Just accidentaly tripped across this site. I have a 3100 at home and a 5100 here at work. Let me know if want a photo sample. I don't do photos with it so you'll have to tell me what to use for settings. I also don't have photo paper, but I can probably find some or buy it if you tell me the type you prefer.

I always use DELL computer but they do not offer DELL printer at local.



I have EPSON experience because I used EPSON C1900 to test color printing quality during developing PP synthetic laser paper for the applications such photography, outdoor horticulture, critical document and challenging using under harsh environment etc. The critical points are how to avoid melted-down PP synthetic paper during printing and improve color saturation when increase paper thickness. When it was applied to C1900 successfully, I also tested on EPSON C4000 and the gray level of finishing printing quality was remarkable! My foreign customers also helped me tested on C4100, C3000 and C1100 successfully but my test on C1100 was failure at local. I guess the problem is belt contact pressure with paper surface corresponding to EPSON service engineer advised he received many help requests to adjust. Due to get better color saturation quality, it must use thick paper setting (paper type setting) to slow down printing speed. Under this circumstance, suggest the environmental temperature or room temperature is better around 20 degree C or use electric fan to keep air circulating around printer.



As I know, both C1100 and DELL laser printer use Samsung print engine but EPSON 4000 series uses Xerox Tandem 4-2-1 engine.

Keep in mind that if you buy a Dell printer, you are forever tied to them for service and parts. While Dell doesn't manufacture their own printers, they get them from Xerox, Samsung and Lexmark among others and they modify them. Its very difficult to get service manuals from Dell (althiugh I do have some) and you'll have to call them for service and parts as well as toner cartridges.

I have been pleased with my 3100cn, even with standard 28 lb paper.

Personally I prefer matte/semi gloss finish, so that issue doesn't really bother me.

Hoever the 3100 has been replaced, haven't seen the new 3110 which looks to be a physically and likely guts different printer.
