Summary: As far as a printer/copier goes -- this machine has worked flawlessly but.. I have experienced and have also seen other postings online about how the document scanner and scans produce "noticeably" crooked documents.. I have rescanned in bulk documents several times with the auto feeder and experience the same "crooked" PDF files... Even using the flatbed scanner -- the documents come out "crooked." Machine would have gotten a higher rating from me but for this issue...
Avoid if you print check stock, otherwise a great machine.

Summary: This is a great price, especially for all the functions that I wanted. Set up was very easy, scan and copy looks good and printing does too. BUT... the manual feed tray only allows one sheet of paper in it. And the primary tray requires pages to be upside down and in reverse order (prints on the underneath of the sheet as it lays in the tray). Especially if you print stacks of checks (QuickBooks, Sage 50, etc) I would avoid this machine.
Summary: Pros: Small, FAST to warm up/print, good quality prints, Inexpensive Cons: -No "scan to email" function. Everything scans to a file in a folder which you then have to attach to an email. Brother machines have a "scan to email" function that allows you with one button press to scan a document and have an email open up with the document attached. -Scanning a document requires 6 button presses every time. First you have to wake the machine.
Wouldn't network, and tech support couldn't solve it.

Summary: We decided to switch back to a laser (after about 15 years) after becoming thoroughly disgusted with ink supplies. Dry toner doesn't dry out and doesn't clog. WHY WE SELECTED THIS ONE: Price was a big factor. It's competitive with the ink jet units we might have otherwise considered. But an even bigger factor with its networking features.
Decent Machine but Terrible Inconvenience when trying to scan multi-page pdf's!

Summary: I purchased this multifunction machine under the premise it would do everything my old Cannon machine would do with added benefits. Although it does everything my old machine did, it is not as simple to operate. For example, I scan a great deal of documents into pdf files (both as single & multipage documents). Using the scan software on my computer using my old machine there was a drop down box asking whether I would like to scan documents into single or multipage pdfs.
Summary: I purchased this primarily as a scanner. I've not tried to scan and don't know if I ever will. PROS: scans and copies are clear an include several options. CONS: networking with multiple computers (so that my wife can scan her projects directly to her computer) isn't particularly smooth. Expect to spend some time on it. Also, for an unknown reason, the scanner will occasionally "lose" my computer when I attempt to scan to the computer using the scanner's interface.
Summary: I'm quite happy with the printer hardware. But I had a devil of a time getting it working. The drivers and Samsung support need a lot of improvement! The instructions that came with it told me to download drivers from Samsung's web site. OK. The PDF manual also gave instructions on how to install the drivers. Unfortunately they didn't match the install process AT ALL. For example step 5 says "Double click cdroot > autorun". There is no such thing to click.
Summary: It's true that this is NOT the wireless version, despite what the title says. There is a wireless version, but this is not it. You can get around the lack of wireless support for the printer by connecting the printer to a wireless hub, such as an Apple Airport Express. That actually works beautifully, and it's what I did once I realized I'd gotten the non-wireless version.
