Showing 1-10 of 17
Average value considering the toner is a bit expensive - refills way to go
5 November 2011
Summary: This is an excellent quality and well made printer. It is perfect for a small workgroup and the wifi makes it a great choice. Software is easily available from the manufacturer. I would suggest you price the toner which is a little high for the type of printer - HP and others are actually cheaper to run. Also check the manufacturer to make sure the software is available for windows 7 - I have not checked that yet.
Summary: I got this printer at another retailer for $49.99! Installed it very quickly (clearing out the space and stringing the wire into the drawer is what took the longest) and started printing right away with no problems. There is a slight delay for the data transfer, but once it starts printing, it is REALLY fast! (It's a bit noisy and rattles like it's about the explode... more on mechanical attributes later...
Summary: just a printer not anything else.... no multi fuction i would have scx-4600 printer perfeormance are ok it is does not have network connection. also wireless fuction does not have.... better buy network or wireless fuction have it.
Summary: This is a great little printer: fast, quiet, nice quality prints. The problem with this printer is the cost of the toner. $70 for 2500 copies is absurd! Samsung reasoning seems to be "sell the printer really cheap and then make a bundle by screwing buyers on the toner.
Summary: I bought this printer (from other shop) based on great reviews, after some 10 years of using Brother printers, which never failed me and were cheap to run but I wanted to try something new after last Brother needed a new drum (and it's cheaper to buy a new printer which I always did). First impressions were very positive, very classy look and immaculate print quality.
Summary: I found the print quality to be acceptable but the networking capability to be weak. My network uses WPA2 encryption security and limits access only to specific machines with MAC numbers defined to the network. I followed every step in the manual for activating the printer's network capability, all to no avail. I contacted Samsung Level 1 Support and they finally gave up and gave me the phone number for Level 2 Support.
Summary: I don't use this printer that much, so I cannot judge longevity and reliability. I'm network savvy, so the security layers I have in place made it all the more difficult to get the printer to work on my wireless network. I needed to find the printer's wireless MAC address and it took a while. Even after entering the appropriate information and getting the printer to work, it would not rejoin the network again after cycling power.
Pros: Inexpensive workhorse printer that produces good copy. Easy to install, and service.
Cons: Duplexing feature fails approximately 95% of the time requiringe additional printing and sorting of printer errors. Clumsy feed for single sheets, envelopes, card stock, etc. Print tends to smuge toward end of toner cartridge life.
Fast, quiet, and small, but not as economical as past models

Summary: Generally speaking, I like Samsung printers. They're inexpensive, and in the past it's been possible to find dirt-cheap aftermarket toner cartridges for them, so you could print for about a penny per page. I still haven't been able to find aftermarket cartridges for this printer though. All the usual suspects list it as "coming soon," but have since April. I guess Samsung has made the cartridges for this printer a lot harder to reverse-engineer.
