The Dell 1815dn laser printer is built to work, but with many of its features it is a good choice for the home office or personal use. It is a monochrome laser printer, fax machine, scanner and copier all in one unit with some really cool features. If you need color prints and not the multi-function, check out the Dell 2130cn toner printer. An onboard USB port allows for the printing from or scanning to a USB Flash drive and the driver supports Unix, Windows and Mac systems making it easy for everyone on your team to use. Standard on the Dell 1815dn laser printer is an auto duplexing unit to help save on waste and cut paper costs, while it prints at almost 18 pages pre minute, not bad for under $400.00.
The auto duplexer on top of the unit is also an automatic document feeder for the scanner, fax and copier able to hold up to 50 sheets for larger batches of work. The lid to the copier, scanner and fax is well built and firm, better than a lot of models on the market today. Several models of the 1815dn are available. The base model comes with a memory of 96 MB and expands to 192 MB helping with larger documents, and the 1815dn model adds networking and duplexing.
Dell 1815dn toner cartridges are rated for 3,000 pages, but your results will vary based on print resolution, paper size and complexity of the document. The unit uses a single black laser toner cartridge. The printer toner cartridge replacements have a more reasonable capacity of 5,000 pages. To lower costs per page, the user can choose to purchase compatible toner cartridges at third-party resellers.
Overall, the Dell 1815dn can print at speeds up to 27 pages per minute at true 120 dpi resolution. Text is produced well and shows little signs of dithering.
