Samsung ML-2525 on sale at Fry’s

There are often really good bargains to be found at the week-end sales at Fry’s Electronics. I don’t usually recommend shopping at Fry’s as it can be a frustrating experience to find what you need. But for those brave enough to wander the aisles of the cavernous store some good deals can be found.

Samsung ML-2525

Samsung ML-2525

This weekend Fry’s is selling the Samsung ML-2525 monochrome (black only) laser printer for only $59.99 after an instant savings of $48.00.

If you only ever print out forms, receipts and documents with no color, you can reduce your costs by a substantial amount over the life of your printer by switching from an inkjet printer to a laser printer. The cost-per-page with a laser printer can be as much as a tenth of the per page cost of an inkjet. In addition there’s no worrying about ink cartridges drying out or leaking with a laser printer.

The Samsung ML-2525 is one of the new breed of laser printers aimed at the home user. They take up no more room than an inkjet printer, they’re quiet and easy to operate. These printers offer no copy function, so if you need a printer with a scanner and copier, this would not be a model for you. These printers are generally easily recognized by Windows, Macintosh and Linux, so no matter which operating system you use connecting this printer to your system should be plug-and-play simple.

If you still want to have the option of printing in color, you can have more than one printer connected to your computer, especially if both connect via USB. The only consideration would be that you should remove the color cartridges (if they are the type with an integrated print head) if you aren’t going to be using the inkjet printer for a while. Keep them store in a cool, dark place with the clip on the color cartridge until you need them.

The cartridge required for the ML-2525 is the MLT-D105S which is available at office supply stores for around $70. Currently we do not have parts available to remanufacture these cartridges but we are looking into the possibility of reusing these in the near future.

The Fry’s site describes the ML-2525:

The ML-2525 mono printer is designed to fit into any workspace. Built for durability boasting print speed of 24 ppm and a monthly duty cycle of 12,000 pages.

Geared to give more print flexibility, the ML-2525 series printers offer a range of features to make you more productive. These include a print screen function so you can print what you see on your screen at the touch of a button.

I use a Samsung ML-2010 at home and have nothing but good to say about the brand and printer. It’s a solid performer that is always ready to print when I need it to.

If you’re in the market for a basic laser printer for your home or office, the ML-2525 may meet your needs. If you’d prefer to get one that uses cartridges we can remanufacture, check out the following Samsung models:

These models may be hard to find at retail outlets; you may have to check Craigslist or eBay.
