For buyers who need not only a fast monochrome laser printer but also a scanner, copier, and fax machine, the Samsung SL-M3870FW is a good fit, without taking up too much of a footprint. It can print up to 38 pages per minute, though not all buyers will like its top-heavy design aesthetic.
In addition to its main functions, the SL-M3870FW also has a few extras, such as duplexing and wireless support. With automatic duplexing enabled, users could potentially reduce their paper usage by as much as 50%. Wireless support makes it easy to connect to an existing Wi-Fi network, and gives users more freedom in where they can place the machine.
Support for Google Cloud Print is a welcome feature that makes remote printing very easy. Integration with the Samsung Mobile Print App is also impressive, as it works with iOS and Android devices while requiring virtually no setup.
Output quality is very sharp, at a resolution of 1200 dpi using Samsung SL-M3870FW printer toner. The paper handling is also very impressive, with a 250-sheet paper tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray. Upgrades can bring it up to a total of 820 sheets of input. The automatic document feeder holds up to 50 sheets at once, but its placement above the printing unit tends to look a bit awkward.
Users will replace toners less often by using the Eco mode, and they also have a choice of high-yield Samsung SL-M3870FW toner cartridges instead of the standard replacements. The largest Samsung SL-M3870FW toner cartridges can provide up to 10,000 pages of output, which will keep the cost per page significantly low.
The SL-M3870FW has the kind of speed and output quality that all offices need, but it is still tailored to small office spaces and smaller budgets. Savings on Samsung SL-M3870FW toner will make it very economical, and its duplexing, wireless support, and mobile printing features are icing on the cake.
