Samsung ML-3710ND Mono Laser Printer – Does the business !

Very good service from supplier, printer is good, solid, reliable and efficiant and seems so far to be trouble free and economical. Only small complaint that 1st sheet of paper from a print job seems to take a little longer to print than i would have expected but other than that i would recommend. Updated 13/3/13 very impressive machine, reliable, solid but it is noisy .

I purchased this samsung printer and an additional toner / drum to complete a large bit of print work several thousand pages in length. Pages had to be printed both sides and collated and then inserted into specific covers etc. The samsung ml3710nd is just the kit for such work. Easy to set up and handles paper with no hassle. Great for network usage as it just works reliably. This is our 2nd samsung laser and we are very impressed with the quality and functionality. Would have bought colour but put off by the cost of cartridges, however the mono laser proved to be perfect for our requirements.

Totally reliable workhorse. . Churns out prints day in day out without jams, or crinkles.

  • My favourite mono printer to date
  • Not a lot to add
  • good, but don’t believe the toner empty messages

This is an excellent (although now upated) printer, cheap to run and very reliable. . This purchase was a replacement for our’s that has lasted three trouble-free years. Nothing fancy, just a good reliable network printer for the smaller office.

What an amazingly fast quality laserprinter. This is one of my buys of the year. The printer is very, very fast. You click print, you turn around and the paper is out already – i kid you not. The quality is excellent for a b/w and the beauty is it prints both sides (duplex) as well as being a network printer. This has saved me loads of paper so far. The setup was extremely easy. I connected the printer to my router with an ethernet cable and setup the ip address through the software. I found the printer straight away and print using windows 7 and ubuntu 10. 04 (see ubuntu support page for brilliant printing – do not download linux printer software from samsung for this printer).

The previous reviews accurately reflect pretty much everything you need to know about this printer. If i had to find a negative point t would be that it can be quite noisy when starting up when you’re sat in the same small room, especially if someone else is using it and you weren’t expecting it. Other than that, it’s behaved flawlessly and just works, very well.

Good service depends upon attention to detail. The machine arrived promptly and was well packed and simple to set up – no complaints on that score at all. The main problem (and the reason for the low rating) was that it came without any means to connect it to the computer. It was a simple matter to order an appropriate usb cable from amazon and this arrived within three days – but it inevitably this entailed a delay between the machine arriving and being able to use it. I would happily have paid an extra fiver for a deal that included all the necessary components. At the very least, the absence of a cable should have been flagged up at the ordering stage so that i could have ordered one at the same time as the printer. This may seem a minor matter but good service depends in large part on attention to detail and in this case someone has made a daft decision which has presumably saved money for the manufacturer or retailer but has had a negative impact on the consumer experience.

  1. I bought this printer for medium duty for a small business. It is really fast compared to the previous one we had.

    Good printer at a good price. We can’t look past samsung printers. Of the dozens that we have had over the years we have only had a few that haven’t lasted, and that might just have been heavy handedness, clearing papers jams, replacing toner etc.

    Good, but don’t believe the toner empty messages. I bought this printer five months ago, to replace a kyocera fs-1030d which had served me well for five years but eventually developed an unrepairable fault. Overall, i am very pleased with the new printer. It is quiet and fairly economical. I mainly print reports and letters with text and the quality of this is good. So far, i have had 5200 pages printed from the starter toner, which is rated for 5000, so this is very encouraging. The duplex allows me to mimimise paper usage. It is fairly fast, but i would say slower in duplex mode than my old kyocera (which was a similar price). And i would also say it probably makes more clunking noises when operating the duplex. Not unacceptably noisy, but it seems less mechanically smooth than the kyocera.

    My favourite mono printer to date. I am an active printer user with about 100 pages printed daily in a small/home office. While i’ve always used brother personal printers before, like hl-2140 (i printed a bit less then) and was fairly happy with them i wanted to try a different make as brothers have their disadvantages (less then perfect image quality over time, a bit noisy, a bit slow etc). I first bought samsung ml-2525w but it turned out to be a disaster, it cost me more to run a month than a printer itself so i had to let it go. Having learned the lesson, i searched for a bigger printer which cost more upfront but then toner costs are much lower. Samsung ml-3710nd fitted the bill perfectly. It’s not overly expensive, yet toner cost about £120 for 10 000 pages – a bit more than a penny per page. In 2 months i already saved a printer’s price compared to 2525w model. Print quality is absolutely fantastic. Every new toner comes with a drum so it’s like brand new printer every time.
