About Samsung ML-2165 Toner
The Samsung ML 2165 is a mono laser printer that requires toner to reproduce images from the screen on to paper. The toner is only available in black as it is not compatible with colour printers. The toner cartridges are long in shape and fit in to the machine by sliding them into place and locking them with a quick release mechanism. To remove the old cartridge the process is reversed, with a small amount of pressure applied in an upward motion to release the locking clips.
In most cases the toner will come with a 1,500 page printing capacity. This offers very good value on the cost of printing per page and is appropriate for both commercial and domestic use. The toner works by coating the drum of the printer. The laser will have copied the image on to the drum and paper is then forced over it and the combination of heat and pressure transfers the toner from the drum on to the paper. This produces a sharper and higher quality image than older ink jet style printers. Also, toner is able to produce more copies than ink, making it a more cost effective alternative.
Samsung ML 2165 toner is only compatible with Samsung products. The toner cartridges for the ML 2165 printer will fit some of the other printers in the Samsung range including some of the SCX and SF printer range, but you will need to check the specifications before use. Failure to use the correct toner for your printer could result in damage to both the toner and the printer.
