Sharp, laser-quality output should be a given in printers for any modern-day office. In this regard, Samsung's ML-4600 is a competent, reasonably priced laser printer that can adequately serve low-capacity business needs.
uring our testing, the ML-4600 performed just under its rated speed of 8ppm (pages per minute). The printer took a while to process the first page in a batch, but after that, it performed close to its official speed.
We had no problem with configuration or installing the printer's toner.
The ML-4600 comes with two paper trays. The first offers storage for 150 sheets, and the second may be used to feed letterhead, envelopes, or labels.
The laser printer is a more powerful, pricier version of Samsung's ML-4500. The ML-4600 comes with more memory -- 4MB versus 2MB, and is better suited for offices. In all, the ML-4600 is a solid, competitive printer. However, it's not the kind of unit that should be at the center of a busy network.
PROS: Good clear text output; 1200dpi resolution
CONS: No paper manual
