For those who were offered the 3115CN, keep in mind there is no copier/scanner feature. This isn't an apples to apples replacement.

PDF Split and Merge

Quote from LordKronos View Post :
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.

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.

Someone tried that and it didn't work out as we hoped. But could be worth another try.

Quote from Dollar View Post :
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.

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.

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?
