    Which is the best value for money laser printer?

    Are you looking for the best value for money black & white laser printer? Check out the Samsung ML-2161 Laser Printer.

    I'm looking for a monochrome laser printer to print the school projects and basic home documents. Can anybody suggest me which is the most value for money, black & white laser printer?

    A color printer would have been ideal since I have to print color copies for children often. However, color laser printers seem to be very expensive. Color inkjet printers are cheaper but I am concerned about having to refill the ink very often and misuse by children. So I decided to stick with a laser monochrome printer.

    Please suggest me a good, cheap laser printer with good print quality. What do you think about Samsung ML-2161 laser printer?
