The Samsung ML-2552W is a monochrome laser printer designed for the small or medium office environment. It has wireless networking built in, solid paper capacity, and fast print speeds to offer. Lack of expandability might be an issue for the growing office. For even smaller offices or homes consider something like the HP 3100, which features Samsung CLP-C660B toner.
Not many laser printers ship with wireless networking built in, though many offer it as an upgrade option. The Samsung ML-2552W (also known as the Samsung ML-2552) includes 802.11b wireless networking out of the box, and it is much cheaper as a built-in feature than an option. Users wondering if the 802.11b is outdated now that 802.11g and 802.11n are becoming standard should note that for printing tasks, 802.11b is more than fast enough, and anything else would be overkill. An ethernet port is also built in for connected to a wired network. The printer supports Windows, Mac, and Linux systems.
Paper capacity is very large for the price, with 500 sheets in the printer's main tray, and up to 100 sheets in the multipurpose tray, depending on media size and type. A wide variety of media types are supported, including transparencies, labels, envelopes, and plain paper. Sizes up to A4 are supported.
Samsung ML-2552W toner cartridges have a capacity of 10,000 pages, which can be pushed even further with the printer's toner save mode, which reduces the amount of laser toner used per page. The Samsung ML-2552W toner cartridges are easy to access and to replace. Toner cartridges are very affordably-priced with a lower cost per page then competing toner such as the Dell 310-5807 toner, making the Samsung ML-2552W an economical choice in the long run.
Print speed is quite fast, at up to 25 pages per minute, with a first page out time of 12 seconds. Print quality is excellent for both text and graphics, utilizing a 1200 dpi printing engine. For those who desire color graphics, the Samsung CLP-660 might be a better choice, featuring Samsung CLP-C660B toner.
Overall, the Samsung ML-2552W is a great choice for the small or medium office environment, especially one with wireless networking needs. Its paper capacity, quality, and speed add up to a solid laser printer.
