Dell C1660w Color Printer – affordable LED color printing, wirelessly
By Databazaar Blog
The economically priced Dell C1660w Color Printer is built with LED technology. This compact printer can be easily connected on your wireless network. It also supports high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity so you can connect it to your computer using the USB cable that’s provided in the package. You can print from Android mobile devices to this printer; support for iOS is expected to be available in January 2013.
The 150-sheet input capacity and 100-sheet output tray are sufficient for personal printing, homework assignments and even for the printing requirements of small businesses. The drum and fuser unit have been designed to last the life time of the printer thereby ensuring low maintenance. You just need to replace the toner cartridges and stock up on paper. The toner cartridges that ship with the printer have a 500 page capacity (Black as well as C/M/Y). The standard replacement toner cartridges have yields of 1,250 pages (Black) and 1,000 pages (C/M/Y).
Print resolution is 600 x 600 dpi and you can get pretty decent print speeds of around 12 ppm mono and up to 10 ppm color when you print on letter/A4 paper. The printer’s standby and power saver modes keep energy consumption down when you aren’t printing. While you don’t get duplex printing, a port for a USB drive or an auto document feeder, the C1660w offers reliable color printing at a very affordable cost.
SummaryThe Dell C1660w Color Printer is ideal for personal use, in homes and small businesses.
