The Dell P703w all-in-one printer is average size at approx. 22 lbs. Its dimensions are 20.3″ x 14.5″ x 8.7″ and – despite the paper tray – is fairly compact. The printer is almost entirely black with a silver wrap around the midsection and a silver border around the top.
Unlike the rest of the black on the printer, the top is a glossy black and very reflective. In fact, I had problems taking pictures of the top without getting my reflection in the shot. There is the standard Dell logo in the middle of the scanner lid while the LCD screen and control panel lay to the right of the lid.
It took several tries to get this shot without capturing myself as well
The color 3.0” LCD screen flips up for easy access and there are 10 buttons and a control wheel in the panel including: rotate, zoom in, zoom out, photo, scan, copy, cancel, menu, start and power. The control wheel consists of four arrow keys and a check/ok button in the middle.
The scanner lid lifts up to reveal a scanning area of approx. 12” x 8 ½”. The lid lifts out about two inches for scanning of thicker items such as books.
Below all of this, around the midsection, the printer can be lifted for easy access to the printhead and cartridges.
The paper tray and built-in card reader are located at the bottom of the P703w. The paper tray is divided into two separate trays. On the top of the tray there is smaller tray exclusively for 4 x 6-inch photo paper. The bottom of the tray is where all other print media is inserted. It’s large enough for letter/A4 sized paper as well as 8 x10” photo paper. The tray also can be used for envelopes and smaller paper and there are paper clamps on all sides that are adjustable to the print medium.
The built-in card reader is to the right of the paper tray. It is compatible with xD-Picture Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, SD Card/Multi-media Card and Compact Flash type I and type II. Below the card reader is a PictBridge slot.
The Dell Photo P703w All-In-One Wireless printer is a nice-looking, fairly compact device for $149. It gives the user many options and I’m looking forward to testing it fully. Check out our full review to get the scoop on the P703w.
