The Dell 5310n is a monochrome laser printer designed for the small or medium office environment. It has blazing fast print speeds and a lot of expandability, though it may be a bit bulky for some small offices. A great color printer to compliment the 5310n is the Dell 2130cn toner printer.
The design of the Dell 5310n is very straightforward. Its output tray sits on top and the input tray is at the bottom of the unit's front. The control panel is located on the front of the printer, which sometimes makes the screen difficult to read, especially if the printer is placed on a low surface. The buttons are located below the screen, making them sometimes difficult to use as well. The printer measures 15.2 inches by 17.4 inches by 20 inches and weighs 43 pounds, so it may be a little too bulky for offices where space is tight.
A big perk for this printer is the toner cartridge that works with it. Installation for the Dell 5310n toner cartridge is very easy, however usually does not have to be done very often. At 20,000 pages per unit, the Dell 5310n toner cartridge can keep up with this workhorse of a printer.
The 5310n is built to handle a fairly high volume of printing, but it has the potential to handle even more with its many expansion options. If its input paper capacity is not enough for your needs, it can be expanded to a maximum of 2,600 sheets by adding up to four additional drawers, with capacities of 500 sheets each. Paper output can be expanded as well, up to a maximum of 2,200 sheets. These paper upgrades are not cheap, however. The printer comes with 128 MB of ram as standard, which will support a fairly large number of users, but this can be expanded to a maximum of 640 MB of memory if more is needed.
Print speed is a stunning 50 pages per minute, for one of the fastest speeds available on the market. Print quality is excellent, with detailed text, even at small fonts. Graphics quality is clean, with almost no noticeable problems with gradients or photos.
Overall, the Dell 5310n is a speed demon that can support an ever-growing number of users with its many expansion options. Its high volume printing capabilities will be able to keep up with any growing business.
