So, I need to get a cheap AIO (~$100). I know that Dell carries a lot of peripherals at a pretty good price and the Dell coupons can sometimes save a good bit of cash. I was looking and found one that meets my needs, but in the interest of determining if it is a good price and what kind of build quality, I'm curious to know what brand they are rebadging.

I think most of the printers are rebadged Lexmark units. I'm not sure where you can find an equivalency list, though. They have also rebadged some Samsung notebooks in the recent past (one of the ultra-portable class units they offered).

They are rebadged lexmark printers. The downside is they also modify the ink cartridges. This means you cant use the LexMark ink cartridges and must get the Dell cartridges from them.

Betwixt the two, I'll stay away from buying my printer from Dell.com.

Thanks guys.
