Summary: Great printer for the home office. I had to update the drivers from the Samsung website to get the colors to calibrate manually. It runs beautifully on the wireless network and is nice and compact. I will never go back to inkjet.
Summary: The Samsung CLX-3185FW is a great printer for the money. It offers many features that make it user friendly. It takes a little knowledge of computers to correctly set up all the funtions, but once you have it set up, it works well. I purchased this as a small business tool to print high quality color prints. This creats prints that look like they are professionally done. With the cost being a big part of this, I was very happy with the overall value.
I am happy with this machine. A good buy for a great value.

Summary: This is a great all-in-one color laser printer. Print, copy and scan quality are all fine. I have never used fax. It lets you print wirelessly through your wi-fi modem. It is a convenience. but the only problem I have with this printer is when it goes into sleep mode it loses contact with the wireless computers. Often times, I have to turn off and on or resart wireless modem manually or from the computer. For some people it may be big problem.
Summary: I am a basic user and I do not use the unit much - maybe once a week. I like the print quality and the speed of printing. Scanning speed could be a little faster, but I am scanning pictures at 600 dpi. I called support once and they were very helpful. I was over an hour on the phone with them. I am having trouble setting up the wireless network function, but that may be my fault.
Summary: I had horrible problems with it at first and was literally on the verge of sending it back when someone on a blackboard suggested that I try a different usb cable. Amazing. I had no idea that cables could go bad and cause printing problems. I have an odd living situation where I can't get into the wifi network, and so only use the cable but it works fine. The color is good and the print quality is good.
Summary: I bought the Samsung CLX-3175FW All-In-One Laser Printer three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive product. Overall, I'd recommend the printer if you're on a budget.
Summary: At the advice of a tech saavy relative I purchased the Samsung CLX 3175. This is truly lightyears ahead of my old HP ink jet printer. The technology is amazing and it works perfectly. A bit daunting for the less then tech able but once it's installed and up to speed I doubt you will find a nicer laser printer at this price and for my money, any price. It's compact and replaces several items on my desk.
Summary: The wireless setup is difficult. It took four calls to technical support, and almost an entire day to get the wireless working. The first two reps were clueless. The third and fourth were excellent. They quickly diagnosed the problem, undid the mistakes of their predecessors, and had me up and running in minutes. The printer itself is great. Quiet. Small. Nice looking output, though not true "photo quality." Perfect for my home office.
Summary: I was tried of buying ink cartridges and using most the ink to purge and clean print heads so I decided to buy a color laser. The Samsung CLX-3175FW had everything I needed at a good price. I have purchased manufacturer refurbished in the past and have been very pleased with them. So far I am very pleased with the purchase of this printer. The setup was easy. I'm using it on a wireless network and have had no problems so far.
