I've been looking for a color laser AIO for a while now, and was almost ready to jump on this. It's really HUGE and heavy for a home machine however. I really wish it had auto-duplexing too, but it seems almost impossible to find both auto-duplex and an automatic sheet feeder on a color laser AIO at a price anywhere near what this is. I think this is a good buy if it meets your needs.

Hah, I'm in the same boat. I want a color laser AIO with an ADF and auto duplex for $200. Honestly I don't care if it's the size of my full-size filing cabinet though. One day... one day!

redeyedog 04-11-2013 02:57 PM

There should be a law preventing manufacturers from publishing anything but automatic duplexing. There is no such thing as manual duplex. Anybody can turn the page over on any printer!!

Would have been nice if this was the cdn model..

z9z91 04-11-2013 03:18 PM

By the way, my order of the Xerox from O. Max got cancelled. :eek:

skarydrunkguy 04-11-2013 07:00 PM

generic toners are cheap for this one too... something like ~12 per. We had one of these for years at my old business and didn't have any issues other than the standard maint and toner refills. If I needed one, I'd buy one again.

boobernackle 04-11-2013 07:15 PM

Um, HELLO?!?!?!?!?! Do you people not know you can use the double rewards gimmick everyone used on the U2713HM Display deal from a few days ago to get an even lower price?

I ordered this same thing earlier today and got the extra deduction...

Yes, that's correct. Still saves a little bit than what the OP had in title. Not bad for an AIO color laser printer. The same discount can be applied for the duplex capable version, but I couldn't justify the price jump for my needs.

squaredrooted 04-11-2013 10:25 PM

Trying to decide if I should get this. Was looking for something closer to the $100 price point (was originally looking for a bw laser multifunction), but this is color + AIO + network capable.

Decisions...

To those more educated in laser laser multifunctions, is this a good price for something like this? It seems so to me at least...

aes06 04-11-2013 10:27 PM

I would be all over this, but this unit lacks a multipurpose paper tray to accept something like envelopes for printing. Seems like a great deal otherwise, but it's missing a key feature for me.

gluck 04-11-2013 10:39 PM

Does it do Wifi?

Yes, it is WiFi capable to hook up to your wireless network to share a printer. This was one of the deciding factors for my purchase.

Edit: toy need a dongle under tech specs.

There is no built in wifi on this unit. You can buy an adapter for $100 that adds wireless, though.

Keep in mind those $100 AIO will come with starter toners that won't even last you 2 weeks. Even though this Dell won't come with a full toner, rest assured it will last you a heck of a lot longer. Just a thought on top of the features you already mentioned.

gluck 04-11-2013 10:54 PM

ok so I can hook it to a router and print wireless? I wanted something that prints wifi and I could use iphone and android to print. You just can't everything .. can you .. :)

Or just get a refurb Linksys WET610n for $35.

eViLNeWBiE06 04-11-2013 10:58 PM

Can someone explain to me why this is such a good deal compared to the other Color Laser printer deals lately? Does it have cheaper ink? Or is it because it's a multi-function?

I see people posting things like it doesn't have duplex or wifi, yet it has so many thumbs up.

gluck 04-11-2013 11:09 PM

I can't get the 10% discount. Is it working for all of you?

Are you sure??
I have the 2130 CN purchased about 4 or 5 years ago at a steal of a price then too. There was no mention of multipurpose tray on that either but it definitely does have one. It is a pin though as it is not an auto sense style like my Zerox Phazors. You have to go into the menu and tell it that that it has no 10 envelope etc. Of course this was 4 years ago and maybe they have improved on it.

If money wasn't so damn tight right now I would jump on this for the multi sheet feeder alone!

The 2130cn has been great. It does not see the duty that the Phazor gets but easily spits out 1000 copies a month for the last 4 plus years with out a single problem. It paper jambed once in all that time and I think it was due to something I did.

You have to add it to your cart after going to the member page (and searching for it) (your cart must be empty prior to going to the member page). You can't add it to your cart and then go to the member page and then go to your cart.

