4.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the printer, 2 stars for the unbelievably expensive toner refills, July 17, 2012
This review is from: Samsung ML-2165W Wireless Monochrome Printer (Office Product)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I love this printer. If you're looking for a no-nonsense, small, easy to use wireless laser printer, this is a very good option. The print quality is very good - no smudges, no lines, no defects in the text.

The printer is a little slower than I expected, but tolerable. I printed 20 pages in a few minutes, which wasn't bad.

Setting up the wireless was pretty straightforward. I'm using Windows 7 and plugged it directly into my computer. I installed the drivers, and it took me through the setup. It connected to my wireless network and voila - instant printing from all computers in the house. I've heard some people having issues using older versions of Windows, but I have no experience with that.

My main complaint is the cost of the toner refills. As with all printers these days, they're priced dirt cheap so you can buy expensive ink/toner refills. Sadly, this printer is no exception. The printer costs $60, and the toner refills also cost $60. This is SO annoying, and would definitely make me think twice about buying this printer. The cartridge is labeled to print 1500 pages, so I guess it all depends on how often you print.

Overall, great, no-nonsense printer with unreasonably expensive toner refills.

The printer and Toner replacement may both cost $60 but I would bet that the original toner that came with the printer was filled only to 30-40% capacity.

There's a toner refill kit right here on Amazon for $14.95 w/the chip, and I've seen them as low as $12 but don't know if those include the chip. Complete replacement cartridges are going for under $30.
