Many good qualities, but kills trees

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.
Summary: The ML 2525W printer was easy to install in a wireless network. The quality of print and the speed is excellent for the price. There is one drawback. After a print job is completed, the printer goes to sleep after a few minutes of inactivity.
Summary: This printer will not work with Mac OS X 10.6.5 Snow Leopard. The driver is still not upgraded to work. A work around is to print one document and turn the printer off then turn it back on before printing another document.
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.
Summary: Samsung laser printers have typically offered copies in the 2.5 cent range from a 3,000 copy cartridge making them very competitive. But, with this model, Samsung uses a 1,500 copy cartridge selling for $$60 resulting in a cost per copy of 4.0 cents.
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.
Summary: I have had this printer for about a year and a half. I print infrequently, and I often had trouble with inkjet cartridges/print heads getting so gummed up that I could never get them working again. This was on sale at the time, so I thought I would make the switch to a laser printer.
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).
