Good choice--Samsung and Brother are at the top of the heap for lower priced units. It may have come with only a partial load of toner, but even that will last a long time.
Investigate its "toner-saver" settings, if any, to get even more pages before you have to reload.
I think lasers use considerable electricity when running, although I guess "standby" would apply. I keep mine completely "off" until I actually want to print.
Get yourself a plastic cover to place over it to keep the dust out of the mechanism--like you used to see over typewriters--if you remember typewriters.
