Summary: Came with all toner cart's at about 98% full. Found Samsung toner refill kits on-line cheaper than I could buy color ink cart''s for my old ink jet. The toner will not dry out like ink and will make this cheaper in the long run. Larger than a ink jet but worth it. Print legal, envelopes and labels.
Pros: Prints well. Even color photo's on everyday "stock" paper look as good as photo's on printer paper on any of the old ink jet type printers I have owned in the past. I have tried and used every function but the fax function. We don't have old time wire phones here. Good and tired of those noisy an...
Cons: The documentation could be just a little better on setting up the wifi interface. The best thing appears to be to let the installation disk install everything but select you will connect to the printer later. Wifi was fast and easy after that on a devices off our network.
Summary: I should have taken one star off for documentation but then you have to get it all on-line from Samsung. It didn't come with any. Setting it up for WiFi connection only works if you do the setup drivers and configuration in the mode "USB" without connecting to the device.
Pros: Everything I have tried works 100%. Color photos are excellent, you don't have to mess with color hue's and shades for things to look good. All my toner levels were at 97 and 98% full. Unit looks new. Prints, copies and scans to computer 100% good.
Cons: I can't find any documentation on-line at the Samsung site that explains how and what functions the paper tray has. The top single sheet copy feeder isn't documented any place.
Summary: I had update the firmware as the printer would not come on out of sleep mode when you try to print. After the firmware update, all is well. I'm not sure what the other guy was talking about with a toner drain.
Pros: Works great, easy setup, no issue with the touchscreen, still using the included toner with moderate use. Never once had a paper jam.
Excerpt: After buying top of the line ink jets every couple of years, I decided to bite the bullet and get a color laser printer. With a monthly work load of 40000 pages compared to 1000-1500, my theory is that this printer should last many years.
Pros: Accurate Colors, Efficient, Fast, Quiet, Sharp Detail
Pros: Easy to set up for all users. Copying and Printing quality is great.
Cons: Quick install guides were not intuitive. I had to go through and remove a couple of pieces of tape and plastic that it was not clear from the instructions needed to be cleared. (Items were not in plain view either)
Summary: Absolutely great customer service on Newegg site !!! My regards to the outstanding job they did with the price alert, that's why I am with Newegg for so long and will always recommend it to friends and customers.
Pros: Extremely easy to setup printer, I'm using it on 1 wired and 3 wireless computers, in gigabit network, connected with no issues at all. All of my mobile devices - 2 iPhones and an iPad connected effortlessly Print quality is fine for what I'm using it.
Cons: None so far, I was using Samsung products for years, my oldest printer - 6 years old b/w Samsung ML 1210 is till up and running flawlessly like a Champ, I'm not expecting anything less from the new addition.
Summary: Great printer for the price (on sale). I have had a brother laser all-in-one printer before this for about eight years and this one is smaller, lighter, faster and prints/scans with better quality. Color laser printers spoil you, until you have to shell out for new cartridges.
Pros: Good speed, good quality, low price, great features (including printing from my iPad or Android phone wirelessly)
Cons: Duplex printing cost $100 more. I would have considered it for around $50 or less.
Excellent multipurpose color printer/copier/scanner
6 November 2012
Summary: This printer is designed for business workgroup use and has a lot of advanced networking options you would expect from a professional workgroup printer. I plan to use this for my home office and will probably use only a fraction of its capabilities.
Pros: - Superior print quality and color reproduction for a printer in this price range - High resolution printing options - Fast printing and copying speeds and time to print - Advanced wireless networking options - Onboard LCD touchscreen - Low 3W idle power draw in standby mode
Cons: - Awkward location of paper output - High power draw during warm-up phase and printing (~800-1000W) - Expensive toner - No auto-duplex mode; manual duplex only
