Cons: Toner capacity is only 500 sheets (thats only 1 ream of paper) so this printer is only suitable for people who do occasional printing. Do not buy for an shared environment with high use... you will be changing toner all the time.
If paper is in a humid environment, it can cause paper curl & jams. This is a problem common to many laser printers. Some printers are more sensitive to humidity than others.
Conclusion: If you need a low cost laser printer that is easily moved around, this is perfect for the job. If you need high capacity printing...keep looking, this is not the printer for you.
The 1160W was easy to set up. It includes the USB cable needed for setup, which many printers do not. Setup for wireless was easy, and the 1160W quickly found our wireless LAN and accepted our security key when entered. We print to it from two machines, one running Windows XP and the other running Windows 7 without trouble.
The only disappointment was with the Dell mobile print application for our Iphones. It does NOT support the 1160W, though it supports several other Dell printers. In comparison, the Epson WF2540 mobile app was easy to install and worked instantly. Note the Dell DOES supply a printer app for Android devices which does support the 1160W, but we did not test it, since we are an IOS home.
The starter cartridge provides 1500 pages, a reasonable start, and replacement toner cartridges from Dell ($50) and aftermarket vendors ($25) provide 2000 pages at reasonable prices.
Noise level is typical of laser printers, but it is completely silent except when printer. Compact as laser printers go, and inexpensive (we paid $59) it is a useful addition for those of us who print enough pages to afford an alternative to ink jets.
We were disappointed by the mobile app, but the printer itself and the wireless setup of it was quick and easy. It's particularly convenient that it can be placed anywhere in range of your LAN, not just next to your router.
When the printer was delivered, set up was very easy and only took about 5 minutes from opening the package to printing my first document. The added feature of being able to print from my smart phone or tablet was a huge bonus for me. Right away, as I unpacked the box, I could see that it was built well, didn't feel cheap, and its compact size was another big bonus for me. I don't like to have to give up space for quality - and I was not let down. I have printed several documents over this first month of owning the printer and I can say that the quality is consistently good. Coverage is even and the ink comes out nice and dark, as it should with a laser printer.
Unlike ink jet printers that can come out faded and start looking uneven and inconsistent even strait out of the box, I don't think I'll ever have a problem like that with this laser printer. So far, I am very pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend it to others.
I tried to use the manufacturer-supplied printer manager software to connect to it, in the hopes of being able to manually set a static IP, but on my computer (a Mac running 10.10 Yosemite) the software could not locate the printer.
So, there's nothing I could do to make it work. Returned.
We had been using an Ink Jet printer that worked well, however it dried up between the Long Layups, and we would go through perhaps an entire cartage cleaning the heads...
This Dell printer is just the ticket for us. Over a year old it has worked flawlessly. Was (surprisingly) simple to set up on our WiFi network, and even simpler to use - just take it out of its box, plug it in any close AC outlet and add paper. No need to string up cables, move it close to the computers, etc.
We bought a printer to use for home-quantity printing jobs, with perhaps weeks time between them. Combined with its compact size I can say this laser printer could not fit the need better.
