Summary: It is one of the lightest weight color laser printers. Color printing is a little slow, but cartridges are very easy to replace. Only problem is that there is no scanning software for the Macintosh.
Summary: I couldn't believe it had built in network scanning! For a home/small office this is great! You put in your stack of papers in the ADF and choose Scan to Network. Then simply pick which machine you want it to go to and BAM! that is where it saves the pdf or tiff to.
Cons: (1) Using MS Vista, product will not scan within a network enviornment. Several discussions with tech support confirmed this. Tech support says that they expected the geeks to come up with a fix. (2) Paper tray a bit flimsy. Had a bit of trouble, keep getting message "IP Conflict". uninstalled al...
Summary: Paper tray issues are minor annoyance. Overall the printer is a great value, and if the replacement cartridges last longer than the original beginner set, then this is probably a 5-egg printer.
Pros: Excellent print quality on color/black prints or copies, reasonably fast print out on black-only copies. ADF works well, and scanner software is reasonably configurable, and walks you through whatever you'd like to do, without excessive interference. Integrated fax works well. Very convenient ton...
Cons: Paper tray is somewhat annoying (prone to changing its paper length setting when you pull it out), and holds only 100-125 sheets reasonably. Beginning set of color toner cartridge/tanks does not last long - hope regular replacements last longer.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace a HP MFP mono laser printer that I couldn't keep from streaking. It has performed quite well. I am concerned about other consumables in this printer (Transfer roller, fuser, imaging unit, tray rollers). I have no idea where to find them, nor the costs.
Pros: Multi-Function Color Laser at a low price. Works great as a network printer for XP, Server 2003 and Vista. Image quality is fine and doesn't smudge like ink jet printers.
Cons: Waste Toner Cart fills quickly and is HARD to find in local stores (newegg has them). When the waste toner cart is filled, the printer won't print. Learned this the hard way. Larger paper tray is expensive.
Summary: I bought this all-in-one printer for my business, needed something that would do a variety of things, mainly print and fax. I kept looking at different manufacturers and what they offered and after determining that Samsung was the better option (we own several samsung products and are suppose to...
Summary: Just a couple of points to add to the other two reviews. Before I purchased the unit I called Samsung support just to see what the service was like. I was pleased that I had to make just one menu choice until I spoke to a human.
Summary: I use this printer for my on-the-side wedding video business, and I have a Xerox Phaser 8550 at my full time job (marketing manager). The Phaser was almost twice as much, and the quality is about double that of the Samsung.
Summary: I have owned the Samsung CLX-3160FN for about 4 months now. I also have an HP Color Laserjet 2600n. I have to admit I don't use the Samsung as much for print jobs. I normally use the HP for printing and the Samsung for copying and faxing.
