  • Excellent:
  • Good:
  • Average:
  • Bad:


  • The Dell 1130n's low-profile design, basic setup procedure, and decent output results make it a strong contender to be your next light-duty office printer.
  • Low cost. Suitably small for a personal printer.
  • Inexpensive for a networkable laser model; built-in Ethernet port; good-quality output


  • The 1130n's graphical output quality needs improvement, and it doesn't include Wi-Fi connectivity.
  • Although output quality is good enough for most business purposes, it's a touch below par overall.
