Summary: I didn't buy it here--I bought it for thirty bucks used off the list that starts with see. (The seller didn't know what the "dn" stands for and had bought another printer.) I have it on my home network and it just keeps on ticking. This morning I printed out a 150 page handout (double sided, so 75 sheets of paper) for my wife for school and it jammed one time when it ran out of paper from one package and started paper from an older package that had been lying out open.
Summary: I'm not usually a big fan of Dell products but I have owned 2 Dell 1700s in the past and now have upgraded to 2 Dell 1720s. These laser printers just keep turning out the pages more reliably than any other printer I've used over the past 30 years.
Summary: This printer has been discontinued for many years. My office, which has this printer, needed a replacement part that is no longer available. It was cost effective to order this item for the replacement part and now we have a backup printer. This printer does the job.
Fabulous service from vendor and quick turn around time.

Summary: I can't say how pleased I am with this vendor and the product I purchased. I put in an incorrect delivery address for this printer. I ordered it from home but since I ordered it for my work, I had to change the address but it proved to be no problem. The printer arrived very quickly which made me very happy as my old printer was making me work harder than it was.I am extremely happy with my printer, the price and great service.
Summary: I bought the Dell 1720dn laser printer because it was recommended by Consumer Reports. Lasted a little more than a year when paper started to jam very often. Also other problems--spewed out many sheets with only top line printed in gibberish. Dell customer support said my one year warranty had recently expired and I should have bought an extended warranty because this is a low-end product.
Summary: Purchased this printer over a year ago.... started printed 5-6 pages at once with jibberish on the first page only. Called Tech Support, was told the only that can be done was to buy a new printer since it was a mechanical problem. Apparently Dell is only making products that last a year. Will never buy from them again.
Summary: This refurb printer lasted less than 6 weeks. It stopped picking up paper from the tray, does not recognize the level of toner in the cartridge, and will randomly decide it takes an hour to print. Certainly didn't get our moneys worth for this one.
Summary: POS printer.. I've had this for a few years and I'm throwing it away. Print quality was never as good as an ink jet. Duplex printing worked the first time and then jams from now on. Dell discontinued this almost as soon as it was produced. Typical of Dell?
Summary: I PURCHASED THIS PRINTER ON 01 /01/2008 ITS BEEN CLOSE TO THREE YEARS NOW AND I HAVE PUT THIS PRINTER THROUGH HEAVY USE ,ON MY 3RD FULL MAX INK CARTRIDGE,USED AS A BUSINESS AND PERSONAL PRINTER. THIS DELL 1720 LASER PRINTER HAS NEVER FAILED IN ANY WAY, THIS IS OUTSTANDING. O MAINTENANCE,O PAPER JAMS ,EXCELLENT PRINT QUALITY ON ECONOMY SETTING.
