by Reads (6,601)

Last week, Dell announced the first additions to its inkjet lineup in over two years, the Dell V725w and V525w, as the perfect solutions for both the home and the office.

Dell sent us the V725w, a 4-in-1 device with ISO print speeds up to 10 ppm, a print resolution up to 4800 x1200 dpi, 50-page ADF, 2.4-inch color LCD, wireless connectivity and more.

Interested in seeing if the V725w is the crossover inkjet that Dell claims it to be? Read our hands-on first look with an overview of build, design, specs, pricing and plenty of photos and make sure to check back soon for our full review where we’ll put the Dell V725w through the paces.

Build & Design
I assume that the V725w is a refresh of the V715w in the inkjet lineup because the dimensions are nearly identical at 18 x 15 x 10-inches with the same highlighted features in a 50-sheet ADF, a 2.4-inch color LCD, the centered 150-sheet pull out paper tray and a front side USB port.

The CIS flatbed scanner has a maximum scan size of 8.5 x 11.7-inches and is located beneath the 50-sheet ADF. The V725w offers an optical scan resolution up to 1200 x 1200 dpi and users can also create one-touch shortcuts through the control panel for scan features such as scan-to email or scan-to network.

Lift up under the flatbed scanner to access the four cartridge ink system (CYMK). The Dell V725w comes with a set of cartridges, and they offer high capacity and extra high capacity replacements.

The control panel runs along the front of the V725w with a 2.4-inch color LCD, four directional navigation, alphanumerical keypad and 11 quick keys for easy access to the programmable address book, eco-mode and more. The V725w also features a front side USB port for printing on the fly or scanning documents.

Beneath the control panel, you’ll find the 150-sheet adjustable paper tray for printing on a variety of media types and sizes including envelopes, photo paper, index cards, iron-on transfers, transparencies and more.

All the connections are found on the back of the V725w and it supports USB, Ethernet or wireless connectivity.
