Samsung ML-1670

The unique selling point of this printer is its one-touch, print screen button. This is surprisingly useful, as it scales the print automatically, but it might be more conveniently run as a Ctrl sequence from your keyboard. Otherwise, this is a fairly mainstream, low-cost personal laser, with fold-down trays and 150-sheet capacity. It connects using USB and is rated at 16ppm. I saw 15ppm, so this is another quick machine for its size. It prints text well, though greyscale fills undulate a little, without being banded. Running costs, at 3.2p per ISO page, are above average, but only by a few tenths of a penny.

Just released, this new personal laser has been updated with some more contemporary features. Leading amongst these is its direct wireless connection to Apple and Android devices, though when I tested the link, a page took over a minute to print. It also offers a USB port, though there is no Ethernet. The printer is rated at 20ppm and managed 15ppm under test, so is competitive in its price range. Print quality is excellent, with sharp black text and greyscales which are both smooth and easily distinguished, one from another. The cost per ISO page is at 2.9p, well below average. ®
