Picture this, you are a university student, you have worked on your 500 page thesis to graduate from your doctorate program at Harvard and all you need to do is print it out. You have two options, the inkjet that prints at about 4ppm and which would print your document in about 2 hours and run out of ink half way through, or you could upgrade to the latest technology in printing with the laser printer and have the same document done in half an hour with sharper text and no delays other than a paper reload after 270 sheets. I don't know, but I think the choice is pretty clear.
Today I will be reviewing a sample from Samsung which will increase your printing efficiency along with the added bonus of having the sharpest text in the industry. I know, you will be saying "Hey! I can buy an inkjet for practically nothing and it can print colour!". Well, true, you can, but wait until you replace your cartridges a couple times (Huge Cost!), you will wish that you spent a little extra money on a Laser printer and face it, how much colour printing do you really do unless you are a graphics artist. I myself, "was" a inkjet printer user. But, with my first true introduction to laser printing, I have never looked back.

I need a better black and white printer, what would this make and model give me feature wise...
- 15PPM (Fast!)
- 600*600DPI (Face it, it's only black and white)
- 8MB (100 Pin Type SDRAM)
- Operational Systems:Window, Linux, Mac
- 270 sheet cassette feeder
- Toner Capacity: 6,000 pages at 5% coverage (Try to get that out of a tiny ink cartridge)
Ok, the only way to go now is to show you actually what you get physically when you buy this printer..
As I have found with all Samsung products, they are packaged very well.
You also receive the powercord, the driver CD, a warranty card, a real handy installation guide (I actually used this one) and a toner cartridge.
