Samsung SLM2825DW black and white Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
We strive to keep a similar composition and set of data points between all reviews. We do this to give you an overview of the differences between printers on the market.
Before purchasing any printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The SLM2825DW is a black and white laser printer from Samsung, offering good quality black and white output. It performs well providing quality print output with decent speeds and lots of useful features
With print speeds of up to twenty-eight pages per minute (when printing text on plain office paper) and the ability to print on pages up to A4 in size , this printer is a great performer.
As this is a standard printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.
The Samsung SLM2825DW sports a touch screen panel for easily printing and adjusting print settings and performing other useful tasks.
The SLM2825DW has good mono printing, with a print resolution of 1200 x 1200 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.
Offering A4 print speeds of up to 28 pages per minute, this printer is excellent for everyday printing. Although it will struggle to complete medium-large print jobs in a reasonable timeframe. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 8.5 seconds meaning short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.
Extra print features for this device include: Envelope printing
The SLM2825DW comes ready to connect to a computer network. Allowing multiple users and devices to share this printer between them.. This printer comes with an ethernet port as standard.
