Dell B1165nfw printer
The Dell B1165nfw monochrome laser printer gets work done quickly and efficiently with a price tag that makes sense for students on a budget. It doesn't sacrifice features (unless you really need a USB port) and the addition of cloud printing features through Apple AirPrint-compatible devices, a Google Chrome Web browser, and even Dell's own Android app should inspire confidence that this unit is relatively future-proof.
- Overall score: 7.2 (3.5 stars)

The good: The Dell B1165nfw is a dutiful monochrome laser printer that can also act as a standalone scanner, copier, and fax machine. It's cloud-ready with native support for Google Cloud Print, Apple AirPrint, and Dell's own mobile Android application.
The bad: The printer includes a "starter" cartridge with less-than-average capacity, no upgrades exist for the limited paper tray, and there's no media card reader.
The bottom line: As long as you don't mind not being able to print from a USB flash key, the Dell B1165nfw's healthy array of extra features and quick outbound print cycle make it worthwhile for small offices with wireless access.
