Dell 1250c Color LED Laser-Class Printer review: Dell 1250c Color LED Laser-Class Printer

 

The Dell 1250c is a suitable match for individuals hunting for a single-function laser printer that can output black and color documents in a light-duty printing environment. Its $150 retail price puts it in the same price category as all-in-one...

The Dell 1250c is easy to set up and delivers high-resolution documents in black as well as color.

The printer can only connect to one computer at a time through a USB port in the pack, lacking Ethernet and Wi-Fi networking.

The Dell 1250c color laser printer's compact frame makes sense for users in a confined space, but its lack of Ethernet and wireless connectivity limits its appeal for networked offices.

Dell 1250c

 

The Dell 1250c color printer uses LED technology instead of the more-common laser to create equally crisp results. Priced at just $230 (as of September 29, 2010), it makes color output seem attainable even for a home office. Unfortunately, exorbitant...

Affordable purchase price ; Nice color quality

Severely overpriced toner ; Control-panel lights are difficult to interpret

This color LED printer's low purchase price is tempting, but its extremely high toner costs are off-putting.

Dell 1250c Color LED Printer

 

Like the 1350cnw, the 1250c is an LED printer, which means it's similar to a laser, but uses LEDs instead of a laser to draw the image of each page when it prints. One advantage of LEDs is that they help keep the printer size down. In the case of the...

Fast. Reasonably high-quality output across the board. Above-par photo quality

USB connection only. Low paper capacity, at 150-sheets

The Dell 1250c Color LED Printer delivers faster speed and better output quality overall than anything else in its price class, but at a somewhat higher cost per page.

The $229 1250c is a fine color LED printer for small and home offices with moderate printing needs, but note its high toner cost and lack of networking.

Quiet operation ; Sturdy ; Well-built ; Great print quality ; Small footprint

High per-page consumables cost ; No wireless interface or network adapter

Review: Dell 1250c color printer

 

This color LED printer's low purchase price is tempting, but its extremely high toner costs are off-putting.

Printer vendors often charge lower-volume users less for the printer and more for the toner, but Dell has set a new record with this model. The printer ships with standard-size, 700-page supplies. The black toner costs $50 (7.1 cents per page), while...

Dell 1250c

 

The Dell 1250c Color LED Printer is a definitively personal printer, designed primarily for one person's use in any size office. The personal focus shows in its small size, relatively low paper capacity, and lack of wired or wireless network support....

Dell 1250c

 

The Dell 1250c is a compact printer with excellent print quality. The Dell Clear View LED technology is a standout feature on the device and ensures you get professional-looking prints with each use. The 30,000 monthly duty cycle is also a large...

The Dell 1250c offers Dell Clear View LED technology for clear and crisp color prints

There are only 64MB of installed memory available on this device

The Dell 1250c is a compact printer that is in need of several advancements with its features.

Dell 1250c Review

 

Dell has made its entry into the LED printer category with its 1000 series, and we have with us the 1250c, which uses Dell's Clear View LED print technology. This printer is designed to be compact for greater space efficiency without any compromise on...

The Dell 1250c, which costs around Rs. 17,000, comes in a compact package and provides decent energy savings. In terms of price per print, however, an inkjet MFD would be more economical.
