Ink is too expensive for this "cheaply" priced printer
9 October 2010
Summary: It looks like a good deal, but I can't find any generic ink cartridges that will work with it, which means if you buy it you're left paying full price for "official" ink from Dell--and that means paying $20 a cartridge every. single. time.
Summary: My last Dell printer I would go through one black ink cartridge every 6 months plus. With this one its down to less than two months before I need a new black ink. This makes it a very expensive printer. They practically give away the printer then gouge you when they sell you ink.
Summary: I purchased this after my HP all-in-one printer finally gave out after 2 decades. I am so sorry that I purchased a Dell computer & printer. The printer is constantly giving error messages and when it works, it prints about 1/80 of what my old printer did before it needs a new ink cartridge.
Summary: For the price, this is a great product. Definitely would not use it to print photos or anything you would expect high resolution/quality for, but a worthy printer to have if you just need something that prints, copies, and scans decent color and black/white documents.
This printer goes through ink like a Hummer goes through gas.

Summary: Not only that the ink is far too expensive, but the print quality is horrible. On its normal setting, it streaks every other line. Best quality will give you a product that is acceptable, but the setting will go through your already small supply of ink twice as fast.
Summary: I purchased this directly from Dell in January of 2010. The printer does not come with a cord to connect to your pc, so if this is going to be your first printer purchase in the last 10 years or so like it was for me, you're going to need to buy a printer cable.
Excerpt: I love my Dell All In One! I’ve had it for 5 years or so. It’s never broke down, (knock on wood) and it has always printed very nice documents. The only problem I had once was when I purchased those cheap printer cartridges that get advertised on line. …
Ink runs out quickly and is very expensive to replace.

Summary: This seemed like a good machine when I bought it at a very good price however the ink cartridges ran out very quickly and it cost almost as much as buying a new printer to replace them £19.99 for a black cartridge and £23.99 for colour.
