Excerpt: Small businesses and home-office workers needing relatively small volumes of black-and-white documents might be attracted to Dell's B1265dfw. And beyond the monochrome laser printing, it also has further multifunction capabilities. See all printer reviews .
Conclusion: The Dell B1265dnf Multifunction Mono Laser covers all the bases for most small office needs. In addition to printing, scanning, copying and faxing, it delivers a potentially attractive balance of speed, output quality, paper handling, price and features. That said, if you put a priority on speed, you should take a look at the Canon MF4570dn (though it’s approaching £100 more expensive than the Dell).
Pros: Prints, scans, copies and faxes, Impressive text output quality, Solid graphics output, Duplexer and automatic document feeder
Cons: A little bulky to sit on a desk, Photo output quality isn’t so hot
Summary: Office printers live a thankless life. Often tucked away out of site and without so much as a nod of appreciation, the office printer is the silent hero of the business. Sure we’re edging closer to the paperless office as each year passes, but for most of us the working day doesn’t pass without printing or scanning some kind of information—invoices, receipts, presentations, web pages, recipes (shhhh!).
