Excerpt: Yeah, this printer’s pretty good for a year or so… then it starts falling apart. When i first bought it, it looked much better quality than the printers i had previously purchased. And sure enough, when i got home and set it up, it printed smoothly, scanned …
Summary: Adding a USB printing cable hurts the bottom line so much? really?
Pros: Good printing quality, long lasting starter cartridge (reportedly for 1000 pages, still going strong on page 1300). Linux drivers! Excellent performance for light or medium use (printing research papers and the like). Fairly decent photocopying... a good cheap-o Jack of all Trades
Cons: Printer heats up quite a bit on heavy printing, Linux driver lacks all the functionality of the Windoze (when will companies stop treating Linux as a second rate OS) and if you use low quality paper you'll get a lot of paper jams.
Summary: I know that the paper must take a sharp turn in there somewhere, and I guess there is no other way in unit that is this small. It hasn't jammed on me once, and i've probably printed 150-200 pages. Overall, very satisfied. ANd to top if off, I got free shipping:) Thanks Newegg!!
Pros: Cheap little printer, esp. when you catch it on sale. Pretty good print speeds, very nice scanner. Makes copies pretty well.
Cons: Still don't understand why any printer manufacturers don't send the USB A to B cable with their printers, because you know, that might make sense... but that aside, I have encountered absolutely no problems with this MFP.
Summary: If you need something reliable, don't get this printer.
Pros: Cheap. Small.
Cons: Garbage. This unit broke after about 2 weeks of use. And before it officially broke, it would constantly jam paper. If you're printing one sheet at a time, great. Printing multiple pages...be prepared for constant jamming. Finally, one time it jammed, I got the page out, but the sensor keeps sayi...
Summary: I use it with XP, and my partner uses it with Ubuntu on two separate computer through a manual USB switch. I think this is a great bargain for a light-use home laser printer.
Pros: Easy to set up on my XP SP2 system. I am a light printer user and have used this unit for over a year with no problems whatsoever. Still on the starter toner, but all my printouts are clean and crisp with no streaking or spotting. I have never had a paper jam or feeder problem. Scanner software s...
Cons: Don't forget to buy a USB A/B cable, as it isn't included.
Summary: First, for whatever reason, it ships with only a "starter" cartridge; your toner "use" will decline with a new, full cartridge. I had a unit that wouldn't make the 180 after exiting the toner/fuser assembly to the output tray; I agree Samsung's online system isn't very good, but their actual,...
Pros: Sweet little machine. Great print quality. Does everything I could ask of it. Supporting s/w is good, good integration w/ Office/other products and character recognition s/w is great.
Cons: Ugly? The print console s/w (memory-hungry) wants to self-install as a startup item every time I print; annoying. Also see comments.
Cons: The unit I received broke after 5 uses. Around the 5th time I used the printer, I started getting printouts that were completely covered in toner. I thought it was a toner cartridge problem and spent an additional $80 on a new toner. That didn't fix the problem and I started getting paper jams th...
