I'm sure it would be great if it would print.

  • Summary: Very disappointed in Samsung on this one. This is the first time I've ever bought an inferior product from them.
  • Pros: Price Scanner Software that does it's job and doesn't bloat up your HDD
  • Cons: The thing won't print. I haven't been able to print a page yet, and I've had it almost a month. There's something wrong with the pickup mechanism.

  • Summary: I have a great deal of Samsung's products, and fortunately, never needed repair. THIS IS BAD. Samsung you lost me as a consumer and all the people that contact this OLD Retired General Motors Engineer.
  • Pros: Can't think of any.
  • Cons: I bought this with an extended warranty (Never Again). First it stopped working with WiFi, then Ethernet, and finally USB. I called Newegg (Great People to do business with), and they told me I needed to call Samsung. I did received a RMA and Shipping label.

  • Summary: Considering the cheap price, took a gamble that it'd work well with Linux - lost this hand.
  • Pros: Cheap Comes with USB cable
  • Cons: No network fax capability with linux. Network Scanning with linux will sometimes bug out, requiring a power reset of the printer. Once this happens, even USB scanning will not work. No Scan to Network Computer if using Linux. No Fax to Network PC if using Linux

Almost great

  • Summary: We purchased one of these due to feeder problems and lack of SSL for smtp (required to work with GMail) on the Canon D1170 machines. It has a beautiful color touchscreen and the feeder didn't have the misfeed problems that our Canon D1170s do. Unfortunately the firmware randomly chokes when scanning more than 20 pages or successive small scan jobs to either SMB or smtp. The freezing occurs with pdf or tiff documents.
