Worse printer I have ever owned

carlos torres, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: Horrible, never worked right from the box. It connects when it wants too, if it sits idle it never works when you go to use it. DO NOT SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY!

Worst printer EVER

Heide, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: There are only 2 reasons to own this printer. 1) Someone gave it to you for free. 2) You only want to print out a one-page letter once a year. Otherwise, forget it. The ink cartridges cost an arm and a leg, and for what? The print quality... no, sorry, can't use the word "quality" in reference to this printer. It prints the worst pictures I've ever seen. Stripes throughout every image, the color is dull and lifeless, and there's no definition whatsoever. Scans? UGH!

Waste of Resources

CARLA, Amazon
1 July 2012
  • Summary: If i could give this product ZERO stars i would but thus, i am left with one. First, the printer eats ink like no other. Second, i got error warning on the printer head 14 months after i bought it. So it does not work now. The previous dell printer lasted me almost 8 yrs. Dell wants me to buy replacement for 150 bucks but told me they had a deal on printers. Do not buy especially if you need a printer.

No support for problems, just empty apologies

slats, Amazon
31 May 2012
  • Summary: I had used my p513w printer less than a dozen times when I received an error message telling me that the cartridges needed to be replace but once I had done this the error message changed to printer head problem. The printer head appears to be burned and customer support could only offer "sincere apologies". They don't even have a printer head in stock. Will never purchase Dell products again.

Horrible software, constant connection issues

Roman Richardson "R3ality", Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: I will say that when I can connect to the printer that it works as advertised. Unfortunately when it is running on its wireless it will just stop responding. I can usually get it working again with some combination of power cycling the printer, rebooting my wireless router, rebooting my PC, and sometimes it has taken a complete uninstall and re-install of the printer software on my PC. ...and that's another thing. The software for this printer is truly horrible.

Love this printer!

luvmymarine524, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: This printer is fabulous as long as you set it up correctly. I agree it is a bit of a pain and can be expensive considering you usually have to order the ink from dell directly online. I love the two-sided printing and I have never had trouble with setting up or using the software that came with my printer.

Ink Hog, print head problems

Al Fields, Amazon
2 December 2011
  • Summary: My first comment is that this is not really a Dell printer and you can see this on installation where it is clear that it is a Lexmark printer. We purchased this printer for a small office for our color prints -the other printers in the office are monochrome lasers- to replace an old HP 9760. The setup is easy, even the WiFi. As I installed the ink for the first time I noticed that cartridges are separate from the print head (i.e.

  • Summary: This has been the worse printer I have ever used. It jams every time you use two sided printing has major ink head problems and now after maybe 400 pages the print head has died. I called Dell, but they do NOT sell parts for this item.

Not all it's cracked up to be

~V "vel0811", Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: I've had this printer for nearly a year and a half and have no complaints with the printing itself or the amount of ink it goes through. My problem from day one has been its wireless capabilities. I connected to a brand new Dell Inspiron laptop, brand new Linksys wireless router and have never been able to get it to actually connect--and I'm no dummy when it comes to this sort of thing, I just lack patience and want it to work the way the directions say it will.
