Samsung ML-1640 Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

A truly entry level device with limited printing capability, producing good quality and fast prints.

Samsung ML-1640 is an entry level laser printer, with a maximum resolution of 1200 x 600 dpi, and prints speed of up to 16 ppm. The first copy comes in less than 10 seconds and the quality of printouts is average. The Samsung ML-1640 Toner Cartridges come with a life of about 1500 prints and the drum having a 10000 page life. The printer is not very compact and is more high than most printers in similar range. The 150 page capacity input tray is not covered and is thus prone to dust, etc. The 8 mb RAM is standard and not expandable, but it does help in fast first copy timing. Connectivity is only through USB 2.0. The monthly duty cycle of 500 pages and a smaller introductory Samsung ML-1640 Toner Cartridges with a 700 page life, indicates its intentions to target home and small offices.

The printer supports duplex printing and is easy to use. The cartridges have to installed carefully and properly, else it will end up showing - no cartridge found - regularly. The bundled drivers and diagnostics software are very useful and help in functions like watermark printing, overlays and more.

  • Fast prints
  • 8 MB RAM
  • USB connectivity
  • Good quality of prints in graphics and grayscale
  • Dust protection is absent
  • Less features compared to other competitors at similar price

This is an entry level laser printer and it makes its intentions very clear in its build and print quality and feature list. It is good for small offices and home use, but with a small duty cycle and lack of connectivity options, it won't be good for medium sized offices.