Vh2101 04-12-2013 12:12 AM

does anyone know if the print outs are glossy looking like that of HP? i mean not using glossy paper, i am not sure how to explain this, not matte looking i supposed?

gluck 04-12-2013 12:28 AM

Thanks, was finely able to get one.

NevesNET 04-12-2013 01:14 AM

Have the 5210n and would NEVER buy another Dell printer. The plastic is so flimsy and cheap, it's always and I mean always getting jammed on duplex, constant power cycling, etc... the only good thing is it doesn't go through many toners as we hardly use it because it's junk.

atrix415 04-12-2013 01:17 AM

Very good price. But my old laser print is still working fine.

SDaddict0602 04-12-2013 02:08 AM

i also got the 2130cn few years back that came with duplexer. Toner is cheap and last forever. Duplexer prints fast, does have a slot for special printing such as labels and envelopes via the SSF feed. I design these small forms I carry around for orders/appt and print the form on a 3 x 5 index card. I manually feed them, doesn't work in the tray, takes me about 15 min to make 100 prints on index. You can be rather creative on this printer, laser toner makes it nice especially when you accidentally get the paper wet.

vapochill 04-12-2013 05:20 AM

thanks and repped. i was looking for a multi-function printer for 2 weeks and this fits the bill.

Product Subtotal: $233.99
Shipping and Handling: $0.00
Tax: $16.38
Product Total: $250.37

Nanocat86 04-12-2013 05:46 AM

I've been on the lookout for a color laser multifunction for months and this is the best deal by far but the wireless piece makes it pretty pricey...

I'm still in...if my folks don't want it without the wireless, I'll take it!

LordKronos 04-12-2013 05:54 AM

Anyone have any idea about replacement toner for this? Official ones range from $60-$150 depending on page count. What about 3rd party? I found some cheap ones on amazon, but only 2 reviews, one of which was very bad.

dmbao 04-12-2013 06:01 AM

Grabbed one thanks!

taterbug23 04-12-2013 06:33 AM

I always thought laser jet was more efficient than ink jet. Speaking oem only cartridges Currently my hp 950xl inkjet jet runs around $110.00 for 1500 pages...These dell oem are $400 for the set for 2500 pages....thats .07 < .16 a sheet....Is the argument ti use compatible cartridges?

"Doitwiser" people make the best stuff. My 2130cn has run on this for years ($17 a pop?) and, btw, it's the best printer I've ever had. Very tempted by the multifunction but how many printers can one person have?

That's what happens when you buy cheap Lexmark-made pieces of junk...

Dell has good build quality on their desktops and monitors, but since Lexmark makes their printers, I stay 10 miles away from them.

Thanks for the info. Found an amazon page for them, and says it's for the 2155, but when you go to select the printer, I don't see 2155 anywhere in the list

Edit: ok, I think I found doitwiser's US website and the toner is here:

I saw that too - it's in the title but not in the dropdown - I'd say it'd work but you probably have to follow up.

turls 04-12-2013 06:52 AM

Bought 2 of the 3000cn when they were being sold for $75/piece free ship at that price worth it for parts. Its been a workhorse. I know I bought spare toner from Monoprice but I don't go through toners very often and I don't know if Monoprice still sells toner or not.

BubBowen 04-12-2013 06:52 AM

Just an FYI, I've had a 3100CN(actually a Slick Deal as well!) for nearly 7 years and it has yet to even give me a problem. Lucked out and got a free set of extra toner when I bought it and haven't even replaced all of them yet.

It's wasn't MFC but a great medium level color laser printer. If they built these off the same design they should last forever.

Later,

Bub

zlh_bz 04-12-2013 07:08 AM

I have one. That is so heavy for a printer. Needs two people to move it. Toner is more expensive than other brands. No wonder they are clearing out.

