Manufacturer’s Description

Imagine a printer that's small, sleek and silent. That was the idea behind the Samsung ML-1630 personal laser printer. It's small. In fact, it's the smallest laser printer in the world. It's sleek, with a rich piano black finish, button less soft-touch controls and blue LED indicators. And it's silent. At just 45 dBA, it's the quietest laser printer in the world. But it's more than just a pretty interface. The ML-1630 is ready to work. Fast 17 ppm printing. First page out in 15 seconds from Sleep. And more. Look good while you work. With the ML-1630 personal laser printer, it's not hard to imagine.
