The Samsung ML-3050 is a monochrome laser toner cartridge
printer that was designed to fit comfortably into a small office with steady printing needs. It has USB and parallel connections, which are pretty standard and will work with almost any kind of computer. This unit will expand with a growing company and provide reliability and efficiency. It has a relatively compact frame that measures 10.5x15x16 inches, which should fit on any desk top, even one that is already occupied with another piece of equipment.
Up to 28 pages can be printed each minute, which is impressive and faster than many printers on the market. Unfortunately there is not LCD on the top panel, only a few buttons with very specific purposes. One of those buttons is to activate the TonerSave mode, which will reduce the amount of Samsung ML-3050 toner that is used for each print. When this mode is being used, quality may decrease slightly, but with these black-and-white text documents it will hardly be noticeable.
There is one standard Samsung ML-3050 toner cartridge that comes with the printer, which contains black Samsung toner
and can yield up to 4,000 pages. For small offices, this count should be enough, but for larger businesses, there are high-capacity toners available. The high capacity Samsung ML-3050 toner cartridge has a maximum page yield of 8,000 pages.
This unit features two trays—a 250 sheet standard paper tray and a 100-sheet multi-purpose media tray for the various types of paper that this machine can print on. There is also an additional 250-sheet paper tray that can be purchased separately and added if necessary. The ML-3050 does have networking capabilities, so multiple users will be able to share this one printer. This monochrome printer has fast speeds, good quality and the reliability that every office looks for in any equipment.
