Though its NFC features get top billing, the Samsung Xpress SL-M2020 laser printer is even more impressive for its straightforward design, solid speeds, and low purchase price. It can print up to 20 pages per minute, supports a 1200 dpi print resolution, and provides numerous options for saving on Samsung SL-M2020 printer toner, included the Easy Eco Driver feature.
In contrast to the similar SL-M2020w or SL-M2020w/xaa model which includes Wi-Fi, the SL-M2020 includes only a standard USB port, so it is designed more for personal printing than for a shared office environment. Of course, the NFC (near-field communications) features makes for simple printing from a supported mobile device, but the majority of users might not be that compelled by this addition.
The design of the unit is very compact, with a small footprint of just 8.5x7 inches that is perfect for home users. It also weighs only 8.7 pounds, even with the Xpress SL-M2020 toner supply installed. The Easy Printer Manager also helps users get the most out of the different print options without confusing menus and settings with cryptic names. Users can even select profiles for the different tasks they want to accomplish.
Replacement toners are pretty affordable, but capacities are limited. Users can help get more use from each Samsung SL-M2020 toner cartridge by using the Easy Eco Driver, which helps reduce unwanted elements before printing. With each Xpress SL-M2020 toner cartridge providing only 1,000 pages, however, it is recommended for light-duty use.
The speed and output quality of the SL-M2020 are on par for the price, and its design is nicely compact for home use. Lack of networking features is a bit of a disappointment, which may lead some buyers to choose the upgraded model with wireless support. The low cost per page of Samsung SL-M2020 toner does make it very appealing.
