A lemon of a printer with many buggy "features"

Cheruvim, CNET
10 December 2013
  • Summary: Where to begin? The Dell v515w probably should have never come to market. Many of its features are buggy.
  • Pros: good print quality. Good print speed. Compact use of space. Lots of features.
  • Cons: Many of the nice features are buggy., Network interface is buggy., Driver software is buggy., Very unreliable printer!

Horrible printer. Worst printer I've ever used.

tmeeks, CNET
20 April 2012
  • Summary: I've had this printer for 8 months Save your money and buy a better printer. This printer will only bring you frustration.
  • Pros: Nice looking. Not
  • Cons: Printer will not stayed connected wirelessly. might work 2-3 days then will quit working. Only way to fix is uninstall and reinstall printer. Rinse and repeat., Won't allow you to print in even black only if the color print cartridge is empty.

Poor copy quality (when it works); Expensive

LDOGO, CNET
25 March 2012
  • Summary: Don't waste your time or money on this printer. I have had the print head replaced and that did not correct the poor print quality (still "streaked" the print). Dell sent a refurbished printer (although mine was still under warranty) and right out of the box I had the same problem with print quality. The ink cartridges are expensive and this printer is an "ink hog".
  • Pros: It worked well for about the first 20 copies. The remaining 250 plus got chalked up to printer head cleaning and alignments.
  • Cons: Requires constant cleaning of print heads which consumes most of the color ink and even after cleaning, the printer still puts horizontal streaks in the print. Wireless is not reliable, fax function does not confirm receipt of fax.

This printer is an ink guzzler even in draft mode.

RollingAlong, CNET
16 January 2012
  • Summary: I though I was getting a good price when I bought this printer, but I've paid a fortune in ink cartridges, and I don't print a lot. Additionally, the printer will not print jobs in queue until the print cartridge has been changed. A nessage box appears on my computer screen that says: "Recycle those used cartridges." I have been able to copy but not print. The resulting copies look fine. Printing resumes after I change to a NEW cartridge.
  • Pros: Good quality printouts
  • Cons: 1. Runs out of ink quickly, 2. Printer requires frequent resetting (disconnecting and reconnecting power cord) to resume communications with the computer when printing wirelessly via network.

Never purchase this printer!

jmbmh1, Ebay
8 January 2012
  • Summary: This is the worst printer I have ever used. The ink does not print very well, ink jets clog, and the machine is impossible to clean easily. Even with new ink cartridges I had nothing but problems. I threw the thing away!

This low cost do-it-all wireless printer cost me my laptop. Beware.

thegoodstuff904, Ebay
3 December 2011
  • Summary: Second Dell printer that I've owned, I was very pleased with the first one even though their ink is a little pricey. This printer however I was not at all pleased with; in fact it crashed my Dell D820 and forced me to buy a whole new setup-went HP laptop + printer this time and I'm very happy. When I first opened up the printer and ran the install cd, everything went fine, even got a sample page out of it.

What a piece of CRAP - Save your MONEY

akcbulls, Ebay
23 November 2011
  • Summary: I also came across this all in one ink jet printer on ebays daily deal. I thought, great everything I needed at a great price and a great product in Dell. Wow was i terrably mistaken, I love how mostly everyone who bought this crap seems to have written their reviews before they have had a chance to actually use it for a month. I, nor my family hardly use this printer because of the cost of the DELL ink you must buy for it.

Total JUNK, does not work, terrible product, terrible customer service.

baseball_fan_14, Ebay
27 August 2011
  • Summary: Total junk!! Never has worked correctly. Worked with customer service. They are condescending, and the workers have to use a checklisted script. They assume that you are stupid and cannot possibly provide helpful information about the problems. The printer part worked for printing two documents. The head has been replaced, and it worked for printing two more documents. The scanner worked great until today, now it no longer functions. I guess I now have a $70 boat anchor.
