Need to print text documents? You found your printer.

Summary: As a graduate student, I needed to find a basic black and white laser printer that produced high quality text documents...and a lot of them for cheap. So I was naturally apprehensive when I read a few of the reviews of this product on Amazon.
Summary: My Brother HL-1440 started printing garbage pages after six months of use. I decided to get a new one. This fit the bill. This arrived in excellent condition within less than 24 hours after I ordered all the way to Hawaii via Fedex. Excellent job Amazon and Fedex.
Summary: I have recently bought the Samsung ML-2250 laser printer and it is wonderful. A very functional and easy to set up printer, it works great with my Apple mac. It also works fine and is compatible with Linux and WIndows. As I say, it works brilliantly with my Mac.
Summary: For the first few days after I bought this new printer, the paper would stop in the printer about 50% of the time and the red light would blink. But it wasn't really a jam because if I removed the papertray and then put it back in, the sheet of paper would feed through.
Summary: I've had this printer several months and printed hundreds of pages for training manuals and probably hundreds of others copying web page content and scanned articles, including some graphics and photos.
Summary: Fast, excellent text. But don't buy this printer unless you're deaf. For 10-11 minutes after each print job it emits a faint(but not faint enough)high-pitched whine. We couldn't believe this was a "feature," so we got our first unit replaced. Same noise.
Summary: Very noisy. So noisy that I have to turn it off when I'm not using it. Of course, this means that I have to wait while it warms up every time i want to use it. Otherwise, no complaints (but I just got it; we'll see how it stands up to the test of time).
Summary: If you're looking for a black & white printer that offers superior text printing and for an incredibly low price, then this is it. Don't look no further, done deal. Feel free to read full, technical reviews of this product on PCWorld.com and PCMagazine.com. Pros: 1. excellent text printing 2.
Summary: I've had the same problem as some others here...NOISE. In particular a high pitched whine that stays on for about 10 minutes or so when the printer is powered up. I think it's the fan thats the culprit. I thought it was a bad unit so i sent it back and the replacement had the same annoying whine.
