Samsung ML-2851ND review: Samsung ML-2851ND

 

Samsung ML-2851ND

Lightning-fast text speed; excellent text print quality; compact; built-in duplexing; network ready with straightforward setup; comprehensive driver settings.

Expensive; mediocre graphics print quality.

Small businesses should take a serious look at the Samsung ML-2851ND's monolaser because of its excellent print speed, text print quality, autoduplexer, and networking features. It's a little more expensive than the competition, but its chart-topping...

Samsung ML-2851ND

 

The Samsung ML-2851ND ($300 street) isn't the least expensive personal and small-office monochrome laser on the planet, but it may well be the best bargain. It showed off one strong point after another on my tests, with no unpleasant surprises to steal...

Fast. High-quality text. Built-in duplexer. Low cost per page

Although photo and graphics quality are both typical for a monochrome laser, they're less than ideal

The Samsung ML-2851ND leaves its closest competition in the dust, with fast speed, high-quality text, ample paper handling, and a low cost per page.
