by adam on April 22, 2009

The ML 6060 printer by Samsung is an updated version of the Samsung ML 6050 and this laser budget printer had taken advantage of the inkjet trend of affordable prices with increased quality. This printer is considered mid-range when looking at Samsung’s entire printer range. It prints at a speed of 12 pages per minute and can holdup to 550 sheets of paper in the tray.

The ML 6060N, the next model up is exactly the same except it comes with a 10/100 BaseTX Ethernet adapter. This can also be added to the ML 6060 for an additional cost. The print engine is powered using a 66MHz RISC processor, which is standard for most printers. The low memory, 4 MB of RAM, can make printing large graphics heavy documents a problem. It is possible to upgrade to 68 MB.

The printing resolution is 1200 and printing options can be adapted to produce exceptionally clear and crisp graphics and text files. The text printing is the fasting printing speed of all possible printouts. The machine also can function in a toner saving mode that results in 40% toner savings. This printer is a great option for personal printing.

It can print on a few different types of media including plain paper, transparencies, and envelopes and can print a maximum size of legal or A4 paper. It is compatible with the following operating systems, Windows 3.x/95/98, Microsoft DOS, Mac and Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. It cannot be connected to a network but uses a USB connection. The parts and services are covered by a one-year warranty.

The many different printer text all performed excellently though there are some limitations. When printing excel files the printer was at just under its maximum printing speed. The machine was completely able to handle printing black text on full color backgrounds though if the font is below 10 pts the text became blurry.

Printing a document that mixed both text and graphics resulted in a slower printing speed of just under 8 pages per minute. This could be increased if more memory is added to the printer. The graphics and text has excellent contrast and were very clear. To get even better clarity it is possible to fiddle with the dithering options.

Full text documents were produced the fastest and a 50-page text document can be completed in just over four minutes. The print quality for text is the best out of all documents and produces, crisp, clear, sharp text with excellent scaling. The speed and quality of text printing make it one of the best in its class.

The Samsung ML 6060 printer using Samsung ML 6060 toner is an excellent personal computer that delivers fast, high quality printouts. It is at its best printing text documents but has no problem printing graphics. With a few upgrade options you can make this machine very fast and it will take care of any of your personal printing needs.
