Following up on the Dell announcement of the 1135n monochrome multifunction printer and our 1135n video first look yesterday, we have an exclusive full review of this brand new 4-in-1 device featuring print speeds up to 23 ppm, a print resolution up to 1200 dpi, and a monthly duty cycle up to 12,000 pages.

Dell?s latest addition to their ever expanding SMB lineup certainly looks like a shining star with its compact build and sleek design but how will it compete in its class?  Find out now!

The Dell 1135n is incredibly compact for an all-in-one laser printer, nearly eight inches shorter than the Dell 3335dn monochrome multifunction unit we reviewed earlier this year.  The approximate dimensions for the 1135n are 16 x 16 x 13 inches.

I liked the all matte black exterior with the uniquely designed top that sinks down with a push of the button, decreasing the height by almost a full inch.

Like other MFPs, the 1135n features an automatic document feeder (ADF) on the top of the machine for easy scanning, copying and faxing of large documents.  The ADF can accommodate documents up to legal size.

The color flatbed scanner, located directly beneath the ADF, can handle media up to 8.5 x 11.5 inches.  The 1135n features an optical scan resolution up to 1200 x 1200 dpi in BMP, PDF, TIFF and JPEG formats. 

The control panel on the 1135n stretches across the front of the printer with the two line display, three device keys and four arrow navigation pad in the center.  The 1135n also features a numerical key pad, seven additional quick keys and a power button on the control panel.

Flip open the front of the 1135n to access the solo monochrome toner cartridges.  Also located on the front of the 1135n is the single sheet multipurpose feeder.

Beneath the multipurpose feeder, users will find the 250-sheet paper tray.  The 250-sheet tray can handle media up to legal sized documents.

All connections are located on the back of the 1135n.
