The Samsung ML-1440 is a monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. It has decent printing speeds, and is a very economical printer. It may be a little too large for tight spaces. It is a monochrome unit, meaning is only has black toner.
The Samsung ML-1440 is generally designed to be a home or small office printer, but many competing units have a much more compact frame. The ML-1440 is not really bulky, but its footprint may be too large for home or small office where space is tight. The printer measures 11.6 inches by 14.3 inches by 16.1 inches and weighs 27 pounds, so it is fairly easy to move around, even for one person.
The ML-1440 has a single paper tray which can hold up to 270 sheets, but does not have a multipurpose tray. Instead, the printer has a single-sheet manual feeder to be used for alternate media types. This may work well enough for most users, but it can be inconvenient for users who use alternate paper types often.
The printer ships with a starter cartridge with a capacity of only 3,000 pages. The standard cartridge has a capacity of 6,000 pages. Samsung ML-1440 toner cartridges tend to be a little expensive, but using third-party compatible cartridges can be much more economical, and result in a much lower per-page cost. The ML-1440 also has a Toner Save mode, which reduces the amount of toner used on each page. This combination of using compatible Samsung ML-1440 toner and the Toner Save mode can result in a significant savings, especially over an inkjet printer.
Print speed is around 15 pages per minute and is nothing to scoff at, although some competing printers offer a little more speed for around the same price. Print quality is excellent, producing a resolution of 1200 dpi, which is competitive.
Overall, the Samsung ML-1440 has excellent print quality and decent speeds, but users looking for a compact printer may find it too bulky. Lack of a multipurpose tray may be inconvenient for some users.
