Features and Functionality
High speeds are one of the hallmarks of the Dell 5110cn, which offers up to 40 pages per minute for black and white prints and 35 pages per minute for color. These speeds may be reduced for larger or more complex jobs, but the results are still offered with an astonishing speed that makes it easy to share the printer in a busy workgroup or office. The automated duplex feature is not as fast, but it does make it easy to create double-sided documents, brochures, and presentations.
The paper capacity on the Dell 5110cn is large at up to 650 sheets total. The 150-sheet multipurpose tray can be adjusted for use with everything from letter and legal-sized paper to envelopes of varying sizes. The 500-sheet standard paper tray also supports a variety of paper sizes, including A4, B5, A5, letter, executive, folio, and legal. Heavy and lightweight paper, transparencies, label stock, and coated paper are all options on the machine. Businesses with large print demands can take advantage of the expansion options, which allow for a maximum paper capacity of 2150 sheets in all.
Because of its enhanced office capabilities, the Dell 5110cn is a little bit larger than many other printers in the same class. The dimensions are relatively compact at 16.9" x 22.8" x 19.6" (W x D x H), but the machine weighs in at a hefty 71.4 pounds. Although you probably won't be moving it around that much, it does have the standard, sleek Dell design that makes it a streamlined addition to almost any office setting.
The monthly duty cycle on the Dell 5110cn is high at 95,000 pages per month, and the 400MHz processor ensures that the machine packs a powerful punch. Because it is meant to function in a larger business capacity, it comes with a large 128MB of memory, which can be upgraded to an incredible 1152MB overall.
The quality of the 5110cn is consistent with what users can expect from Dell. Laser color and monochrome prints are offered at up to 600 x 600 dpi resolution and 2400 image quality. Text is crisp, clear, and sharp, with a range of colors and gray scale for images and graphics. Suitable for use with brochures and professional-grade prints, the Dell 5110cn allows you to create in-house documents with speed and precision.
The Dell 5110cn is a network printer, with a built-in 10/100 BaseT Ethernet interface for easy connectivity. Other options include a high-speed USB 2.0 port and a Parallel port. Cables aren't included in the printer box, so users need to be sure and purchase supplies in order to get started using the printer right away. As with most Dell printers, it is best utilized with Windows-based operating systems. It is also compatible with Mac OSX and Unix systems. Anyone in need of assistance with the printer management software can use the Dell Printer Web Tool (for installation and configuration issues) or access Dell support online.
Replacement Dell 5110cn toner is available in four cartridge types: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. The high-yield cartridges allow users to maximize their investment in toner by offering up to 10,000 pages of use for black and up to 8,000 pages of use for color. The Dell Printer Web Tool helps users monitor toner levels, and the Dell Color TrackTM helps in budgeting printer toner supplies by monitoring consumables and limiting user access.
The Dell 5110cn printer is a large-capacity, high-yield laser option for the small- to medium-sized business.
