Three Color Laser Printers To Consider
Color laser printers can give you the best of both the colorized and quality laser printing worlds. There is just nothing like color when you are perusing a piece of paper to get your attention. Laser printing technology makes the text, graphics, or photos visually pleasing to look at and read.
DELL 3130cn COLOR LASER PRINTER
The Dell 3130cn Color Laser Printer is a great starter printer for a small office. It has a pages per minute (ppm) speed of 25.3 in testing sessions performed by PCWorld reviewers. Black-and-white documents print at 31 ppm, and graphics can print at 5.7 ppm. This printer also won an Editor's Choice award for 2009. This printer can provide output of up to 70,000 pages per month. The resolution for high quality documents is 600dpi x 600dpi, and a nifty feature about this printer is that it will continue printing in black if your color cartridge runs out during the printing project. From this color laser printer, you get both high quality black-and-white printing as well as vibrant color when you need it. This laser printer can also be networked throughout your office. Dell's ColorTrack remote control allows management to keep track of print jobs and the different departments that may send projects to the printer. With the Dell Toner Management System, the printer automatically lets you know when your toner is getting low so you never have to worry about running out of ink. The printer also provides one year of on-site customer service by the next business day and toll-free technical support around the clock, 24/7.

This Lexmark printer utilizes high-quality PANTONE® digital color technology for the most vibrant hues available.
