Great printer, cheap refills.

Graceway, Amazon

  • Summary: Great printer, much better then the HP ones we have used. Printed around 30k pages in the four months we've had it, only one paper jam. We do a lot of color printing, and initially we were draining through the colour toner, not getting anywhere near their estimated usage, but remember, their estimated usage isn't for big charts, photos, etc, just essentially for coloured text.

  • Summary: This printer has a mind of its own and works when it feels like it. Pretty sure it has a union rep.

Home Office 5130cdn

Wort, Amazon
22 September 2012
  • Summary: I have used this printer for >1 year, <50k pages - nearly all pages containing some color, and many with substantial color coverage. I purchased this model in an attempt to cut my total cost of printing - it seems like the more expensive the printer, the lower the cost of toner/page. At this point, my calculation says that I am now $ ahead over buying a $500 printer because of lower toner cost - YMMV...remember, I use a LOT of color.

Bad expensive printer

Jenn, Amazon
3 July 2012
  • Summary: Got this printer and had nothing but problems. Long phone calls with tech support, replaced drums and toner several times. Dell eventually had to send us a new printer and now 1 month after the new printer is installed, the belt has to be changed. This printer is not reliable and for a business, it's a huge liability. Don't get this one.

Stay away from this printer!

  • Summary: Have had the 5130 CDN for 13 months now. The consumables are incredibly expensive and only available from Dell. We are constantly having to replace toner, the toner waste container, fuser, etc. They are all high-priced from Dell. One month out of warranty the printer quit with an error that it needed a new belt unit. Ordered the belt unit (only available from Dell for $375.00) and installed it. At power up it gave us an 006-370 error and said to call for support.

Good printing, bad parts...

KG, Amazon
10 June 2011
  • Summary: As far as printer performance I would say its great, fast, crisp colors....but I had a major issue with the printer after about 1 year, 2-3 parts completely just stopped working, I had to extend the warranty to get the parts covered, I am pretty annoyed about ti because the printer had less then 10k pages printed on it when all this happened...

This is a lot of printer

Neurasthenic "neurasthenic", Amazon

  • Summary: It does a lot, it does it quickly, it prints from just about anything with a microchip, and it's easy to set up. The only disadvantage to this beast is that it takes up a lot of space. We use the printer primarily from OSX, but it works from Windows too, and I was even able to print from a Tandy WP-2, an eight bit computer from 1989 that connected directly to the printer's parallel port.
