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.
Good quality black print, Useful eco-driver options
The SCX-3405W is a good, versatile, mono laser all-in-one, where Samsung has obviously worked hard to provide an enhanced set of eco-facilities in what is still a very low cost machine. The provision of wireless connection and direct print from phones and tablets is also unusual in a budget laser device, though more and more manufacturers are looking at providing these.
WPS connectivity, scan, ID Copy
While I would tend to go for a colour unit when combining a printer with a scanner, I can see the Samsung SCX-3405W performing a useful function in a small office or home environment. Currently this model is being advertised on the Samsung website with a price set at £149.95. A replacement toner cartridge will set you back in the region of £42.40 but this does give you up to 1500-sheet capacity.
MobilePrint app prints directly off mobile devices
This model is suitable for consumers looking for a basic, compact, multifunction mono laser printer. An eco-friendly device, it offers a mode for saving paper and toner. The Wi-Fi function makes the SCX-3405W easy to share within a team of colleagues and enables it to print via mobile devices.
Great printer so far and great value
So far, I've used the printer wirelessly and through a wired connection. I've only used the main paper tray and have so far not experienced any jams. Duplexing works well and print quality is what you would expect from a laser. It isn't particularly noisy and has eco settings to turn itself off when no in use. There is an eco toner mode as well, which can be engaged through a panel button or through the web-based administration interface.
I have had this printer for about a month and really really like it. I bought it to replace a Brother (click on my name to read my review on that one). Although my previous multi-function device worked well, this Canon has the following improvements: Scans in duplex, has an ID-card photocopy function that I love, and MOST OF ALL IT IS QUIET. I do not use the fax feature. I have a PC with windows 7 and I was able to install it easily.
Much like the US-only Canon MF4880dw, the MF4890dw delivers a well-balanced set of features. The bonus here is that the MF4890dw also offers a duplexing ADF, so you can scan, copy, or fax duplex documents. This effort from Canon is a fast performer which produces decent quality results, and it's well worth the asking price.
Great copies first time out of the box!
Over the years I have had many different copiers which claimed they would be great. Well, this is a great copier, scanner, fax machine combination. Set up instructions were very poor and would have been better if the easy set up instructions were printed out with directions rather than just pictures.
That being said, the rest of the set up once you took away all the tape, foam, and other packaging materials was easy.
This printer does exactly what it is designed to do and it even exceeded our expectations. The whole office loves it and it works much better than our older laser printer. I would say that this is the best deal on Amazon for the quality you get. If you only need a black and white printer that can handle high volumes daily, then this is perfect for you! Fax and copier functions work great as well.
Direct USB port, wireless connectivity
The $399 HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw bundles all of HP's latest technologies into a tight package, but the 3.5-inch touch-screen display doesn't offer enough unique features to warrant the price jump to $400, especially compared with competing devices. Small businesses and home offices shopping for a reliable monochrome laser printer for quick prints should ignore the HP LaserJet M401dw's inflated price tag and look for a better deal.
Very quick, both in setup and performance
This printer has worked out fantastically with regards to being a wireless laser printer. Setup was a dream, and network integration is a cinch.
I do agree with the review above about the screen being fragile (very accurate, a misguided swing of the hand will have it cracked no problem). Honestly, though, once you get it set up the screen becomes rather useless, so folding it down is no big deal for me, as long as pages come out I am content.
Print quality, Web, Mobile Apps
Like the single function HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dn, I found the LaserJet Pro 400 M425dn to be very functional. The print speeds were quick and reliable, the print quality was quite good and I find the web-connected and mobile applications to add value that some competitors can't match as of this writing.
And for only $100 more, you can get three additional devices - scan, copy and fax - as well as a 50-sheet duplexing automatic document feeder.
Produces exceptional photo prints for the price.
HP's LaserJet Pro 400 Color MFP M475dw is a solid product, with nice output, average toner costs, and middling speed. The company also sells a "dn" model that saves you $100 if you don't need Wi-Fi. If you're looking for alternatives, competing MFPs include the Oki MC561, Xerox WorkCentre 6505, and Brother MFC-9970CDW.
