A stunning little printer that is excellent value for money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung ML-2165W Wireless Mono Laser Printer (Accessory)
Having bought a new laptop running Windows 8, my rather ancient Samsung ML-4500 mono laser was not compatible as there are no printer drivers. As I had no problems whatsoever with that printer in more than 10 years of regular use, I decided to stay loyal to the brand and have not been disappointed with this new Samsung. I had read some slightly negative comments about the setting up of the 2165W but I found it straightforward and very easy to get it and up running wirelessly - just follow the printed instructions and/or electronic guide on the CD. As an added bonus I have been able to print on it from my iPad after installing the Samsung mobile printer app.
I am not suggesting that this should be the printer of choice for anybody with a large throughput, but for everyday, sharp quality printing that is primarily text, I doubt that there is a better value printer on the market. I have seen more robust and solidly built printers but it seems to be of a good build quality to me, especially when one considers its price. Obviously, I cannot comment on the life expectancy of the toner, but I seem to remember similar comments about my old ML-4500 . . . As a former teacher who has printed out thousands of sheets during my career, it is my experience that the toners in all mono lasers, (be they Canon, HP, Brother etc) seem to have a very long life and are really cost effective compared with colour printers of any description. I would be very surprised if any purchaser of this printer could fail to be impressed with it. I for one am more than satisfied.
