Summary: The reason I bought this printer is the availability of inexpensive replacement toner cartridges. I can buy replacement toner cartridges for less than half what it would cost me if I had an HP color laser printer. After using the printer for a week and being totally satisfied with it, I purchased the optional duplexer. The duplexer simply snaps into place and couldn't be easier to install. I've had the printer for about a month now and haven't had any problems with it.
Summary: I really like the quality of the color on plain 28lb multipurpose paper. I do alot of basic printing B/W and color print and graphics and the quality of the color surprised me. I expected less than inkjet quality at 640dpi but instead I find the quality is better than my injet on plain paper. The speed and noise factor is another unexpected good surprise; noise is less than an inkjet and the speed of printing is 5 times or more faster.
Summary: The only bad thing seems to be the size, it is a very large cube shape. It is an attractive looking printer however. Prints well and quickly. Nice vibrant colors and the toners do seem to be refillable somehow although I have not tried it yet. I've printed several times with it and the levels all still read 100%. It does need to be on it's own electrical outlet as most laser printers, because a UPS will click when you turn it on from the power dip.
Summary: This is a really great printer. There is also some pro's and con's about it. Some of the pro's is that the image quality is very good, and printing quality is good, including the speed. Some of the Con's where that I had difficulties adjusting to having the printer printing in the right tone by adjusting it lighter or darker. Overall the printer is very efficient and hand when it comes to business printing, and something that requires lots of printing.
Summary: I purchased one of these printers to replace two older printers. I had an old HP Laserjet 4 and a Lexmark colour inkjet. This Dell printer was easy to install on my network and the quality of the print easily surpasses that of my older printers. The thing that first attracted me to this printer was the cost of the replacement cartridges.
