With the push of a button, the sophisticated ML-1630 monochrome laser printer goes from Sleep Mode to printing in less than 15 seconds. Printing at 16 to 17 pages per minute means you won't waste valuable time waiting for lengthy printing jobs again. The printer also prints at a crisp 1200 X 600 dpi resolution and has 8 MB of memory. And weighing in at a mere 14.1 pounds, the ML-1630 is not only sleek and functional, but highly portable as well.
Conserve Valuable Desktop Space
Easy on the eyes with its chic black finish and cool sapphire LED lights, the ML-1630 is a polished centerpiece for any desktop. It measures a compact 13.1-by-14.8-by-4.7-inches, so it frees up valuable desk space without sacrificing efficiency. The highly evolved design of this Samsung laser printer turns on to full functionality with the gentle touch of the printer's touch-sensor buttons, and the printer features a 100-sheet, semi-automatic paper tray and an easy-to-access toner compartment.

Very low profile and paper comes out the front so you can stack items on top of it during use.
Samsung doesn't offer a higher capacity toner cartridge but you can get one from checksnet that prints more pages and can be used for making checks.
Excellent print quality & quietest printer I've ever owned.
The ML-1630 is just stunning for a monochrome laser printer under $200. The look is unique, but as the title says, the quality is what you would expect from a home laser printer.
The characters are crisp and the graphics are perfect (2 settings, standard and above). It is very quiet, plug-and-play, can be shared without any issue on a local windows network. You get one year warranty which can be extended by another 3 months once you register your product online.
The only issue we got was with the paper. We were using recycled paper (which is quite thin) and sometimes the paper would be a little wrinkled. By switching to normal paper (Stapples), the problem went away.
Only mediocre for printing graphic images (such as coins) that are colored. The change to gray-scale comes out a little dark.
Pros: Very small foot-print, very good looking printer, low cost per page.
Cons: Color graphics come out dark when converted to gray-scale.
It's a quick 5-minute setup, with the only thing you really have to do to the printer is slip in the printer cartridge. Then you turn it on, connect it to your computer, and install the software from the CD.
I installed it on a Vista laptop, everything worked great, then shared that printer on my home network. I wirelessly connected to that shared printer from a remote Windows7 laptop, and it installed the printer drivers and printed easily. I was actually quite surprised it all worked, to be honest.
The printer is quiet and prints documents perfectly. As other commenters mention, it doesn't hold a ream of paper, but for my home office, it's more than I print in a week. It looks fantastic, too.
The only thing missing is built-in wireless, but I'll make do.
Samsung authorized another repair and a different shop had the printer for about six weeks. The repair shop owner said that Samsung was horrible to get parts and repair authorization from, and pays starvation wages for his labor. When the printer was returned from shop number 2, guess what?! It STILL didn't work... same exact problem.
At the end of my rope, Samsung agreed to replace the printer, but wouldn't guarantee that I would get another ML1630... they would just ship whatever they had in stock! I got a new 1630, and it seems to work ok. But here is the rub - my warranty on my replacement printer is SHORTER than on my original lemon. When I called Samsung, I got zero satisfaction on this issue. I wrote the President of Samsung Electronics USA about a month ago about this and so far, not even a return call or contact of any kind. I have a long memory for lousy customer service and it will be a cold day in a very warm destination before I buy any Samsung product again.
The printer looks sleek. It is a work of art. But the print quality is average. It's not especially fast, but not a turtle, either. Just average. The paper tray is tiny - much smaller than any personal printer I have owned. Samsung requires a fairly large printer driver program installation, which works fine under Windows 7, but it does suck up system resources.
At first all went well. As a printer it is excellent. Great print quality, and quiet.
However, it does not work well with Airport ever since I upgraded my OS to 10.5. It will do one print job, then freeze. I have to reset Airport for each and every print job. This is a real pain when I am working wirelessly, which is most of the time.
It still works fine if plugged directly into my MacBook Pro via USB.
Wireless is a futile effort. I've read numerous blogs on the problem, and solutions are temporary at best.
If you plan to use this printer plugged directly into your computer, then it is a good buy. If you plan to use wireless with a PC, I have heard that works but can't confirm. But don't buy if you plan to use wirelessly with a Mac.
One other minor inconvenience: the paper tray is rather small, and holds about 50 sheets. If you print lots of large jobs, I'd consider another printer.
