For ease in connecting, the Dell 1720dn comes with Ethernet connections built in so it is easy to connect to via a network. However, there are also ports for directly connecting via USB and parallel cables. You may also opt to purchase an adaptor which allows you to connect wirelessly.

There are various ways this printer can help you and your workgroup to be as efficient as possible. One way is the speed with which it can warm up and start printing. When you send a print job while the printer is in sleep mode, it can get the first page out in as quickly as 7.5 seconds.

For greater efficiency you can add an additional 550 sheet drawer to the standard 250 sheet one. This will reduce the frequency with which you need to get up from your desk to add paper. You can also choose to increase the processor speed and the RAM which will allow you to print bigger and more complicated jobs faster.

The printer comes with a year long warranty which can be upgraded. Dell supports it with free telephone support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
