Summary: I was completely satisfied with this printer in all areas, performance, reliability, ease of use, etc. That is until it came time to replace the cartridges. I expected this would be expensive. I did not expect what I found when I opened up one of the "empty" cartridges.
Summary: If you upgrade the memory, only the SAMSUNG or OEM Printer memory will work (something with the speed control). Reasonable life on Toner Carts. Replaced Black Toner. Failed to recognize. Returned Toner for replacement. Recognized Toner @99% full but NO black toner comes out.
Summary: I've used this printer for 2-3 years, for light daily use at my office. Toner replacement is about 75% of the original purchase price, which makes it very much like a Darnette Disposable Toilet when it comes to toner replacement.
Summary: Well, right off the bat, the thing didn't last. There is this transfer belt assembly lasted maybe 3000 pages, and then it kind of shredded. NOT covered under warranty - in fact, its a consumable, and you're supposed to cough up $199+ every year or so when this happens.
Summary: I've owned many models (HP, Canon, Epson, Samsung) and have repaired many printer models (Dell (aka Samsung), HP, Xerox, Canon) for work. I wanted a Duplex printer with a 500+ sheet tray to upgrade my old $80 laser BW Samsung which never had an issue.
Summary: I've been using this printer for a couple months now and have been very impressed so far. The web-based administration panel is very informative and complete. The printer is fast and has great color. It has a low-power mode that works as expected.
Summary: I found this printer on sale for considerable savings. I placed the order on Friday, May 11, and received the printer before noon on Monday, May 13, WOW! The printer works as expected. Text is great but graphics leave a bit to be desired. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.
Get a "popular" printer, unless you're used to troublesome tech

Summary: First, let me start off by saying that I work for a small business who's management has decided to use these as their next 'batch' of color printers, as they are essentially dirt cheap. We have 12 of these in various parts of the company. The first 12 were bought all at once, from Fry's Electronics.
