Dell A940 Reviews

PCmag reviews the Dell A940 and writes;
“Performance was impressive for an ink jet MFP at this price. We clocked the A940 in default mode (600 by 600 dpi) at a quick 5.7 pages per minute (ppm) for a 30-page Microsoft Word document with highly readable (although slightly grayish) text. Photos are produced somewhat slowly but offer nearly true-photo quality. Times for our test suite of 8-by-10 photos in best mode (4,800 by 1,200 dpi) ranged from 4 minutes 11 seconds to 5:09 on plain paper and from 8:11 to 8:58 on glossy photo paper. Note that the A940 is an excellent color copier as well, delivering higher-quality copies than many all-in-one printers.”

CNET reviews the Dell A940 and writes;
“Scan quality, on the other hand, looked quite good–comparable to that of better standalone scanners, such as the older Epson Perfection 2400. On our black-and-white test scan, photos came out clear and bright, with expertly reproduced fine details. On the color scan, photos were nice and sharp, and the scanner reproduced color shading nicely.”

Dell A940 User Reviews

Great Find
“I found this all-in-one in the trash of a college student leaving off-campus housing for summer break. It only scanned, which is great because I only needed a scanner (already had a printer). It was a great scanner – a little loud, though. Finding a driver was a little rough, having found no CD with the machine, and it was a little outdated for my computer, especially with the Windows 7 I now run. Now in the market for a new machine, because it has now failed after TONS of document scanning over the past 6 years.” – by Joyce
