The size of laser printers is often a factor for home or small office users. Dell has come up with a solution of sorts with its 1250C, which at 15.5 inches wide, 11.80 inches deep and 8.9 inches tall is probably the smallest colour laser printer around. The 1250C is done in dark black and should sit neatly on a workstation. It is connected to a computer using a 2.0 USB cable. Its basic controls have graphically lit indicators that make it easy to operate. However, a first time user might take some time to configure it as the pictorial instructions are not user friendly. To turn it into arguably the world’s smallest colour laser printer, Dell has used an advanced LED technology over the common laser technology. This not only helps the form factor, but also contributes to producing vibrant colourful reproductions. On the test bench, it produced both monochrome and coloured prints rapidly. While Dell claimed a print speed of 12 mono and 10 colour prints per minute, we actually got 16 mono and 12 colour prints per minute. If there was anything missing in the printer, it would be Ethernet and Wi-fi connectivity, and perhaps even more importantly, a USB 2.0 port.
