The Dell 1100 printer is an ideal device for people doing average jobs. Users are able to get good quality graphic and text printing projects with this machine. When used with the Dell 1100 Toner, it is easy to get about fourteen pages per minutes, too. If more pages per minute are what you are interested in, it may be best to buy a different printer.
The printer is made with the signature colors of Dell, grey and white. If the machine’s weight is important to you, be aware that it weighs about twelve pounds (this is typical of most printers). The only feature that users may find unsatisfactory may be the permanent open tray. The tray may build up dust. Therefore, you may need to clean it often.
This printer provides customers with user friendly LED screens and buttons. If there is a problem such as a paper jam or the ink running low, you will be notified via LED screen. To remove a paper jam, simply remove the toner cartridge that is behind the main door and the problem is solved easily. As far as buttons go, there is an obvious button that allows users to cancel a job or feed paper. The printing tray can hold up to fifty pages at once.
Since none of us likes to struggle with technology, Dell has made it easy to replace ink cartridges. If you experience a paper jam, you can easily reinstall the toner cartridge into place without much trouble. If you are interested in purchasing this printer, be sure to purchase the required USB cord that is needed for installation but is not included.
When you have purchased the printer and are ready to install it, just simply remove the instructions and follow the diagram. A poster with systematic illustrations is included and provides easy to follow steps for getting the printer connected and installed. People with Windows are the only ones who can use the Dell 1100. Others will have to find another product.
The greatest resolution provided by this printer is 600 x 600 dpi. The level of resolution rivals similar products in the same price category. The machine has 150 MHz which allows it to run quite smoothly compared to similar printers. The major downside to the printer is the 2 Megabyte RAM. Due to this RAM capacity, users can only use grayscale graphics, text and spreadsheets. Use a Dell toner cartridge to get the best results.
The kit that comes with the printer contains a 1,000 page-yield cartridge. This is considerably lower than the competitions’ 2,000 page-yield cartridges. However, if you would like more ink, you could easily go to the store and purchase a 2000 page-yield cartridge. The Dell 1100 prints pages that cost about 3.3 cents a piece. HP and Canon are a little cheaper per page.
This printer can print on pages between 3′ x 5′ to 8.5′ to 14′ with A4’s being the largest size. If you find that you need to complete big projects in a short amount of time, you may want to reconsider and go with a faster device. This printer can handle around 5,000 pages per month.
If you sum it all up, the Dell 1100 printer provides customers with a good printing speed and doesn’t cost too much. For a rebate, try sending in your old Dell printer and Dell cartridges in order to get some money back. This printer is best for simply jobs and for people who do not wish to spend a lot.
