In November, Dell announced the B5465dnf A4 monochrome laser MFP along with nine other monochrome and color MFPs and printers. The B5465dnf, which starts shipping in January 2013, is based on a Lexmark print engine and is similar to the Lexmark MX711de. The Dell B5465dnf is a replacement for the 5535dn, improving print speed by 15 ppm from 55 ppm to 70 ppm and offering a more robust duty cycle of 300,000 pages versus the 5535dn’s 275,000 pages.

Summary

In November, Dell announced the B5465dnf A4 monochrome laser MFP along with nine other monochrome and color MFPs and printers. The B5465dnf, which starts shipping in January 2013, is based on a Lexmark print engine and is similar to the Lexmark MX711de. The Dell B5465dnf is a replacement for the 5535dn, improving print speed by 15 ppm from 55 ppm to 70 ppm and offering a more robust duty cycle of 300,000 pages versus the 5535dn’s 275,000 pages. Other upgrades on the new model include the addition of Dell Mobile Print and business-friendly productivity tools like card copy, form printing, shortcuts and a remote operator panel. The B5465dnf offers automatic duplexing and ships with a standard paper capacity of 650 sheets that is expandable to 3,300 with various configurations. It offers a resolution of up to 1,200-by-1,200 dpi and comes standard with a 150-sheet duplexing automatic document feeder. While Ethernet and USB connectivity are standard, wireless functionality is available as an upgrade.

The B5465dnf employs new consumables, most of which are compatible with another new Dell A4 monochrome laser printer, the B5460dn. The monochrome cartridges are available in 6,000-, 25,000- and 45,000-page SKUs. The 6,000- and 25,000-page-yield cartridges can be used in both machines, while the 45,000-page-yield cartridge is exclusively for the B5465dnf. Curiously, the B5460dn also accommodates a 45,000-page SKU, but it has a unique part number. The B5465dnf ships with a 25,000-page cartridge. Like other machines based on engines sourced from Lexmark, Dell markets Use and Return cartridges for this device, providing customers with a discounted price if they agree to return the empty core. Non-Use and Return versions of the cartridges are also available. The 100,000-page imaging drum is available in the standard and Use and Return versions. The fuser unit prints 200,000 pages, and the 3-year Limited Hardware Warranty includes fuser replacement.

Cost per page on the new MFP is 1.1 cents (not including the fuser unit), the same as the machine it replaces. When compared to the 1.20-cent CPP on Lexmark’s similar model, the MX711de, Dell’s B5465dnf is the winner, but the $3,609.99 price tag is heftier than the $3,199 price point Lexmark uses for its MX711de, which offers identical print speeds and duty cycles. The B5465dnf will be available in the Americas and the EMEA in January 2013.
