Bought a new printer today – a Samsung ML-1740, (very) cheap laser printer. I was a bit stunned at the prices you can pay for a laser printer today…this thing cost CAN$130, which is crazy. Doesn’t seem like so long ago a ‘cheap’ laser was £399. It seems to do exactly what it says on the tin – it’s small, neat, quiet, pumps out perfectly good looking pages nice and quick, and works absolutely no fuss with Linux (just pick the ML-1710 driver). Can’t go wrong with this thing if you want no-fuss black and white on a budget.

    I have a Samsung ML-1710. I _love_ the performance I get from this beast, especially since the price was nice too.

    Now, woe is me, I have to change the toner cartridge… Let’s see how much that costs.
