COM­PACT CO-WORKER

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

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.
