First Look: Dell B1165nfw hands-on

1:33 /

A worthwhile purchase if you're shopping for a simple, monochrome laser printer and mostly print text-based documents.

Hey. I'm Justin Yu, editor for CNET. And this is a quick video overview of the Dell B1165nfw. So, this is a worthwhile purchase if you're shopping for a simple monochrome laser printer, and mostly print text-based documents. Since this can only print in black, it's not really a suitable machine if you want output photos and heavy graphics documents. Still, its multi-function name means it can also work as a stand-alone fax machine, copier and scanner as well, all for about 200 bucks retail. Since the price is so low relative to other laser all-in-ones, you're not gonna get a lot of fancy features like a colored screen, a USB port, or the ability to automatically print on double-sided copies. What you do get, though, is a generous 150-sheet paper tray on the bottom, a 40-page stack loader on top, and the ability to connect to the printer over WiFi without the need for a network password. That means it's a great option if you plan to have guests coming over into the office that need access to your printer. You can also hook it up to a desktop computer using Apple AirPrint or through your Google Chrome browser using Google Cloud Print, making it an even bigger boon for your work flow. So, for all these advantages, we're awarding this printer our recommendation for small offices and multi-user homes with wireless access and light printing needs. You can check out more details including speed test results on the full review at CNET, but that's gonna do it for this video. I'm Justin Yu. You just took a first look at the Dell B1165nfw Mono Laser Printer. Thanks for watching.
