Good paper feeding and features even for a large office...
19 February 2015
Summary: This Samsung Multifunction Xpress M2875FW can be a good fit as either a heavy-duty personal MFP or a shared printer in a micro or small office or workgroup. Pros: + Prints, scans, faxes, copies. + Duplex (two-sided) printing. + Automatic document feeder. + Ethernet. Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi Direct.
Summary: I am thinking about buying another one of these at this great price and storing it for whenever I need to replace my current printer. So far this Samsung printer has been a dream!
Pros: Reliable printer that prints clear, and is still working 9 months later
Cons: Sometimes loses connection to wifi, usually requires setting up the wifi configuration from scratch when this happens. Annoying when I need to print something right away, but not a huge deal. The PRO's on this printer seriously outweigh this one minor issue.
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.
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).
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.
Summary: I use it on Eco mode to save toner, but it also always want to default to print 2 pages per sheet which I find annoying. If I cannot change the default I will try without Eco.
Pros: The printer works, it is fast quiet and quite simple.
Cons: It uses way to much power. It is rated at 400W, but my backup power kicks it when it prints. I used a Killawat and found that it pulls 1000-1200W when printing, way more than the stated 400 and is best used on it's own circuit which I don't have.