Website says 66 lbs with duplexer (so probably a few lbs less). That's heavy, but not really a 2 person job IMHO

Tritonsmoon 04-12-2013 07:20 AM

I have this printer, I think it's great! Yes, the toner is a little more expensive, but one of the things that has been worth the money for me is the fact that I can scan directly to my NAS device. Just set it up as an address in the address book. This has been very helpful transferring all my paper documents to digital. Scan directly to PDF and set the resolutions as well as color and BW. The automatic document feeder has been helpful in that regard as well. This thing is heavy, however, I pulled it out of the box and put it on our desk by myself. Probably would have been easier with two people, but I managed.

rbf351 04-12-2013 07:25 AM

my mx860 inkjet died the other day, and am in need of an all-in-one, and want a color laser printer. for the price it seems like it is worth it, but there are lots of mixed reviews of this printer. so trying to decide if i should pull the trigger or not. at least dell is letting you return this with no restocking fee, and paying for the return shipping

MecroU 04-12-2013 07:45 AM

Decent, but I'll wait for a Brothers laser to go on sale.

gtmaster303 04-12-2013 07:46 AM

this is a lot of printer. 60lbs for 250 dollars! great deal. Lol I'm thinking about buying a fleet to resell to my college. this would cover tuition quite nicely

Jassack04 04-12-2013 07:47 AM

I bought one this morning.. still trying to decide if I actually want it or will cancel.

Non-OEM toner for these seems plenty cheap enough (<$20/color), and I have been looking at color, networked, laser printers with scan functionality. The made by Lexmark fact has me a little concerned though.

Anyone have any other suggestions as far as quality/price are concerned in similar range?

Ostryker 04-12-2013 08:05 AM

I bought a 2130cn a few years back and it came with a duplexer that had to installed separately. Does anyone know if it would be possible to take the duplexer out and install it in 2155cn? I did a cursory search but didn't get any hits.

netnerd 04-12-2013 08:14 AM

Aside from the multifunction piece, as a printer how would this compare to Brother HL-3170cdw (for ~160 + tax)?

Incorrect. I'm reading through the manual right now, and it supports envelopes, both from the tray and from the single sheet feeder

Just an FYI, the word "Malfunction" is redundant in the above statement... you already said it was a "Dell".

Seriously though, you are right....Dell's quality is awful, unlike 5 or 10 years ago.

If you don't need the scanner, go with the Brother. I bought the Dell to replace my old Brother monochrome MFC and color Epson inkjet.

Still having 1600n that bought in 2004 :)for ~$200; top-tray feeder is not working anymore, and make "squeak" noise during printing. the cartridge already replace with non-original one which still have 40% usage.

and finally bite this deal for the replacement.

time to sell 1600n, I guess

Just checked on the 2155cdn, the model with built-in auto-duplex. $200 more! Wonder if this model will be available for a 50% discount anytime down the road? That would make it $285 (before the discount coupon trick).

Yeggles 04-12-2013 08:51 AM

You could also do the 2150cdn for $269.99 and get the duplexer with it. Use the same promo code as above, and they are giving $100 off for members. Here is the link:

http://accessories.us.dell.com/sn...u=225-0036

digital2d 04-12-2013 08:59 AM

Simplex - up to 24 ppm letter and up to 23 ppm A4
Duplex - up to 16.8ppm letter and up to16.1ppm A4

and

Duplex (Two-sided printing)
Standard – Print and Copy

wouldn't this mean it has duplex?

Yeggles 04-12-2013 09:04 AM

I asked the customer service guy and he said that the duplexer was additional. I believe normally if it comes with a duplexer, it would have a "d" in the product name. New note, is that I found the 2150cdn for even cheaper ($222.09 + fs) at Rakuten.com (Buy.com's outlet). It has the same warranty and everything. Here is the link:

http://buycom-outlet.store.rakute...50#cRevSec

I've never bought anything from Rakuten, but I have from Buy.

