Summary: I have used this printer for one year with mixed thoughts. It has easy to set up wireless configuration. Print quality is very good. The down sides to the product include a far too often nasty habit of periodically dropping the wireless connection and can only be solved by doing a complete re-install (Samsung customer support was contacted but had no solution other than re-install). Using the printer in a wired installation would provide much fewer headaches.
Summary: I like this printer, but I give it only 3 stars. I bought this printer because I wanted an inexpensive good quality wireless b/w laser printer. This printer is that. But the instructions that come with it to enable the wireless connection are so far below standard as to strip the product of two stars in my evaluation. For somebody like myself, who specifically bought the printer for its wireless capability, this is no trivial matter.
Summary: I wasted 2 days of my life trying to get this thing to work. It wouldn't print with the wireless or with USB cord. I tried everything, drivers, etc. But no printing, status box said not supported, horrible. Printers should just plug in. I finally figured it out, and it is an easy fix. After I got it going, the printer is great for the price. Oh, the fix... For USB plug in make sure your USB printer port monitoring is turned on.
Summary: I talked to Samsung's online support about replacement drums for this printer, when I did not find them easily available on the internet. They said the drum must be replaced by their technician. Translation: once the drum wears out, throw the printer away. However the lifespan of the drum is supposed to be 30,000 pages, according to Samsung.
Summary: I thought this printer would allow me to wirelessly print from my iPhone and iPad it sadly it is not AirPrint enabled. Nice, neat looking printer though. Sadly I need to change it for one which is AirPrint enabled at much higher cost.
Connecting via WiFi very problematic... perfect otherwise

Summary: Indeed this is one of the best looking printers I have ever bought. Very sleek, very compact, understated presence (great for small office) and great printing quality. BUT... connection via WiFi has so far been a pain for me. I have a virgin media wireless router (by Netgear) with a WPS button so connection should have been really simple. Pressed WPS button on printer control panel for a few seconds...
Summary: I bought this printer based on the positive reviews here and am relatively happy with it. It is certainly compact and quiet and very easy to set up. The wireless printing function is extremely useful if I am working in another room and want to print without a connecting wire. However, the printer went through a few days of telling me it had a paper jam every time I pressed print when it didn't and I had to go to the printer to open it up and close it again for every...
