Never run out of ink again
Amazon Dash, the nifty replenishment service that smartly and automatically reorders products and supplies for you, now works with select Samsung brand printers. Once you have it setup and configured, your Samsung printer will place an order for more ink once it detects it’s getting low.
This is an opt-in service, so if you’d rather your printer focus on printing rather than placing orders on your behalf, you can certainly have it that way. For everyone else, you can select what kind of ink you want through through Samsung’s Mobile Print app or with Samsung’s Easy Printer Manager, a desktop print management app for Windows and Mac.
Once it’s setup and configured, the printer will monitor its ink levels and automatically ping Amazon for more once it runs low. The printer doesn’t wait until the ink is completely gone, so in theory so you should never run out of ink.
At present, Amazon Dash works with the following four Samsung printers ranging in price from $100 to $350:
- Samsung SL-M2885FW/XAA Wireless Monochrome Printer with Scanner, Copier, Fax
- Samsung Xpress SL-M2835DW/XAA Wireless Monochrome Printer
- Samsung SL-C480FW/XAA Wireless Color Printer with Scanner, Copier, and Fax
- Samsung SL-C430W/XAA Wireless Color Printer
Automatic ink replenishment isn’t a new concept by any means—HP and Epson will both happily sell you new ink when you run low. Where this is different is that Samsung is nudging its customers to Amazon.
Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Service also works with select Brother brand printers.
