The Pros:Relatively small for a full duplex printer with legal size paper capability. Installation on a network is very simple and quick. CD software is well designed, walks through setup easily with no guess work.
The Cons:Uses up Cyan very quickly, need to be ready to re-order fairly soon. Printer will not print anything if one of the colors is empty.
The Dell 2150cn is the same as the 2150cdn but without the automatic duplexing. In simpler terms, you have to manually flip the paper over to print on both sides whereas the 2150cdn will do this internally.
Otherwise they share mid range status in this series of personal and small business printers, and in this case print quality is enhanced by the laser printing process vs the speed and efficiency of LED printers also found in the line. Features like LAN and optional WiFi and expandable input tray size from 250 to 500 sheets make it flexible in the type of environment it is used. The internal processor is rated at 400MHz and it comes with 256MB RAM as standard, with the option to upgrade to 512MB or even 768MB with the optional DIMM. A multipurpose tray is included which lets you put an odd or different type of paper into the machine quickly without having to add it to the input tray, and up to 24 pages per minute can be printed at 600 x 600 dpi resolution. Dell offers different hardware/service warranty packages that are priced according to duration, depending on your business needs.
