The Samsung ML-1450 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. It offers excellent print quality, solid printing speeds, and more paper capacity than expected for the price.
For a personal laser printer, the ML-1450 has a few surprises up its sleeve. For example, given its class and price, one wouldn't expect as much paper capacity as it provides. It holds 550 sheets in its main tray and another 100 sheets in its multipurpose tray, for an amazing 650 sheets of total capacity. Even more impressive, a second tray of 550 sheets can also be added. This paper capacity comes at some cost as the printer is a little more bulky than other personal lasers. As long as you have the space for it, the extra paper capacity is a worthwhile tradeoff.
The printer driver has some very convenient features. Users can do a variety of different "N-up" prints, which print up to 6 different pages onto one single page, similar to a contact sheet in photography. Users can also print instructions on how to do manual duplexing (two-sided) printing by feeding pages back into the printer.
The Samsung ML-1450 toner cartridges have a capacity of 6,000 pages each, though the printer ships with only a starter cartridge, with a capacity of 3,000 pages. This is an unfortunate cost-saving measure, but is becoming very common among printer manufacturers. By using compatible Samsung ML-1450 toner you can save nearly 50% on you printing costs. Compatible Samsung toner purchased from us is backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Print speed is solid, at around 15 pages per minute. While not the fastest printer at its price range, this should be more than enough speed for most home and small office users. Print quality is excellent. Text is dark and sharp, and readable even at the smallest font sizes. Graphics quality is above average, with very few noticeable problems.
Overall, the Samsung ML-1450 has a lot to offer for its price. Excellent paper capacity and print quality, combined with solid speeds make it a very good value. Users who are tight on space may need to opt for a more compact printer.
