-- Conclusion
-- Page: 1 2 3

   The ML-1430 is nearly identical in every way to its predecessor, the 1210. The build and weight is the same, even the cartridge used can be interchanged. One major difference is the page per minute that this new unit can output. The 1210 boasted a 12 page per minute speed, the 1430 has increased that to 15 PPM.

   After testing a few times printing parts of a Red Hat manual in PDF format, the average print time per minute hovered around 14 to 15 PPM.

   Here is a shot of a test print that we made initially:

   Closer inspection showed very little smudging, with crisp edges on text prints.  I noticed on pages with shades of gray, the 1430 prints it a bit darker than preferred.

   Overall, the ML-1430 is an awesome deal for a quiet and fast laser printer.  At 15 PPM, it's one of the fastest in its price class.  The package also includes a toner cartridge valued at $60.

   If you are planning on purchasing an ink jet printer, you may want to take a look at this model.  The quality of laser prints will make you not want to go back to ink jet printers.

   Thanks to Samsung for sending over this sample!
