The Dell B1260dn is a compact monochrome laser printer that is suitable for a very small office or even a busy home. Its duplexing and networking features are an upgrade from the B1260 base model, and it offers a maximum speed of 29 pages per minute. Prices for Dell B1260dn printer toner can be a little high, however.
Buyers looking for a compact model for tight spaces won't be disappointed. The unit occupies a footprint of just 13.7x13.3 inches, and measures just 7.8 inches tall. It weighs 15.9 pounds without the Dell B1260dn toner cartridge installed, so it will be fairly easy to move by a single person. It can be connected directly to a computer via USB, or shared among multiple devices with the built-in ethernet port.
Print quality is a bit mixed. Reviewers note its sharp text output, but mention that photo quality is subpar for its class. Considering most buyers will probably print mainly text and graphics, this likely won't be a major issue. The 250-sheet input paper capacity is quite a good fit, considering its compact size, but it is not upgradeable, so users will need to make sure it fits their needs now and in the future.
The starter Dell B1260dn toner cartridge supplies only 1,000 sheets, so expect to replace it fairly soon after purchase. Replacement Dell B1260dn toner comes with a capacity of 2,500 sheets, but prices tend to be a bit high, so the cost per page for these replacement toners is not as low as some other models in its class.
The Dell B1260dn provides fairly quick speeds sharp text and graphics, all in a very compact design that is ideal for space-limited environments. Its high running costs could be an issue for users who do a lot of printing, however, and some models in its price range offer wireless support as well.
