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.
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 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: After owning this printer for close to 9 months now, I can safely say I have had mostly problems with it. I bought this printer for it's claim to print on heavier card and index and cover paper, which it does not.
Summary: I work in a grant writing office and we have a need for our printers to print a large quantity and in good quality. During our busy season I typically print about 1800 pages a week just to give you some persepctive. We've tried a few other printers and this is, by far, the best one yet.
Summary: I was tired of replacing ink jet cartridges to have them dry up on me before I could use them up, so a coworker told me about this printer. Wow, it's wonderful - I'm in IT and every requirement I wanted it had: It's networked (wired, my preference), prints duplex (both sides without user...
Summary: After comparing the Samsung to the HP's in its class, the Samsung won hands down for best value. This printer is replacing a Minolta 2300, a true work horse for about 6 or 7 years. So far (I've had the Samsung about 1 month) the printer has produced great color presentations; definatly recommend.
Summary: Had this printer for about 6 weeks. 1st 2 weeks were ok. Starting to get jam messages after every page printed. Opened top and bottom, message cleared, but 2 page print job was screwed up. Now I continue to get jam messages, but after 1st page prints 2nd page actually is jamming.
