Bad Printer

Jonathan Fong, Amazon
5 May 2012
  • Summary: -Paper that it prints seems to curl in an upward looking way, making it harder to stack papers together or to stable neatly together.*most annoying feature*!! -Starting this printer takes too long. Have to wait a good minute or two before it is ready to start printing, but once it's ready, it's fast. -Heavy! -Cancel button sucks. When i print something out twice by accident, and try to cancel the print, it still prints it out. -Makes too much noise when it prints.

SLOW REACTION

Gman, Amazon
12 August 2007
  • Summary: This printer is very slow to print, but once it is started it runs great. The size of this thing is rediculous; my HP 4L took up less space and reaction time was quick. However this printer can take a beating and keep on printing. I have dropped several time from over 3 ft and it is still running. Toner cartridges are a bit expensive and only last 3000 pages.

Great First Network Printer

T. Osterman, Amazon
19 April 2007
  • Summary: I've had this printer for about two years now and love it. This was my first laser printer and replace an inkjet I had hooked to a network print server. Is the printer loud ... sure ... I guess, but it's fast and the noise doesn't bother me at all. Also, I don't think I've ever really had a paper jam. Plus I love that setup is quick in both windows and linux (gentoo). No complaints here.

Poor product

G. Pena "Gilbert", Amazon
21 November 2006
  • Summary: I bought this printer looking for a good price, but just one year later the printer was not working because of the mechanism to take the paper from the tray was broken, when I contact Dell they recomend me buy another one, because the guaranty have expired. I think this is a very fragile product.

Fast, efficient and good quality printing

J. Orozco, Amazon
10 March 2006
  • Summary: I bought this Dell to replace my Epson C86, I was sick and tired of paying so much money for ink replacement cartridges, slow sleed from my inkjet and also there is the fact that I hardly ever print a photo or need color, the Dell is extremely fast (compared to my Epson C86) with excellent text output (again compared to my C86) and a very low $1.7 cents cost per page average which is a hell of a lot cheaper than my Epson inkjet.

be wary

Max Rockbin, Amazon
15 February 2006
  • Summary: I bought the 1600n - which was the earlier multi-function version. After four firmware upgrades I still get frequent print errors. The manual feed never aligns correctly. New ink ain't cheap. I would read some critical reviews before I ever buy a Dell printer again.

Gets only one star because ZERO is not an option

bluegrasscat "bluegrasscat", Amazon
12 February 2006
  • Summary: Its a great printer. But the cartridges are exhorbitantly priced. Refill kits and reloaded carts are available, but they cost as much as buying one from Dell and there's no guarantee that they will work. A new printer can be had for $152, and a 6000 page cartridge is $90. Then there is the drum kit...ah, sorry. Not working for me. I don't like the math.

Scott, Amazon
12 January 2006
  • Summary: You can stop the irritating pop-up and the several seconds delay by going to Dell's uninstall and chossing only the this item, i cant rememeber what its called but you should be able to recognize it

ok printer for the money

st. louis mom "stlouismom", Amazon
11 November 2005
  • Summary: This is a pretty noisy printer- I don't recommend having sit next to you. There is a several second delay after one hits "print". I wouldn't care, but an irritating pop-up from Dell comes up and blocks further typing until it dissapears. The main function of the popup seems to be to encourage ordering supplies from Dell.

Great Printer

jhcpa, Amazon
28 September 2005
  • Summary: I bought this printer from Amazon in August for $199. It was easy to set up on the network and prints very well. PC Magazine complained about the printing speed being a bit on the slow side- but I do not agree. For a home office or a small business it works just fine. The toner cartridges and drums are MUCH less expensive than the comparable ones from Brother. My Brother printer before this worked just fine but after 20,000 pages I needed to buy a new drum..
