Dell introduced the B1160 printer in June 2012, with an OEM-rated print speed of 21 pages per minute (ppm) and a duty cycle rating of 10,000 pages per month. The B1165 MFP followed in May 2013 and the B1163 MFP in November 2013 in the USA. Print speeds for the MFPs were rated the same as for the B1160 printer, but duty cycles doubled to 20,000 pages per month for the MFP versions. The MFPs were nearly identical, but with only the B1165 having fax functionality as standard.
The B1160 printer models ship with a 1,000 page yield "ship-with" (starter) cartridge. Replacement all-in-one cartridges are available in 1,500 page yield versions. The B1163/1165 MFPs ship with 700 page yield starter cartirdges, with replacements available in 1,500 page yield versions. All cartridges require chips for the printer to function correctly.
