Was OK until failed

  • Summary: I purchased this printer about 6 month ago and at the time of this writing cartridge was still 90 % full. Suddenly it started jamming paper and no matter what I tried I couldn’t fixed it. So, a support call with Samsung was opened and one week later technician came. He found that the pinion on the cartridge got broken and that was preventing paper to be fed into the cartridge. They consider cartridge to be a consumable item with no warranty what so ever.

It's not all "beer and skittles"

  • Summary: I pretty much agree with other commentators; it's a good all-purpose machine once you get it working, you can't go far wrong. BUT: the software is ghastly, and the instructions are so brief as to be non-existent. I ended up with two different printer driver installations on my PC at one time, 3 scanner drivers at once, no human-scanner interface (it's a separate package downloadable from their website, and it takes awhile to figure out you really need it), several pieces...

Good workhorse and easy on the budget

  • Summary: This machine is light-years ahead of what could have been purchased for this price even a few years ago. While it may be a little too bulky for desktop use, Samsung has packed functionality into every cubic inch. It does what it claims to do, and does it pretty well. The monochromatic print quality, and double sided print feature are just as good, although not nearly as fast, as some of the much costlier industrial machines.

Gute Hardware und Leistung, aber Kunden-Entmündigung durch Firmware!

  • Summary: Eigentlich kann das Gerät alles, was es verspricht! Ich bin mit Scanleistung, Scan-Geschwindigkeit, Druckqualität sehr zufrieden, Papierstau gabs noch nie. Auch Aufwärmen nach dem StandBy geht rasch, wenn man schnell etwas kopieren muss. Die Software zeigte bei mir keine Bugs, jedoch bin ich etwas verwundert wieviele Tools und Dienste da laufen müssen (Treiber, EasyPrinter Manager, AnyWebPrint,...).

Papierloses Büro?

  • Summary: Ein ideales Gerät für den privaten und Business-Gebrauch, wenn man auf Farbe verzichten kann. Eine neue Druckeer-Generation, die man sich auch für Color-Druck wünscht.

Druck und Scan OK, fax nicht, Bedienungsanleitung NOK

Thierry, Amazon

  • Summary: Bei uns ist der SCX4729FD via USB an Win7-64 angeschlossen, und damit erstmal eingerichtet worden (eigentlich nur Netzwerk-Einstellungen und Fax). Druck, Scan und Kopien funktionieren (und sind qualitativ OK, aber wir können nicht mit andere neue Geräte vergleichen). Im Hausnetz sind noch 2 PCs, 1 mit XP (Druck und Scan OK) und Ubuntu (Druck OK, Scan nicht probiert), und 1 mit Ubuntu (Druck NOK).
