J’s Thoughts on The Dell 2155cdn All-In-One Printer
First, this thing is awesome. Especially if you always have to do a lot of scanning and/or emailing of the scans all over the world – something I’m constantly doing as I run the home office of Budgets Are Sexy Enterprises ;) (You need a contract for everything these days!). My favorite tool on this bad boy is the “tray scanner” where it’ll take a handful of pages and scan them all at the SAME TIME and then pop you out a nice compact PDF of the entire package – rather than scanning one at a time (bleh). It also has the function to then auto-EMAIL it to yourself, but sadly my tech skills have not been able to figure it out quite as yet. And that’s after spending 30 mins on it so far (a minor knock on this Dell printer, but then again I’ve never had luck installing any of my printers from try #1).
The second thing I love about this guy is that it’s super EASY and FAST to photocopy things, as well as to poke around and figure things out yourself on the main menu dashboard rather than having to read the directions (cuz really, who likes to do that?). The 2155cdn also comes with a FAX component as well, but it’s been a few years since I was last asked to fax something so I haven’t found a need for that yet in the 21st century :) But maybe you do?
Other pros and cons before we get to the specs: Really big and really heavy (both a pro and a con?), nice and black – looks super sexy, has multiple options to scan, and is super easy to install if you don’t need the wifi right away (mine’s currently just plugged into the computer itself). OH! One other annoyance – it doesn’t come with the cord you need to plug the printer into the computer, so I had to go find one in my box of cords and use that one instead. But again, I think all printers never come with one? The printer cartridges look kinda expensive too, but I’ve never had to compare “business” printers with “personal” printers before so it could be aligned just fine, I dunno… Overall though, a nice piece of machinery that will make anyone happy! Especially if you win it for free! :)
