Looks- If you are looking for both style and function the Samsung ML 1630 printer is the ideal investment. The printer wires, screws and general mechanics are contained in highly fashionable, black, double storey slabs instead of your normal boxy, white housing. It's dimensions are all under 15 inches. A inexpensive piece of art at under US$200.00.

Controls- The printer controls are so easy to operate and understand with only two selection buttons. More style is added to the device by the blue LED screen which shows you pages and print status in words and graphics format.

Print Quality- Print quality is rather standard at 600x200dpi resolutions, monochrome laser printing and in general only suitable for home or start-up business use. Text printing is clean and outlines are without smudges, even down to the smallest character size. Graphics printing is not to shabby at all with only small flaws in the form of dithers and bands. However if you need immaculate, high quality prints especially in terms of graphics and photo printing, rather invest in colour printer

Media Types and Sizes- A very big disadvantage to the printer is it's limited paper capacity of 100 sheets in and 30 sheets out. However the printer's overall duty cycle is an astonishing 5000 pages. All standard paper sizes are compatible with the printer incl. Letter and Exec. Media types however are a little more limited, with envelope and card printing no supported. Your first page will be produced in a couple of seconds from power to print so there is no more waiting for printer warm-up before printing starts. The printers' engine speed is slow at when compared to other printers in same price range.

Port options- Modern port options are included with the printer in the form of an USB port, so there is no need for additional port investment or old-fashioned connections. Note that no connection cables are included with the printer.

Memory options- A very small amount of memory is included with the printer and unfortunately memory upgrading is not available. So if you are not satisfied with 8 Mb's memory due to large printing environment or networking rather opt for another printer.

Systems accepted- Windows, Linux and Apple Mac operating systems are all compatible with the printer. This is good news for especially Apple Mac users who generally encounter problems with printer and system compatibility.

Standard warranty- A 12 month standard warrant is included with your printer purchase, with coverage restrictions on parts and labour. Always use genuine parts and cartridges as it may have an effect on your warranty and proper operation of the device.

Toner- A Samsung ML 1630 Toner cartridge with thousand page capacity comes standard with your printer as part of a start-up deal. The normal retail price of a cartridge is a hefty US$ 70.00. However you should keep in mind that print capacity on your normal replacement Samsung toner cartridge is 2000 pages. For more information, check out our site http://www.qtoner.us.