Yeah, it is reconditioned, but to be honest, I feel more comfortable buying reconditioned sometimes because that just means that there was once something wrong or it was returned and it has been tested more robustly. Also, recondition really only matters if it changes the warranty, which for this one, it appears to be the same.

nmope 04-12-2013 09:24 AM

I have the 3100cn from a few years ago and it is still working like a champ. How does this compare?

digitoast 04-12-2013 09:50 AM

In for a 2155cn, as one of my two 3100cn is essentially dead and we are in need of multifunction capability. Here's hoping that this 2155cn comes close to the 8 years of service the 3100cn has been able to provide.

I purchased two 3100cn back in 2005. Both developed streak issues 3-4 years in (resolved by new imaging drums), but one recently had a sensor fail on it. The printer complains the upper cover is open and a lot of jerry-rigging is now required to make it work (that is, if it works at all).

PharAway 04-12-2013 10:24 AM

Bought one. Seemingly worked with FW too @ 4%.

rsfw 04-12-2013 11:11 AM

Can this one scan duplex. Trying to see if I can replace my hp 8500 wireless with this one.

Chmarr 04-12-2013 11:24 AM

Note.. while the "tech specs" page says that this can do duplexing, if you use the "compare this" with the 2155cdn model, the "cn" model does NOT do automatic duplexing.

Also, none of the 2155 models have Postscript, and I wont touch a printer that doesn't do Postscript :) YMMV.

I've got a 3100cn, and I've never really been happy with the colour output from it, and various things are wearing out. I'm going to replace the printer soon. Do you want my duplexer unit?

The PC Mag article I posted said this about the print quality:

"The 2155cn's output quality is in the top tier for color laser MFPs for both text and photos and just below the top tier for graphics. For the moment, at least, it's simply the best-looking output overall for any color MFP in its price class.

Text quality is good enough for anything but the most demanding desktop publishing applications. Graphics are easily good enough for any business need up to and including handouts for important clients when you want the subtext to convey a sense of professionalism. Depending on how demanding you are, you may consider them good enough for marketing materials like trifold brochures and one-page mailers as well. Photos approach true photo quality, making them easily good enough for things like marketing materials or for client or company newsletters."

bommai 04-12-2013 11:47 AM

How does this compare in quality to the HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color 251nw. I just bought that from best buy for $164 + tax. Works great. I wish it had multi function though.

FWIW, we got the 2130CN (going on 4 years now!), and this fridge has been a beast. We easily bust out 1K pages a month here and toner has been CHEAP!

We get ours from: 4 ink jets dot com
Something stupid like $14 each color, and they work FINE!

Thinking of getting this one, and having it sit in as back up.

$233 is a STEAL!

Just enter whatever local university is near you and enter a few numbers as an ID number. I am not sure if it gets validated or not, but mine was accepted without any sort of validation.

I just put the university I am currently attending, my actual student ID number, and it was accepted. Doesn't look like it checks, to be honest.

bfk777 04-12-2013 01:20 PM

there is a wireless port you can make it wireless, which is less than ideal, but the specs itself says duplex.

I searched all over and couldn't find any information on the auto duplexer. Dell doesn't offer it as an option. You have to get the cdn model so if yours fits, you would be sittin pretty..

Just got done doing the same, the 2130cn duplexer is a separate part ($150), there is no part for the 2155cn, nor is it optional.

It must be different set up inside, with the Multi-functions, I say 99% No.....however, there is a very slight chance, I'll open it & look when I receive it & see if my 2130cn duplexer will fit & work. ;)

I think this is a good buy if it meets your needs.

I was going to ask what people thought of that one. It seems like the cheapest you can find something with auto duplex scanning. The only thing it's missing is the wireless.

My main concern which I haven't looked into, is the replacement cost for toner, any ideas?

I haven't looked into that nearly as well as I should have but here's some prices:
OEM (direct): $98 / 3.5 black, $146 / 3k color
OEM (at Staples): $86 per 2.5k black, $116 per 2.5k color
Meritline re-manufactured: $36 per 2.5k
Refill kit: $45 for 4 x 2.5k.

