Dell C1765nfw Specifications & Review

Dell C1765nfw seems to be a printer that is designed to be used by a small business, many of its features being things that they would appreciate. It comes with a small footprint, it has instructions that are easy to understand and it’s a multifunction machine, with all the capabilities you would expect from it. Despite all these advantages, it does have a couple of downsides that we’re going to talk about in this article.

You can use this printer to not only print documents, but also to scan, copy or to send a fax if that’s what you need. The compact size means that you can put it pretty much anywhere you need it. It weighs 15.5 kg and it measure 410 by 379 by 338 mm.

From a design point of view, this printer could be much better thought out. Unfortunately its control panel obscures the printer’s output arm partially and the entire machine is not that good looking. Another feature that we don’t like is the monochrome LCD, with 4 lines and 20 characters, which is used for the menu area. You can’t tilt it and you don’t have the option to preview a document you might want printed from a USB stick.

Dell-C1765nfwWhile it’s designed mostly for small businesses, it’s not a machine that should be used if it’s going to be worked with a lot. The input tray is only capable of holding 150 A4 paper sheets. The top has the Auto Document Feeder, which can copy an extra 15 sheets. If you need it, you can also use the Priority Sheet Inserter, which can be placed on the input tray’s top as needed.

One of the better features of this model is the connectivity options, where you have Ethernet, WiFi, USB 2.0, plus a button which is used for linking via wireless WPS. There is no auto duplexing.
