First Look: Samsung SL-M2020W Printer review: A bite-sized monochrome laser with NFC connectivity

1:27 /

The $130 Samsung SL-M2020W printer bundles all the features and quality control we'd expect out of a Samsung device and even sweetens the pot with NFC connectivity and an impressive list of drive options embedded in the software.

[MUSIC] Hey, it's Justin. This is the first look at the Samsung SL-M2020W. So this is a mono-laser printer which means it only prints in black toner. That said, it's a hundred and thirty bucks and you can actually get it for half of that right now which makes it a great deal if you want a light duty printer that's really easy to set up. You can connect a computer, tablet or smart phone to the printer using either the USB cable provided, through a wireless connection partnered with a wi-fi router, or by tapping an NFC enabled phone to the top panel for mobile printer. Now the desktop software you'll need to access the driver settings is on the disk included in the packaging. And it's also available online, if your computer doesn't have an optical disk drive. That gives you the printer manager software and that monitors every job to keep track of your toner. It's also really easy to print from an iOS or an Android device, using the Samsung Mobile Print app. Samsung even takes the extra software install out of it, and puts a QR code on the instructions, that come with the box. So don't forget that this is a mono printer, so don't expect much from the print quality. And as long as you have reasonable expectations there, you'll be satisfied with this printer's speed, output, and extra features. For more on that stuff you can check out the full review on cnet.com. Thanks for watching. This is the Samsung M2020W mono laser printer.
