Dell 2155CDN – Review

Overview:

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.

Pros:

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 machines.dell-2155cdn-front

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.

Cons:

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.
