Samsung ML-2165W

 

Few mono lasers take up as little desktop real estate as the Samsung ML-2165W.

Small size. WiFi. Ample paper capacity for personal use in any size office. Reasonably high-quality text and graphics.

Although fast enough for personal use, it's slower than the competition. High running cost.

Samsung ML-2165W

 

This basic monochrome laser is suited for low-volume use, boasting a minimal purchase price and size--but also minimal features and maximal toner costs.

Sharp text output

Manual duplexing only, and not for Macs ; High toner cost

The elegantly simple Samsung ML-2165W monochrome laser printer gives you laser-sharp text for only $150. It’s also quite compact, measuring a mere 13 inches wide by 8.5 inches deep by 7 inches high, so it’s suitable for small work areas. Extra features...

Samsung ML-2165W

 

When you hear the term "personal laser printer," what comes to mind? We bet it's not a device that's smaller than a breadbox and lighter than some laptops. And what is a personal printer, anyway?

Fast ; Very small and light ; Respectable print quality

Slightly substandard gray-scale photo printing for a laser ; High toner cost

A personal monochrome laser, this fast little machine churns out great-looking business and text documents, if at a slightly elevated per-page cost for toner. It's a good pick for budget-strapped small offices or students with moderate output needs.

Samsung ML-2165W

 

Samsung's ML-2165W is one of the smallest laser printers we've seen, but still prints quickly from computers and portable devices.

Very neat when closed ; Quick first page out ; Quick formatted print of Web pages

Prints from phones are slow ; No cover for paper tray ; Awkward download of AnyWeb Print utility

Sharp text output

Manual duplexing only, and not for Macs; high toner cost

For low-volume personal printing or as an adjunct to a colour inkjet, the ML-2165W fits the bill. It’s regrettable, however, that Samsung forces Mac users to jump through hoops to get two-sided printing.

A Compact Mono Laser Printer : Samsung ML-2165W

 

While colour can add to the appeal of a document, it is not an essential requirement for every document. A mono laser printer can give you fast speeds and good quality output.

A few months ago I checked out a mono laser printer that had the smallest footprint I had seen for a device of this type. That printer was the Samsung ML-1865W. Now I have come across another mono laser printer that has an even smaller footprint....
