The Samsung Xpress M2885 multifunction laser printer combines features for the small office with some convenient extras like mobile printing and even NFC (near field communications). It can copy, print, scan, and fax, with maximum speeds of up to 29 pages per minute, though Samsung M2885 printer toner supplies can be a little pricey to replace.
The unit goes by the alternate names of SL-M2885 or M2885FW, the latter of which points out its faxing and wireless features. Users can easily set up and connect the machine via Wi-Fi, freeing it from the constraints of location within the office, as it doesn't rely on ethernet cables. Mobile printing support includes Apple's AirPrint and Google Cloud Print, but its NFC feature means that users can even tap their device to the machine for easy printing.
For a machine with so many solid features, it still doesn't consume a lot of space. It measures 14.4x15.8x14.3 inches and weighs less than 25 pounds, even when the Xpress M2885 toner supply is in place. This makes it a good compromise for the small office that needs quick performance and versatile features without a lot of space to spare. The control panel is a bit sparse, with only a small LCD screen, and the input paper capacity of 250 sheets could be a limiting factor for some office users.
Replacing toners is simple, and users have a choice of two capacities of Samsung M2885 toner cartridges. The high-capacity Xpress M2885 toner cartridge has a yield of around 3,000 pages, which makes for a fairly good cost per page. Buyers who want to trim costs even more should consider compatible Samsung M2885 toner supplies, which are less expensive than OEM versions.
The M2885 may not have the fast speeds of more expensive office machines, or as many advanced features, but it is a good middle ground of affordability and functionality. Small office users will appreciate its compact design, and it is affordable enough even for home use.
