What I want:
- Laser Printer
- Robust and reliable (I want this thing to last at *least* 5-10 years)
- Monochrome (B&W)
- Maximum toner price of about $100/6000pages
- Compatible with Windows and Linux
- High resolution (I'd like to have 1200dpi x 1200dpi)
So. . . at this point, I'm leaning towards a Samsung ML-1650 printer. It appears to have all of the features that I want, and at a pretty good price. It's actually intended as a workgroup level laser printer, but I've found a place or two that are carrying it at a price comparable to most "personal" laser printers (about $255). It's intended use being workgroup oriented, and the fact that it's duty cycle is 40k pages/month (which is prolly more than I'll put through it in it's life) gives me hope that it will last for a lot of years.
Does anyone have any experience with Samsung printers, in particular this model? Anyone have any comments or suggestions?
