  • Aimed at personal use or shared use in a micro office, the Samsung Multifunction Xpress M2885FW delivers better overall output quality than most monochrome laser multifunction printers.


  • This inexpensive mono-laser all-in-one has unusually fast print speeds, plus a host of convenience features. Our only quibble is with the toner cost.


  • The Samsung Xpress M2885FW is a good printer that's fast, compact and low in toner cost, plus, it uses NFC to print documents wirelessly from smartphones and tablets. That said, we would have preferred a larger display to make the numerous functions easier to navigate through.


  • The Brother HL-L2300D's small size and excellent paper handling—with a 250-sheet tray, manual feed, and duplexer—should be at the top of your list for a personal monochrome laser printer.


  • The HL-2300D is a fast and affordable entry-level laser with low running costs.


  • The Dell Smart Printer - S2810dn monochrome laser delivers suitable speed, output quality, and paper handling for moderate use in a small office.


  • The Dell S2810dn is a speedy mono laser that's cheap to run, with good-quality output. It’s bulkier than it needs to be, and its 250-sheet paper tray will mean more frequent refills than you’d expect for this class of printer. Even so, it represents a good choice for small-office or workgroup use.


  • A print-only mono laser, the S2810dn is a solid performer, but other lasers (even Dell ones) offer deeper feature sets for less cash.


  • The Dell Printer - E310dw combines small size, fast speed, and both Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, making it a good fit as either a personal monochrome laser printer or a shared printer in a micro office.


  • This budget mono laser packs some unexpected features, including double-sided printing, Wi-Fi, and a manual feed slot. However, its toner costs are high, and the print quality for graphics and photos is subpar.


  • The Dell E310dw makes a decent personal printer, as long as you don’t print too much. If your application calls for laser-class output on a moderate scale, this little Dell can do that.


  • The Dell Multifunction Printer - E515dw's text quality is slightly below par, but good enough for most business use, and the printer delivers most of the multifunction printer features you probably need.


  • This under-$200 monochrome LED MFP model prints well enough (and fast enough)—just recognize that its cost per page is a bit too high for more than light duty.


  • Overall, this isn’t a bad printer. It’s great for printing receipts, quotes, you name it—as long as your print load isn’t too heavy. If so, Dell makes high-volume printers with low CPPs, as do other printer makers.
