Dell's robust 3110cn laser color printer has quite large dimensions (53 pounds of weight, 18.5 inches tall, 16 inches wide and 19.1 inches deep) which makes it even bigger than the rest of the similar performance models. But it is after all a color printer, and four toner cartridges however do take up some space.

Color prints can be delivered in a quantity of 17 pages per minute, which is still middle to high class performance for this category of printers.

This printer is a heavyweight model, and because it is designed mostly for home and small office use, its dimensions could be considered its disadvantage. It is however, inevitable, because of the amount of space that color printers need for the toner cartridge. In addition, the printer should be handled cautiously when opening the front panel, because its light sensitive parts are not protected enough. Some objections have been noticed on the complicated toner replacing procedure.
