Dell has been manufacturing printers for quite some time now and just last month, they came out with the 1130n along with a barrage of other printers. The 1130n is a monochromatic, network ready printer, specifically targeted towards small and medium businesses.

In simple language, the 1130n is supposed to suit the environment where you have a small office with a few computers connected on a network best. But let’s take a detailed look as to what this printer can offer.

Design and Features
The Dell 1130n has a conventional design and is not a lot bigger than the Brother HL-3070CW Color Printer. The plastic being used to build the 1130n is of good quality and feels pretty sturdy. I personally liked the matte finish throughout the 1130n. Also, there is no part that feels flimsy or out of place. Even the printer’s feeding tray that has a capacity of 250 pages, fits in properly.

While fact is that you won’t be lugging a printer around everyday, the printer weighs in at 7.3 Kg and has dimensions of 360mm x 389mm x 197mm – neither too heavy nor too light. There are a couple of buttons on top for power and canceling a print command. The interface in the rear has a power inlet, an Ethernet port (that makes the 1130n network ready) and a USB port to connect to a single computer as well. All these ports are quite easy to reach and won’t cause any sort of hindrance whatsoever.

Setting up the printer for the network is easy. The drivers detect the network printer within seconds. Once that’s done, it’s possible to access the printer through a web interface. The features and performance settings are customizable. Users can play around with various settings for their page layout and quality of the printing. There are also options to alert either the system admin or the key user during different scenarios like empty paper tray or a paper jam and so on.

Overall, there aren’t any qualms in terms of design, build quality and the interface of the printer.
