If you are seeking an all around laser device for your home office or for your small business, the Dell 2155CDN will do everything that you are seeking. Compared to all of the other options in its class, this laser device offers more bang for the buck. The small business or home user seeking a multifunction device that will handle a great deal of printing might want to look past the Dell 2155CDN. It just isn’t built to handle a large workload. For those seeking a dependable laser device from a well known maker at a price that won’t break the bank, the Dell 2155CDN will be the best device of its kind for you.
Just because this device is not made to handle a large workload, that doesn’t mean that it won’t be up to the task if you need a workhorse printer. Dell has manufactured this device to handle up to 40,000 pages a month. 40,000 pages a month is unfathomable to the average small business owner or the average home user. They will never use their machine that much. But they can take comfort in the fact that the Dell 2155CDN could handle that much work if needed.
The rare large job that may come along will be handled smoothly by the Dell 2155CDN. Large jobs require a lot of paper. To accommodate a large task, the Dell 2155CDN has a 250 sheet capacity paper tray. A paper tray of that size will make it possible to handle a large job or several small jobs without the fear of running out of paper at a critical moment. And even if you never have a large job, you will appreciate the large paper tray because it means that you won’t have to fill it as much.
In print speed tests, the Dell 2155CDN holds its own against comparable units with its 24 pages per minute speed. There aren’t many devices of this size on the market today that can accomplice that feat. The average user will probably never need a faster printer but if they do, most of the larger multifunction devices on the market would be a better choice. But in all honesty, you will never find a better printer, scanner, copier and fax machine at the price of the Dell 2155CDN.
Considering the affordable price, the only sacrifice is print resolution. The Dell 2155CDN’s 600 x 600 dpi resolution is not what one would get with a high quality printer. If you need a higher resolution, you should consider another multifunction device.
