Dell V715w All-in-One Wireless Printer

 

The Dell V715w All-in-One Wireless Printer offers the standard array of print, fax, scan, and copy features with a useful 50-sheet autodocument feeder and an Eco Mode button that encourages you to cut down on consumables. Out of the box, the V715w...

The Dell V715w All-in-One Wireless Printer helps you reduce your environmental footprint with an integrated Eco Mode button that dims the 2.4-inch LCD display and enables double-sided printing with the 50-sheet autodocument feeder.

Lackluster image quality and ink-guzzling cartridges hold back a printer already outgunned by its faster, more full-featured competition.

The Dell V715w is the company's flagship printer, but its mechanical missteps and quickly depleting cartridges keep us from recommending this device over more-capable machines like the Lexmark Prevail Pro705.

Review: Dell V715w all-in-one wireless printer

 

The Dell V715w color inkjet multifunction printer aims for the small office, offering good print quality and paper-handling features.

Setting up the V715w via its USB or Wi-Fi connection is pretty easy if you have a PC; Mac users need to download drivers from the Dell website. Dell's on-screen installation process gives you the option of full hand-holding or more-streamlined...

"Worst printer I've ever owned!!"

 

I haven't even had this printer for a year and twice already it has had fatal errors to the point that it had to be completely replaced. Good thing I purchased the warranty or I would have been SOL. You literally spend HOURS on the phone with tech...

Absolutely none.

Erases its own driver so printer doesn't work then you have to spend hours (not joking) with customer service trying to resolve it.

"The Dell V715w printers are Lexmark with Dell badging."

 

While I wouldn't buy either the V715w or its cheaper stablemate, the V515x, I did install them for customers. My view is that they're a lot of money for the printer. With a computer in the same room as the router and the printer with both computer and...

Easy to set up

1) Wireless connectivity is slow.

"Junk, Please don't buy this printer."

 

I will enjoy shooting this printer, one the replacement arrives. It is the worse printer I have ever owned.

It holds down loose papers on your desk quite well, no other useful function.

The darn thing falls asleep, you get a screen that says can't connect to the printer, so before a print job, unplug and replug the printer and wait for the green WIFI light. I can find no way to eliminate the sleep function.

"GIVE ME MORE INK PLEASE"

 

I wanted an all in one printer to do scans, copying and printing but if I had to do it again I wouldnt purchase this printer.

It has worked wirelessly for all my systems.

Print quality is poor. I go through Ink far too fast. I dont print often and when I need too I am out of ink. As another reviewer mentioned I am guessing it is using ink when not printing and I am not sure how.

I am a big fan of dell laptops. I repair pc's. laptops, printers. I have never seen a bigger rip off on the ink in my life. It drinks ink like a 4 barrel carburator. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY, You could buy new printer after 4 refills on ink. Ink cost...

Scans ok, Quality ok

INK INK INK, INK will cost you $35.00 for one black and one color. You might get 10 pages out of one black refill, 15 on color. Wireless setup is joke. Will not hold wireless connection, had to hardwire it got tired of wiresless setup after printer went t
