Smoothly designed, with a small, neat footprint, this machine is designed to be opened when used, as the paper tray is the front cover and the output tray pulls out from just about. The sparsely-populated control panel still contains all the functions, as there’s no fax facility on this machine and only a USB port. There’s a button for a direct screen print from an attached PC, which can be handy. The highest speed I measured was 14ppm and there’s no duplex print. Output from the machine is excellent for text and good for greyscales and photos, but the cost per page, from the 1500-page cartridge, is a high 3.3p. Samsung is phasing this product out, but it's still widely available.

A small footprint machine, though one that gets a good bit bigger when you open the 150-sheet paper tray to print. The controls are arranged on a fold-out panel on the right-hand side. The machine offers wireless connectivity as well as USB. There’s no duplex print, but the single-sided speed reaches nearly 17ppm, a worthwhile improvement on the SCX-3205. An A4 copy takes just 10s. Print quality is good from the enhanced 1,200dpi print engine and page costs are a bit better, at 2.9p, though still not up with the best in this group.

Ten... mono laser all-in-one printers
One wonders about...
What protocols they support? What interfaces they have?
Re: One wonders about...
That's actually the most important question. Non postscript printers are a pain in the a*** to get running.
It needs to be mentioned that Kyocera often seem like a good printer for the price but you will be massively ripped off by their chipped toner cartridges.
They are chipped so your printer will only accept genuine Kyocera products and although they say that your cartridge will do X pages, it doesn't matter if you print a single letter on that page or even nothing at all, it will still count it as a page on the page counter.
I once opened a Kyocera cartridge that our Kyocera Mita FS-1020MFP had decided was empty and refused to print from.
I'm not joking....seriously....it was nearly full, but the chip made it a piece of junk.
And the cartridges are not cheap let me tell you.....
Bit of a rip off, I've decided to steer clear of Kyocera from now on.
Brother MFC-7460DN - £239 ? Ouch!
I purchased a MFC-7860DW about two months ago - for $250CDN.
It's the MFC-7860DN plus Wifi interface - you can D/L a free app to print and scan from iOS devices. Very happy.
Actually, I've had a few Brother printers over the years, they're great value. And work as advertised.
There’s a button for a direct screen print from an attached PC, which can be handy.
I have visions of someone walking past, pressing this button, and taking my screen print without my knowing now.
