Dell B1165nfw


Armed with the ability to function as a standalone scanner, copier, and fax machine, the $199.99 Dell B1165nfw is just as capable of flipping through a 40-page document stack for automatic copying as it is of printing directly from an Android...

The Dell B1165nfw is a dutiful monochrome laser printer that can also act as a standalone scanner, copier, and fax machine. It's cloud-ready with native support for Google Cloud Print, Apple AirPrint, and Dell's own mobile Android application.

The printer includes a "starter" cartridge with less-than-average capacity, no upgrades exist for the limited paper tray, and there's no media card reader.

As long as you don't mind not being able to print from a USB flash key, the Dell B1165nfw's healthy array of extra features and quick outbound print cycle make it worthwhile for small offices with wireless access.

Dell B1165nfw


Dell's B1165nfw is a neat mono laser MFP, though with a couple of minor shortcomings for day-to-day use.

Easy maintenance ; Well-designed controls ; Low power for laser

No paper tray cover ; Relatively high page cost ; Slow Android print

Although we are a bit concerned with the running costs of this machine, Dell's B1164nfw is a versatile MFP for small and home office, covering all the business essentials and producing good quality print, reasonably quickly. Shame there's no cover for...

The Dell "Easy" wireless setup doesn't work, and the installation disk provided with the unit would not install the drivers on a machine using
