Compact Mono Laser Samsung ML-2851ND on Ubuntu LinuxFiled under: Other;
After Me my good old HP Laserjet 4000N was just too big, unfortunately, was a new printer due. Actually, a true-office printer is ideal, there is toner for more than 10,000 pages to hold out for less than 20 €, but somehow have to find the murder Drum also its place, in my case was no longer the case.The criteria for purchasing new were therefore compact body proportions, tolerable cost of printing, built-in duplexer and wireless connection.
The thing with the wireless network can not solve as cost Unfortunately, the best model in this class is the Brother HL-2270DW, the printer is almost as compact as the Brother, but with ~ 120 € in the acquisition and ultimately, the consumer cheaper.
Technically I can not actually write, as for example what was said in druckerchannel.de in a 9-page report already on the printer. As a user I can say is that the printer is in stand silently, side pressure in the absolutely sufficient speed to be displayed and the printer after printing quickly goes into standby and thus is no longer a peep from him. They also come with the print quality I see with my eyes lay no problems, my razor sharp letters from the printer, which should be for a laser printer but not surprising. So I'd rather write about current printing costs and the operation of the printer under Linux.
The printing costs must
I disagree with the statement by Druckerchannel.de a bit. Of course, the cost is compared to a large format printer later, but when you compare the print with a similar format, then the Samsung is still relatively cheap. All printers are cheaper Druckkosten.de listed in the design of considerably greater.
Who wants a compact printer that unfortunately has probably bite the bullet and buy expensive toner. For the Samsung ML-2851ND get a remanufactured toner of 5000 pages with the same capacity for about 60 € and different such as Brother, it does not regularly a new drum, since the toner cartridge of Samsung developer unit which contains both the image drum. The printing costs will remain so in the context of what is tolerable.
I'm not even the printer connected to the USB port because I want to print from multiple users. Therefore, I hung the same printer via Ethernet to my network, as mentioned above is that the ML-2851ND only by cable.
Start on Ubuntu was actually pretty smooth, not because I would FRITZ! Box was. For some reason it sent to the printer completely moronic network settings so that the printer I could not speak of my first computer.
Over a printout of the configuration I am then the problem came on the ropes. The solution was then relatively easy … if the FRITZ! Has said that the printer should always get the same IP, the data were also transmitted correctly. Makes everything not really make sense, but since the printer works fine.
Start on Ubuntu is then completely straightforward. You open the printer settings, says that it wants to add a new printer and then waits until the print dialog appears, the ML-2851ND. A few clicks later, you can even print a test page, and used by the Samsung CD provided you do not insert only.
All features such as two pages per sheet or double-sided printing using the duplexer, then work out-of-the-box. The management of the printer via the browser, the corresponding IP gets her example out on your router. There can then be read out of the filling of toner or any other configuration to the network. In the normal case, one of the web front-end printer, however, be relatively unimportant.
All in all, the Samsung ML-2851ND laser printer a quite useful for all Linux users who are looking for a compact home printer. The device under Linux is straightforward and should be easily possible for every real Linux users. However, many printers should prefer to buy a larger unit in which the toner is getting cheaper.
