Build and Design

In the case of the Samsung ML-5512nd, high functioning can also mean heavy; you’ll want to unpack the printer with a second person and find a strong surface to place the printer on. This is not meant to be a desktop style laser despite the fairly compact standard dimensions (18 x 17 x 21 inches).

Dimensions will vary for medium to large businesses that decide to take advantage of paper handling options because the ML-5512nd run with four additional cassettes or with two additional cassettes and a 2,000-sheet high capacity feeder caster base for a maximum paper capacity of 3,660 sheets. You can also upgrade by adding a finisher with stapler or a four slot mailbox.

The ML-5512nd has a large output tray (maximum 1,000 sheets) on the top of the device with the control panel residing on the front. The control panel features a four line LCD, four directional navigation wheel, alphanumeric keypad and five quick keys (including the Eco Mode button).

Lift up under the control panel to access the consumables. The ML-5512nd uses a two piece set with a toner cartridge and imaging unit. Samsung offers three toner yields: standard capacity up to 10,000 pages, high capacity up to 30,000 pages and a third extra high capacity up to 40,000 pages. The imaging unit has a standard life of 80,000 pages.

Both the 100-sheet multipurpose tray and standard 520-sheet paper cassette can be accessed via the front of the device. You’ll also find a front side USB port just above the multipurpose tray handle.

The ML-5512nd comes with a 700 MHz Dual Core processor and 256MB of memory standard. Users can purchase additional memory/hard disk drive. You’ll find access to memory on the left side of the device.
