Fantastic print quality and cheap running costs. Print quality is far better than i ever imagined. You can print photos onto plain paper and they look extremely good with no paper curling that you get with an inkjet. I’m by no means a heavy user, but my kids are always printing out full page pictures with 100% toner coverage.Despite this the original supplied (half-capacity) toners are still showing between 60-80% full after 5 months of usage. The canon inkjet i was using before needed cartridges replacing every 3 months or so at a cost of about £20 for a set of cheap compatibles. The reviews i’ve seen of compatible toners suggest they are identical in quality, so for a little over 40 quid for a full set of full capacity toners, this represents extremely cheap running costs compared to my inkjet. I’m staggered by what you get for your money with this printer. The only things missing compared to my old printer are proper duplex printing (though the driver lets you do manual double-sided by flipping the paper half way through printing) and cd printing. I’ve kept the inkjet going purely for the cd printing, though i had assumed i would be using it for photos too – not required, the dell laser gives better results.
Worked well first time, lovely quality and quick too. . Very pleased with this, as it was at a bargain price, delivered quickly and installed hastle-free as a wifi printer on my network. Works really well every time, lovely quality of print.
Dell 1320cn great piece of kit. It arrives in a big dell box (or at least mine did) it was well packaged but not ‘overdone’. The printer itself is compact due to its square form factor, but primarily due to the fact it neither faxes nor photocopies, i’ve purchased this machine to replace a now ‘old’ hp laserjet which was an ‘all-in-one’ office design. I’ll let you decide whether the dell has a large footprint or not, it’s 37. 5cm high, 40cm wide and 42cm deep (including rear tray projection). Unpacking and setting up was pretty straightforward, there is both a big easy setup card and video included (on install disk). It wasn’t rocket science (though not intuitive either) but i followed the instructions as the extra minutes to do so where nothing compared to the time lost if i had to ring dell if i did get it wrong. We have a number of laptops and p. S (running a mixture of xp & vista) in our house all accessing the internet via a wireless router and all but the office computer doing that wirelessly.

Great value colour laser printer. As previous reviewers have stated, this printer is a bit larger than i expected. However, the print quality is excellent, and set up on my network was a piece of cake. I also had no difficulty in locating the printer via my wireless router and two laptops – great value for money.
A dell 1320c printer purchased from amazon on the 27th january 2009, it’s a little larger than expected but i’ve got used to this now. It’s very quick to warm up and print out, the colour prints are excellant no complaints as yet. The reason for getting a colour laser printer was because ink cartridges these days have very little ink in them and you tend to be changing them every day. It’s a little early to say how long the toner cartridge will last but if the number of sheets per cartridge is quoted correct then it will work out cheaper than ink. At the moment no complaints.

Fast delivery – arrived well before the promised date. Easy to set up – no problems connecting to my network. It appears to work reliably (around 2 months old now) and produces good quality prints quickly. I had a couple of problems with the paper feed tray in the first few days, but that seems ok now, perhaps it wasn’t loaded or inserted properly. The cost of replacement toner cartridges from dell is outrageous, much more than the cost of the printer for a full set. I’ve just ordered a set of compatible toner cartridges from amazon, i hope they work, although i shouldn’t need them for quite a while yet.
This printer may be big, it may be heavy, it may be lacking wireless – bit i think it is fantastic – easy to set up (follow the video), fast (even full page colour), superb print quality (on cheap 80 gsm paper), dependable (no problems or paper jams so far) plus the fact that inexpensive remanufactured toner cartridges are readily available. I just wish i had bought one earlier instead of perservering with ink jets. Obviously you need a good inkjet printer for specialist printing and for top quality photo printing but, if you are looking for a reliable machine that produces professional looking prints every time, order one of these – today.
