Dell B1265dnf Multifunction Mono Laser Printer

 

The Dell B1265dnf Multifunction Mono Laser Printer offers all the right MFP features for a micro, home, or small office.

Duplexer (for two-sided printing). Automatic document feeder. Ethernet. Prints, scans, copies, and faxes.

A little too large to comfortably share a desk with. Photo quality at the low end of par for a mono laser.

Dell B1265dnf Review and Ratings

 

This entry-level mono laser prints, copies, and scans quickly, and in fine quality. It's a good fit only for light duty, however, due to its high cost per page.

Low price ; Speedy for the price ; Excellent print quality ; Easy to set up and use ; Sturdy-feeling ; Automatic duplexer

Lofty per-page cost ; No support for Wi-Fi

Let's face it—monochrome laser printers get a bum rap. They're just not sexy. Even if they catapulted out 500 pages per minute, the output would still look the same: plain ol', ho-hum black-and-white. Furthermore, the low end of the monochrome...

REVIEW: Dell B1265dnf

 

Choose the right printer and these chores are effortless. Pick the wrong printer and you'll have a fear of paper jams, network issues and constant ink replacement. Dell's latest A4 all-in-one (print, copy, scan, fax) monochrome A4 laser printer is...

The B1265dnf performs well for its class and produces good-looking documents, so it’s a good fit for small businesses with modest print-volume requirements (up to 100 pages per day). Print any more and you’ll save money in the long term with a pricier...

Easy to setup and great features for this type of device. printing really quick and scan/faxes very fast to go through machine. Scan feature on this machine is "Brill" once driver is loaded onto individual PC's then the display on the unit picks-up...

Good print quality, but paper does tend to curl up when first printed, help if left for a while on flat surface to cool down. This is not really a big problem, just a niggle that they have not got it right, but then that is probably reflected in the...

Keyboard function and layout is not very intuitive compared with the HP's we have been using, but then if you use it mainly as a network printer this is not a real problem.

Dell B1265DNF

 

It is a good speed, duplex printer with an ADF scanner at a very good price. The print quality is excellent and it is no noisier than the HP P2015d it replaces

Some of the parts on the ADF are a bit flimsy, especially the fold out ADF input tray
