Summary: Really the good thing about this printer is just that it's a color laser printer. Other than that, I find the settings and options are confusing and finding the owners guide that relates to your question is not easy. Also it doesn't work with paper that is over 30 lbs, which not very heavy at all. So I have a huge package of paper that is useless. Also the toner cartridges that it comes with do not last long at all, not near the "pages per cartridge" that it advertises.
Summary: First good points: 1. Nice packaging 2. Easy unpacking and setup 3. Nice iphone app for direct printing 4. Easy wireless setup Not so Good points: 1. Manual is very confusing 2. Wireless setup though easy, is not very intuitive 3. Paper tray is little tricky to setup, I had to watch you tube video to get it right 4. Scanning function is not very good, takes lots of time.
Summary: I've had the printer for about a week and as a MFP it is OK. I think as a printer it works well and does what is expected of it. As a scanner it is missing a feature that my $80 canon MFP had and that is the ability to do duplex scanning. This is not a hardware issue, bur rather software. After scanning the canon would tell you to flip the pages over and place them back in the scanner. It would then scan the second side of the page and place the pages in proper order.
Summary: I’M MAD AS HELL! I changed up from CLX3175FW to CLX3305FW. Both nice little printers. Imagine my surprise when the new printer refused to print when the color toner cartridges ran out of ink. I still had plenty of black left. Next. Previously, for the CLX3175, I could buy a 3-pack of the color cartridges for $112. Now I can only buy each color cartridge separately and the total comes to $166. Worse, each single color cartridge has a different delivery date.
Summary: In the box: The Printer, toner cartridges, power and USB Cabled. Quick Start Guide and Software installation CD. Basic Specs: Multi Function, Does copying, printing and faxing. Manual Duplexing (dual sides printing) Print Speed 19 pages per minute black, 4ppm Color. Wifi, USB2 or 802.11 b/g/n Wirless connectivity. Dimensions 16" width 14.3" Depth and 13.1" height. Black Ink Toner 1,500 pages. Color Tonor 1,000 pages.
Summary: I'll be comparing this printer to my Epson WorkForce 845 Wireless All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer, Copier, Scanner, Fax, iOS/Tablet/Smartphone/AirPrint Compatible (C11CB92201) to give some of my criticism context. The Epson is an inkjet so I have tried not to draw contrast where that may be a factor. I have the Epson but the Samsung became available for free to review through Vine so I wanted to see how a color laser would compare to the color inkjet.
Summary: This is a state of the art color laser printer that pretty much does everything. Copy, scan, fax, airprint. App to print from your iphone or ipad. Easy set up and the copies both print and photo are outstanding. Found that the starter toner is so far holding up; however, the actuall replacement toner costs for this item is very expensive. Over $150.00 for all the cartridges. All in all this is a nice rugged and large printer.
Summary: I bought this printer because the written description suggests that it is a wireless printer: "print from anywhere in your home". Having set it up and tried to use it wirelessly, I have found that it is not wireless. This is very annoying. The printer works well, much quicker than my old one and the quality of printing is good but I feel I have been misled by the description.
