Conclusion: The Dell Laser Printer 5100cn color laser offers reasonably good performance, duplexing, and the option to boost paper capacity from 650 sheets to 2,150. Output quality is mixed, with better than average photos, middling graphics, and worse-than-average text compared with that of other color lasers.
Pros: Photo quality is in the top tier for color lasers. Good performance for the price. Maximum capacity with optional paper trays is 2,150 sheets.
Cons: Text quality, at just short of very good, is relatively low for a laser printer.
