Summary: Printer is fine . . . when it works. I get a 'Jam or Empty Door' message for nearly half of all print jobs I send. No jams, paper full. This forces me to remove all paper from the tray, put it back, then open the cover to reset the printer. Sometimes this fixes the problem, sometimes it doesn't. It's a big game to figure out what will work from one occurrence to the next. Annoying. The frequency of this issue has increased over the past couple months. Scanning is fine.
Summary: Bought this for my father. Bad manual. Installation materials didn't mention Styrofoam shipping spacers lodged deep in the machine. Control panel is too small to read. A little flimsy, cheap plastic. No paper manual. Jury's still out.
Summary: Very easy set up EXCEPT the wireless. I was not able to utilize the included disk to connect the wireless feature. I can still use it with the USB cable but, really, this was one of the main features! Great price for this item.
Small and compact but network software is very flaky

Summary: I like the physical compactness but I have had to repeatedly re-install the network connection software. Somehow it keeps going out of sync. The user documentation is basically useless as it does not address network connectivity issues at all. I have still not been able to reliably get two computers working with the printer -- it seems to work with one at a time but on installation of the second computer - there are problems with the first one losing printer access even...
buy an additional cartridge now, so you dont get screwed later.

Summary: Great unit, but the software stinks to use....... I use it wireless and it works fine for my needs of printing with occasional scanning. Replacement cartridge is not cheap when in a pinch and shopping local, so I advise yo to also purchase a replacement cartridge now so so you don't get pissed later. I would consider buying again..... really came down to price, reviews, and features..... it was the winner at the time of purchase.
Summary: (would have given 1-1.5 more stars if not for the toner issue-don't like companys that prevent you from buying aftermarket toner) PROS * great price $120 *paper tray is just an open space in front so it is very easy to add paper (without removing a tray) and to add manual paper-YOU JUST PUT THE PAPER/labels IN AND THAT'S IT--GREAT DESIGN--for home/small business. *small profile and not to high *quick wake up-quick response and ppm.
Summary: This is a good printer when it is working and connected. I thought this was a good printer value for the price but once I got it home I realized it was not very user friendly. I bought this printer to replace my 2yr old Lexmark inkjet wifi printer that stopped staying connected to our laptops as well. The Lexmark 3200 inkjet all in one I had was easy to do PDF scans.
Summary: Overall, the printer worked as advertised. It was, contrary to many reviews, quite easy to install and setup the wi-fi access to assorted paraphernalia (macbook air, old samsung tablet 10.1, smartphone). However, as far as speed requirements over wifi, it's a bit lacking. From the PC, connected via usb 2.0, the printer does as advertised. From the macbook air using wifi to print, while it was a bit slower, it came very close to matching the "wired" PC.
Summary: I replaced a Brother printer that developed an annoying noise after five years with this Samsung machine which is not nearly as easy to use and seems far more fragile. However, it does perform all its functions and is well recommended by Consumer Reports.
