It is a large market out there for laser printers. There are many kinds that will appease the needs of various users with different printing needs. For people looking for a personal printer or a compact, reliable device for a dorm room, the Samsung ML-1010 will be a good fit. Not only is this unit small in size and light in weight, but it is reliable and the replacement toner cartridge
is economically priced. There is only one Samsung ML-1010 toner cartridge that will need to be replaced occasionally, so maintenance will hardly be a burden, which is especially nice for college students.
When using the Samsung ML-1010 toner, 10 pages per minute can be printed at high resolutions. This machine can provide professional quality text documents, but it might lack clarity and precision when it comes to graphics or photos. The toner save mode, which can be executed by pressing a single button on the top of the unit, will reduce the amount of printer toner used per print without negatively affecting the quality.
Equipped with USB and parallel port connections, image transfers will be reasonably quick. There are units available that have more connection modes for faster processing, but the ML-1010 provides more impressive quality. There are two paper trays that sit on top of the machine, which help keep the compact frame simple to store. It has a light weight of less than 15 pounds so it will be easy to move around if necessary.
Once the machine is installed and printing has begun, the starter Samsung ML-1010 toner cartridge will only last for about 1,500 pages. When it does run out, you will need replacement printer toner, which will yield up to 2,500 pages. The cheapest way to go about this would be to purchase remanufactured Samsung ML-1010 toner from third party vendors. These toners are very easy to find and replace.
