Dell 2355dn Multifunction Mono Laser Printer

 

The standout feature on the Dell 2355dn Multifunction Mono Laser Printer is unquestionably the color touch screen controls.

Color touch screen controls. Prints, scans, and faxes even over a network. Standalone copier and fax.

Although the basics like speed and output quality are sufficient for a small office or workgroup, they aren't particularly impressive.

Dell 5230dn Laser Printer

 

The Dell 5230dn monochrome laser printer may cost more up front ($1000 as of August 27, 2010), but its speed and expandability make it an excellent choice for a medium-size workgroup. And with its three-year limited warranty with next-business-day...

Fast ; Inexpensive toner ; Three-year standard warranty

High purchase price

Fast and expandable, with cheap toner, the 5230dn is well suited for a high-volume office.

Review: Dell 5230dn monochrone laser printer

 

The Dell 5230dn monochrome laser printer may cost more up front, but its speed and expandability make it an excellent choice for a business.

The 5230dn offers plenty of standard features, plus room to grow. It supports a combined 350 pages of input from the main and multipurpose trays. You can add up to three 550-sheet drawers ($250 each) and a 2000-sheet drawer feeder ($900) for a maximum...

Dell cartridges are never full

 

Dell cartridges are NEVER full of toner. CheckToner cartridges contain MICR toner for printing checks AND filled to maximum capacity, which provides lowest cost per printed page.

Attractive Design,Easy To Clean,Price

Can\'t print checks,Not a full cartridge

Dell 2355DN

 

Produces good quality prints and copies quickly at a good price. Cannot comment on use as a scanner/fax as we do not use that facility.

Has the vents on the sides so space needs to be left on both sides when installing. To photocopy the lid is hinged at the back so space also needs to be left at the back too. Would have been a better design if vents were at the back when space needs to...

Fantastic value

Dell quibbled about the cash back before finally agreeing that the purchase was valid.

DELL 5230DN

 

Incredibly fast. Easy to install. Easy to set up.

Paper tray isn't big enough. 250 sheet is surprisingly low for a printer with such a high duty-cycle.
