting black blobs printing out rather that the picture I was hoping for. It also does not pick up photo paper that well.
Fine Enough but Nothing Amazing. Would be better with WiFi capability

Summary: Alright, it prints and does that relatively quietly and nicely compared with most noisy ink jet printers but, common, why wouldn't you add wireless printing as a default on every printer? It could be better, oh, and smaller too. Why do laser printes always need to be bulky anchors?
Summary: Bought this printer to use with a Mac. Product description says it's Mac compatible. Printer arrived with a driver CD for Windows but not Mac. Dell website shows a Mac driver but the link is broken. When I used the "chat" function with customer support they asked for my email and phone number twice, then told me "because you purchased this online, you will need to fill out an ownership transfer form.
Great printing but it goes to sleep and stays asleep

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. If you plan to use it attached to your PC then it's great, but if you use a network printer hub then you may be in for trouble.
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. I've broken the rest of my review into 2 parts; pro's and con's respectively. Pros.
