Probably the least appealing aspect of the Dell C1660wis its pricey … Probably the least appealing aspect of the Dell C1660wis its pricey toner. The unit ships with 500-page starter cartridges. Black toner is sold in £38.50 ex VAT, 1250-page units; the 1000-page cyan, magenta, and yellow cartridges also cost £38.50 each (that's a little over £55 each). There are, unfortunately, no high-capacity supplies.

Had a look around and you can get much cheaper compatible toners. Quite tempted to order.

how long they last depends on how much you use it.
but I bought the non-wireless model 1.5 years ago via a Tesco deal posted here,still going strong!
I've been printing every once in a while,not every day or printing 100s of pages of course.I'd say my usage is an example of a normal home user.
very pleased with this printer.quality is very good,I will never ever touch an inkjet printer again even if they pay me!
Laser/Led is the way to go.
quality and reliability is outstanding and 1000000x better than any stupid inkjet printer.

Great printer. I have 2 and highly recommend. There is a version with built in scanner/photocopier kicking about on amazon and others too.

Cartridges supplied are dell part filled. Don't buy a replacement. Get the Chinese compatibles from a uk eBay seller for about 10 each (2500 pages) or less for a set of four.

The print quality is excellent and wireless hassle free set up easy too. You can print from your smartphone via dell app too. No inkjet comes close

Nonsense, you need to spend ridiculous money on laser to start competing with inkjet when printing photographic images (i.e thousands $£$) Not to mention toner isn't cheap even when you re-fill your own, then there is drum replacement which is very expensive.

Don't get me wrong lasers have their use and advantages, but for the average user who wants to 'cheaply' print out photos and print DVDs ..etc then a decent cannon inkjet and compat. inks is both cheaper and significantly better quality.

errrrr this was 53.99 all through last summer

How usable are these colour lasers for photo printing? Acceptable for casual use, like a 6x4" family photos on the mantelpiece type of thing? (Another piece of string question I know...)

I disagree,I've bought 4 inkjet printers over the years (HP,Canon,Epson and Lexmark).all basically disposable junk now gathering dust in the storage.neither of them lasted more than 1 year (for basic home use).and cost of original cartridges were so high that I couldn't justify buying them vs a new all in one.I also bought compatible inks and they all failed miserably after a while (dried up,clogged,and printer stopped working).

with this Dell Laser model (actually LED),I had it for 1.5 years and I've been using exact same amount as usual,still going strong with the supplied toners.
also compatible toners were available on ebay for around £30 isn if I'm not mistaken.

Laser printers are not that good at printing photos,ink jets can print much better photos on photo paper.that's the one single advantage of ink jets,but for printing text,documents,charts,graphics etc the quality and cost effectiveness of a laser is just un-matched by those poor water-colour type quality of ink jets.

if you buy a discounted and cheap laser,and don't intend to use it specifically for printing photos,then laser is the way to go.I've personally experienced that and I'm sure anyone who uses a laser will never go back to those rubbish ink jets.

also for photo printing purpose,there are those small dye-submission photo printers that are superior to ink jets or one can always use free trials of professional photo prints provided all the time by all print companies.

For photo printing I use photo labs and I have Dell 1250c (that looks a lot like this one) for occasional letter, tickets, whatever kid draws in MS Paint etc kind of work. Paid £50 for the colour laser (actually it's LED) and set of £19.99 ebay toners I installed 18 months ago isn't even halfway empty. They also don't get try and clog unlike my old inkjet where £10 ink cartridge had to be replaced after month or two sitting unused.

And with typical home use, your children will be retired before drum/fuser will need replacement.

You obviously invested in poor inkjets tbf, I always research products before I purchase.
Modern Cannon inkjets do regular head cleans so clogged heads are a thing of the past. Obviously this does mean ink carts don't last as long but when you are paying less than a quid for decent compatible cartridges then it's really a non issue.

I have a brother laser which I use for text, but for photos, Blu ray disc printing ..etc domestic lasers really don't compare imho.

Yes, they clean heads indeed, we have some of those at work inc. £200-something fancy HP with wifi and lcd displays for cropping photos on (sic!). Ink cartridges in these are size of my finger nail, last for (as in most new inkets) and cleaning cycles seem to drain it even quicker than actual printing.

If printing photographs is your main reason to buy one, then you probably know how expensive per copy it is, not to mention colour calibration, which photo labs tend to have up to higher standard than home printers.

My experience with my Epson SX215 is different from yours. I've had mine for over 3 years now and it's been great. It did have a blip where it went a bit crummy because I hadn't printed on it for ages, so I had to go through a long nozzle clean process, but it sorted itself out in the end. Cartridges are super-cheap (i.e. £4 for 14 carts) - and I've used many different vendors. The print quality is still great for photo and better than laser printer.

I wouldn't consider using it for volume text though, because it's too slow.

Horses for courses though. This LP is a great deal, but in an ideal world I'd have two printers - a laser and an inkjet.

That might be the £150 delivered DELL C1765nfw printer, scanner, copier, fax with 3 years next business day Dell warranty (you might need to dig around to find that confirmation)

Or same without wif C1765NF around £130:

Set of compat "high capacity" toner around £25 set delivered
amazon.co.uk/gp/…AG/
Edit: 3yr C1765nfw warranty confirmed at ebuyer
ebuyer.com/415…120

still for printing text and documents,the quality of a laser printer is beyond any inkjet printer.
text or photos printed from an inkjet printer gets discoloured and loses quality over time.they just look amateur,and ugly.and have that "water colour on paper" quality.and that's true about even the most expensive one.
whereas text printed from a laser looks pristine and professional.never fades and looks like professional print.

also neither of my inkjet printers were poor or cheap,they were all good rated models bought after reading pages of reviews,it's the technology of the ink jets that is the problem.

unless you want the printer to be used for a kids amusement laser is the way to go.

I will only consider laser printers from now on,and for printing photos,I will use professional photo printing services (usually free).

is it able to store more than one wifi network, or do you have to re-programme it every time you switch (we use wifi hotspots on smart phones, as the BT offered landline speed is crap!)

not so sure about this particular deal, but be warned before you buy Dell laser printer. The running cost is massive. Will cost you fortune to replace the toner and drum, sometimes can't be replaced separately (not sure about this model)

The toner carts are expensive if you buy Dell branded ones.

I have a Dell 1320C that I bought about 4 years ago. It's been the best printer I've ever owned and the replacement toner carts cost me under a tenner each (there are 4) from Amazon. The wife printed out 6 copies of a 250 page document (don't ask...), a mixture of colour and monochrome pages, which exhausted a complete set of toner carts - under £40 for 1,500 pages, I doubt any inkjet could do that much work for that price.

Incidentally, I find it's OK for printing colour pics. I have a couple of A4 picture frames and putting a print-out from the Dell on good quality white A4 paper behind glass (well, acrylic actually) looks fine. It's not as good as a good inkjet on expensive glossy paper, but it looks OK to me...

The drum will be expensive to replace, it will be cheaper to replace the printer, but I think that the quoted life of the drum is around 100,000 pages, which will see me out :-)

I had the same email, too late for me as I ended up buying the next model up for a tenner more from ebuyer, but that extra amount is recouped on the first set of compatible toners as they are £15.99 a set compared to £26.99 for this one. The Dell c1760nw from ebuyer also comes with a 3 year next business day warranty.

So far fantastic, wireless seems ok via mobile app but I have it connected to the router via ethernet as I already had a cable run to the location, printing is fast and quality seems quite impressive, only tried printing photo's onto standard 80gsm but quality was great on that. Warm up time and print speed are fantastic.
