Dell is definitely considered one of the big dogs in the printer and toner sales world. Being the 3rd highest ranking PC supplier in the world makes Dell a tough competitor for both design and quality. They stay ahead of the game but pushing new technology in all areas of the desktop and data center realm. From PC’s and protectors to printers and toners, not only is the brand known for its leading innovations, but it has proven to be a reliable company since Michael Dell founded it in 1984.
What are some of the brand’s top toner and printer products?
The Inkjet printer 720 is a popular choice for those that are printing high resolution documents. It is great for things like flyers and brochures. The 720 has an output of 7 pages per minute (ppm) when printing in color and an average 13 ppm for tasks in black and white. The resolution is at 4800×1200 dpi.
Printing in color and black and white, the Dell 725 is another popular choice. This model can print up to 14 A4 pages a minute and as it is known to be both affordable and fast. It has the same high resolution of 4800×1200 dpi like the 720 model. One of this model’s features is the Ink Management System that alerts users when they are running out of ink. It has a compact design and comes with Dell Picture Studio software that is used for editing and printing photos.
The 810 is an all in one printer that has an array of everyday printing uses. This model boasts itself as easy to use with its single cartridge drop in and simple installation process. Like the 725, the 810 is equipped with Dell Picture Studio, allowing users to directly scan their images into the editing software. Borderless printing and an average print speed of 12ppm for black and whites and 13ppm for color. The small compact design of the 810 fits conveniently into any small or limited home or office space.
One of the main concerns about Dell users is the cost of cartridge refills. Users are reminded that they can keep toner refill expenses down by purchasing compatible cartridges instead of the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) products. This option is available for virtually every Dell printer model and is considered an economic and environmentally friendly choice. Users can save money and help reduce landfill waste while still enjoying the same quality print from their favorite brands, like Dell.
It is amazing to think that only a few years ago no one heard of, much less had, a tablet device such as the iPad. Cell phones now do more computing and provide us more access to the world than even the fastest computers not many years ago. We are a world that is very connected by emerging technology. You can’t walk 10 feet down a busy street or stand in line at any store without seeing someone surfing the web on their smart phone. Most people wouldn’t know what to do without such ease of access to their interests and services that they want at the touch of a finger.
Most businesses are now making every attempt to keep up with technology and provide their services in a very accessible way to their customers. One field that has generally lagged behind in all modes of technology is the field of medicine. There are many reasons for this. Notoriously doctors are bad business men and women and don’t have the time or interest in using new technology to advance their practice and communicate with patients. Government rules and regulations also make it difficult as there are many privacy rules which must be integrated into new technologies as well.
There is a growing trend in medicine to provide quick access to your doctor. This new technology has been labeled “telemedicine.” Telemedicine refers to the ability to communicate with your doctor NOT needing to be in the office. This is more than just a phone call with a question, but rather a complete office visit with a treatment plan at the conclusion. The goal of this is to allow for patient convenience by avoiding long waiting room times and quicker access to the doctor. This also allows the doctor more time freeing up in-office visits for sicker patients who need to be examined and require more time.
This field is growing quickly with many companies developing the technology to link patients easily to their doctor. Some platforms use video conferencing so your physician can see you and vice versa. Some systems use phone calls. All are integrated directly to your medical record as if it were any other visit. Now imagine picking up your smartphone and having “face time” with your doctor? Sure beats sitting in the waiting room for hours!
Some limitations at this point do exist. Insurance only reimburses certain medical conditions such as mental health visits and kidney failure. I strongly suspect as more practices choose to use this technology (and patients), insurance companies will see the cost saving benefits and agree to reimburse for the visit. Not all doctors use this technology. In fact relatively few do at this time. As stated before, doctors are slow to catch on. Pain management doctors seem to be the first to be adopting this useful technology. Pain patients require frequent follow up. Allowing online pain management via telemedicine lets pain management doctors to stay closely connected with their patients without the patient having to sit in a waiting room month after month. Also, there are relatively few pain specialists. Not everyone lives in a metropolitan city with thousands of doctors at their fingertips. Well now the doctor is at your fingertips through telemedicine. Patients in more remote areas can visit with a pain doctor through online pain management just as if you were in the big city.
Telemedicine is in its infancy. With the rapid growth of technology and the demand consumers have to easy access via this technology to the services they want, the healthcare field will adapt. For those with chronic pain, luckily the option is available today.
