Samsung ML 1665
Advantages: More robust than previous Samsung laser printers
Disadvantages: Replacement toner is expensive, toner refills not available yet
There's nothing worse than being handed a business document printed out in inkjet. It just looks amateurish and childish. Inkjets are geared towards school children who want to print out their course work and housewives who want to print out greeting cards. Anyone who wants to be taken seriously in the business world should invest in a laser printer.
Recently the tray mechanism in my Samsung laser printer stopped working properly so I was in need of a replacement. Searching on the internet, there seemed to be a lot of deals around especially for ink jet printers for next to nothing but for anyone accustomed to using a laser printer it's difficult to go back to using an inkjet.
Browsing on the internet, I eventually ordered the Samsung ML1665 from amazon for 50 GBP. Considering my last laser printer was samsung and broke I was a bit apprehensive about buying another Samsung however this was the cheapest laser printer available.
Upon taking the unit out of the box I was pleasantly surprised by how small the printer is. Compared to my previous samsung, the unit is extremely compact and looks more robust. The base of the unit appears to have a metal plate. Perhaps, this unit has a more durable tray mechanism however only time will tell since I only just bought it.
Samsung appear to have done without any of the wireless or network functions which appear to to popular with the inkjet printers. However, this isn't too much of a problem, since I connected the unit to my Linkstation via USB. The Samsung printer is available to any computer on the network.
The print quality is extremely good, as one would expect from a laser printer. There are no strange lines or print errors. Also, the unit can print extremely quickly.
While the printer itself is only 50GBP a replacement toner is around 40 GBP. Unfortunately, at the moment there are no 3rd party toners and I haven't found any toner refills available. However, this printer is still relatively new. Hopefully, cheap toner refills will be available soon.
For 50GBP, this is a very good printer. If you just want to print out documents in black & white I highly recommend this printer.
Summary: Highly recommended
