Excerpt: Samsung's SPP-2040 looks as good today as it did when we first reviewed it, back in November 2005 when it cost £150. It's a particularly stylish mix of black and silver, with a great little flip-up display. This is a particularly easy printer to set up, with a simple install program and little physical preparation before you're ready to start printing. Though the display is small, it's sharp and bright, and the menu system is easy to understand.
