Summary: I PURCHASED THIS ITEM FROM ARSENAL PC. FOR ALMOST 500 DOLLARS I PURCHASED WHAT WAS ADVERTISED AS AND SUPPOSED TO BE A WIRELESS PRINTER. WHEN WE TOOK IT OUT OF THE BOX, THE WIRELESS VERSION OF THE PRINTER HAD BEEN REPLACED (THE BOX WAS NOT SEALED) WITH A NON-WIRELESS VERSION OF THE SAME PRINTER.
Summary: Like some of the other reviews - this product soon turns from wireless to wired as it loses the connection intermittantly despite being 1 meter from my pc and router. Recently, it stopped printing, returning instead an error - "LSU Hsync err. cycle power" - turns out its the Laser Scanning Unit!! - and it wont print even though im not scanning - cost of repair - £245 plus VAT!!!
Summary: Right out of the box, set up was a snap. Insert cd into computer, hit install, and the machine did the rest. In my home, we have about 6 computers printing on this workhorse. Replacement laser cartrig's are bought on line for a fraction of the samsung brand. Saving my family lots of dough! Quite, easy to use, pretty, functional. UPDATE!!! ... Phone Service~ is the best ever!
Samsung SCX-4500W works great with all operating systems

Summary: Despite some negative remarks, Samsung SCX-4500W is one of the best printers, especially if you want to replace your old inc cartridge printer. Pros: - Works with all major operating systems: Windows ( 7, Vista, XP), Mac OSX and Linux ( Ubuntu, Fedora etc). Drivers with Windows 7 Enterprise install automatically. - Very compact All-in-One printer, scanner, copier. - Extremely economical: best for replacement your old expensive ink-cartridge printers.
Summary: Stylish and fast, this printer replaced my old HP 2200d Laserjet and it really makes my HP seem obsolete. It is much quieter and half the size. The wireless setup was a snap. The scanner works great although it lacks some of the image control of my Epson. This printer what all modern printers should look, sound and perform like.
Summary: I had been happy for a while with this printer. Although one needs to be somewhat tech savvy to set this printer up initially, it works as advertised. Like I said INITIALLY. I moved my apartment and took the printer with me. Now the little blue wireless icon never lights up when it is supposed to, thereby causing the printer to work only in the wired mode i.e. the printer needs to be wired to the router with an ethernet cable. I would have still given a 4 star.
Summary: I concur with all the negative reviews. I will take it one step further than dismay with this product...I am disgusted with the corporate attitude toward consumers. I purchased my unit through the Apple store, for my Mac, an OSX 10.5.8. I have spent a week now trying to get this thing to work. My workspace is wireless. As the other reviews stated, the button says scan to PC and that is what it means.
Broken misled in discription does not scan and originally listed as wireless
Paul Schwartzmeyer, Amazon

Summary: This was writen up originally as wireless then turns out it wasn't also the package was very ragged and the post office marked it as to say it wasn't them then when I tried to use it there was no disk for the drivers the scanner part twitched and did not work and there was paper that was jammed in it.
Summary: i don't know why everybody is complaining about setup. at least in snow leopard you don't need anything. the driver comes preinstalled on 10.6x. i never even opened the cd cover. connect x-over cable, add printer, go to option/supplies, click on Show Printer Webpage, network settings, wireless wizard, choose from ssid list, provide password, disconnect x-ver cable. that's it. oh yeah, that scans as well ..... over the (wireless) network. i am trilled with my unit.
