The Dell B1265dnf multifunction laser printer adds some extra features like duplexing and networking that some of its competition doesn't offer for the price, and it can reach speeds of up to 28 pages per minute. Home users might find it a bit large, however, and the cost per page of Dell B1265dnf printer toner is higher than expected.
Sometimes referred to as the B1265, this all-in-one machine can handle printing, copying, scanning, and faxing, but it isn't really compact enough to place on a desktop. It measures 15.1x16x13.3 inches, and its weight of 22.92, not including the Dell B1265dnf toner, might be a little hefty for home users. The flip-out control panel can fold back into the unit when not in use, which saves a little extra space. The 40-page automatic document feeder is a nice touch, and automatic duplexing is included.
Mobile printing has become increasingly important in the home and the workplace, and the B1265dnf offers multiple options. Both Android and iOS devices are supported for easy printing and many other mobile devices can be supported by using Google Cloud Print. A USB connection is provided for connecting directly to a computer, but the ethernet port for networking is likely to see more use.
Dell includes starter toners with their devices with small capacities, but the replacement Dell B1265dnf toner cartridge provides a yield of around 2,500 pages. Unfortunately, the prices for Dell B1265dnf toner cartridges tend to be higher than those of the competition, raising the operating costs considerably.
The Dell B1265dnf is capable of sharp text output, and its multifunction features are well-designed. Its design is fairly compact, but home users might still find it bulky, and high running costs make it somewhat expensive to own over the long run, especially for users who print large volumes.
