FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Samsung ML-1865W Monochrome Laser Printer with 1200 x 1200dpi Resolution, Black for $56.00 at Buy.com


This is an excellent price for any laser printer.  I sold some Samsung lasers when I had my computer business and they worked just fine.  This price is excellent but keep in mind what you are getting.   It will give great print quality but no color.  The toner cartridge is $59 at buy.com and $63.95 at Staples and yields 1500 pages.   A typical black ink cartridge for a typical inkjet printer yields 400 pages  for a $20.00 cartridge.   Do the math, roughly $80.00 for 1600 pages  vs. $60 for 1500 pages.  Keep in mind that page yield is often considered 5% coverage which is a bit ludicrous.   So in spite of the fact that a laser printer at $56 is a crazy price it may not be a good fit for you.   I did not find any compatible toner cartridges for the Samsung (there may be some, I just didn’t find one.) and I use compatible cartridges for my inkjet printer that cut the ink cost by 50%.   This Samsung is a decent deal but remember ALL the printer vendors are basing there sales model on razor and razor blades.  Give you the printer and soak you on the ink!
