Printers are essential to any small business or student still in school but more often than not, there are so many on the market that it's hard to tell which is best to buy. The main question to ask yourself is what features do you really need? If you plan on printing color material for a report then a monochrome printer is not what you need.
The Samsung ML-2855ND is a monochrome (black & white) printer with networking and duplex capabilities. For the average business or home network, a networked printer is a huge plus. You can plug the printer into your router and everyone can print to it at their own leisure. Similarly, duplex is a must have these days. Killing trees is bad for the environment and you can do your part by printing on both sides!
