Samsung ML-2250 review: Samsung ML-2250

A silver lining laces our only grumble about the ML-2250's packaging. The printer includes a half-size starter cartridge, but its 5,000-page life expectancy won't force you to shop for a refill right away. And we're singing about the cheap toner cost: a full 10,000-page replacement cartridge runs $100, or 1 cent per page.

Samsung covers the ML-2250 with a one-year depot warranty, which you can extend for a yet-undetermined cost. Free, toll-free tech support is good for the life of the printer, available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.
