Summary: This is a great all around lazer printer,not to big and fairly quiet. It prints great quality. I like everything about it execpt the VERY EXPENSIVE TONER CARTRAGES. The cartrages are nearly $100+/- EACH. The 4 initial cartrages do only about 600 pages,then you spend about $400+/- for the OEMs which do color at 1800 and black at 2500 pages. Samsung needs to offer refills and cartages at a much better price. Think of this when you look at printers.
Summary: While I have considered purchasing a Color Laser Printer, I never have bought one because of the "sticker shock" that comes when you have to buy the replacement cartridges. Oh, I've had my share of color inkjet printers that cost $450+, and I've always had a black and white laser printer for "office" printing, but I never combined the two and had a color laser because spending $320 for replacement cartridges just seemed too steep for my "Scotch-Irish" genes; however,...
Summary: I have not had this for very long, but so far it seems better than any ink jet that is out there. The color is not as good as watching a sunset through the naked eye, but it is a printer and for most of us it is fine. I will never have ink go bad, never have date expired, and as far as I know the ink will last for a very long time. I have had a number of ink jet printers and I have not found one that is any good.
good interface and network features, reasonable speed and print quality

Summary: We've ordered two printers for our office. The Brother DCP-8080dn and this Samsung. I like this one better. This printer has a color control panel that's much more modern than the Brother. Wifi works well, and the scan and print quality are fine. Unlike the Brother, this Samsung supports sending scan emails directly to an SMTP server. UPDATE: The internals got gummed up possibly due to trying to print on the wrong type of paper.
Summary: I thought I had done my homework and found a printer that had everything I needed and almost everything I wanted for a reasonable price and with relatively cheap toner replacements. I had wanted automatic duplex printing, but given all the other plusses to this printer, I was willing to settle for manual duplexing, so I made the purchase. Setup on my PC was flawless with the included software, and wireless connection to my home Wi-Fi network was amazingly easy.
Summary: It prints well. The reason for 4 stars: - it consumes a lot of electricity. When it starts printing or scanning, sealing lights dim. Not a big deal, but why does it do it just for scanning? - Scanning from the printer does not work well. There should be something with menu software. At some point menu become not responsive and it is hard to make it scan. I was able to scan 5 sheets of paper then I gave up. However, here is a workaround - scan from your PC!
Massive office monster, but really good at its job.

Summary: Okay, first of all, a disclaimer: I'm using this in a home, not an office. This makes a difference because the typical home isn't going to need all of this when smaller, cheaper inkjets will do a decent job. That said, I really like this printer. Yes, it's massive. It's huge. It's fifty-five pounds of laser printing goodness. But oh, man, does it print fast, and the results are very nice. Whether it's printing color or black-and-white, it just looks great.
Summary: This is my first day with this new printer. I purchased it to replace a Brother 7420, which was a quiet monochrome printer. By comparison this one is very noisy on the start up but quiet and fast on the actual printing--the occupant of the office below came up to see what was making the "marching" noise.
Summary: The Samsung CLX-4195FW is a nice home office printer. The setup time was literally 10 minutes from box opening to printing and that was with wireless only network connections. I did not, and still have not, physically connect(ed) this printer to a computer. The setup was extremely simple for me, having a modern router with a pushbutton connect helped tremendously, so I did not have to enter any SSID or password information.
Summary: The final print quality is very good and while it was fussy to set up, (more difficult than any previous printer)it's been very reliable since. The large size and pricey toner make it iffy as a home printer, but if quality results outweigh those concerns, it might be the right printer for you.
