DELL IS SAYING 'BYE BYE' TO THE PRINTER MARKET
DELL D5765 Printer & Cartridges
Probably as a result of Dell's merger with EMC, the largest Data Storage supplier in the world, the OEM has stopped producing printers, with warranties on them ceasing in 2021.
Apparently, existing printers will be repaired and otherwise supported via supply of consumables including printer cartridges through to 2021.
Stuart Gilbertson, of 'Consider IT's', in his analysis, suggests that the Dell printers seem to be re-branded Xerox or Samsung printers.
Although genuine printer Cartridges will be gradually withdrawn from the market, the compatible cartridges will keep on being available, partially as a result of the withdrawal of the genuine cartridges creating extra demand from users who are not ready to throw away their printers while breakdown free.
ABC Print Supplies has been assured by its supplier of Dell compatible cartridges that there are no long term plans to curtail production.
