Dell 1130n Laser Printer: Not Very Cost-Effective


Dell has been manufacturing printers for quite some time now and just last month, they came out with the 1130n along with a barrage of other printers. The 1130n is a monochromatic, network ready printer, specifically targeted towards small and medium...

While the printing speed and quality are very decent, the 1130n is expensive at Rs. 16,000. A couple of other options include the Samsung ML-2571N that is priced at Rs. 12,500 MRP or an even cheaper Xerox-Phaser 3124 which will set you back by only Rs....

Dell 1130n


The Dell 1130n delivers the basic features we'd expect from a budget monochrome laser printer; it includes wired networking through the Ethernet port on the back, an ample 250-sheet paper tray, and a separate one-sheet manual feed tray for irregular...

The Dell 1130n's low-profile design, basic setup procedure, and decent output results make it a strong contender to be your next light-duty office printer.

The 1130n's graphical output quality needs improvement, and it doesn't include Wi-Fi connectivity.

Although it performed adequately in our print speed tests, this basic monochrome laser printer is outgunned by competitive devices with wireless networking for the same price.

Dell 1130n Laser Printer


The Dell 1130n Laser Printer ($179 direct) is the sort of product that can do the job it's meant for, but isn't anything to get excited about. It offers reasonable speed for a mono laser, for example, but it's significantly slower than others in its...

Small enough for a personal printer. Ethernet connector for sharing on a network

Although good enough for most business purposes, output quality is a touch below par across the board

The Dell 1130n Laser Printer is small enough to share a desk with as a personal printer, but includes an Ethernet connector for easy sharing in a micro-office.

Dell 1130 Laser Printer


Clearly designed as a personal printer for any size office, the Dell 1130 Laser Printer ($119.99 direct) is small enough to share a desk with and delivers an appropriate level of speed, output quality, and paper handling. Although it doesn't offer...

Low cost. Suitably small for a personal printer

Although output quality is good enough for most business purposes, it's a touch below par overall

Meant primarily as a mono laser personal printer for any size office, the Dell 1130 Laser Printer is small enough to comfortably share a desk with.

Dell 1130n


The 1130n is a decent monochrome laser printer for small offices where cost is a concern, but it doesn't offer enough features to set it apart from its competition.

Inexpensive for a networkable laser model; built-in Ethernet port; good-quality output

Occasional paper jams; problematic paper handling; consumables are costlier than comparable printers

After considering most of the major features (price, quality of output, speed, and cost of consumables), the Samsung ML-2525W reigns king of the budget monochrome lasers we've tested of late. The Dell 1130n is nothing to sniff at, as the price is low...

easy to set up


haven't had it long, but we replaced a Dell 1815n that suddenly wouldn't play nice with the home network once we swapped the network hub.

Pretty straightforward out-of-box process...had all four of the family laptops printing via wireless network in about 30 minutes flat

We replaced a combination unit that had a scanner and copier, so those features would be nice to have, but I knew what I was buying and the price was worth it

Just the right size..


This printer is just right for my needs! Small and compact so it doesn't take over my desk, but produces a clear finish..Like it so much I am considering buying one for my home.
