5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Printer 24 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase
The Dell 1320c is a great printer, it is far superior to its little brother the Samsung CLP-315 (both printers are made by Samsung). I have personal experience of both printers. The Dell is around 35% taller than the Samsung and has a slightly greater footprint. The extra height is due to the fact that this is a single pass printer as opposed the Samsung which is a four pass printer. Speeds are good for the price (12ppm color and 16pp B&W), and the colour pages come out a lot faster than on the CLP-315.

Setup is straightforward but you must do as Dell recommends (DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP), watch the setup video, there is a hairaising monent where you have to remove the imaging unit, remove some tapes, and replace the unit. It is possible to damage the transfer belt at this stage so be careful.

The software intalls easily and if installing on a network this is no problem at all.

Photo prints are very close to photographic quality and every detail is seen. This is in contrast to the CLP-315 where fine details get lost. Plain text is sharp and clear down to 2pts.

It is easy to find non-OEM toners by searching the web and you can obtain a full set of compatible high capacity cartridges for around 60 which makes running cost very low indeed.

This is a superb printer with built in networking and at a ridiculously low price, don't buy the CLP-315 as the feature set and quality of the Dell is far, far superior, and at the same price as the Samsung CLP-315 it is a no brainer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good printer - but toner is costly 10 April 2009
I purchased this printer recently to replace a B&W laser, which needed new toner. I was attracted by the low purchase price for a colour laser, not much more than the cost of toner for my old printer.

It was easy to install and produces excellent results.

Then came the shock. The cost of a set of 4 toner cartridges was more than twice the purchase price of the printer. It would encourage people to throw away the printer when it runs out of toner and buy a new one! Its time this crazy practice of selling cheap printers with over-priced consumables ended. Better to pay a proper price for the printer and make the consumables more reasonable.

5.0 out of 5 stars good value 9 April 2009
I bought the printer about a month ago, only 100 sheets printed as yet, but no problems so far. The cartridge level indicators still show 100%. Print quality is good. The printer is on the large size for home use, much bigger than an ink-jet, but no bigger than other colour laser printers I have used.

The printer is on a home network with a 2 PCs and a Mac. After downloading the Mac driver from the Dell site, there were no problems setting up.

To prevent un-needed use of coloured toner, I installed the Mac driver twice, one set to mono only (set as the default) and one set to full colour for optional use when required.

3.0 out of 5 stars laser colour printer 31 July 2009
Verified Purchase
I purchased this because I have a similar one at work which is excellent, however this model is not made to the same standard and is definitely a cheap and cheerful version for lighter use.

Although it is possible to get excellent results these are only achieved using 90gsm paper. With ordinary 80 gsm there are several problems. There is a strong tendency for the paper to jam and creasing of part of the page happens frequently. This means the image is not so good either. The work version has cartridges which last for ages but this is not true of those installed in this machine, which have already had to be replaced. The cost of toner cartridges is extortionate so there will not be a saving as I had expected compared to using an inkjet.

Overall I would not recommend this printer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Value 9 Nov 2009
By Yottie
I bought this to replace my old HP959c inkjet, which was mainly used to print text. The difference in print quality is amazing, with very clear text and good colours. I have not attempted to use it to print photos, because that is not something that I would expect from any budget priced laser printer.
This printer may well be the cheapest colour laser currently available, but it certainly does not look or feel cheap.
Be warned, it is big and heavy, and its black and silver colour scheme makes it look even bigger.
There is a 19 stage installation process, but the software guides you effortlessly though it with films to show you exactly what to do.
Best of all it is a network printer. If you connect to your wireless router with a network cable, instead of directly connecting it to your computer by USB then any computer on your wireless network can print from it, provided you install the printer driver software on each machine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dell 1320CN Network Colour Laser Printer 25 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace my ageing Epson Stylus Photo 830 inkjet printer. It hasn't worked out quite as planned.
I run a small business so I wanted a printer that would be less fussy than an inkjet and cheaper to run.

First the good news; this is an excellent printer (5 stars) for printing A4 documents (I've only used it with 90gsm paper). Printing is very crisp and colours vibrant. I've had no problems whatsoever.
I don't print many photos but I've been happy with those that I have.
I've had it nearly 5 months. The black cartridge is now low but the others are still pretty full. So I would say that it is likely to be cheaper to run than my inkjet even buying genuine cartridges.

Now the bad news; one of the reasons I chose this printer was that I need to print envelopes and this printer has a separate front single sheet feeder for that purpose. However it doesn't really work. It's very reluctant to feed an envelope and when it does it comes out badly creased. I've tried a couple of different envelope sizes and the results are the same. The end result is that the old Epson Inkjet is still on my desk just so I can print envelopes!

So, in summary, if you don't need to print envelopes I think you'll be very pleased with this printer. If you do then have an alternative solution or buy a different printer.

ps there have been a lot of reviews of this printer and none seem to have mentioned the envelope printing problem. Am I the only reviewer that prints envelopes or the only one with a problem doing so?
