I am probably the most electronics challenged person on the planet! I am a electronics dummie! I am so bad I even  had problems operating a simple electric can opener.  So when my children all chopped in to purchase me a computer I thought they had totally lost their minds. But with patience and alot of mess ups, I conquered the computer. Then on my birthday, they decided to buy me a Dell Personal All-In One Printer A920. Oh boy, I thought, another confusing electronic. I read the owner's manual, which was very easy to understand. To my astonishment the printer was really easy to operate.I just put the paper into the slot, click "print" and I got beautiful printed copies. I was also surprised that it was also really easy to change the ink cartridge's. The fun part of my new printer is the scanner that is built in. That too is so easy to operate. I just put what I want scanned under the lid and I can click preview and see what the final document will look like, and, after approval, click ok and I can save it in my files or print it. So easy, even a dummie like me can do it!

I've had the Dell 942 All-In-One printer for a few years and I used it primarily to print homework and essays when I was a student. I admit, I never really used it to scan or print photos. As I said, I've used this printer for a while but hadn't for a few months. A few weeks ago, I pulled out the printer to print something and even though there was ink and paper, nothing would print. Another annoying thing about this Dell printer is that it prompts you to purchase ink from Dell, which turns out to be extremely expensive. This printer does let you know the ink levels every time you print, which is an advantage. However, that is canceled out if you don't buy ink from Dell because then the printer does not recognize ink levels at all! Many people have told me that Dell is a reliable company with high quality products. After using my Dell printer and a Dell laptop for a few years, I don't think I will purchase Dell products anymore. They are great for the first few years, but then don't work as well later.

Avoid this printer at all costs it is junk!!

By 

from New Albany, IN

Comments about Dell Photo All-In-One Printer:

This printer is absolutly the worst on the market. It broke down on me after about a year and a half. I called tech support and was told that it is repairable but it would cost more than I paid for it.



While it was working it did print good reports and printed good pictures (if you used the right paper for pictures). It did an acceptable job of copying documents. The printing and copy results were clear. This was the only good thing about the printer.



Changing the ink cartridges was easy and not messy.



Aside from that it was cheaply made, was not very durable, and had a very short operating life.

**The Dell 942**

This printer is one of the nicest printers i have seen in a while. It has all  all different types of things that printers can do and can,t do. The most thing that brought me to it,s attention was the price and the all in one thing s that comes with it. The one thing that took me by surprise that i don,t like is it is funny looking and light weight (breakable looking). I most enjoyed what it can do print, fax, scan take colorful pictures, and internet compactable. I always wanted something like that printer as i like to say i,m a go getter and the price was definately one to see 199.99 before the taxes. Like i said it,s really not that bad of a printer, but the likable things about the printer will make you forget about the weight problem and futuristic looking object. Anyway i,m done talking the talk and still thinks that,s the one like i said earlier. signing off your buddy clean cut : )

The best printer is a Dell All-In-One printer.

By 

from Ocilla, GA

Comments about Dell Photo All-In-One Printer:

Since the day DELL sent me this printer, I've loved it. It was easy to assemble a couple of wires and start it up. It prints (with many different settings), scans, faxes and copies the way a printer is supposed to. The price is very competitive and I really love the dependability of my printer, which has outlasted my first computer, and is working like a charm for my second Dell, that's about 6 years of lots of usage everyday. You really can't get a better deal.

only good for the most basic printing

By 

from Vardaman, MS

Comments about Dell Photo All-In-One Printer:

If you are only printing black and white text for basic home needs, then you could probably get by with this printer. More advanced printing jobs need a more advanced printer. I have only had problems with paper jams on a few occasions although it seems to be a big problem for other users. Occasionally when I try to print something, my computer (also a dell) says the printer is not connected or not powered on although it is. As with all dell printers, you can only get ink for it by ordering it through dell. Their ink is very expensive to start with and then I would wind up paying 29.99% interest on it using their dell card. You would be much better of to get a different brand computer so that you could get cheap ink for it and could also run get it from your local store anytime, instead of waiting for dell to ship it to you.

This printer makes everything seem easier-no hassle, no worries.

By 

from Bryan, TX

Comments about Dell Photo All-In-One Printer:

My roommate bought the Dell 942 Photo All-In-One Printer for us to use for college.  It has made things pretty easy to handle.  My roommate and I have no time to go get pictures developed, or papers copied somewhere else with our busy schedules (I sure do have to time writing this review).  It has been reliable and also relevant to my llfe...and also my roommate's.

Excellent for multiple tasks.

By 

from Hudson, WI

Comments about Dell Photo All-In-One Printer:

This printer is alright. It is capable of scanning, copying, etc. When you need these features it is a good printer. It does have some issues. Many of the issues are related to the ink. When you replace your ink (with expensive Dell ink) the printer continuosly gives you a low ink warning. Besides, you have to order the ink from Dell and it's very expensive. Even doing that, the printer still tells you the ink is low. If you want don't mind spending a bundle on ink, and looking at low ink warnings all the time, then this is the printer for you.
