Summary: I purchased this combination scanner, copier, fax after having previously purchased a ScanSnap S1300i which was more expensive but jammed or misfed 9 out of 10 sheets, totally useless. For the money, this unit is a great buy for the money. Pros: 1) Reliable and works great 2) Windows and Linux drivers work 3) Samsung Mobile print app works great via Ethernet or Wifi connection.
Summary: The second printer that I received obviously had been used before. The toner cartridge only had 93% of the toner left and the wireless settings had already been configured to use WPS setups. I tried numerous times to configure it manually and each time was a failure. It wasn't until I flashed the ROM memory that the printer began to work. The software disk was different than the first printer and configured differently even though the model numbers was the same.
Pros: To begin with this printer being a refurbished printer you don't necessarily know what you are getting as I have listed in the Cons section below. I purchased two of these printers because at $65.00 you can't beat the price for a laser printer.
Cons: The paper sits in a open slot that sticks out in front of the printer. You adjust the paper width by sliding this plastic piece over to the right. It is very flimsy and feels like it could easily be broken.
Summary: I bought this printer from Amazon at the same price point that Wal-Mart sells the same model without FAX or ADF. Setting up a wireless connection was a snap using WPS (requires compatible router). I have only had one jam which was easily cleared. My only real complaint is that refilled carts are expensive compared to other mf lasers in this price range. I'm hoping that will change by the time the starter cartridge is used up.
Summary: Printer works as expected. No complaints, very fast. I hardwired to router and gave printer a static IP. I then setup PC w/ network printer setup using the IP. This will allow you to print wirelessly. More dependable connection. Printer is a very good price and compact. One con is the control panel buttons and screen are small, really not a big deal after setup. Overall pleased with purchase.
Summary: Great value for home user. Color is not everything, if you want to save money. Delete your old printer program and install SAMSUNG Wi-Fi or cable with no issue. Beware that if you have DELL DOCK, re-install after printer program delete to avoid any printer install issues. Dual side copy done manually non issue, unless you pay somebody to do it. Printer is great as shipped and would not bother to change factory settings.
Easy to install but needs manual adjustment for MAC OSX
My first Toshiba product (ex Sony), Amazon
23 September 2013
Summary: Received the printer in time as promised. Price was 2nd best price on Amazon. The printer is easy to install, however need to mess around a little to make it work with MAC OSX using wireless. With USB cable it works on the first try. Most of the instructions are for Windows PC but if you have used OSX, no big deal, you can figure it out. After install go to printer utility and remove the installed printer (as it shows connected to USB and offline).
Summary: nice small size and cheap. Had the thing going in about 15mins after opening the box. Plug and play works perfect. LCD display is a bit diffcult to read though. Software was installed without a problem. Be sure to remove all protection in and outside the printer. I forgot to remove some protection foams inside where the toner is and it wont work then of course. So far so good. Expect the pre-installed toner to run out some time soon since it isnt a fully charged one.

Summary: I used to be quite the snob when it came to printers... Canon's & Brother's were my models of choice. However I kept seeing a Samsung multi-function model in various stores. I eventually went out and looked them over and finally I bought a Samsung SCX-3405W for about $100 with money I received from Christmas last year 2012. I set up the printer via USB2.0 cable to my Dual Band Router ( which has a USB2.0 port ) so the printer could be used anywhere within my Home LAN.
