Samsung ML-2955DW Review: Cheap Laser Printer, Pricey Toner

 

The Samsung ML-2955DW monochrome laser printer is notable for its very low street price ($150 as of February 8, 2012) and its full network connectivity, namely USB, ethernet, and Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, the expensive toner restricts it to low-volume use.

Very low purchase price

Extremely expensive toner

Bargain laser printers don’t get much cheaper than this model, but watch the pricey toner--the cost is tolerable only if you print fairly little.

This next product arrived with a two-pin power lead which was hardly the best start. Fortunately I was able to work round this problem.

The Samsung ML-2955DW is a mono laser printer. The “D” and “W” designation part of its title refers to its Duplex and Wi-Fi capability. This mono laser gives the user a choice of Ethernet, USB or Wi-Fi connectivity with you providing any leads (other...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Meh, could be ok

 

I was printing several hundred pages a week so that is more than likely the reason it failed. if this is just gonna be a lightly used home printer it will probably work fine.

Fast printer, decently cheap toner

Unit failed after about a year and a half. The fuser unit failed (the part that heats up the drum). Well the temp sensor failed anyway. i was able to fix it by removing the temp sensor and hard wiring it. (i would not recommend this if you plan on...
