A 250-page paper input tray is accompanied by a single-sheet manual bypass feeder and a 50-page output tray. The printer accepts plain paper, envelopes, labels, and transparency media, as well as media weights ranging from 16 to 24 lbs bond via the tray and 16 to 43 lbs bond via the manual feeder.

USB and parallel ports allow you to easily connect the ML-1740 to your host computer. The 66 MHz processor combines with 8 MB of memory to handle small to medium size print loads, and the 15,000-page maximum monthly duty cycle provides reliability for home and office applications.

Overall this a great printer with excellent print quality.
If everything I said seems too good to be true, then it is because I am really happy about the choice I made.
For less than five dollars you can buy a toner refill kit which replaces a 70-80 dollar toner cartridge.

ML-1740 is an excellent printer for use with a single PC at home or small business.

1. Excellent print quality, much better than any inkjet would.
2. Drum and toner are a single unit. So there are no drum replacement costs unlike Minolta 1350W or Brother laser printers.
3. Toner/drum costs are very low, can be refilled at home easily 2-3 times (just pull out the round black cap & pour in the black powder).
4. Fast print speeds, again much more than inkjets.
5. Small, decent looking and light weight.
6. Has an internal paper tray (250 pages) like a real laser.
7. Toner saver mode for times when you don't need the best quality.
8. Low printer price after rebate and deals at local stores.

1. It makes a lot of noise, more than an inkjet. More than HP 1012 (its also bigger than 1012).
2. The included toner is a starter one. (1000 pages instead of 3000 on a standard one)
3. Paper curls more than one would like.
4. Takes 30 secs to come out of sleep mode.
5. Seems to consume a lot of power, house lights flicker when printer turns on (but not as bad as Minolta).
6. Refilled toner starts to leak after about 2 refills (probably because of expsoure to light?).

Overall this a great printer with excellent print quality. Dump your inkjet and get this laser now!

I needed to replace my ancient basic Brother laser printer (which at the time many years ago, cost over $500 as I recall).

Samsung had the reputation of relatively low-quality in the past, though they have been more committed to quality these last few years. I overcame my initial "brand aversion" after reading a few good reviews here and elsewhere.

So far, I've haven't printed very much (as expected) but I did just print out a 131-page instruction manual on some cheap grocery-store brand paper stock without a hitch.

Not particularly quiet, but that is not a concern of mine.

A couple nice features that I'll probably never use include being able to print a "watermark" such as "Sample" or "Confidential" on the first or all pages, rotating the print, and shrinking to fit the page.

One option I recommend is the "toner saver mode", accessible from the interface or a button on the printer. Although you get a "starter" toner cartridge, replacements go for about $79, though re-charged ones might be available for less.

I scavenged a USB cord from my scanner, and hooked it up that way although there is a parallel port option. You need your own cable in either case.

My present inkjet printer is great for small jobs and color printing, but it lacks the speed that I need when printing lots of text. I printed a 265 page document, (which took about 40 minutes) and went to the copy center to make three more. When they told me how much it would cost, I realized that for the price of three copies, I could just go and buy my own personal laser printer. I did some comparative shopping and ended up with the economy minded Samsung ML 1740 laser printer. Here are my first impressions (no pun intended) of this printer.

The unit comes packaged with toner, the printer itself, manuals, CD installation disk, power cord, but no USB cable. You'll have to provide that yourself. The printer is a very compact unit and is about the size of a small microwave oven. The whole body of the printer is made of plastic, rather fragile looking, but nice. Setup took less than twenty minutes and is simple as falling off a long. After installing the necessary software, and connecting the USB cable from the printer to my computer, I printed out a test page which was very sharp and clear. The printer is easy to load with paper and has a 250 page capacity. Very nice. Paper exit trays are from the top of the printer or from the rear exit. You can choose which exit the paper comes out of. Generally speaking, the top exit is good for general printing, and the rear exit is for printing envelopes or thicker paper stock. The rear paper exit is 'straight through' compared to the top exit which makes the paper do a 'U-turn' before coming out.

The printer is very user friendly and has great software.(Note: From reports, this printer does not seem to work with Macs.) I was able to print up that 265 page document without a hitch. There is a toner saver button on the top of the printer.

I got this printer for home use after years of using super-fancy laser printers at my office. (...) the printer is pretty amazing: excellent text quality, good graphics, and extremely fast printing (even at 600dpi). I would not use this printer to print all my family pictures on it, but for any graphics you'd come across it will do fine.

Setting it up was trivial with Win98 and XP. If you use linux, the setup utility will blow you away: it provides all the functionality and controls of the windows driver. It literally took about 2 minutes to set up under Mandrake 9.2 with CUPS (using the USB port). Go Samsung, go Linux!
I've read reviews complaining about the noise level of the printer... I find it pretty normal, nothing to worry about.
I am not sure how well it will last since I've only had it for a few hours, but again from other reviews it seems there are no major problems.
I've set mine to use the "toner save" feature and I can't see any degradation in the quality of the printouts.
Anyway. Get this printer and you won't be sorry!
