New York - Samsung will reduce the price of its ML-1210 laser printer to less than $200 upon the introduction of the company's new ML-1430 in June.
Chanel O'Connor, Samsung's product marketing manager, did not give an exact price, but hinted it would be in the $150 range. This price point is not a promotional ploy to blow out remaining stock, O'Connor said, but Samsung plans to keep the ML-1210 on the market possibly until the holiday season. The ML-1210 has been available since last summer.
With the addition of the ML-1430, suggested retail price $199, Samsung will have two entry-level laser printers, she said. Lexmark's E-210 is the only laser printer priced below $199.
The ML-1430 features 15 page per minute printing, 600dpi resolution and has a 150-sheet paper tray.
