Print performance On monochrome print tests, the Dell n churned out The Good Affordable; good print and scan quality; easy to use; includes Ethernet interface.

Unfortunately, the Windows fax software won’t read Dell’s clever standalone address book. In most multifunction printers, the scanning function is considered secondary priinter that also goes for the scan quality.

Our text and graphic documents showed good printter and were generally sharp. Review summary The Dell n multifunction is a vendor-rated 22ppm monochrome laser printer. As a result, we quickly got the hang of entering speed-dial addresses–which can include symbols such as apostrophes and ampersands in their names–and reducing two or four originals onto one page n -up copies.

The grayscale scans were also very good, though not as impressive as the color scans because of a little dullness on the graphical patterns. The Dell neither impressed nor disappointed us with its print quality.

However, the network capabilities fall short of some multifunction printers’ we’ve seen that can send and deliver faxes across the network as well as send scans over the network.

The scan image matched the target document perfectly with great color matching and sharp detail. The Dell can’t do these things.

As with most fax-capable multifunction printers, the control panel is arrayed along a ledge just under the scanner glass.

Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. HP LaserJet We’ve changed, we promise. For one thing, the walk-up copy and fax features are easy to operate, thanks to the control panel and menus. Longer bars indicate better performance. And to add memory, you open a door on the left side to expose a memory slot, which avoids disassembling the case and exposing the controller.

The Windows installation was a breeze: On the control panel, Dell separated and clearly labeled the buttons for each function, and the hierarchical menus displayed on the LCD follow logical paths. Due to its small, letter-size-only scanner glass, the n takes an attractive, symmetrical form instead of the mushroom profile of other multifunction printers with a legal-size scanner glass.

In our tests, it not only scanned quickly but also produced nearly the best-quality color scans quality we’ve ever seen, not just among multifunction printers, but among scanners in general. Don’t show this again. Visit manufacturer site for details.

The Dell n is different. It’s small enough for a crowded home office but lacks features an individual user would want.
