Dell 1110 Printer Review
The Dell 1110 laser printer is designed with the small office or home office user in mind. Its affordable price and decent print quality make it a great choice for a light-duty personal machine.
The Dell 1110 laser printer seems to have been designed directly for the home or small office user looking to replace an inkjet with a higher-quality laser. If color printers are a necessity, the Dell 2130cn toner printer is worthy of consideration. In fact, its compact design is about the size and weight of larger inkjets, measuring 11.7 x 8.5 x 14.1 inches and weighing only 12 pounds. Its footprint is very small and it is generally fairly quiet, allowing it to easily fit on a desk next to a computer. The only part of the design that feels a little awkward is the front tray. The front tray must be folded down for paper output, which does take up more space in the front of the unit. This was probably intended to save space when the machine is not in use, but most users will likely leave the tray open rather than worry about forgetting to open it.
Paper capacity is good for its size and price. It comes with a single 150 sheet multipurpose tray that can hold all varieties of paper that the unit supports. Surprisingly for such an affordable model, there is an optional 550 sheet drawer available as an add-on, allowing the unit to grow with the changing needs of its user, though the drawer costs more than the machine itself. A duplexing unit is available to allow two-sided printing, but it is also more expensive than the machine itself. Still, it is nice to see such a variety of expansion options in a budget model.
The Dell 1110 toner cartridge has a good capacity. The laser toner cartridge has a capacity of 3,000 pages. The printer toner cartridge could be a little larger, but this should be enough for its target buyer.
Print quality is quite good. Text is very sharp even down to smaller fonts, though it tends to be a little lighter than some laser models. Graphics quality suffers somewhat, but this is typical for toners.
Overall, the Dell 1110 is a solid choice for a personal laser printer. Its compact size and affordable price make it a very appealing choice for users who only need a basic monochrome laser.
