The elegantly simple Samsung ML-2165W monochrome laser printer gives you laser-sharp text for only $150. It's also quite compact, measuring a mere 13 inches wide by 8.5 inches deep by 7 inches high, so it's suitable for small work areas. Extra features are scant, and toner is pricey at about 4 cents per page; but for low-volume, basic printing, it's worth a look. Setting up the ML-2165W is simplicity itself. Plug in the power cord, attach the small swiveling output tray to the top of the unit, and press the WPS button (for Wi-Fi Protected Setup). That's all there is to it--assuming you have a WPS-capable router. If you don't, you'll have to attach the printer to your computer via USB to set up the Wi-Fi--or use it as a USB-attached unit. Controls are minimal. The aforementioned WPS button also pulls duty as the Continue/Print button; and if you hold it down for 15 seconds, it summons a status report. Beyond that, you get only the printer and toner status lights, and the on/off button. The ML-2165W's printer driver, though equally basic, is also elegant and nicely organized. Samsung doesn't offer any layout options, but it does provide manual duplexing support on the PC side. Unfortunately, manual duplexing isn't available on the Mac.
If you need a personal mono laser to sit on your desk, and don't want to give up a lot of desktop real estate for it, the Samsung ML-2165W ($130 street) is a tempting choice. It offers Wi-Fi, suitable paper capacity for a personal printer, reasonably high-quality text and graphics, and acceptable, if somewhat slow, speed. Samsung also offers free apps to let you print from an Android, iOS, or Windows 7 device by way of a Wi-Fi access point. (It also plans to add direct Wi-Fi printing with a firmware upgrade later this year). Unfortunately, the printer also has a relatively high running cost, which limits its appeal if you print a lot of pages. The ML-2165W's most striking feature by far is its small size. It may be the smallest laser printer that's ever showed up at PC Labs, at just 7.0 by 13.0 by 8.5-inches (HWD). That's smaller than most inkjets. It's also smaller than, for example, the HP LaserJet Pro P1102w ($149 direct, 3.5 stars) or the Editors' Choice in this category, the Brother HL-2270DW ($150 street, 4 stars). One of the costs of keeping the printer size down is that the ML-2165W is a little weak on paper handling. It offers a single 150-sheet tray, no manual feed, and no automatic duplexing (for printing on both sides of a page).
