This Dell Printer will help you reduce your environmental footprint, but likewise your image quality and ink hustle in cartridges keep up from full recommendations. I'm Justin Yu, and this is a first look at the Dell V715W all in one wireless printer. This is the company's flagship printer and it offers the standard array of prints, fax, scanning, copy functionality that we've come to expect from a 190 dollar device. But let's start with a couple positive features along with the 2.4-inch color LCD display, the control panel also has a series of short cut buttons that let you quickly access the main features of the printer, and you also get an Eco-Mode button marked with a green leaf over here that triggers dual sided printing, copying, and faxing using the duplex around back. The button also dims the LCD while you're not printing, and the printer helps the environment further with energy starter location and will go into auto power save mode if left idle. Unfortunately, the printer is out shadowed by the Epson Workforce 840. That's the current gold standard office output devices that has doubled the paper capacity and can also print photos wirelessly using Epson's free iPhone app. Another complain we have with the V715W is the amount of ink it expels per cartridge. Despite using 4 individual ink cartridges for black, magenta, cyan, and yellow, the standard cartridge included didn't even last long enough to go through out quality and speed test documents, which is rare for a printer especially at this upper key of price tag. In addition, we ran this to several installation and connection issues with the embedded 802.11bg Wi-Fi card that's supposed to get you connected to a computer without USB cable. Unfortunately, our connection kept putting out and presenting and air message that we couldn't seem to figure out. If you're printing a high volume of documents, photos, and graphics and your business depends on a capable device that won't cut out in the middle of day, we recommended foregoing this printer and checking out that Epson Workforce 840. It may cost a bit more, but your company's workflow is worth it. You can read all the details including performance charts and feature details and the full review on cnet.com, but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu and just took a first look at the Dell V715W all-in-one wireless printer. Thanks for watching.
The Dell P513w all-in-one printer produces adequate prints, but the cheap build, quick-depleting cartridges, and spotty wireless service aren't worth the $150.
The Dell V515w is a capable printer with all-in-one print, fax, scan, and copy functionality, but the cheap build, quick-depleting cartridges and spotty wireless service aren't worth the hassle.
The Lexmark Platinum Pro905 is a fully capable all-in-one business device, but its touch screen might throw a wrench in your workflow. The Smart Solutions widgets add virtual customization to the control panel, but we wish Lexmark had retained a few hard buttons as well. As the top dog in the Lexmark printer family, the Platinum Pro 905 does the job, but the HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless does it cheaper.
Aside from a few design hang-ups and a slower than average output speed, the Lexmark X7675 Professional all-in-one printer is a cut above other multifunctional printers. Its excellent quality prints, easy to setup wireless connectivity, and generous five-year warranty catapult it to the top of our list of favorites.
The Brother MFC-990CW is a speedy, fully capable all-in-one device that earns our recommendation for an individual or a family that will make use of its touch screen and telephone/answering machine. Mechanical issues notwithstanding, this is the highest-scoring Brother printer we've tested to date.
The Lexmark Interpret S405 is a capable multifunction printer with respectable output speed and quality, but it's overshadowed by competing printers that offer more features for less.
The Prevail Pro705 is Lexmark's all-purpose office machine and we recommend it for home offices or small workgroups; just don't expect it to print out high-quality graphics or high-resolution photos.
The Lexmark Impact S305's low price tag, simple setup, and straightforward features are sure to draw in budget customers with intermittent printing needs. With extra features like wireless printing and a media card reader, the Impact earns a solid recommendation.
The Lexmark Interact S605 multifunction device prints, scans, copies, and connects wirelessly with a streamlined user experience facilitated by an easy-to-use touch screen and customizable widgets called "SmartSolutions." Built for small businesses and home usage, the Interact S605 stands out in its price range and is well-deserving of our recommendation.
Lexmark's latest all-purpose office machine introduces a new set of inks with a separate print head that outputs higher-quality photos than the previous model, but competing devices give you convenient features like cloud printing and a larger touch-screen display for the same price.
Dell V715w All-in-One Wireless Printer Review
The good: 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.
The bad: Lackluster image quality and ink-guzzling cartridges hold back a printer already outgunned by its faster, more full-featured competition.
The bottom line: 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.
