Excellent speed, Crisp output, Duplex printing, A variety of connectivity options
Other than the Eco mode, which Samsung claims can save up to 20 percent in paper and toner costs, there isn't anything all that special about the M2825DW. But that's OK. Just because it doesn't play music or make snow cones, doesn't make it a bad printer. If you want lots of bells and whistles, you should look at multifunction printers.
Easy maintenance, Well-designed controls
Although we are a bit concerned with the running costs of this machine, Dell's B1164nfw is a versatile MFP for small and home office, covering all the business essentials and producing good quality print, reasonably quickly. Shame there's no cover for its paper tray, though, which may mean you need to close it up between print jobs.
Print quality, Lifetime fuser guarantee
I was impressed with the Dell B1165nfw because it is compact, easy to use and offers small offices and home offices basic business features at a low initial cost and, possibly more important, offers a low cost per page over the long term.
Is the B1165nfw perfect? No. I'd really like to see automatic duplexing, a front side USB port, and a larger paper drawer.
But for a home office or small office (think 1-9 users) looking for an efficient, reliable device, the B1165nfw is a great option.
Fast and extremely effective
The Brother HL-2130 isn't rich in features, and its ability to print graphics is limited. However, if you're after a straightforward text-churner, the Brother is fast and extremely effective. Given that it's available on the street for not much more than £80, that makes it a very impressive deal.
Linux driver link from setup app
This is a well conceived, entry-level mono laser printer for use in a small or home office. It's quick and quiet and produces good quality print, though it's not the cheapest of its peers to run. As much at home connected to a Windows, OS X or Linux machine, it pretty much does what it says on the box and at a very reasonable price.
Quickly printing high quality documents with first page out
Setup was fast and simple with the HP Smart Install, which required no CD, and network connectivity via Ethernet. The built-in USB allows printer connectivity to a single computer or USB flash drive. This bundle of performance and efficiency comes as a hefty weight, 52.7 lb., and price, $899.99. The hp.com website is currently advertising free shipping and an instant $100 discount, reducing the price to $799.99. The weight and price are typical for printers in this category.
Centrally mounted control panel is fairly easy to grasp
The Dell isn't the best choice for top-speed high-quality text, but it still fares reasonably well in these areas. More crucially, it offers some very impressive paper handling for the money. If you need a cheap but robust page-churner to serve a number of systems in a small or medium office, this is a fantastic option.
Great printer, expensive toner
This printer replaced a xerox color laser we had that was at its end of life. This printer is around 1/3 the size, but prints at the same quality and speed. Its great for printing reports in our office as we use colors to determine different items. We still use our black and white lasers for 90% of printing but for those times you need color you cannot beat the price on this.
Slow print performance
Though the Samsung Printer XPress C410W's NFC printing is a neat trick, it's compelling only in a world where NFC is everywhere. It's not. Of its other qualities, the look of the XPress C410W's output is its best suit and may compensate for the unit's mundane speed. We'd like this printer a lot better with more reasonable supply costs, thoughâ??at least a half-star better.
Good print quality
The Samsung Xpress C410W's NFC capabilities - a first for this type of machine - greatly simplify the printing process, as you don't need any apps or drivers. But with Samsung Mobile Print you could already print and scan remotely from your phone or tablet. However, here the lack of duplex and the high cost per page may deter some buyers.
NFC printing, Excellent connectivity including Wi-Fi
To be fair, Samsung doesn't position the C410W as a consumer printer - it's really meant to be used in a small business or small workgroup environment. If it wasn't for the extremely expensive supply costs, we'd recommend the C410W for a high school or college student - the print quality can produce very good documents containing text and graphics, and the Eco mode does save a bit of toner when you're printing draft copies.
Very good quality output, Fast, Automatic duplexing
The Oki C331dn is a workhorse of a printer. The printer itself is relatively inexpensive, but the cost of supplies is on the high side at about 20 cents a page.
But the output quality is really good, and the printer is fast. The C331dn also offers automatic duplexing and a large paper drawer.
No duplex scanning support for the ADF, Pricey toner
You buy a monochrome laser for speed and great text. The B1265dfw delivers both, albeit not as cheaply as one would wish. If you do the math, the total cost of operation will probably work out for small-volume copying and printing. The question you should ask is whether you might not be better off with a full-featured, $300 color inkjet MFP like the Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540, which provides decent speed and impressive print quality, with far superior graphics and a significantly cheaper...
Wireless direct print from mobile devices
The Dell B1265dfw is a solid SOHO all-in-one which prints quickly from a variety of sources, produces good quality prints, is easy to use and doesn't cost the earth to run. Having said that, there are cheaper all-in-ones to run, if that's a key factor in your purchase decision.
