Although most personal laser printers are similar, there are subtle differences between models. The Samsung ML-2510 has the same compact size as most models in its line, but it has a more affordable price by making a few tradeoffs for buyers who don't need those specific features. The result is a very affordable machine for those with basic needs, and Samsung ML-2510 toner cartridges keep printer toner costs low as well.
Prints speeds are very fast, at up to 25 pages per minute, and the unit's 1200x600 dpi resolution provides very sharp and detailed prints, especially when it comes to text. The ML-2510 (also referred to as the ML-2510/XAA and ML-2510/XAX) has a large paper capacity of 250 sheets and even a fairly large output paper tray that can hold up to 100 sheets, perfect for users who frequently print many pages at a time. It connects to a computer via USB or parallel port, offering flexibility for older computers.
A few of the sacrifices that were made for its lower price include 8 MB of RAM instead of the higher 32 MB of other models and a 150 MHz processor instead of one with 400 MHz. These tend to be small sacrifices, however, and the average home or small office user wouldn't likely notice the difference.
Replacing the Samsung toner
is a quick and simple process. The starter Samsung ML-2510 toner cartridges included with new models are a bit disappointing, but full-size Samsung ML-2510 toner cartridges offer a very low cost per page. The overall cost of Samsung ML-2510 toner makes it one of the most affordable models on the market for low operating costs.
The Samsung ML-2510 features a great balance of speed, quality and processing power that keeps costs low while still offering the necessary features that buyers really want.
