With two models to choose from, the Samsung ProXpress M3870 multifunction laser printer series offers solid output speed at up to 38 pages per minute, but lets users choose the features they need most. An Eco button and excellent driver software make it easy to save on Samsung M3870 printer toner, and it offers a few upgrade options for the office that expects growth in the future.
The design of the M3870 is fairly compact, especially given its printing, scanning, copying, and optional faxing capabilities. It measures 16.3x16.6x17.7 inches, and its weight of 33.4 pounds actually includes the ProXpress M3870 toner supply as well. Users can opt for the M3870ND model with networking and duplexing features, or the M3870FW model that also adds faxing and wireless networking support. Even if faxing isn't an important feature, many buyers may decide the wireless support is worth the upgrade.
Speaking of upgrades, the unit starts with a standard paper tray that holds 250 sheets, and also includes a 50-sheet multipurpose tray. Adding a second tray can boost the total capacity to 820 sheets, however, helping it to support larger workloads without the need for constant reloads.
The The maximum print resolution of 1200 dpi results in very sharp print quality. This extends from text to graphics, and the first page out time is still only around 6.5 seconds. The copy resolution trims it down to 600 dpi, but still offers sharp copies.
Replacing toners is a quick and easy process, and two sizes of Samsung M3870 toner cartridges are available. The standard ProXpress M3870 toner cartridge has a yield of 3,000 pages, while a high-capacity version can net around 5,000 pages. Compatible Samsung M3870 toner is available from third-party sellers at lower prices than OEM supplies.
The Samsung M3870 is able to handle a wide range of office tasks from printing and copying to scanning and faxing, all without a high price tag. While it can't handle large workloads, it will be a nice fit for a smaller office on a budget.
