The Samsung ML-2551N is a monochrome laser printer for the small or medium office environment. Its large paper capacity and fast speeds, as well as built-in ethernet networking, make it a good choice for a high-volume small office. For small offices with very low printing needs, consider a model like the Samsung ML-2515, which uses Samsung ML-2010D3 toner.
Samsung didn't try to make the ML-2551N a compact laser printer, which would often mean skimping on things like paper capacity and speed, but the printer still manages to stay fairly small. It measures 12.8 inches by 15.2 inches by 17.2 inches (HWD) and weighs only 29.8 pounds, so it still takes up a relatively small footprint, and can be moved by one or two people easily.
Paper capacity is very generous for the price, with 500 sheets in the main tray, and 100 sheets in its multipurpose tray. The printer includes a USB 2.0 port as well as an ethernet port for sharing it across a network of users. It also has the muscle to handle large printing jobs without slowdowns, with its 266 mhz processor and 32 MB of RAM. For users who routinely do very graphics-heavy printing, the memory can be upgraded to a maximum of 160 MB.
Samsung ML-2551N toner cartridges have a capacity of 5,000 pages, and are very affordably-priced, resulting in a low cost per page. Using third-party compatible printer cartridges instead of the more expensive OEM Samsung ML-2551N toner cartridges can save even more money. The printer also has a toner save mode for reducing the amount of laser toner used per page. If color printing is desired, a model that uses Lexmark C5240MH toner may be a better choice.
Print speed is impressive for the ML-2551N's price, at up to 24 pages per minute, with a first page out time of less than 12 seconds. Print quality is excellent, as the printer uses a 1200 dpi printing engine to produce sharp, detailed prints.
Overall, the ML-2551N is ideal for a high-volume small office environment that needs a networked printer. These same features can be found in the Dell 310-4133 toner printer, though its speeds are a little slower. Overall, the quality and speed of the ML-2551N are more impressive for the price than a lot of the competition.
