Excerpt: selected this printer because of a previous great experience with a Samsung printer. This printer has given us nothing but trouble... it kept saying that there was an issue with the connection between the printer and the PC.... took the PC to best buy several times, thinking it was the PC, and they would uninstall and reinstall the printer software and it would get fix momentarily... when I brought it home, same issue again..
Summary: Got this to replace an old HP multi-function laser printer when the firmware board had died. This Samsung has had problems since the first couple weeks. The primary issue is that I get an intermittent error code, #U1-234H Fuser Error, which shuts down the printer and requires turning the power back on. The error had become much more regular and now will no longer print. Samsung support has not been helpful.
Samsung Printer Driver Not fully Compatible with Windows 8
19 October 2013
Summary: Let me state up front that this is a wonderful printer, built very well and with great printing quality. And this what makes it all the more tragic for me to be forced to return it because Samsung failed to create printer drivers which are fully compatible with Windows 8. I have a home network with three computers on it, two of which are running Windows 7 64x and one laptop that runs Windows 8, 64x.
Summary: I am very disappointed in this printer. Initially, set up was quick and printing was fine. But when I went to scan, no luck. It turns out it is NOT MAC COMPATIBLE. You'd have thought that info would be front and center. Some online sites suggested using the Preview function and then getting the scan file from that, but that did not work for me. So I abandoned the notion of scanning. Then the printer stopped working.
Summary: This review is for a Samsung SL-M2875FD/XAC Wireless Monochrome Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax; not what it says above. Condition: New Sold by: Amazon.com LLC. The FD is not wireless, the FW is. Amazon has used the same copy for both items. My return label still says "wireless". Very frustrating experience.
Summary: I bought this machine at Staples. I used reviews from Amazon as a justification to buy it. Apparently, it's not that simple. If you have a Windows 8, you may be in trouble. The installation is a nightmare. Pieces of software are missing, drivers don't work. I finally managed to make printing work, but scanning will not. Perhaps this all-in-one printer will work fine with some setups. But my 3 new Windows 8 boxes would not work with it.
Summary: I was trying to print business cards using [competitor's] brand inkjet business card paper and the machine kept jamming. I tried all of the tricks suggested online (e.g., placing the cardstock on top of ~25 sheets of plain paper to help it feed through), but it would not work. I have had more problems with this machine than with any other printer I've owned.
Summary: It was on sale and I thought its a pretty good deal but I was wrong! It jams a lot! by a lot, i mean every three, four pages. JAMMED IN THE MACHINE, JAMMED AT THE TRAY... this pop out dozen times when i try to print a document contains 20 pages.
