Pros

  • Speedy
  • Impressive output quality
  • Excellent features and control-panel interface

Cons

  • Very pricey toner, especially colors

  • Mac support is minimal

At A Glance

Dell's c2665dfn has all the features and speed a small workgroup is likely to need, but the cost of toner, especially color, is high even with the large-capacity supplies.
