8. Okidata C7300dxn Review


Okidata's C7300dxn is a low-priced laser printer that is capable of executing documents at a relatively average speed – no more and no less. Certainly, it’s incomparable with the newest feature-rich devices, and moreover, there is a good number of aspects where its venerable age generates unacceptable for a comprehensive printer issues.


The printer’s size is 16.9"x16.9"x24.4", it weighs 105 lbs, but it is still compact enough to place it on a desk, just be sure that the furniture can deal with such a heavy load.

This laser printer can deliver 24 monochrome pages and 20 color pages per minute, which is, undoubtedly, an average result. It needs 10 seconds to start the first B&W printing job and 12 seconds to launch the tasks that demand color toner. The quality of the resolution is generally admirable – 1200x600 dpi should be enough for the biggest part of users.

2. Dell 3130cn Review


Several years ago the overwhelming majority of common people could not afford to buy a color printer, as these devices were too expensive and purchasing an inkjet unit was a more reasonable option. Luckily, due to the rapid development of hardware technologies, today it won’t cost you the earth to buy a laser machine. Dell 3130 is an outstanding example of an affordable laser printer; equipped with Ethernet controller and operating at 31 monochrome pages per minute printing speed, undoubtedly, it’s a rational investment to think over.


The first laser machines that appeared on the market were too bulk and heavy, and Dell 3130cn is not an exception, it’s bigger than an average model for sure. One can easily store up to 250 sheets of paper in the Dell’s cassette; a multi-purpose flip-out section can handle around 150 sheets of letter-size or legal documents. However, you can extend its capabilities by purchasing an additional 550-sheet tray and attaching it under the laser unit.

The Advantages of Digital Printing

When speaking of new trends and new market shifts within the printing industry, it has become increasingly more difficult to avoid talking about digital printing. Digital printing is the process of moving large amounts of information through the Internet and then being able to print this information at a desired location with advanced technologies like a digital press. A good example of this would be how the publishing industry is able to send information directly to printers and distributers who can then use large digital presses to print the material.

Digital presses have the ability to print large format based copy for the advertising industry and other promotional needs. What was once performed by traditional, offset lithography, is now performed by technologically advanced machines capable of churning out over a hundred pages a minute. So if you are in the business of producing a massive quantity of pages for books, brochures, and other needs, you may be wondering about the benefits of a digital press or digital printing in general.

Dell 2155CDN Review


Choosing the right multifunctional laser printer in the budget sector is always a challenge. Take a close look at Dell 2155CDN if you haven’t made your mind regarding what printing unit to purchase – the Dell machine is really worthy of attention and respect. Are you running a small firm? Or maybe you are in need of regular printing, copying and scanning…? A single hardware unit of Dell 2155CDN provides outstanding opportunities and extremely high delivery quality. Actually, you should not expect hundreds of thousands of pages to print each month from an inexpensive printer; however, it has an impressive number of strong points to stand out from the crowd.


40,000 pages to execute with no risks to damage the core mechanisms each month is not a problem with Dell 2155CDN. Perhaps, some category of office workers will find this result unimpressive, especially taking into account the fact that exceeding the limit may contribute to failure of the printer, but anyway, 40k of pages should be enough for an average active user or a small business. Forget about annoying “no paper in tray” critical notifications – the tray of Dell 2155CDN can easily hold around 250 sheets, so it shouldn’t get on your nerves too often.

The Importance of Sound Office Equipment

Although it is sometimes overlooked, having quality functioning office equipment at your business can save a lot of unnecessary hassle and wasted time. You want to be able to find the accurate balance between saving oncosts and purchasing machines that are capable of the workload. Should you buy used or brand new? Should you opt for one multifunction system or individual printers for each workstation? These are all important factors to consider when making the decision to purchase new office equipment.

An important factor you must also consider is figuring out the use or function of the new equipment that you are purchasing. If you don’t print much and have a relatively small office, it doesn’t make much sense to get the most advanced multifunction system on the market. Conversely, if you are a growing business that plans on expanding further, an investment such as this may be necessary.

Brother MFC-9325CW Review


The first and, perhaps, the main reason for purchasing Brother MFC-9325CW is totally affordable price, so it’s quite unreasonable to expect a bullet print speed or a breathtaking resolution. However, it’s a perfect option for those who are looking for a color laser multifunction printer and not willing to spend crazy money on it. This feature-rich device leaves an utterly positive impression – this real print Bro will never let you down.


What’s the point to complain about slow speed of printing when it comes to a totally budget device? It costs as little as four or five hundred dollars, but provides the ability of color faxing, scanning, copying and printing vivid colorful photos or documents - that makes thousands of customers forget about some technical characteristics and make a choice in favor of this incredibly attractive MFC. By the way, the operating at around 30 pages per minute devices cost more than $1,000. I guess most of you are now ready to sacrifice the print speed.

Will HP Trigger a Resurgence of Ink in the Office?

By Marlene Orr, Senior Analyst, Printers/A4 MFP, December 11, 2012

Not too long ago, both Kodak and Lexmark made public their plans to leave the inkjet market; HP went the other direction in late October, announcing its PageWide inkjet technology, which promises to bring the best of laser and ink to business users. HP claims the new Officejet Pro X series printers and MFPs (scheduled for Spring 2013 availability) will deliver speeds of up to 70 ppm (in General Office mode; up to 42 ppm in Professional mode) at about half the cost per page for supplies of competitive color lasers. Can HP deliver on these promises and how will these products fit into business environments? Though the products won’t be on the market for months, BLI saw the products in action at a recent analyst event and has taken a closer look at the technology and what it could mean to the office printing market.

PageWide Array: What it is and What it Does…

PageWide technology is a series of staggered, overlapping dies (groups of ink nozzles) that, as the name implies, span the width of the page. Rather than travelling back and forth on a carriage to deliver ink dots across the page as with traditional inkjet printers, the new HP printhead is stationary; the page moves under it during the imaging process. The most obvious advantage of having a stationary printhead is, of course, speed (case in point: one of the fastest desktop inkjets available, the Epson B-510DN, advertises a draft speed of 37 ppm, though BLI found actual tested speeds in default mode to be much slower). Another key advantage, according to HP, is quality, as it eliminates the banding that occurs from the back-and-forth motion, especially at higher speeds.
