Currys bargain printer?

  happymonkey 19:56 24 Feb 2005

Hi guys,

I`ve been on the lookout for a replacement laser printer and saw a SAMSUNG ML 1520 on the Currys website tonight for £49.99. A saving of £50. However, when you click on the buy button, the price jumps back up to £99.99. I phoned their sales team and the guy told me it was a mistake but would honour the £49.99 price. Was he pulling my leg or is it a real bargain? I have bought it anyway and can`t find one cheaper elsewhere.

Office world / Staples nearly always sell this at £49.99

No sign of the printer on the Staples website but they have the lower spec 1510 on the Office World site for £69.95.

Do you have a link to where they are sold for 49.95?

The ML-1520 and the previously available ML-4500 are very good machine for the budget part of the market. Staples,Office World ,PC World,Curry's and Dixon's always seem to have an half price offer on in the past with the ML-4500 and now the ML-1520. Remember that the printer is supplied with a trial toner cartridge, so if you intend to use the printer for bulk printing, make sure you have spare toner cartridges available.
