Dell introduced seven new laser printers and one refreshed printer earlier this morning and we got two of the brand new additions in for review. We already shared the first look of the Dell B1160w, now it's time to turn our attention to the Dell C3760dn single function color laser printer.
The C3760 series will be replacing the 3130 series in Dell's color laser line and has the new product naming designation of C, identifying it as a color device. There are two models, the C3760n and the C3760dn, with the main difference being the latter offers automatic duplexing.
Find out more about the C3760 series and the C3760dn as we share our exclusive hands-on first look with information on build, design, specs, pricing and availability as well as plenty of photos from our test lab. And don't forget to check back soon for the full review!
Build and Design
The C3760dn falls into the advance class area of Dell's product lineup targeted at medium to large sized businesses. And its footprint is definitely worthy of this designation with approximate dimensions of 17 x 19 x 15 inches and weighing in at about 60 lbs with consumables.
As an advance class model, you'll find upgraded features you didn't see on the entry class models announced. The extended control panel is to the left of the 250-sheet output bin and it's centered around a 4-line bitmap based LCD with scalable font, alphanumeric key pad, one-touch power save, three simple quick keys (back, menu, cancel) and a four directional navigation. There are also four LED lights representing the four toner cartridges directly below the LCD and a front side USB port above.
Pull open the front panel to access the 150-sheet multi-purpose tray; pull out the bottom to access the 550-sheet standard paper cassette. The C3760dn is compatible with a variety of media and sizes ranging from labels and envelopes to legal size and letter size copy paper.
The C3760dn offers a cost per page of 10 cents in color and 1.5 cents in monochrome with the highest capacity cartridges, but customers have three capacity options to choose from depending on their print needs. The C3760dn is shipped with the standard capacity 3000-sheet page yield (CMYK) toner cartridges, but you can upgrade to high capacity 5000-sheet (CMY) and 7000-sheet (B) page yield toner cartridges or extra high capacity 9000-sheet (CMY) and 11000-sheet (B) page yield toner cartridges.
The C3760dn's drum kit unit averages 60,000 pages before needing to be replaced and be asked via the side pull down panel.
All connections are found on the back of the C3760dn. Customers have the options of setting up the C3760dn over an Ethernet or USB 2.0 connection or purchasing the optional wireless dongle.
