Summary: It prints good decent pictures. We've printed lots with it and the "ink" hasn't run out. I haven't had a single problem with it. It installs this screen capture utility on your PC, which is uncalled for, but you probably could tick it off when installing the drivers. It's good screen capture program, but sometimes I find it a hassle when I just want a quick screenshot. I suppose I could uninstall it, but maybe some day I might find it really handy.
Summary: To start off with, this is an extremely reliable printer. The only problems I have experienced with it are mostly down to me trying it out with paper it can't handle, so while that is a small matter it does demonstrate immediately a limitation with the 1865: it has a somewhat limited capacity for taking on the heavier paper stock.
Summary: Received On time, and also bought the warranty as it seemed a good deal. A few misconceptions that i had, but thats because i was being ignorant; -Its a Black And White Laser printer and does not take color cartridges, -Its not a wireless printer although you can connect it to the wireless up-link or airport for the mac. I needed it to print some leaflets and did a great job. Arrives with a cartridge but i would recommend you to buy an additional one.
SAMSUNG ML-1865 Black Mono Laser Printer. Better than I thought it would be!
7 March 2012
Summary: I finally got fed up with ink-jet printers, with their expensive tiny ink cartridges and annoying chips, resulting over time in several printers going to the tip. These days most of my printing is black lettering so decided to buy the Samsung ML-1865 Black Mono Laser Printer. I was amazed at the quick delivery, and delighted with the printer. I thought it might have a small 'starter' cartridge and I might have to soon shell out on a new one. Not the case!
Summary: just got this and its nice. I got sick of ink jets too as the cost was mounting up to get some more inks and I wanted a smaller printer so went for this instead of new inkjet cardiges. I like it but its is not WHITE... if you are looking for a white one which this said it was/is...... it is not. They do a grey version too, but this is a dirty white.... not gloss white which I imagined. prints fine, although haven't tried the wireless setting yet.
Summary: Bought the printer about 3 months ago thinking Amazon was the cheapest. We were wrong it was half the price in Tesco, this is probably the reason for reducing it. We also paid postage, which was taken out as an extra afterwards. Our fault entirely we should have checked but we have always used Amazon and they have been by far the cheapest. Unfortunately not this time!!!! The printer does exactly what it says on the tin.
Summary: Only one criticism; I purchased this to enable me to print Adobe documents, but for some reason it won't print as a batch, though I can print one page at a time. Given I want to print off a 100 page booklet, it is taking some time to do. In every other respect it does what it says on the box. In the long run I am hoping to benefit from savings in ink costs, but I won't know that just yet. The quality of the prints and printing speed I cannot fault.
