Summary: In the end, I used it for parts. There were broken pieces inside that prevented it from operating correctly. Neither the toner nor infusion devices were good. Decided that I had higher priorities than arguing over 100 bucks.

Summary: I've had my Dell 1320c for almost 2 years, since June of 2009. Hey, I'm just an average computer user. Also, I have friends that use them at home and work - all without a single hitch so far... Not a single problem from all of them, and they all still work like new. I love the quality of the prints, both B&w and full color - and the color printing is really amazing for this price.
Summary: When this printer works, it works great. Great photo quality, speed is good for the price. Cost of toner is high and generic toners sometimes are rejected. Unfortunately after 6k pages the blacks started going faint and colors run. New toner and thorough cleanings did not help. I guess I hit the 10k page limit on the PHD early.
Summary: We have a home real estate office that needs to print color flyers, listing sheets w/photos, etc. as well as normal B/W output. The printer exceeded our expectations for color printing pamphlets, etc--almost as good as an inkjet--but more economical and a lot faster. Only glitch is single sheet feeder which sometimes crinkles envelopes a bit, and can be tricky to align when printing checks. But still a bargain.
Summary: Printer would be a great value if the error messages were easier to understand and solve. Goes through toner like crazy. Noisy. Very convoluted instructions to align the print heads and when that does not work all support sources say to replace the print head device (PHD) - at the cost of the overall printer. The math suggests that I should replace the PHD about every other toner replacement. No economy there. Now I have an error message that I cannot decipher...
Summary: I recently purchased this printer and found it will not feed anything satisfactorily through the envelope feeder. When I contacted Dell Support (they are wonderful), I was told this: "When printing envelopes on this printer, there is not way to completely remove the wrinkles. The way the paper path is in this printer, it causes an air pocket to be created and then when the fuser moves through the fuser, that causes the wrinkles to be created.
