Samsung ML-2510 Printer Review
The Samsung ML-2510 is a toner cartridge-based laser printer is intended for personal use, but could work in small workgroups. The compact design, fast speeds, and great print quality make it an excellent option for low to mid volume needs in small spaces.
Affordable and compact personal toners are fairly common in the office equipment industry. However, a number of these models sacrifice printing speed and printing quality in order to achieve compact sizes and affordable prices. The ML-2510 laser printer does not sacrifice speed or quality, as it excels in both departments.
The unit is extremely compact in its design, with a 14x12x10 inch frame. It will fit comfortably in the tightest spaces, on any desktop or table. The unit weighs less than 15 pounds, so moving it from one spot to another will be a one-person job. The two other configurations that are upgrades to the base model are the ML-2510XAA, which has expandable paper options and the ML-2510XAX, which has built-in finishing capabilities.
Print speed is very fast for the price. Rivaling higher priced machines on the market, the output rate is about 25 pages per minute. Print quality is excellent, especially for text, which is crisp, clean and very readable, regardless of font size. The unit is conducive with most operating systems and offers a USB connection. An ethernet interface is not provided, but adapters and upgrades are available.
This unit does not sacrifice in print speed or quality, but it does make a few sacrifices to achieve its lower price. A starter Samsung ML-2510 toner cartridge that can yield about 1,000 pages, but no USB cord is provided upon purchase. The standard laser toner cartridge has a capacity of 3,000 pages. Though the mediocre supplies in the box when purchased can be disappointing, it can be made up for with quality.
Overall, the Samsung ML-2510 serves as a solid personal laser. The overall speed and quality of the Samsung toner, will be more than sufficient but is still affordable and compact.
