Dell C1760nw Color Printer


The Dell C1760nw Color Printer is a step up from the Dell C1660w Color Printer, adding Ethernet connectivity and a bypass tray, using a slightly faster print engine, and offering slightly lower running costs. It has solid (if unspectacular) speed and...

Dell C1760nw


A cheap colour LED printer for home office, though running costs are high

Low cost ; Lifetime drum and fuser ; Quiet running

Outstandingly sharp text printing; quality graphic and photo printing

Pricey toner; average to slow printing times

Colour laser devotees, we know you’re out there. If you must buy a low-cost colour laser, the Dell C1760nw is one we’re willing to recommend – albeit with many reservations – because of its unusually good graphics quality.

Good price and cheap to run with after market cartridges (Dell's are extortionate) ; easy to set up on a wireless network

Difficulty connection to one of my Macs ; Very slow to print some graphics
