Dell 2130cn Laser Printer Review

Via the power of emulsion aggregation technology, the Dell 2130cn Color Laser Printer not only prints high quality color images, it does them with a higher degree of quality than standard color laser tools unequipped with this technology. Along with network capability and an affordable price tag, the 2130cn makes color laser printing a viable option even for small businesses.

To add that extra bit of attention grabbing flair to your presentations and workloads, color laser technology is the way to go. Thanks to Dell’s emulsion aggregation technology standard 600 x 600 dot per inch resolution comes out looking clearer and sharper than ever before. Emulsion aggregation fuses color toner particles smaller than previous hardware could, resulting in less microscopic errors and ultimately a more accurate picture. The technology also requires less energy, making for a slightly quicker warm up time.

The Dell 2130cn Color Laser Printer is of manageable size, with dimensions of 15.7″ x 16″ x 16.3″ (W x D x H) and a total curb weight of a reasonable 41 lbs. Considering that the unit puts out 16 pages per minute in color, it could even be considered small for its category. Print jobs restricted exclusively to black and white will also process quickly, running at a decent 20 pages per minute speed. A 400 MHz processor assists in keeping larger projects from lagging behind on quickness, though advertised print speeds are adjusted for small, single digit paper coverage statistics, and the unit itself can pull off a full 90% coverage color image which will cause print time to be delayed.

Though no expansion slots are included in the The Dell 2130cn Color Laser Printer, the standard 256 MB on board memory can be replaced with memory cards capable of up to 1280 MBs, allowing for bright, full page color images to be processed with minimal delay. Paper capacity can also be expanded, with a 250 sheet tray coming standard with the unit and an optional 250 sheet drawer available for purchase separately. The multi function slot does not offer a storage tray, making maximum potential paper capacity 500 sheets.

A standard maximum output tray with a 150 sheet capacity also helps keeping even immense individual projects moving along without delay. Duplex printing is made automatic with the The Dell 2130cn Color Laser Printer, making two sided documents, whether black and white or in color, not only easy to produce, but also fast. Color duplexing also makes brochures and attractive handouts simpler than ever to concoct, adding possibilities to your work output that monochrome based businesses can’t match.

A variety of diverse paper types also help special media output to maintain a unique look, and include standard paper, along with coated paper and cover paper for glossy color prints. Label stock and even envelopes, as well as any type of recycled paper, are compatible as well. Though a wireless router is not included with the hardware, the The Dell 2130cn Color Laser Printer is fully network ready via a built in Ethernet port, making it possible for an entire small office to utilize the diversity of color laser technology.
