How much would it cost to get a toner for these? Or are the existing toners refilable?

.. we recently paid £60 for 4 (black, cyan, magenta and yellow) refills that are good for 2,000 (hi-capacity) prints at 5% coverage. The refills are available from many online stores that deal in refill toner. There are a number of reliable sellers on eBay too. You could buy Dell branded toner cartridges, but these are highly expensive (>£50 each for 2,000 prints @ 5%). The refills we use seem fine - no complaints :thumbsup:

very low resolution, i guess a rebadged lexmark...gulp!
lousy cartridge size....2000 pages from one set of laser carts is pathetic....my laser albeit mono samsung does 7000-10000 from one cart
then again still a good price for a reasonable colour laser

.. the difference between 600dpi and 1200 dpi on copy paper is virtually negligible, especially with colour (registration becomes a significant issue at higher dpi - not an issue with a mono printer). I'm not surprised your mono printer has a much higher capacity - it only has a single cartridge, so it is a bit of a bogus comparison. :) If I were crazy, I could attempt to print 2,000 black, 2,000 yellow, 2,000 magenta and 2,000 cyan making 8,000 prints ;-)

This deal has been on here a few times, the toner carts that came with mine were full non original. I've had no problems with this printer. Be prepared for IJT Direct to call and email you a few times to try and sell you more toner. Just keep telling them you're a home user they get the message and leave you alone. Very happy with this printer:thumbsup:

No phone calls yet just a couple of emails and I am also very happy with this printer and spare set of toners. It is not small if that is an issue for you check the dimensions.

Funny I was looking at the past postings yesterday using the search button, as I was thinking purchasing one.

Can only echo the other posts, great printer, excellent price.

I was pleasantly surprised at the graphics quality. It's not photo quality, but its pretty decent (or maybe I just had low expectations).

I've had mine nearly a year and am still on the first set of toners despite a year of my daughters homework!

Oh one thing, it's pretty big! take note of the dimensions (esp. the height) as you'll need a big desk for it to be a desktop...

perhaps its time to change from my mono hp...hot

Great printer, just bought two for work last week, very happy with them.
#12
last time ppl mention it came without the starter carts?
#13
Mine came with 2 sets (3 colour & black) of the unbranded toner. I believe the theory was that they resell the Dell cartridges to offset the cost of the 'free' printer.

But you never know your luck!

NB, I love that networking is built in! My wife and daughter don't have to wait to find out if my PC's on to print!

Reviews and suppliers for the unit's Imaging Drum indicate a usable drum life of only 20,000 pages, although one review mentions 200,000 - which would be more like it. The Dell supplies website also states a life of only 20,000 - surely this cant be right?

The drum is what supplies the toner to the page and costs around £120, anyone have one of these printers and could confirm Imaging Drum Life please/?

#17
I saw that fishmaster, thanks, so the drum unit will need replacing every ten sets of cartridges on average, though still a good deal.
#18
This printer is designed for home use. But be aware as with all colour laser printers it is big and heavy.

Don't buy it for high volume printing ( i.e business use) as it works out expensive with the very low drum life and the small toner cartridges.
As already stated, you don't get the Dell starter toners in the box. you just get the IJT compatibles.
#19
I bought one of these last time the deal was on £120, bloody good home printer. Still using the 1st set of toners 7 months on. And one major benefit for home users, if you only print every week or so, toner doesn't dry out like ink jet technology. So it effectively works out much cheaper than ink jets.

Only major downside, it looks minging.

Good idea;-) Actually I use a mobile that just sits on my desk. As I do a lot of on-line shopping occasionally there have been problems with an order. I have found that companies are less likely to just cancel the order if they can contact you via phone:thumbsup:
#21
Great find for me as my inkjet is costing almost twice as much even factoring in replacing the drum at 20,000 (which is about every two years for me). 600dpi is fine for most printing and I still have the inkjet for the photos :)

Thanks OP H&R

The cheap way to replace the drum in these could be just to buy a second printer! As the 2 sets of cartridges that come with it cost about £80 the printer + drum is effectively costing about £53 which is less than I've seen any drums advertised for.
#24
I bought one of these last time at £120 delivered (to be honest, the toners are worth about £80-90 anyway depending on where you get them from). The printer is £180 on Dell's website alone.

I got through the first set of toners after 5100 pages, mixed black and colour. Another good thing is that when I put the service tag into Dell's website it says the printer has 2 years next-business-day onsite service (a £70 upgrade with Dell).

So £180 worth of printer + £70 worth of warranty + 2 sets of (allbeit remanufactured) toners for £130.

Is the warranty valid when using remanufactured toners?

Excellent deal. Just ordered one. H&R added.

Does anyone know if it has wireless printing or do you need to hook it up over usb?

Cheers

Neither. Looks like its a network cable (rj-45 connector). This would just plug into your router or access point.

They wont cover you if the problem is caused directly by the toners (i.e. if one of them is dodgy and blocks everything up) but they will cover you in general. The web UI has a page to specify if you are not using Dell toners, which states:


CAUTION:
Using non-Dell-brand toner cartridges may make some printer features unusable,
reduce print quality and decrease the reliability of your printer.
Dell recommends only new Dell-brand toner cartridges for your printer.
Dell does not provide warranty coverage for problems caused by using accessories, parts, or components not supplied by Dell.
Using "Copy Printer Settings" will not copy the settings to another printer.

Why on earth would you vote cold, the deal is an excellent deal. It is nearly £200 on Dells site with only one set of carts.

I also think Indian call centres are the pits, Virgin Media are completely useless BUT I have a Dell laptop and have had to contact them on about half a dozen occasions.
They are far far better than Virgin or any other Indian call centre I have come into contact with. I can understand what they say and they also seem to know what they are actually talking about.
I would certainly give them the thumbs up, from personal experience.:thumbsup:

Unfortunately their wording really gives them carte blanche to claim any fault is somehow related to using non-Dell cartridges and to deny you recourse under the warranty, so don't rely on it.

Put the old carts back in before getting it repaired / looked at ;-)

Dell generally don't care (not for on-site warranty anyway). My old laptop failed and they repaired it even after I'd upgraded the RAM and Hard Drive, and also tweaked with the thermal pads (screen broke - nothing I'd caused :P).

I haven't personally had them out for this printer, but for a printer at my friend's office they basically came out, confirmed it was broke and just ordered another one (as stated above these are just rebranded lexmarks - Dell don't make them, and dont really know how to support/fix them, other than basic troubleshooting).

Great find, I was looking for a new colour laser printer, this sets me up for a while. Thanks!!:thumbsup:

No, it's normal for a basic colour laser.

Again, no. These are perfectly normal figures for a basic colour laser.

eh, i wasnt saying my mono printer prints more....its low for ANY laser numpty

600dpi is low for any laser - thats fact - and you WILL notice this difference (otherwise go to specsavers) and again i wasnt comparing my laser to this one

i know a damn sight more about printers than you do

stop making incorrect assumptions to back your wafer thin argument - anyone would think you worked for the company
