On my Samsung ML1865/XAA Series printer, I printed a web document of text and graphics with the default setting (pretty much) for comparison, but with the 'toner save' selection on; got a decent print; but light.
Again, I went to the "File, Print" to print the web document, but this time selected the "preferences" button at the mid-right of the screen.
On the the subsequent "Printing Preferences" screen, the "Basic" tab is the default, and if "Best" quality versus "Normal" is selected the printed page will be darker and of better quality.
However, if you want even darker printed pages, select the "Graphics" tab at the top. On this page be sure to check the "Darken Text" and "All text Black" boxes on the "Font/Text" section at the top; that "Toner Save" is "Off" and that "Darkness" is selected as "Dark" rather than "Normal" or "Light". The printed page -- for me at least -- was visibly darker, both text & graphics. I suspect you adjust these to your personal preferences or as appropriate for various types of documents.
You can make the same changes if you have your Samsung ML1865W Series icon installed on the Windows taskbar, by right-clicking, then selecting "Driver Settings". Don't know why this opens the "Printing Preferences" page while the "Printer Setting" selection opens a "Printer Setting Utility" page, but it does. (Haven't tried adjusting the Preferences setting from here and they did not change when I had printed the aforementioned pages, but then once printed, the preferences went to the defaults I had before, so my guess is that the graphics changes have to be made with every print, but I don't know as yet, as I've only had this printer two days.
Anyway hope this works as well for your Samsung series printer. Enjoy! (Mine is totally awesome, even if the toner replacement will cost as much as the printer itself!!!)
