Summary: Literally Garbage. When its "working" it sucks up ink like crazy. It also easily rejects perfectly good ink cartridges for no reason. And you can't buy "Dell" ink cartridges in many shops unlike HP or brother. So you have order them from Dell, which means they are shipped UPS, which means you have to be AT HOME on the day they arrive. It has taken me weeks to get new cartridges because the shipping is such a hassle.
Summary: I bought this printer approximately 2 years ago. I used it only the first year because IT EATS INK. The cartridges only last like a month, and that is under normal use. The ink from Dell is VERY expensive, so it was ALWAYS out of ink. Any time my kids needed something printed for school, we didn't have any ink, so they had to find another way to print their work.
This printer is probably the worst piece of electronics that has ever been made!

Summary: Like the title says "THE WORST PIECE OF JUNK ELECTRONICS EVER MADE"!!!! After about 10 copies I couldn't get it to print. Called Dell to get "print head is clogged". They told me to do a deep cleaning and guess what? It takes about 25% of your ink! It lasted for one week and again clogged print head. Again deep clean just to get it to print. Dell sent me new print heads. They lasted about 2 weeks and guess what? Deep cleaning again.
Summary: If it were within my power to do so, I'd give this zero stars, or even better a negative rating. I'm dismayed to see so many reviews with the same problems. When it's not guzzling overpriced 'Dell Direct' ink (assuming that the cartridges are new and full in the first place - and more than once were not), it has a phantom paper jam. If not a paper jam, then it's a constant and continual need to clean the print head which isn't all that easy to access.
Summary: This printer is constantly screwed up and drinks ink. If we can get 2 pages completed without problems we feel very lucky. Save your money and your temper and buy something else. If possible I would give it no stars.
Summary: The wireless internet connect easily to this printer and that is the only thing that has actually worked with it. I have had two in the last 12-months (warrenty replacement) and both have been junk. Stay away. Printheads have gone out and the document feeders have broken.
Summary: This is the most frustrating printer I have ever owned. At least 100 gremlins lurk inside it's evil body. Once you get the wireless to work, don't ever shut it down or attempt to change any settings. I have spent hours trying to get it to communicate with the computer only to have it start working as mysteriously as it quit. All paper-feed function will jam for no apparent reason at a rate of one jam per ten feeds.
Summary: I have owned this printer for over a year. We very seldom use it and still cant afford to keep putting ink cartridges in it. Will print a dozen pages max on a single ink cartridges. Even in black and white. Complete waste of money!
Summary: I bought two of these turkeys. In both cases, I kept getting printhead errors and the printheads failing. My previous printer was a Dell A940 printer that served me beautifully for years, but it was not compatible with Windows 7, so I needed a new one. I figured I was in good hands getting another Dell, seeing as the A940 served me so well and was so economical with ink. What a mistake. I wouldn't wish them on anyone, so I dropped them both off at a recycle center.
