Every office needs the proper equipment to run an efficient operation. Many people also prefer to have a personal printer at home. The Samsung ML-1620 is a laser printer that can be used in either situation. It has a monthly print maximum of 5,000 pages, which will certainly suffice in a home and should be durable enough for most work environments. It is a monochrome unit, meaning it does not have color capabilities, but it does specialize in standard text documents.
The memory that comes built-in to the ML-1620 is 2 MB. This unfortunately cannot be upgraded. Many machines offer expandability for growing offices, this unit is not one of them. It connects to a PC via USB port and has compatibility with major operating systems such as Windows and Linux. Mac users will need to look elsewhere, though.
There is one Samsung ML-1620 toner cartridge that is used and it has the capacity to produce up to 2,000 prints before expiring. Once the printer toner starts to run low, replacements will be easy to find. They can either be purchased directly from the manufacturer or from alternative suppliers online. The third party vendors sell remanufactured Samsung ML-1620 toner cartridges as well as new, name-brand toners. Both types will produce the same quality and yield.
At its best, the ML-1620 can print up to 17 pages per minute. Though this is not the fastest output rate on the market, the warm up time of only 30 seconds is definitely above average. The Samsung ML-1620 toner can reach resolutions of up to 600x600 dpi. The actual frame of the machine is 14.1x11.8x8.5 inches, which will be compact enough to fit on a small desk or table. Overall, the ML-1620 is a good buy for a consumer with average needs.
