Summary: I usually purchase from Amazon for the free shipping, peace of mind and competitive price but I found this printer on another site at a ridiculously low closeout price. Took a risk and it arrived in one piece and as advertised. I replaced a Brother 2140 that was misfeeding paper when printing. The Brother performed well for quite a few years and gets fairly regular use. No complaints. I also had a Samsung and OKI laser prior to this. No complaints here either.
Summary: It works well and prints fast. The only problem I have had is that sometimes it disconnects from the wi fi and I have to unplug it and then plug it back in (which sometimes it looses the document it was in the middle of printing). Also I could not get it to connect to my desk top computer, but since it sits next to it and I can just plug it in that is not a big concern for me.
Bought the FD model at Fry's Electronics, this is far superior to the Brother machines I have owned.

Summary: No I did not buy it at Amazon.com, sorry. The FD has everything the wireless version has sans wireless of course. I used the online software and driver downloads from Samsung to install the unit. I had one laptop that I had to reinstall the printer on and that was not a windows 8 machine. It was on a windows 7 laptop which has been known to reject some hardware installs anyway. I was not surprised by that initial failure.
Summary: The printer copier works great. We love being able to scan and copy as well as print. The problem came when we tried to set up the fax. We followed all the directions and even sat online with tech support for a long time, but could never get it to work. Luckily we can email most things we need.
Summary: Recently had to replace my beloved Samsung SCX 4521F multifunction printer in my home office due to some repair parts not being available as the printer is no longer being manufactured. This M2870FW seems to be a worthy replacement as it prints very well, uses less power to operate and takes up less counter space as the other. There is not an after market cartridge available (yet) so the per page printing cost is a little higher than before but isn't too bad I guess.
