Dell 1710n Review
With Dell 1710 getting props for being fast, economic and efficient but getting flak for lacking significant features, particularly network connectivity, Dell introduces its 'big sister,' the Dell 1710n. Basically a mirror image of the former, the Dell 1710n provides network connectivity that almost every office or workplace craves for plus more without sacrificing the speed, efficiency and overall performance that was identified with the Dell 1710.
Dell maintains the sleek design of the 1710 with the 1710n; it's practically the same laser printer with added features. Dimensions are at 247mm x 396mm x 355mm for its height, width and depth respectively, matched with a silver and gray finish on its side and body. It's still perfect for offices with limited spaces but want to get a robust performance for their printer. As with printing speed, the Dell 1710n offers up to 26 pages per minute (A4 type) while still giving crisp and detailed printed text or graphic at 1200 x 1200 dots per inch resolution. Memory is also upgraded with the Dell 1710n, expandable up to 160 MB compared to 1710's maximum memory at 144MB. A bigger memory enables the printer to handle more tasks without compromising its speed, and the Dell 1710n has enough memory at its disposal to handle such needs.
The most significant additional feature in the 1710n is its network connectivity, allowing printer sharing among workgroup members using a local area network. This is certainly beneficial to offices with multiple users, as it saves valuable time and allows office workers to be more efficient in their work. Ease of use is also a premium with the 1710n, as each package of the printer includes pre-loaded printer drivers. One only needs to plug the printer to a computer and allow the drivers to load and the 1710n is ready to go. The Dell 1710n also enjoys compatibility with a wide selection of operating systems, from Windows, MAC, and Linux platforms.
Paper handling with the Dell 1710n is pretty much the same with its predecessor, able to handle, A5, JIS B5, executive, folio and statement papers. It has a standard 250-sheet paper tray, with an optional 550-sheet to bring its total to 800, quite a capacity for a space-saving laser printer. Print resolution is still at 1200 x 1200 dots per inch, ensuring quality monochrome prints for text and graphics.
Even with the inclusion of the network printing capability in the Dell 1710n, it's still lacking some significant improvements over its predecessor and other printers of the same class and caliber. Image or graphic printing is still at best decent, which is almost the same with the 1710. Another issue is the capability of the feeder to adjust paper feeds, as the separate feeder is set manually. Also, duplexing could certainly use an automatic feature instead of manual, in order to truly maximize the speed and power of the Dell 1710n.
