Dell 3110cn review: Dell 3110cn


Dell 3110cn

Lightning-fast mono prints; low per-page costs; built-in networking; 24/7 tech support.

Print quality needs to be improved across the board; duplex costs extra; slow color prints.

The Dell 3110cn is a decent color laser that should satisfy casual home office users, but we think the Lexmark C530dn is an overall better product.

Dell Color Laser Printer 3110cn


Fast speed and good paper handling help make the Dell Color Laser Printer 3110cn a solid workhorse printer for a small office.

Reasonable speed and output quality overall. Good paper handling.

Although text quality is good enough for most business needs, it's below par for a laser.

The Dell isn't cheap, but its running costs are among the lowest available. Add strong output, some heavyweight specifications (with options that'll beef it up considerably) and network support as standard, and you have an excellent colour laser that...

Very low running costs, very expandable

A little expensive outright, not the greatest hardware resolution