I guess it's on the high side but probably not that bad. Let me know if you find out anything interesting.

Blackhole4Ever 04-12-2013 08:35 PM

I think this is a good deal. Here's what I did:

1) Went to Dell Home thru my favorite cashback site.
2) Clicked on "Double Your Discount" under the "Student & Member Purchase" header menu.
3) Clicked on "Shop Dell Electronics"
4) Clicked on a printer (any printer)
5) On the resultant page, changed the SKU in the URL to 225-0034 and hit <ENTER>
6) Added the 2155cn to my cart
7) Punched in the J7LDVZT3RLS89R code for an additional $26.00 discount
8) Applied my Dell Advantage Key
9) Selected free 2-day shipping
10) Paid $233.99 + tax

Will receive:
1) Dell 2155cn printer
2) cashback from cashback site (didn't use Discover, went with 3.5%+10% at SAH)
3) 5% Dell Advantage cashback via a promo gift card
4) Overall, a good deal

Cool?

p.s. - The 10% EPP/SPP code wouldn't knock $52.00 off two printers (needed two), so I made two orders.

I have 3100cn that needs a new drum. I am thinking about that rather than getting this 2155cn. Still have that duplexer to get rid of?

As a former owner of one of these... This printer is awful. Eats toner, slow, poor print quality. If I remember right, this Dell model is made by Lexmark.

Multifunction anything on it is a PITA. I replaced mine with a Xerox Phaser.

Might be fine for home use, but anything more than that will leave you wanting for more.

Might be your locations because my experience has always been the complete opposite. Even when I worked at a manufacturer that changed shipping from UPS to FedEx we had nothing but problems. One time that sticks out is we had a shrink wrapped pallet going to London, ON Canada and all but two made it there...the other two ended up in Miami!

Personal deliveries I have had far fewer damaged packages with UPS. Also, I have noticed Fedex will almost never deliver a package earlier than estimated even if it is at the local sorting facility since the day before whereas it very common to get UPS quicker.

It is also my understanding that UPS delivery people work for UPS whereas most people that transport Fedex packages are independent contractors. UPS always leaves packages on my covered porch but is hit or miss with Fedex. Fedex has left packages in front of my garage door rather than walking it the extra 15 feet.

The only thing Fedex has going for it is they are little bit cheaper but if I want to save money, I will just ship USPS.

That's one isolated incident but I understand that FedEx must not be good in your area.

I receive a lot of packages with both UPS and FedEx, and I always had far better experience with FedEx in the multiple states that I lived in. I also ship with FedEx Ground in an ongoing basis and they haven't once disappointed me in any way.

Not trying to turn this into a UPS Fedex argument, I just really receive damaged and very dirty packages from UPS all the time, and they never deliver it early even if it arrives early either in my experience. I agree that UPS has more professional employees and do not have contractors like FedEx but they have far too many packages to handle which causes the issues.

I ship small packages with USPS all the time and love USPS but it's not the way to go if you have a large package because you will end up paying more unless you are shipping to AK/HI/PR or other US/non-US overseas destinations.

Glad they worked for you because I really wanted Fedex to work for me as they would save me money. But the last straw was when I shipped a radio, paid for insurance and then when it arrived broken they said they would not honor the insurance because they did not pack it. Then why did they even offer the insurance? Anyway...end of thread jack and I cannot wait to get my new printer. Going to put my old stuff on craigslist...

That sucks but you might get it earlier than that as mine beat the delivery estimate by two days. I have only had it set up for about an hour but I can already tell that it is worth the wait. Especially nice when you check out Dell's website and it shows that price as $519.99 now :)

Non-OEM toner for these seems plenty cheap enough (<$20/color), and I have been looking at color, networked, laser printers with scan functionality. The made by Lexmark fact has me a little concerned though.

Anyone have any other suggestions as far as quality/price are concerned in similar range?

