The Samsung ML-1451 laser printer is designed for the home or small office. It has the speed and paper handling of a small office printer, but is affordable enough for home use. The ML-1451N model has built-in networking which allows it to be easily shared across a network of computer users. While this places it in the class of office computers, it will also appeal to home users who need its network abilities, because its price is more in line with personal lasers.
Despite its affordable price, the Samsung ML-1451 laser printer has a lot more to offer than a typical personal laser. Its paper handling is very generous. Its main tray can hold 550 sheets, and it even includes a multipurpose tray with a capacity of 100 sheets. If that is still not enough paper capacity, an additional 550-sheet tray can be added for expansion.
Setting up the unit is very simple. Connecting to a single computer is easy and direct, and even connecting the unit to a network is quick and painless. Once connected to an ethernet jack, it configures itself for sharing.
Samsung ML-1451 toner cartridges have a capacity of 6,000 pages, and are fairly inexpensive, which leaves the user with a fairly low cost per page. Using third-party compatible laser toner cartridges cartridges can save even more money. The only real disappointment with the unit is that it includes a starter printer toner cartridge of only 3,000 pages, meaning users will have to buy a replacement sooner. Users considering a color model should consider that Samsung CLP-300 toner is similar in cost per page for black prints, with the added benefit of color.
Print speed is around 15 pages per minute, which should be fast enough even for a small office of networked users. Print quality is excellent across the board. Text quality is sharp and detailed, and graphics are easily good enough for most office users.
Overall, the Samsung ML-1451 offers an impressive combination of stellar features and a very affordable price. Small office users and home users will find a lot to like with this model.
