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...

Compact. Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB connectivity

Lacks auto-duplexer. No port for USB thumb drive

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.

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...

Dell C1760NW


Great value

Switches its self off to save energy which is great. But you have to manually keep turning it back on. When using it over wifi. It's a pain

Dell C1760NW


After switching on, printer is ready very quickly. Colour photos on plain paper were bright and vivid exceeding my expectations

Setting up wireless printing proved to be extremely difficult. Instructions were straightforward but did not work. In the end, a friend set it up using the menu screen on the printer
