The Dell 5110CN Laser Printer
For much of the past two decades, inkjet printers dominated the consumer marketplace
because they were simply the smallest and most affordable models available. They
were easy to maintain and their ink cartridges cost far less than toner replacements
for laser models. Furthermore, inkjet printers could print in color while laser
printers were largely a black-and-white affair.
Today, that’s no longer the state of the printing industry. To seize on a
new kind of printer market, Dell has introduced its Dell 5110CN color laser printer.
It offers some distinct advantages to consumers and small businesses that traditional
inkjet printing simply can’t hold a candle to.
The Dell 5110CN laser printer sports a compact design that takes up just about as
much room on a desktop as a traditional inkjet printer. It is substantially taller
than inkjet printers, but that shouldn’t be an issue for most users who simply
need a better printer that takes up the same amount of actual desk space. The printer
is roughly 17 inches square, with a height of 20 inches. That’s respectable
for a laser printer of its quality.
Where the compact design ends, however, is the printer’s weight. It is heavier
than most printers its size, weighing in at 71 pounds worth of plastic, toner, and
Fast Printing Times Across the Board
Inkjet printers can print at a moderately fast rate when they’re in "draft
mode." That is, a low-quality print job that is sometimes barely readable. The Dell
5110CN laser printer, however, doesn’t take its time. When it is printing
regular, black and white pages full of text, it can produce 40 pages per minute.
That’s just over one page per second!
Color prints come out at half that speed, clocking in at 20 pages per minute. Even
so, among competing printers in its class, that is practically light speed. And
customer reviews of this printer reported absolutely no degradation in quality due
to the increased speed of printing. That will certainly be reassuring to those who
firmly believe that haste makes waste. In this case, the Dell 5110CN’s haste
simply makes good prints.
Networking and Other Features
It has become increasingly common for businesses and homes to own one printer that
serves multiple computers, and the Dell 5110CN is capable of using a wired Ethernet
connection to plug into a network and serve each of those computers individually.
In addition, it supports all major letter and envelope sizes and comes with image
enhancement technology that improves its graphical print quality. It all thashe
basics and just the right number of extras to make it a really great and versatile
printer for many different environments.
For fast printing and compact size, the Dell 5110CN is a solid option for home and
small business consumers. It does just one job — printing — but it does
that job better than almost any competing model in the marketplace.
