If you've shopped for a business printer lately, you know that there is an overabundance of products on the market.
Sometimes it can be difficult to identify the printer that has the right combination of performance, affordability and durability for your business.
Dell has established itself as a serious contender in the business laptop market. But Dell also offers a complete line of business printers that meet the criteria that are most important for small business owners. You'll need to evaluate each printer based on the features you need to perform your most common printing functions. Additionally, Dell offers a variety of models in each printer category at price points that are affordable for the average small business.
- Dell Inkjet Printers. Inkjet printers are popular business solutions because they offer flexibility at an affordable price. Dell's inkjet line is no exception. All of Dell's inkjet printers are multifunction devices with printing speeds in the neighborhood of 30 ppm. Many come with wireless networking capabilities as well as traditional USB connections. Although you won't necessarily get the quality of a laser printer, the cost is attractive at around $100 for a decent model. The downside of inkjets is that they are limited to a 3000 sheet/month duty cycle.
- Dell Color Laser. Color laser printers are often used as the workplace's primary printer. The Dell 3330cn model (Approximately $450) serves up 26 ppm for color printing and 31 ppm for monochrome. Monthly duty cycle is significantly larger at 70,000 sheets, and the printer's maximum paper capacity is 950 sheets. Dell color laser printers give users access to a broad range of features including duplex and wireless connectivity.
- Dell Black & White Laser. The primary advantage of Dell's black-and-white laser product is speed and image clarity. For $420 you can buy the Dell 3330 DN, a 1200x1200 dpi printer that churns out 40 ppm. Duplex, expandable capacity and optional memory upgrades make this printer a viable alternative for companies that are less concerned with color printing then they are producing fast, crisp copies.
- Dell Multifunction Laser. Dell multifunction laser printers are an all-in-one solution for your printing and scanning needs. These printers are network ready and feature built-in wired or wireless capabilities as well as all of the added features that come with Dell's other laser printers. Expect great print quality from its 1200x1200 dpi resolution and fewer hassles from its 850 sheet maximum holding capacity. Although at $899 it is more expensive than Dell's other products, its advanced functions may make it worth the investment.
The bottomline? Dell printers are reliable, high-quality printers. For business owners who are in the market to buy a printer, visiting the Dell website is a smart move.
