You probably know Dell for its laptops, desktops, and servers, but the company has also been selling printers for years, like the Cnf Color Multifunction Printer MFP. An LED printer is almost identical to a laser printer in function: It uses light to scan a photoconductor onto which toner is transferred to before being deposited onto a piece of paper. But instead of a laser beam directed to a specific spot by a rotating mirror, an LED printer uses a fixed array of LEDs that span the entire width of the print area, which is 8. It looks pretty much like most office MFPs, though its black case and square lines do make it an attractive addition to a small or home office.

It comes with the starter toner cartridges preinstalled, but changing them is as simple as opening the right side panel, pulling the used cartridge out, and inserting a new one.
The controls are located on a panel that sticks out near the top of the front side. This panel contains a small monochrome LCD that presents toner levels, and using a four-direction set of arrows next to the display lets you scroll through various menus and submenus to set functions such as copy options.
The leftmost four-button vertical stack is for using one-touch dialing when faxing. Next to it, between the one-touch buttons and the display, are another four buttons in a vertical stack that select the function you want to use — Copy, Fax, and Scan, with the bottom button bringing up the menu on the display.
Also on the control panel is a keypad for entering fax numbers or number of copies, a Color Mode button to select color or black and white printing, and a Start button to start copying or dialing a fax. Photo paper is not supported, nor is paper designed specifically for inkjet use read on to find out more about paper.
The printed output exits via a slot directly under the control panel. Scans and faxes can be accomplished using the glass platen under the flip-up top, or the page ADF built into the cover.
The MFP comes preloaded with the four color toner cartridges. Also included is a power cord, phone cord for fax, a large setup poster, a four-page guide, and a CD containing the print and scan drivers for Windows and Mac OS X, and PaperPort 14 from Nuance. A large page user manual PDF file is included as part of the installation and is accessible from the status screen displayed on the PC when printing.
PaperPort is a really useful utility, and makes it easy to scan and store documents, create PDFs, and serve as a substitute for Adobe Reader. Setup was easy and completely automated. It took about 10 minutes to completely install the drivers and PaperPort 14 software using a USB cable. The quick start poster and four-page guide are sufficient for the instructional task. We were pleasantly surprised when we started testing the Cnf.
While there is no special paper that Dell recommends, Dell does warn you not to use certain papers such as those specifically meant for inkjet printers.
Output quality on both papers was almost identical, with the less expensive Office Paper giving just slightly better results that were only noticeable when the prints were compared side-to-side. Comparing prints on the Hammermill and HP papers to our reference prints, the colors and saturation on both papers were very accurate. We were able to scan and import a test document directly into Picasa and the default scan quality, dpi, produced very useable scans.
Our big complaint is one that applies to a lot of printers, whether inkjet, laser, or, like the Cnf, LED: the cost of supplies. The large-capacity black cartridge is estimated to yield about 2, pages, with the color cartridge yielding about 1, pages. For a reasonably priced laser-like MFP, the Dell nf provides a lot of value. Output quality is very good. The Cnf not only prints copies at a reasonable and useful speed, but the ADF make copying or faxing multipage documents a breeze.
Two things this particular model lacks are Wi-Fi connectivity and a duplexer. Dell warns against using paper intended for inkjet printing, and most coated papers, like photo paper, are also a no-no.

When Dell first introduced its range of LED printers and all-in-ones, we were impressed by the size and print quality they shared, but disappointed by their price and running costs. The whole thing is topped off by a scanner and sheet Automatic Document Feeder ADF , with equally square-cut lines. The all-in-one has a small footprint, but it increases quite a bit when you fold down the front panel, which then becomes the sheet feed tray.
