Dell 1350 CNW
on 8 September 2011
I bought a Dell 1350 CNW from an Amazon reseller about three months ago. Whilst not the cheapest colour Laser around, I chose the Dell because the toner cartridges are a reasonable price, unlike some other makes where you might as well go and buy a new printer when the cartridge needs replacing.
Anyway, delivery was smooth and quick from Bentham. No problems on that front.
Installation is a bit involved, half dismantling the printer to remove all the packing tapes . . . but then it worked first time no problems, so I suppose that's worth it.
Printer connected up to my router via cable, run the Dell software on a Win7 machine and there she is! And there she's stayed!. Three months of home use, no problems. No jams. Original cartridges still going strong. Doesn't have any problem feeding cheap/recycled paper. User interface is simple and it just does what it says on the tin . . . you hit the print button, and ten seconds later out spits the print-out.
My only negative comment is that photo's haven't been as clear as on my old inkjet, but I haven't really experimented that much to find the best settings/paper for it and have been using up my supply of HP Inkjet Photopaper in it, which is probably why.
It works. Its a colour laser printer. It can connect to a network if you want. Replacement toner cartridges are a reasonable cost.
