The Samsung ML-5010 laser printer is also referred to as the ML-5010ND for its networking and duplexing features, and it is worth highlighting them, especially at such an affordable price point. Even better is its fast speed of up to 48 pages per minute, but even with high page yields, the cost of Samsung ML-5010 printer toner can be a little steep.
The ML-5010 includes a feeding system designed to reduce paper jams, and it can hold up to 520 sheets in the main tray as well as 100 sheets in the multi-purpose tray. With the ability to use plain paper, cardstock, labels, envelopes, and more, users can put the multi-purpose tray to good use without having to unload the main tray.
Connection options include both an ethernet port and a USB port, and a front and rear USB host port are included for connecting storage media for direct printing. An Eco mode can be enabled, which can save paper by printing in duplex, or enabling the Toner Save model to reduce the usage of Samsung ML-5010 toner for each page. These options can be configured by the user for the best balance of quality and cost savings.
With so much going for it, the unit's costly toners are the main sticking point. Standard Samsung ML-5010 toner cartridges come in 7,000-page capacities, with 15,000 and 20,000-page supplies available as well. Even with the higher yields, however, the cost per page of Samsung ML-5010 toner cartridges is still higher than many competing models, making them a better value.
The ML-5010 includes a lot of features for the price, and its speeds are very impressive. Sadly, it is let down by expensive consumables that will make it costly to operate over the long run.
