Dell Wireless Laser Printer B1160w review:

 

Like most of the budget monochrome printers in Dell's product lineup, the B1160w wireless laser printer is a mediocre performer for the price, capable of serving up a limited amount of prints in a personal-use environment, like a dorm room or a home...

The Dell B1160w 's low-profile footprint occupies very little desk space and its Wi-fi connectivity works well for multiple users operating in the same network.

The 150-sheet paper capacity demands more frequent refills, and wired networking isn't an option without an onboard Ethernet port.

The Dell B1160w's limited paper input capacity and lack of Ethernet networking constrain its use for small businesses with high-volume workloads, but its compact form makes it an affordable solution for personal use at home.

Dell B1160w Mono Laser Printer

 

Visit a U.S. supermarket in summer, and you may well see two kinds of watermelons for sale: the ordinary, enormous kind, alongside small, round versions dubbed, amusingly, "personal watermelons." Those one-man melons always give us a grin—if only for...

Low price ; Fast print speeds ; Good output quality ; Easy to set up and use ; Nearly portable

Slightly high per-page toner cost ; Subpar image printing

One of the smallest lasers available, this low-cost printer delivers top-notch quality, but its per-page cost makes it suitable only for light printing needs.

Dell B1160 Laser Printer

 

The price of laser printers has fallen dramatically in the last couple of years, and Dell's B1160 is one of the most compact and affordable models we've seen so far.

Fast; compact; affordable

Colour inkjet printers are more versatile than mono lasers, and will still the best option for many people. However, the B1160 is a good option for small businesses and home workers who need a fast, mono printer for producing letters and reports on a...
