Conclusion: Dell Laser Printer 1700n offers text quality just short of excellent and very good quality for graphics. Performance is slow for the claimed 25-page-per-minute engine, but the low price makes up for the slow speed. This is one of the least expensive network laser printers we've seen.
Pros: Text quality just short of excellent. Better quality graphics than most monochrome lasers. Network connection.
Cons: Relatively slow performance for the engine speed.