At first I thought UPS was just being slow, but after three days, I think the item may have just not shipped. Sigh.

I'm seeing the same thing. But what you are looking it is merely which manufacturer the MAC address assigned to the printers network adapter belongs to. It's very common to see this be different than the item's manufacturer. This could mean the entire printer was made by xerox, or merely that the network adapter was made by xerox

Wow, glad I got in early. Got mine today. The thing is a beast. First thing I did was plug it into the my UPS on the battery backup side. Bad move...tripped the UPS's protection circuit (cutting power to everything on my UPS) as soon as I powered it on. Switched it over to the other side (surge protection only...no battery backup) and it worked great. So just a tip for any of you that might be tempted to plug it into a UPS. Wouldn't want anyone losing unsaved work or corrupting a hard drive.

Print quality seems to be pretty good. Photos looks really good, pretty sharp and fairly accurate color, even just on cheap paper. The scanner is good enough for basic document scanning but not ideal for super high quality. With the feed scanner, I've seen some prismatic glitches where black text gets a rainbow glow at the edge. It's usually a few inches down on the page but some pages come out perfect, so not sure if it's caused by the page being improperly fed straight and then the page twisting as it strightens out. With the flatbed scanner it's pretty decent at high res, but then it gets these repeating seams that are visible when viewing the image at 100% magnification.

I was excited about using the feed scanner to convert a lot of documents to PDF, but the problem is that it's not capable of duplex scanning (at least not when initiated from the printer itself). So the choices are to either first photocopy the back sides and mix them in and rescan the whole batch to PDF, or to scan the front and back as 2 separate PDFs and then merge them, interleaving the pages. Also, if you did that, the back sides would be in reverse order, so you'd either need to manually reverse the page order before scanning the back side, or you'd need to reverse the order of the back side PDF when interleaving them. I can manage, but it's more work than I'd like, and probably more than most people could manage (but at least the included Paperport 12 makes it possible for most people).

Not perfect, but I'm fairly happy overall. Now just to find a permanent stand to put this beast on.

GottWhat 04-18-2013 08:40 AM

It is a beast and it is not fun lifting by yourself! No doubt it would trip the UPS as I read that continuous printing draws over 500w. Good luck finding a sturdy stand ;)

I would see if you can work out a deal on a 2155cdn. I know they won't give it to you for the 2155cn price but see if you can split the difference...

Talking to these people from Dell is liking getting teeth pulled. After giving me the run around I finally spoke to someone who stated that my only options are to pay the full $570 price difference of the 2155cdn, accept the offer for the 3115cn, or have the order canceled.

I'm going to try to repair my current printer and if I'm unsuccessful I'll accept the 3115cn. I just don't agree with Dell offering a 7 year old model, with lower specs as a replacement (17ppm vs 24ppm color and 600x600 vs 1200x1200 scanner). At least the 3115cn has a parallel port if anyone is interested.

That it is a bummer. And :lol: at the parallel port comment!

sqoou 04-18-2013 01:33 PM

For the people offered the 3115cn as replacement, I did some light research and came up with:

If any one toner is detected as "low" the entire printer will cease to function until you replace it.

As is probably the case with many laser printers, toner volume is determined by page count which is either stored on the printer's eeprom and in the 3115cn's case also on a chip at the end of the toner cartridge itself

There is an undocumented setting in the printer's configuration to treat the toner as non-Dell which I have read ceases the page counter from incrementing allowing you to actually use a toner to depletion but at the cost of not having an estimate of toner levels.
-> http://www.inktelligent.com/topic...110cn.html
-> http://en.community.dell.com/supp...x#19060142
Basically go to Setup -> Admin -> Maintenance -> Toggle Non-Dell Toner option, confirm, then reboot printer.

I have not yet decided if I will go with the replacement option so none of this is confirmed on my part, just passing it along.

To take the Dell 3115cn or not that is the question. I wonder what if the warranty will be the same as the Dell 2155cn.

