Worthless Printer for any print job over 4-5 pages

Summary: I purchased this printer over a year ago on a Black Friday deal so the price was incredibly cheap. I should have known better. This printer stinks. I am unable to print anything greater than a few pages without error. If I stick one sheet into the paper feeder it works great! But for bigger print jobs it halts the printing a few pages into the job. This is a time consuming process if you have 10 or more pages to print. Sticking with HP and not going to cut corners again.
Summary: I got this last year at the same time of the year. During the hot days in may it started jamming and tearing paper. I had to print everything double. This semester after four months without using it I decided to give it another try. Same problem, destroys paper, so I just bought a new toner cartridge for nothing. I ended up slamming it on the floor. Also, sometimes the wireless goes out for no reason and you have to wait for it to come back.
Summary: I bought this to print documents as I home educate and we already have an HP Officejet for colour etc. When I set it up it failed to operate and so I contacted Samsung who gave me an authorisation number to get it replaced. I actually bought it from Argos and had to trek miles to find a store with a replacement. Less than 2 months later, the fuser unit has gone. I will not be buying another. Pity Samsung printers are not of the same quality as their mobile phones.
Summary: Printer didn't last 2 months. We had a Sumsung laser printer before and it lasted years. We think the printer wasn't sold to us new. Perhaps it was a bad seller, but it wasn't covered under Amazon guarantee so now we have to deal with the Manufacturer which is going to take ages. The toner went grey within 300 pages of printing. VERY disappointed. Don't know if the printer or the seller, but be warned!
Summary: Just spent 2 days trying to hook this up to an imac with airport extreme. You seem to need the smart panel running to establish a wifi connection. Without the smart panel, you cannot find the I.P address of the printer. The Smart Panel does not run under Mac Lion. Works fine with USB, which kind of defeats the purpose of buying a wifi printer...
Summary: This printer will not wake to print once it goes idle. It works a couple times great and then causes endless problems. I'm going to buy a new printer and throw this almost new one away. I've tried numerous fixes to no avail. Static IP. Reserved IP. No method I could locate to avoid idle.
Summary: Easy setup and decent print quality, but the printer is way too loud. I've been using it for two days as an invoice printer on my desk and I have already had customers comment on how loud and obnoxious it sounds when printing. I thought the days of printers that sounded like vacuum cleaners were behind us...it's going home where it will rarely be used and I'll have to find something else. As an aside, the small footprint advertised is very misleading..
Summary: Don't waste your money on this printer regardless of the deal you are offered, especially if you are a Mac user. It doesn't work wirelessly, and the installation process should be used as a test for a person's sanity. The printing quality is poor and the paper comes ridged with three deep lines after passing through the printer. Cheap, useless and very poor quality product.
