Compact Dell laser printer has one job to do, does it well

 

The Dell B1160w monochrome laser printer is an efficient, dependable workhorse for individual use at home or on your work desk. The ability to add users over a wireless network is useful as well, but keep in mind that the low price means that you won't...

The ; 's low-profile footprint occupies very little desk space and its Wi-fi connectivity works well for multiple users operating in the same network.

The 150-sheet paper capacity demands more frequent refills, and wired networking isn't an option without an onboard Ethernet port.

The Dell B1160w's limited paper input capacity and lack of Ethernet networking constrain its use for small businesses with high-volume workloads, but its compact form makes it an affordable solution for personal use at home.

Dell B1160w Wireless Mono Laser Printer

 

The Dell B1160w Wireless Mono Laser Printer takes up less desktop real estate than most inkjets.

Low cost. Notably small size, even for a personal printer. Wi-Fi.

Low paper capacity. No duplexer. No Ethernet. High running cost.

Dell B1160w Mono Laser Printer

 

Visit a U.S. supermarket in summer, and you may well see two kinds of watermelons for sale: the ordinary, enormous kind, alongside small, round versions dubbed, amusingly, "personal watermelons." Those one-man melons always give us a grin—if only for...

Low price ; Fast print speeds ; Good output quality ; Easy to set up and use ; Nearly portable

Slightly high per-page toner cost ; Subpar image printing

One of the smallest lasers available, this low-cost printer delivers top-notch quality, but its per-page cost makes it suitable only for light printing needs.

Dell B1160 Laser Printer

 

The price of laser printers has fallen dramatically in the last couple of years, and Dell's B1160 is one of the most compact and affordable models we've seen so far.

Colour inkjet printers are more versatile than mono lasers, and will still the best option for many people. However, the B1160 is a good option for small businesses and home workers who need a fast, mono printer for producing letters and reports on a...

Excellent

 

In Ubuntu, you have to install the Dell unified printer driver to get this thing to work. I read forum posts saying it was incompatible with Ubuntu which is nonsense, it works flawlessly with the 3rd party drivers installed. Compact, nice looking...

Simple, reliable, cheap, extremely fast

Broke Down- Awful Printer!

 

I bought this printer for my college dorm room- it seemed like a great option, considering it was small, not pricey and met my needs (I mean, who needs to print color and scan in college? For those needs I just planned to find printers and scanners...
