Summary: In terms of performance, it’s hard to argue with the quality of the Samsung ML-1865. It’s relatively pint-sized when it comes to printers, and though we’d like to have seen a little more detail in printed images, it does a sharp, fine job in pretty much every other department. The elephant in the room will always be colour multi-function kits however, and with an RRP of £79.99 the ML-1865 printer could do with being a little more competitive in that respect, or at least...
Conclusion: The 1865 is obviously a very basic printer but it goes about its job well, being fast, offering excellent quality text prints and a useful little add-on in the One-Touch printing feature. If a basic yet usable monochrome laserjet is all you need, this is a compact and stylish way of going about it, but we do think it’s a little on the pricey side.
Pros: Attractive and compact design, decent print speeds, excellent quality text prints, useful One-Touch print feature
Cons: Very basic, a little expensive considering the alternatives