Looks good on paper, but I think I'll pass based on age and these articles:

http://shop.retrevo.com/m/s/Dell-...618/t/1-2/

http://www.pcworld.com/article/14...ticle.html

Why buy a color printer if it doesn't print pictures any good.

Just a thought, but has anyone considered calling in to customer support regarding the 3115cn substitution? What do you guys think of asking for a different substitution...perhaps paying a difference to upgrade to a 2155cdn? I doubt it will fly, but the 3115 does not look that appealing at all...at least for now.

I was also told "my only options are to pay the full $570 price difference of the 2155cdn, accept the offer for the 3115cn, or have the order canceled."

FYI, I placed my order Fri 4/12/13 at 5PM and I am not getting a printer.

Interesting. I'm sure you've talked to them more, but they wouldn't let you just wait until the prelim. ship date of 5/31?

I'm in an interesting situation. I placed my order 4/12/13 at 3AM and my order processed quickly and "shipped" later that day. The thing is, my tracking number was never valid (always said "ready for UPS") and I called Dell...they said that the number was created but item never shipped. The item was supposed to arrive tomorrow, since I selected the 7 day shipping.

I've remained in contact with the person assisting me with my order. Earlier my guy told me that he redid my order and that my item will arrive on or before 4/24...shipping method on Dell's order status page says "next business day", but it is still "In production"

I am really hoping that I don't get offered with the substitute 3115, since that seems sub par compared to the 2155...here's hoping...

PDF Split and Merge

Doesn't seem to support any sort of reordering when merging. Like I said, the tricky part is that the scans of the back side will be in the reverse order, so you need to reverse the back document, then interleave the pages.

Easiest way I found is in the included PaperPort software. It allows you to split and join pdf documents, so here is what I do.

1) rename the pdf's do "front" and "back" in PaperPort
2) split both documents using the "Unstack" option. You then end up with "front" "front (2)"..."front (5)" as well as "back".....back (5)"
3) Unselect all documents
4) Ctrl-click on the documents in the order you wish to join them: "front", "back (5)", "front 2)", "back (4)"...."front (5)", and finally "back".
5) Right click and choose "stack" to join them in the correct order

Step 4 is the only part that is tedious and error prone. I actually improved that step by setting up a folder on my linux server where I can copy the files to, a script will automatically run renumbering them as "page_001", "page_002" in the correct order. Then I just have PaperPort sort them alphabetically, do a select all, right click and choose Stack. This way that step only takes about 10 seconds (and is error proof) no matter how many pages the document has.

Mine did the same thing and did not properly show until the day it was being delivered.

PDF Split and Merge

I've used it to reverse order the even pages. I'm using version 2.2.2. on a PC.

Try the following:
Under Plugins, select Alternate Mix.
Add your odd pages.
Add your even pages.

Under Mix option (below) check the box for "Reverse second document".

Select where you want to output file. Run and it does everything for you.

Hope this helps.

Oh interesting. Well, mine is supposed to be delivered today (original order) and the tracking number still says "ready for UPS", with no estimated delivery date or anything - just the destination.

Here's hoping...
Did you have 7 day delivery?

Interesting. I'll check my tracking throughout the day and update. Thanks for your response!

Sounds cool and probably helpful for others. I've already figured out my way and it works great for me, and I can do it without even leaving PaperPort. It's probably as quick as switching to another program and selecting the files, so I'll stick with what I've already got. Thanks anyway. I may check it out sometime to see what other cool features it has

Nope.

But interestingly enough, the tracking page updated. Before it said "Ready for UPS", but now it has updated to "In Transit", saying "1 business day(s) left".

However, under shipment progress, it only shows "order processed: ready for UPS"

I attached a screenshot of the tracking page. Very odd...well, we'll see Monday I guess!

Edit: Interesting. Looks like you were right! The page updated saying that the scheduled delivery has been updated to Monday, 4/22 by the end of the day. And it just departed Vernon, CA. Thanks for your original post! :D
