The Dell C1765nfw printer has been criticised by one reviewer due to its high toner costs.

Martyn Clayden from PC Advisor described the machine as a relatively affordable colour laser printer for businesses, but claimed it misses "several obvious opportunities".

Mr Clayden praised its ability to send faxes as well as print, copy and scan, but noted that its control panel "jutters" unnecessarily over the front of the machine, meaning the output arm underneath it is often obscured.

"On the speed front, the Dell C1765nfw is a bit of a mixed bag. Mono documents emerge at the stated speed of 15ppm and colour at 12ppm. Printing an A4 photo from a memory stick took a zippy 15 seconds. Yet copying text documents from the ADF is grindingly slow," he continued.

With companies such as HP and Epson hoping their printers sell well this Christmas, Dell has been left in a competitive industry, though it recently released ten new machines.

Among these are the B2360d Mono Laser Printer, C1760nw Color Laser Printer and the C1765nfw Multi-Function Color Laser Printer.
