Dell C1760nw Color Printer Review and Ratings


This laser-class color LED printer prints sharply and quickly enough, but it's short on convenience features (such as automatic two-sided printing), and its cost per page is off the charts.

Relatively fast for the price class ; Good print quality ; Easy to set up and use ; Small and lightweight

Cost per page is too high ; Short on support for mobile devices, Internet/cloud features ; No auto-duplexing ; No PC-free printing

Entry-level, personal-laser printers have devolved over the years into something of a niche market. What some potential buyers may not realize when considering small color laser/LED devices like this one is that, despite these printers' strong print...

Dell C1760nw


Dell's C1760nw is one of the least expensive colour LED printers on the market, at a penny under £100 from some sources. This puts it well into the colour inkjet market, while offering the permanent and crisp letter formation a toner-based printer...

Low cost ; Lifetime drum and fuser ; Quiet running

Very high running costs ; Slower than some inkjets ; Yellow tint to photos

It’s never a good policy to have a printer that’s cheaper to buy than a set of its consumables – why not just buy a new printer? Other than this, there are some nice design features to the machine, though it’s not particularly quick and photo prints...

Dell C1760nw review


If your old Dell C1660w colour printer is on its last legs and you're thinking of upgrading your small office or home printer, you'll be pleased to learn that Dell has a successor – with a few more useful features.

For the Dell C1760nw Dell has made some necessary upgrades to the C1660w colour printer, adding a network connection, expanded paper input and faster print engine. But ink costs are far higher than average and will make the printer unattractively...

Dell C1760nw colour printer


We've spent a lot of electronic ink telling you to avoid low-cost colour laser printers, because they're all slow, with sparse features and worst of all, really expensive toner. We'd almost advise the same about the $249 (as of April, 2013) Dell...

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.

Excellent printer at a reasonable cost


The Dell C1760nw is an excellent no frills printer. The output is sharp and colors are vibrant. It has dual sided printing but you have to load the paper manually. Overall I am very pleased with it.

Difficult installation for MAC


The included CD has Windows installation, but nothing for MAC, even though the printer supports MAC. I had to get the driver from SUPPORT.DELL.COM. With 10.10.4, you need driver version A05 or higher.

Does its job


It gets four-stars because it prints fine and does its job, but it was a bit harder to set up than expected. That may be inevitable with wireless printers, but Dell could have created better software and better documentation to help get through the...
