The Samsung ML-2010 laser printer is designed for the personal or small office user. It offers speed and quality at an affordable price for both the printer and Samsung toner, but small paper capacity and poor graphics quality may be issues for some users.
The Samsung ML-2010 laser printer has a lot to offer for its affordable price. It is quite fast for a budget model, at 16 pages per minute for text and around 15 pages per minute for graphics prints. It also has excellent text print quality. Text is very sharp, dark, and readable at small font sizes. In fact, it offers some of the best text print quality available at its price point. Graphics quality, however, is less impressive. Graphics have a number of visible issues, from banding to fuzziness. This may not be much of an issue for most users, but is certainly a consideration. There are multiple models available, such as the ML-2010, ML-2510, ML-2510/XAA, and ML-2510/XAX, each having different features and capacities.
The design of the ML-2010 is very compact. The unit measures 9 inches by 14 inches by 18 inches (HWD) and weighs only 12.8 pounds. Its small size and weight make it perfect for home office users, college students, and anyone who has a small space and wishes to be able to transport the machine occasionally. Paper capacity is very limited, probably a tradeoff for its affordable price and compact size. The unit can hold 150 sheets in the input tray, and only 50 sheets in the output tray. The paper capacity can not be expanded with optional attachments.
The machine ships with a "starter" Samsung ML-2010 toner cartridge with a capacity of 1,000 pages, while the standard laser toner cartridge holds 3,000 pages worth of ink. This represents more cost for the user, as the starter printer toner cartridge will likely need to be replaced early in the life of the unit, nullifying some of the affordable upfront price.
Overall, the Samsung ML-2010 is a solid personal printer with good speeds and good text quality. Buyers need to consider whether its small capacity and lack of upgradeability will suit their needs.
