SAMSUNG ML-1710/1750 INTRODUCTION
Whether you are new computer user, a business professional, a home user or an performance enthusiast, everyone needs to print a document at one time or another. If you print a hundred documents a day or one a month, inkjet printers are a complete pain in the butt. If you use the printer all the time, you will run out of ink and have to pay an arm and a leg to get a replacement cartridge. On the other hand, if you use the printer very infrequently, your ink cartridge will turn into a hard, dried out useless fossil which like the first scenario, will cost you an arm and a leg to replace. With all the hassles, people will still use the excuse "Laser Printers are too expensive" which when you add it up, is just not true. In most cases today, inkjet refill cartridges are are slightly less expensive then the actual printer itself which is ridiculous. Think about it, if inkjet printers were cost effective, wouldn't businesses use them? They don't because laser printers cost less per page printed, period. Seeing the price reductions on printers using laser technology lately, no wonder they are beginning to out sell the inferior technology packed into cheap inkjet products. If you are not into color printing and would like a cost effective solution to your inkjet nightmare, today I will be reviewing two of Samsung's latest redesigned monochrome laser printers, the ML-1710 and the slightly higher end ML-1750. Did they improve their laser printer line over the ML-14XX line in which I reviewed one HERE? In a few pages and photos, you will have your answer.
