Dell V305


$99.00 Released September, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very quiet while printing, even paper handling mechanism makes fairly soft clicks. Prints come out quickly once the job starts. Installation is quick and easy, driver install program does all the work.

The Cons:Paper jams are fairly common, needs to be watched when working. Print jobs take a minute or two to begin. Included ink will only manage about 30 sheets before requiring a replacement.

It prints photos, documents, and online images in 24ppm b&w and 18ppm color high-speeds, while also maintaining a high-quality 4800x1200 dpi resolution.
