Dell claims that the B1165nfw has a printing speed of 21 sheets a minute which we found to be pretty accurate. The print quality for text is crisp and clear for any font types with just very little bleeding. Images however, is a little disappointing as they were very grainy and also had quite a bit of banding. In addition to that, it also has an ecofunction which reduces the power used for printing. The toner cartridge is recyclable too, hence not sacrificing the environment for quality. However, it would have definitely been much more eco-friendly if it could do duplex printing for offices and employees who prefer uses two sides of a paper.
