When printing, the ML-2165w hovered in a range of 200 – 500W but almost immediately dropped to less than 100W when the job was completed.
The ML-2165w stays around 2W in ready mode; when the printer drops into sleep mode the energy use drops to about 1W. Pretty impressive for a laser printer, even when it’s as small and simple as the ML-2165w.

The selling point for the Samsung ML-2165w could also be considered its major flaw: it is a single function monochrome laser printer. The target market is small for this device; think a home or small office in need of an inexpensive, high volume printer or a dorm room where the student has limited space and prints quite a bit.
And although the ML-2165w offers wireless connectivity isn’t ideal as anything other than a desktop printer simply because of it’s limited functionality. If you are looking for an affordable, no nonsense printer with multiple connection options for personal use be it in a office or a home, than the ML-2165w could be right for you.
