    This review is from: Dell 1355cnw Wireless Color Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax (Office Product)

    This printer is much more than I expected. The network operation (wifi or ethernet) makes it very nice. You can also connect to it directly with USB, but I haven’t bothered with or tried that.

    First, the caveats. There are specific drivers for printing on Windows and Mac OS X. Scanning software is provided for Windows only. Linux (at the point of this writing, at least) can neither print to nor scan from this all-in-one directly. I use all three operating systems within my home. Here’s how I have it working from each OS.

    For printing:
    Windows uses the drivers provided. They work fine.
    OS X uses the drivers provided. They also work fine.
    As for Linux, I’ve been unable to find any CUPS drivers that work. I found a post that mentioned it uses the same drivers as the Xerox Phaser 600B, but I couldn’t get those to work. Thus, my Linux machines use the printer via OS X. On the Mac, I’ve shared the printer with the network. Linux CUPS can communicate directly to this Postscript virtual printer and print. (Note that this sort of setup does not work as easily with Windows sharing the printer).

    For scanning:
    While there is software included for scanning on Windows, I don’t even bother with it. This printer supports scanning directly to an SMB share or to an FTP server. That means I can create an SMB share on Windows, OS X, and Linux, On the scanner, I can manually select the scan quality and which computer should receive the scan. The scanner will scan to a PDF file (or TIFF or JPEG) and deposit in the SMB share I selected. It’s great. It’s easy. And it requires nothing proprietary anywhere. The tricky part is setting this up. You do it by adding entries to the Address Book via the printer’s web interface which is easily accessible by pointing your browser to your printer’s IP address. The web interface actually lets you change a lot of settings. There is a lot of power in there and it’s an unexpectedly nice surprise. You don’t need any of the software they include. You can do everything and more from this web interface.

    You can also have the printer email your scans to addresses you set up in the Address Book.

    Faxing:
    I haven’t tried faxing anything yet, but it seems like a fairly normal fax machine. Dial the number, scan and go.

    And then the quality — it’s impressive. I read a lot of reviews for color lasers as I was looking to buy one and a common complaint among the cheaper ones seemed to be issues with page curl, banding, and grain. I have not seen any of these issues with this printer. Even a photo that I printed on plain paper, which I expected to look somewhat newspaper-like in quality, looked pretty good. Based on that, I’m fairly confident that if I had used glossy paper, I wouldn’t really be able to easily distinguish it from my old inkjet (but I have not tested this — no laser-safe glossy paper on hand — so don’t take that as fact). However, unlike an inkjet, a laser printer generally cannot do borderless prints. This printer definitely has hard borders at the 8.5″x11″ edges, so if you do print a lot of photos, you may still want to stick to an inkjet. Personally, if I need to print photos, I just use a drugstore or discount store now.

    Speaking of inkjets… I’ve owned at least 5 different inkjets in the past decade or so, all by different manufacturers. Like an idiot, I kept buying from different companies hoping that THIS TIME I’d get an inkjet where the ink didn’t evaporate, or didn’t need to clean the heads when I wanted to print, only to use up all the remaining ink during the 10+ minute cleaning cycle. Invariable, by the time it was finally ready to print, I had to replace an ink cartridge. It was maddening and I was spending so much money on ink. I don’t print every day, and I hated that EVERY TIME I wanted to print, I had to go through the cleaning process and replace at least one (but usually 3) color.

    Now, I don’t worry about that anymore. This thing, like all lasers, uses toner. Toner doesn’t evaporate. It doesn’t have some unbelievably long cleaning cycle. It does take about 30 seconds to power up from deep sleep, but that’s lightyears ahead of my inkjet experience and far, far less frustrating. And this is the case whether it’s been 1 day or 1 month since the last print.

    So overall, the only thing that disappoints me about this printer is its lack of Linux printing support. But I knew that when I bought it, and at least, as long as I own a Mac, printing from Linux is possible.

    I just got this Dell AIO Color Printer. It is simply amazing. As a Mac User I was surprised it came with excellent Printer Drivers for the Mac. The color output is stunning. Photo Quality. if you have been looking for an All in One printing solution this is it.

    This review is from: Dell 1355cnw Wireless Color Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax (Office Product)

    The Dell 1355cnw all-in-one arrived well in advance of the stated delivery date. However, I believe the machine I received by been perviously used, even though the box was sealed and the inside packaging was in place.

    1. The toner cartridges were installed in the printer with the protective tape removed. The bumps during shipping had obviously left them well shaken and spilling.
    2. The printed hard copy “User Guide” was missing.
    3. The Mac installation disk was badly scratched, as if it had been dragged across a rough surface. I am a Mac user and the scratched disk kept ejecting. Finally I was able to copy the information from the disk to the desktop before it ejected spontaneously again.

    Once up an running the 1355cnw produced great copies. I decided to keep it, in spite of it being “not new” … rather than go through the hassle of a return.

    One thing to note, and I should have been aware of it, is that there is no scanner application for Mac included with the machine. You get a scanner but no way to use it. Hard to believe Dell can still get away with this sort of piety discrimination in this day and age.

    Not realizing it was not supposed to be included, I called Dell tech support & customer service to ask about the scanner app. The polite, but unintelligible, folks in India (I talked to several) didn’t know Mac user didn’t get a scanner app either … and one fellow wanted to charge me $99 to analysis and solve the scanner problem. My advice is avoid Dell Customer & Tech support if you have trouble with accents.

    I eventually bought a third party scanner app online from VueScan and am happy to report the the app and the scanner do a wonderful job in combination.
