Dell 2155CDN – Review


The Dell 2155CDN is a great all around laser device that is perfect for the small business or the home office user.   For a laser device, it offers performance that is infinitely better than most of the other devices in its class.  If you are seeking a printer that will handle a large daily workload, the Dell 2155CDN is not the machine for you.  But if you are looking for a solid laser printer from a quality manufacturer at an affordable price, the Dell 2155CDN will provide you with extraordinary value for the price.


The Dell 2155CDN printer can handle a large workload if needed.  The maximum monthly output is rated at 40,000 pages but a load like that is not recommended if this unit is to last for an appreciable time.  In reality, the average home user or small business user will never approach a workload like this.  Manufacturers realize that, but they want to inform users of the capabilities of their

If you do have a large job to handle, the Dell 2155CDN printer can take it on.  The paper tray can accommodate up to 250 sheets of paper.  A large paper tray will make it easy to deal with those large jobs that require a lot of paper.  It is a relief to know that if you need to print 40 or 50 pages at a time that your printer will not run out of sheet in the middle of a job.

The Dell 2155CDN performs well in print speed tests compared to comparable units.  This device can print up to 24 pages per minute.  For a printer of this size, that is a remarkable achievement and Dell should be congratulated.  If a user requires faster output, purchasing a larger multifunction device would be advised.  The Dell 2155CDN will save precious space as well.  There are few devices on the market that can offer a printer, copier, scanner and fax in the size of the Dell 2155CDN.  The opportunity to save space and money is just too great to pass up.


With the Dell 2155CDN’s affordable prices comes a few drawbacks.  The print resolution of 600 x 600 dpi is lower than some comparable units.  If you require high quality printing capability, this will factor greatly in your decision to purchase a laser multifunction device.   If you just require a reliable laser multifunction device with good speed and a fair price, the Dell 2155CDN is the best device on the market.
