Dell 5130cdn review

 

It has the speed and features that a high-volume office needs, and the Dell 5130cdn is also on target with its nearly perfect print quality. The price is high, but over the long haul its superlow cost per page will save you money.

The Dell 5130cdn is a nicely designed workhorse of a colour laser printer with the speed of a thoroughbred. If it's a bit too rich for your blood, however, check out the HP colour LaserJet Enterprise CP4025dn, which costs a couple hundred less, is...

Dell 5130cdn Color Laser Printer

 

The Dell 5130cdn provides fast color laser printing for busy workgroups in small to mid-sized offices.

Fast. Good paper handling. Low claimed cost per page.

Slightly subpar text, and subpar photo quality. Can't print from USB thumb drive or memory card.

Dell 5130cdn Color Laser Printer Review - PCWorld

 

The 5130cdn's hulking, dullish-black exterior may look intimidating, but it houses a well-equipped and well-designed machine. The 256MB of DDR-2 standard memory is upgradable to 1.2GB. The standard paper handling includes a 550-sheet main tray and a...

Economical toner

Slight graininess or fogginess in photos

Everything a busy office needs is in the 5130cdn, including speed, great print quality, and features galore--plus supercheap toner.
