The Dell 1320c Color Laser is a small, stylish printer that would be right at home in a small home office environment. It has a compact design, but in my opinion, it is a little bit too large to fit on your desktop. However, it’s low price of around $299 makes it super attractive. High resolution photos print quickly and have a very good color quality. It will print at up to 12 pages per minute in color and approximately 16 pages per minute in monochrome. It has network capability available, but not built in. You must buy the optional 1320c network adapter. Dell 1320c Toner cartridges have an output of either 1000 or 2000 pages, and with compatible Dell 1320c toner cartridges available, the low purchase price makes this a real deal.
