Tired of paying extra for colour that you simply just don’t want? Samsung’s ML-2851ND monochrome laser printer is a good solution for any office where colour has become a costly burden.

When Samsung said that this printer was fast they sure weren’t lying – it has a lightning quick print speed of 20 pages per minute, with excellent print quality to boot.

One of the features of the ML-2851 that we appreciated was the TonerSave mode which can extend cartridge life by up to 40%, hardly affecting the quality output. Another thing that impressed us was its better than usual paper handling, with built-in duplexing capabilities – meaning double sided printing without you having to lift a finger changing paper, and a standard input of 250 sheets.

The ML-2851ND is easy to set up, either via USB or connected to the server and accessed across a wired network (sorry, no Wi-Fi). The Samsung ML-2581ND is available from Computer Corporation at R1959 on 08616-08616.

PROS
Incredibly easy to set up and an excellent duty cycle.
CONS
No wireless connection.
