Summary: The first thing I noticed was that this printer came with a separate panel you can add if you want the printer instructions in a different language. I'm guessing this is Spanish since many of the repair centers for Samsung are in South American but perhaps it's French as the warranty card booklet also has options for Canadians and since I read very little Spanish and less French.... it says Departe for Start... if that helps.
Summary: as I've been having troubles setting up printers lately that this one was the easiest of them all, not sure that matters, just an observation. It works well, the ink flows well, it scans and prints well... so far no problems and so far I haven't needed to buy ink, but I'm not really using it madly... I can update this review after I've bought ink to see how that goes.
Summary: I was very excited to receive this Samsung printer/copy and fax combo. It was something that I needed for a long time and I just love any and everything made by Samsung. I must say that this was packaged very well...no pieces were loose and the printer itself was very compact and after getting all the tape and cardboard removed it slid right out the box. It came with a quick set up guide....which in my opinion was far from simple.
Summary: This printer gets good reviews here and I want to relate my recent out of box experience on a mac. (may be similar with PC) Though I am technically literate I find this printer jumbled and confusing to setup and use. Put in the cd, and stumble your way to the right icon to click on and hope it was the the right one. I did not do the "USB setup method" as it just seemed silly in this age of find the SSID and enter the wireless passkey wala it connects.
Nice Samsung multifunction printer/scanner/copier/fax with wireless features

Summary: This Samsung multifunction printer/copier/scanner/fax offers a lot of great features at a reasonable price. It was easy to set up out of the box and it shouldn't be hard to have it connected wirelessly to your computer network or mobile devices. It comes with both a USB connection and wireless transmission. I did find that it came shipped with the paper tray not set in position for standard paper size, so if you don't realign it you'll get papers jamming.
Summary: I got this to do printing for Scouts because my home printer was going thru black ink like water (and that was not cheap). Since I don't need color for what I print, the monochrome is perfect. Installation wasn't too bad, but I'm not a big fan of their instructions. I'm glad I know a little something about electronics otherwise installation may have proved to be a bit more difficult. Samsung customer service was helpful when I did I have a question.
Awesome, other than printing envelopes on a Mac, and two-step duplex scanning

Summary: I CANNOT get this thing to print envelopes correctly. It always starts printing on the last inch of the envelope (using Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac, and also tried Envelopes for Google Docs), so you only get an inch of misplaced text. (Edit: the manufacturer pointed out in a reply to my post that the printer only prints to certain sizes of envelopes, and provided a list of the supported envelope sizes. I was trying to print to No.
Summary: I have only had this unit for one day, but I do like it! At $203 with free shipping, it was a definite steal. However, I noticed it's back up to $249 again. Buying stuff on Amazon is like the stock market sometimes. The print quality is excellent and FAST, even for photographs. Yes it only prints in monochrome, but the photo print quality is surprisingly crisp. The printer is also very quiet. The scan quality (which is color) is also very crisp.
Summary: . They got a lot of things right. Compared to the Brother MFC-7860DW , this Samsung has some advantages (see below). Supply costs are a disadvantage. Samsung's proprietary, chip-protected supplies are about 20% more expensive per page than Brother supplies. Third party toner is not currently available. It could cost you an extra $100 to $1000+ over the years (see below). PROs: * Feature rich. Seems well thought out and well engineered. No problems yet.
Summary: I have to say that, hands down, this produces the clearest, sharpest, most professional looking documents of any printer I've ever had. The scanner function is also top quality. I scanned some very old b/w family photos with absolute clarity. We operate an in home preschool/daycare & have a lot of items we copy for use in our study program as well as a monthly newsletter. When we passed out this months newsletter all the parents remarked at how nice the newsleter looks.
