Good quality - just a shame about the new toner cost!

HelenaSmith, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer originally around three years ago, and use it to print off a lot of essays and documents for my studies. The printer seems to me to be excellent in terms of quality. The 'introductory' toner cartridge has so far lasted me three years and has only just run out!

Does the job but can be temperamental

  • Excerpt: As a student, I rely on having a good printer as I often need to print out my essays, notes, lecture slides, articles etc. I have been staying at my parents' house this academic year, so I have had a lot of chance to put their printer to the test.
  • Pros: Quite quick, clear printing, easy to use, withstands heavy usage
  • Cons: Loud, bulky, some issues with paper jams and picking up too many sheets of paper

A very decent monochromatic laser printer

  • Summary: I've been using this printer for half a year and it never gave me any trouble. Setup in Windows 7 is easy, print quality is good, double-sided printing is a manual but easy process (driver pops up a message on your screen telling you how to put the paper back in).

If you don't print a ton a month - this one is for you

  • Excerpt: Caution: Out of the box its toner cartridge came wrapped in black plastic and is already inserted properly into the laser printer. You need to remove the plastic wrap and re-insert the cartridge. The printed and CD manual was kinda' vague about it. I almost turned it ON right out of the box.
  • Pros: Good black and white laser printer and very simple to use
  • Cons: may not be for real heavy duty use like hundreds of pages everyday .

Nice Looking Printer....

AMX, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer from Tesco at what seemed to be a great price. The printer did the job and when the ink/toner finished I discovered, with amazement and great disappointment, that a new replacement cartridge was almost as expensive as the printer itself!

Nice printer, shame about the chip in the toner cartridge.

Dr. Lyndon Smith, Amazon
19 January 2010
  • Summary: Have you wondered why the ML 1640 printer is so cheap? The reason is that they force you to buy their highly expensive toner cartridges. These cartridges are fitted with unnecessary chips which count the number of pages you have printed and then, when you reach an arbitrary limit they stop you from...

Great so far, but buy a cartridge & usb cable with it

Mr. S. D. Halliday "Assistant Professor of Ec..., Amazon
24 November 2009
  • Summary: My wife and I bought this printer as we are both aspiring grad students and have to print lots of articles and our own writing. Here are a few points on our experience: 1) We went through the 'introductory' toner quickly, and it reached fewer than 500 pages (one 500 sheet pack of paper).
