Guide Review – Dell 968 All-in-One Printer
This All-in-one Dell 968 offers you similar conveniences like most of other multifunctional printers do. It does have a fax, a titable LCD screen and a PictBridge connection up front. It offers you multiple media-card slots. The special is that you can see the amount of ink left in its color cartridge and its black cartridge while you are printing. You may find the ink level may run dry quite soon, but it is good that the printer itself can use the black ink in its color cartridge to finish the job in case the black cartridge runs out of ink.
With only 2 ink cartridges, it is not an expert at photo printing. But you if you need to occasionally print some photos, this Dell 968 won’t let you down. Although it takes up to around one to one and a half minutes to print a 4×6 photo, and about one minute to copy a 8.5×11 color one with high quality, the photos come out dry, clear and nice, with sharp colors. The printer also offers you some basic on-board editing functions such as brightness, crop, red-eye removal, and rotation. If you need more professional functions, the Snapfire software included can help you.
What make this printer outstanding are its built-in wireless card and its Ethernet connection, while its price is still reasonable. Choosing this Dell 968, your home office can run smoothly because you can connect it to any computer you want on your office network. Dell’s drivers as well as utilities CD will help you set up everything easily. All you need to know is your Wifi network’s basics. But still, there are some feedbacks from some users about some difficulties when they try to connect their Dell laptop to this Dell 968 printer. So I recommend you should test carefully before purchasing.
