Review: Dell B1265dfw is a decent monochrome laser MFP with pricey toner

 

The Dell B1265dfw is a reasonably capable monochrome laser MFP for small offices, but its two-sided scanning abilities are weak, and toner costs are high.

Good speed ; Good color scanning

No duplex scanning support for the ADF ; Pricey toner

Dell B1265dfw

 

One of our favourite all-in-one laser printers

Wireless direct print from mobile devices ; Multi-purpose feed slot ; PaperPort 14 included

Quite a bit slower than spec ; Unusual menu navigation ; Above average running cost

Dell includes a copy of Nuance PaperPort 14 with the B1265dfw to help manage your documents and provide OCR support when scanning. The scanner has a surprisingly high resolution of 1200ppi optical, enhanced up to 4800ppi.

Dell B1265dfw review

 

The B1265dfw comes with a full set of print, copy, scan and fax modes, only targeted at low-output users. There's a simple 250-sheet paper tray in the base of the unit as well as a single-sheet feeder for specialist media types and a 40-page ADF on...

The Dell B1265dfw mono laser MFP will appeal principally for speed and text quality but it's hampered by expensive running costs and poor graphics quality.

Dell B1265dfw is a decent monochrome laser MFP with pricey toner

 

Thinking of the $280 Dell B1265dfw as a monochrome laser printer with benefits puts it in its best light. Besides good print speed, it offers copying, faxing, and scanning in color. There's even an automatic document feeder (ADF), though the duplex...

Great printer. Good product. When I copy it, it is very clear. I like it very much.

PRETTY GOOD

 

Printing from a PC is fairly easy. The machine does OK. Scanning is a little difficult, because the paper grabber does not work too well, and the pages must be taken out of the "finished" tray as soon as they have been scanned. If not, then the machine...

toner lasts a long time

Jams Easily, scanner is tricky to use
