I have a Dell 920 printer and was wondering whether anybody knew of
alternative priner cartridges that could be used rather than having to do to
Dell all the time ... it looks similar to a Lexmark to me

so far as i know (could be wrong, but i'm 90% certain) the dell 920 is
a rebadged lexmark. as are some, if not all, of there other printers.
just as some of there speakers are rebadged altec lansing or harmon
kardon. if this is in fact the case, then simply find what model
lexmark it is and look for compatible cartridges. should find a bunch.
just make sure there good quality carts and of course, fully
compatible.

Actually your 90% wrong, your correct in saying the 920 is a rebadged
Lexmark as is one of Dells other printers the others being rebadged Samsung
and Canon however the one thing all the printers have is that the cartridges
wether laser or onkjet have a special keying system which means they wont
fir in the corresponding manufacturers machines and vice versa so you have
to buy from Dell, so dont waste your money by trying to make em fit

I'm looking also for the 720 printer cartrideges.... got it "free" with the
laptop, figured I would use it till the cartridges run out then maybe toss
it... funny thing, good old Dell only sends a demonstration cartridges that
don't carry the normal amount of ink. No shipping, or tax for the printer
so I accepted it. Now to find a alternate cartridge that will fit.

Unfortunately, until Dell printers reach a critical mass, aftermarket
cartridges will be slim pickings.

You may be able to refill them, but Lexmark carts won't fit - and there
likely aren't third party options (yet; Dell's printer business is
growing quickly).

Try these if they are available:

Refills about half the cost and they do Lexmark cartridges.
They have rigged a Lexmark printer to test the Dell so it can be done at
least that way.
