Dell intros A940, P1500 and S2500 printers

The printers feature the Dell Ink Management System  or Dell Toner Management System , which simplify the purchasing process by displaying ink or toner levels on the status window during every print job and proactively prompting users to order replacement cartridges.

When cartridges begin to get low, the status window will deliver a message alerting users that it is time to order a replacement cartridge from Dell. One click of a mouse leads to Dell’s online imaging supply store (www.dell.com/supplies), which recognizes each user’s printer model and offers the appropriate replacement ink or toner cartridge, greatly reducing the risk of buying the wrong cartridge. New cartridges can be delivered as quickly as the next business day.

Along with the printer launch, Dell has established a program to recycle outdated printers at no additional charge for anyone who purchases a new Dell printer. This is the first offer of its kind among major electronics companies. Customers-without ever having to leave their home or office-can easily ship their older printers, regardless of the manufacturer, to approved recycling centers. Dell provides a pre-paid postage label and simple instructions to arrange for pick-up. More information can be found online at www.dell4me.com/recycling.

“We plan to improve the customer experience of purchasing printers and replacement ink or toner by delivering the same value, attention to service and industry-leading products as Dell has over the past 18 years,” said Tim Peters, vice president and general manager, Dell Imaging and Printing. “These four printers are just the first models in what will be a broad line of products that meet the needs of all customers, from individuals to large corporations.
