Samsung launches very small, very quick laser printer

Samsung Electronics has launched what it claims is the world’s smallest monochrome laser printer.

The ML-1665 is targeted at small businesses or home offices, students and households (so that’s everyone then) and gives users a simple printing experience through the number of easy to use one-touch features.
This includes the Samsung Print Screen button, which lets users print exactly what they see on their PC screen.  The printer is also compatible with Samsung’s AnyWeb Print software, which lets users select, drag and drop only the information they need from web pages into a new page on their PC screen. They can then save or print what they need and avoid wasting time or resources such as paper and toner.

Samsung’s new Soft Power button makes it easy to switch the printer off when not in use, rather than leaving it in sleep mode. This, Samsung claims, can help save as much as 9.55 watts per hour . Over a year, this equates to the same amount of energy as leaving a light on for over 18 days.

Additionally the device has print speeds of up to 16 pages-per-minute (ppm) and a first page out time of less than 8.5 seconds. There is also a cover on the output tray to keep noise levels down.

Graham Long, Vice President of IT, UK and Ireland, Samsung Electronics, said: “Samsung understands that consumers don’t want to have to worry about working out how to use their new devices.

“With the new printers, we have incorporated a wide range of features in a stylish and compact device to make printing simple and convenient.”
