The Dell B1160 is a compact monochrome laser printer that is not much larger than the average inkjet, and comes at a very similar price. Buyers will benefit from speeds of up to 21 pages per minute and sharp 1200 dpi image quality. Dell B1160 printer toner is more affordable than most consumer machines, but is still a bit pricey.
In addition to the base model, the B1160w model also includes wireless support, so that the unit can be shared across a network. The device has a very small footprint and takes up minimal space, with dimensions of 7x13x8.5 inches, and it weighs just 8.82 with the Dell B1160 toner installed. Only two buttons are included on the control panel, so users will have to rely on the software for most operations.
Print quality can reach up to 1200 dpi, but the printer's default is 600 dpi, which tends to provide a good balance of speed and quality. The input paper tray can hold 150 sheets, but there is no option to upgrade its capacity, so what you see is what you get. A 300 MHz processor and 8 MB of RAM should be more than enough for the type of light use the machine is designed to handle.
Many devices ship with starter toners with reduced capacity, and the B1160 is no exception, providing only 700 pages before the supply runs empty. Replacement Dell B1160 toner cartridges can provide up to 1,500 pages, however, making them more cost-effective. Dell B1160 toner cartridges are reasonably-priced, especially for such a compact and affordable machine.
Personal users who don't want to spend a lot should find that the Dell B1160 fits their needs nicely. It doesn't offer much beyond the basic features, but it does its job adequately, with solid quality and good print speeds.
