Nwogu explained that one of the printers, ML-1860 is the smallest mono laser printer in the world and prints over 1,500 pages.

The ML-1860, he said comes with a print screen button, conveniently located on the printer control panel which lets you print the contents from your screen, quickly and easily, even when you’re away from your desk.

“Just one touch is all that it takes,” he declared, adding that with one click, there’s no more extra editing or cropping of unwanted content-clutter from original webpages or documents.

As said by him, if a single page is what is needed for printing, this could be achieved by high simply highlighted the required one page and pressing the print button.

“One simple press of a button prints your screen, as it appears on your monitor,” he said.

Nwogu further said that by mere touching of the eco-button via selection the toner save mode as activated, noting that in order to do more, an administrator could customise the eco-settings to convert printouts to two or four pages per sheet, as well as print in duplex as standard.

Pointing out that with the unique result simulator, users of the printer could see exactly how much CO2, electricity and paper saved with the settings selected. Thus giving customers the real insight into the positive impact the Samsung ML-3310ND is having on their costs and the environment.

Interesting. It is good that Samsung is investing for eco printers because it is really helpful to our environment. It would also cost less.

Samsung is indeed one of the leading companies that offer great electronic products that make our lives easier and convenient. Running a promo on their products compels every computer-owner to shop & buy printers and other accessories. I wonder if the nearby company in our area that offers Bristol printing services also uses Samsung products to print documents and images. Anyhow, I am very happy with the services they are providing me.

Samsung has been working hard at keeping up with the consumers' needs and thinking how they can help also in saving something for the environment. This isn't a big shock after all, we know there will be a time for office machines to take their pledge in saving the environment.-Kimberly
