Summary: This printer gives good quality printing. I was not expecting the toner to run out as often as it does. It is expensive to print color copies. The black and white is better. Cheaper paper sometimes gets jammed easily, especially when doing double sided prints. It is fairly easy to unjam it. It is slow to run large quantities and is probably better for small tasks.
Summary: So far, this seems like a great printer. I will know more when I see how long the toner lasts. When the unit powers up, the lights in my house flicker a lot. I have never had a printer do this before. The good news is that it has a power saver mode. If the toner lasts well, I would definitely recommend this printer to others.
Summary: Picked up this printer from tigerdirect.com for $129.99. The printer was a breeze to setup on windows xp and works great. So far, I have tested the black/white and color printing. The b/w text printing is sharp and well. The color image printing is not so great on the other hand. But does well for the job. Don't expect photo quality images.
Summary: I had a black and white NEC laser printer that I have been using since 1999. It has been a great printer for me but I couldn't get drivers for it any more. The Samsung is not a very fast printer and it does have the funny smell that other reviewers have commented on, but it prints with a great quality and I am very happy with it. For printing at home and for school projects it has met my needs and the price is right.
Great value, not the best, but better than inkjet printers.

Summary: The product is slow since it has to warm up for prints, but it is fast in printing multiple documents. The wireless setup works great. It tells you the life of the toner and the other components... Color prints are 3x as slow as B&W prints. It's fun to print with and it is a good laser printer (I'm done with inkjet).
Summary: Picked it up for under $200 with free shipping at amazon. I'm impressed so far, but can't comment on long term quality. When the box arrived it indicated one touch WiFi on the box, but I didn't think I had ordered one that was WiFi capable. It is indeed NOT a WiFi capable printer. It must be connected with a USB, but the only thing included in the box was the power cable. Luckily I had a USB cord from my old printer and used that.
