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: 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: The printer prints just fine but runs out of ink very quickly. The printer also stops functioning when the color cartridge run dry and will not print in black only. Printer cartridges are way over priced.
Summary: I wish I could give it zero stars and still rate it. I got this in October 2010, convinced by a Dell salesman that it was a great deal and added as a last-minute item with the phone order of a wireless laptop. I regretted it by January 2011. The wireless feature stopped working and it wouldn't print. Even with a USB connected, it still doesn't actually print or copy about 80% of the time. I have to physically turn it off, then reboot my laptop to get it to work.
Dell V313w - DO NOT BUY - Don't even take it for free
17 April 2012
Summary: Bought a new Dell Inspiron computer - with it (because i didn't notice a way to stop it from happening) came a new "wireless" printer. I've noticed that other reviews are concerned about how quickly this machine goes through ink - mine doesn't do that - LARGELY BECAUSE IT WON'T PRINT. Have set the thing up using the USB option, as well as the "WiFi" opiton and in either case, it will work for several hours, then it becomes un-locatable.
Worked for 3 weeks. Avoid this piece of trash at all costs. Don't even touch one, you'll get ink on you.

Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!!! After 3 weeks of light printing I went to print some coupons and nothing but blue ink printed. I guess its my mistake for not going through the warranty process or just getting my money back after 3 weeks. I have more pressing things going on than spending all day on the phone with Dell's slow outsourced tech support. Now its too late. I would rate this at zero stars if I could.
Summary: I bought this printer about a year ago and had major inkhead problems right off the bat. After my latest phone call with tech support the guy in his native Indian dialect actually admitted there was nothing he could do and I should just buy a new printer. Done.
Summary: I have owned this printer for the better part of a year, with light use you will run out of ink within a few weeks and that is generous. The black ink especially runs out incredibly fast and costs more than the printer to refill.. There is good reason Dell gives this thing away when you buy a laptop. They make all of their money back the first time you buy ink. Save yourself some money and buy a more expensive longer lasting printer.
Problems with printhead - in a month after purchase

Summary: This is the 2d Dell printer I bought - the first one started to have printhead problems after 3 years of use, so I replaced it with the same thing as I had cartridges for it, but the new one started having printhead problems after a month. I will never buy another dell printer again!
