Multifunctional printers can come handy when you want one device that can print, copy, scan and fax. Dell C1765NFW might a good candidate for your all-in-one printer needs. Aside from the many functions it allows you to print wirelessly as well as from mobile devices. Let's see if this Dell is a good choice for you.

It might be you've already made up your mind about buying this. In that case, I'd recommend checking it out over Amazon.com. They'll most likely have lucrative prices and absolutely no hidden fees. From what I've heard customers are overally very satisfied with Amazon.

Main features

Dell C1765NFW can print 600x600 DPI quality for both black and color. That's a typical amount for laser printer like this. You can achieve very crisp and professional looking documents with that quality. For professional photos laser printer isn't good choice, although now-and-then photo printing can be done with them.

Printing speed is up to 15 black pages per minute. For color pages, it's 12 ppm. I wouldn't call that very fast printer. If you are getting printer for big busy office I would recommend against this Dell. That said, in small home office you might not be so busy. In this case, the mentioned speed is just fine.

Other features

Pros:
  • Solid laser print quality
Cons:
  • High initial and running costs

Cost per one black page is approximately 4.2 cents when using Dell's own toner cartridge. It's quite acceptable. However, color prints with Dell's own 700 page yield toner can cost up to 30 cents per page. That's way, way too much. That said, you can still use third-party inks to considerably lower the costs.

The Dell's monthly duty cycle is 30 000 pages. You can print so many pages per month with this printer without breaking it. It's a lot of pages and would easily be enough for office environment. Just remember the actual limit could be a lot lower, with 30 000 being the absolute maximum.

For those on budget this Dell offers duplex printing. It comes handy when you want to save money and don't mind printing on two sides of the paper. Also the usual Wi-Fi connection is provided allowing you to use less cables. That's something an environment with many computers will like.

Summary

Dell C1765nfw is useful multifunctional printer of high price. There are more affordable options available. The cost per page (when using official Dell ink) of color prints is also ridiculous. If you opt for this printer I'd strongly recommend using third-party or extra-high capacity Dell toners.
