Dell Printer - at your door with ink cartriges for just £9.99!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Saw this offer earlier this morning, seems very good value for money, considering the ink cartriges are worth £25 on their own!

    Wow! Fantastic deal! But can you find any inexpensive compatible ink cartridges for it? I've had a look at a few sites, but haven't found any yet. If I can find them, I'd buy one of those printers!

    Just checked on Dell's site. To get a pair of cartridges delivered to your door would cost almost fifty quid! :eek: Sod that!

    seems fairly cheap, im sure there are cheaper though, just google for

    "Dell 720 / A920"

    and there are various sites that sell the refil ink cartriges for cheaper :-)

    So, it's the same cartridge then?

    ....Just checked, and yes, it's the same cartridge, and you find the A920 listed more often than the 720, so search for A920 cartridges.

    Yeah but who cares, for ten quid you can use it until the supplied cartridges run out then throw it away :p

    As we all use computers, and all have/need a printer, and the offer ends in a few hours, I'd say this was the right forum for it right now! :thumb:

    Yep, agree with DiamondGeezer, thanks for posting it here noog. I decided to order one too as I found I can get a pair of compatible cartridges for £25 to £30. Cheers!

    Oh I'm sorry, I didn't realise the offer was only a few hours, I don't bother with computer stuff, so I didn't click the link.

    ... oh no wait, that wasn't you :p

    My very first inkhet printer was a Canon and costed me £500
    And ink was £10 per cartidge and it needed 4 cartridges.

    But I used to refill and it worked out about £2 to refill all cartidges rather then £40 to buy new ones

    BTW My main colour printer is an Epson 740 and laast time I bought ink it was £20 for 5 black and 5 colour cartidges

    Just seen 6 of each for £19 from choice stationary but only cos it's their 6th birthday

    9.99 here, maybe they ordered it after the deadline or from a different page away from the promotion page.

    Went out and when I came hoem there was a message on the phone from Dell saying printer will be delivered on the 6th August - that's pretty good customer service ... never had a company call to actually give me a date of delivery.

    Mine arrived yesterday!

    It works.

    It comes with some "trial" cartridges. I don't know how these differ from the real cartridges. :o

    Set it up, and gave it a go, and it's a fine little printer. Very fast at printing a letter. Haven't given the colour a go yet, but will have to test out a photo on it.
    It's small, neat, and obviously a lightweight, plasticy, budget printer, but for the money it's fantastic!

    The "trial" ink cartridges probably just don't come with much ink. :( But replacements are cheap enough if you shop around, so no problem there - especially when I got it for a tenner. :)

    I noticed that too. Dunno how they vary from usual cartridges.

    I didnt even get a order number sent and the online tracking didn't work!
