BUILD AND DESIGN
The Dell 2350d is a single function monochrome laser printer, so there isn’t much to it in terms of standalone features. In fact, the 2350d looks like a medium sized black box; the 150-sheet output bin and small control panel are the lone distinguishing features that it is, in fact, a printer.
Which is not necessarily a bad thing; it sort of blends into an office environment and with the approximate dimensions of 10 x 17 x 17 inches, it fits on most desktops.
The above mentioned 150-sheet output bin and control panel sit on top of the Dell 2350d. The control panel consists of a two line backlit LCD and six keys: menu, back, enter, cancel and two directional arrows.
Press a small button on the right hand side of the 2350d to open the entire front panel and access the single black toner cartridge. The 2350d is available with a standard capacity cartridge that yields approx. 2,000 pages, or a high capacity cartridge that yields approx. 6,000 pages.
Pull the small handle on the front of the 2350d to open the 50-sheet multi-purpose tray, perfect for a variety of envelopes, labels, etc.
Beneath the 50-sheet multi-purpose tray is the 250-sheet standard paper drawer, compatible with media ranging from 4 x 6 inches to 8.5 x 14 inches. For customers in need of a larger paper capacity, the Dell 2350d is available with a second 550-sheet paper drawer, taking the total paper capacity up to 850 sheets.
On the right hand side of the 2350d, users will find a small panel for accessing the memory. The 2350d features a 400 MHz processor with 32MB of memory standard, but customers can purchase additional memory for a maximum memory capacity up to 160MB.
All connections are found on the back of the 2350d. The Dell 2350d offers Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and Parallel port options.
