  • Summary: Clearly affordable! Starts quickly and prints quickly. Good quality urskrifterna! For 800kr then just to buy, clear as a bell! Helt klart prisvärd! Startar snabbt och skriver ut snabbt. Bra kvalité på urskrifterna! För 800kr så är det bara att köpa, klockrent!

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

  • 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! The only shame about the product is that a new, authentic toner cartridge from Samsung is actually only £10 cheaper than buying the printer itself complete with the original toner which seems...

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. My parents also use the printer very heavily as they are self-employed and working from home, having to print a large amount of customer order details per day.
  • 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

This printer does the job for us but sometimes it can be temperamental

An excellent option for the heavier home user/ home office.

  • Excerpt: When replacing our ancient inkjet printer that finally stopped working a couple of years ago we looked into other inkjet printers. However the high cost of replacing the ink, even using non branded and refilled cartridges and reported reliability problems with lots of models led us to consider a laser printer. We chose the Samsung ML 1640 and have been extreamly pleased with this decision. Most of the time we need a printer for typical home uses ie.

  • Summary: "I am really pleased with this printer, its so fast, much faster than any other printer I`ve had, ok its mono (only black and white) but I don`t need a color printer with the added plus of not having to buy sometimes three cartridge. A very good printer for my needs.

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). Never had a paper jam either, which was a real annoyance with some printers I've used before. Definitely worth choosing this over an ink printer, as long as you don't need colour prints.

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. That aside, this laser printer really looks good on top of a table.
  • 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....

  • 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! And to top it all, the cartridges are fixed so it is not easy to re-use them.
