Summary: I would not buy this printer. I have had several problems with this Printer. I purchased it about 1 1/2 years ago. Twice the printer says it cannot communicate with The computer. Would not recommend purchasing it.
Summary: This is the worst piece of junk that I have bought.Thought I got a great deal when I bought it on sale for $49.00.I had to print a 45 page doc, and ran out of ink 2/3 of the way through.Bought more ink then pages printed with squares all over page.Scanning software sucks,still won't print clean pages.I'll give this to ex wife.
Summary: Product hasn't worked properly since i got it. I thought i just needed more ink because it wouldnt print but its the printer. it won't commnicate with my computer and I did everything possible that the guide told me to do.I really wish i could send this back .I spent $100 on ink i didn't need.
Summary: I've had this printer about fifteen months and it NEVER worked from DAY ONE. First I thought it was cheap ink I was using, which seemed to run through it like a sieve, but alas no, good ink had the same effect. I kept thinking it was probably user error since I'd only just gotten it, but it now appears I've been duped by this stupid thing. In the entire time I've owned it, it has literally printed nothing but test pages, and not very well those, I might add.
Summary: What a complete piece of junk! The reviews say it all. This has to hurt Dell's reputation. The scanner never worked right. It ran out of ink after less than 100 pages on several occasions. Finally the USB port went dead. I tried configuring it as a wireless, but it never could recognize my router. (Our other printer didn't have any problem using the same USB port or wireless). What a waste of money.
Summary: I have had my printer for about a year. I began having printhead problems from the beginning. After following the cleaning instructions, the error persists. I called Dell...in India...little to no effort was made to fix the problem. The support service reps, all three, kept pushing the purchase of a new printer. Dell----"The replacement of the part will be more costly than a new printer.
Dell needs to trash every last one of these printers

Summary: Wow, Dell really cares about customer satisfaction...they are still selling this darn printer in their packages. After all of the reviews, you'd think that Dell would get their #@$% together and retire this model, but of course that's not the case. I recently built my package with Dell in Jan, 2012 and choose this model because it had more features than the 'cheap' one and the other options were double the price.
Summary: Don't waste your money on this junk. I originally bought this printer (and new laptop) for my college-bound daughter. But when it arrived, it was so big and bulky, we decided to get her a nice little HP printer instead, and I opted to keep the Dell. I don't print that much, but it seemed like I went through the startup cartridges really fast. I attributed that to 'they were startup cartridges and probably didn't have normal capacity'.
Summary: I have owned the Dell V313w for around a year now, and got it as a bundle package from the Dell website while ordering a new laptop. I figured that with the laptop, the ability to print from anywhere in the house would be a nice perk, so I figured why not try it? Installation was fairly simple. Following the step-by-step provided made it very easy and pretty quick to setup. The first day was probably the best time to use it, since it was the only time it worked.
Summary: I've had several Dell printers and was generally satisfied with them (except for the cartridge price) but the V313w has been nothing but a headache since I got it 6 months ago. I like to print on the "quick print" setting to try to conserve ink, and frequently, merely clicking on that option completely locks up the printer. To be able to print, I have to not only turn off the printer, but reboot the computer!
