Samsung ML-2525W / ML-1665 printers


I am considering these printers:Samsung ML-2525W & ML-1665

I am considering buying one of these printers. Does anyone have
experience with these? I was leaning toward the ML-1665 since it was more economical and I only need it for home use. Would there be much difference between them? How do they work with Linux?

Thanks for any advice.

I run the SCX4828FN using their provided drivers. I can not speak to the specific models you refer to, but Samsung's Linux support is better than most from my experience.

Both models you're looking at have Linux installation software. If you run a wireless router at home, definitely go for the 2525 if the price difference is within your means. The convenience of not needing a print server is worth it. That and the fact that being wireless, it isn't tethered to your hardware and can be placed almost anywhere you have convenient space.
