The Dell A940 is a cheap Lexmark printer with Dell's name on it.

  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Ease of Use:
  • Paper Handling:

Pros:The only positive I can find for any of the Dell printers is it's cheap.

Cons:Poor paper feed / jams in humid conditions. Ink streaks badly with 1/4 cartridge left.

The Bottom Line: Do not buy the Dell A940. As with most of the Dell products it is all about being cheap. Dell is not selling products with the customer/reliability in mind.


Dell printers in general are either produced by Lexmark in Kentucky or in China / Korea. They are all about being cheap and low cost. I do own the A940 because it was given to me. I would not have bought it knowing its problems. The problems I have had with this printer is poor paper feeding under humid conditions and the ink cartridge craps out before being completely empty. The paper feed problem was a know defect before production of this model. Dell chose to sell "as is" instead of fixing this problem. Passing the bug onto the consumers because it is cheaper not to fix the problem. The ink is where ALL printer manufacturing companies make their money. So they will virtually give you their printer knowing you will spend a bundle to keep it full of ink. So a ink cartridge that craps out with ink($$$) still in it works to the advantage of the company again. The only reason Dell got into the printer market was to take profits away from Hewlett Packard. They did not get into the market for the customer or to sell high quality printers. If you want your monies worth stick with Hewlett Packard for all your printing needs. HP is still the KING of the printing world.
