The Samsung ML-3470 is a monochrome laser printer designed for small to medium office environment. Its duplexing and toner saving features add up to one of the most economical laser printers on the market, and its speed and print quality only sweeten the deal.
The design of the ML-3470 is simple and direct. Its no-frills, boxy design is similar to its feature set. While the printer offers mainly standard features, it offers fast speeds and great print quality, in a very affordable package.
The ML-3470 is a very economical printer, and can be made even more economical with the use of some its features. First, the printer includes a "Toner Save" feature, which is easily accessible from the front panel button designated for this. When invoked, the printer uses less Samsung toner per page. While there is some loss in quality, it is mostly negligible, and quite good enough for day-to-day printing. Second, the printer features duplexing as a standard feature. Duplexing allows users to print on both sides of the page automatically. This allows for significant savings in paper costs. Using duplexing can greatly reduce paper costs, and therefore operating costs, over the lifetime of the printer.
While the standard toner cartridges have a capacity of 4,100 pages, high-yield cartridges are available with a capacity of 10,100 pages. Though the upfront cost of the high-yield cartridges is more, the per-page costs are much lower. By combining the high-yield cartridge savings with the toner save mode and duplexing, the ML-3470 can be one of the most economical printers available.
Print speed is very fast at around 33 pages per minute. It is worth noting that duplexing and the toner save feature may affect the printer's speed. Print quality is excellent, with great text quality and average graphics quality.
Overall, the Samsung ML-3470 offers all the necessary features combined with some nice cost-saving options. Its speed and print quality are also impressive.
