Summary: I ordred this printer because it is the same one that I have that quit working. I didn't want to get rid of the ink I had already so I purchased a new one. It works some of the time and sometimes it seems to have problems.
Summary: I have owned this printer since 2004 and have had nothing but good experiences with it until recently. I'm just now shopping for its replacement--not because it has died, but because its OS X support seems to have met its end with the release of Snow Leopard. Samsung has always had marginal support for Apple computers (indeed, even getting the 10.4/10.5 driver involves Google, since the Samsung USA website pretends that there is no Mac support at all), but while it...
Pros: It works fine for all other printing jobs, except printing envelopes
Cons: Iit prints terribly light on envelopes, that remains unacceptable. i spent so much time with the samsung customer service, and they only referred me to go to a printer repair shop and get it fixed!! rather, i would throw it out and get a new one!!
Summary: I bought one of these printers for my mother. It works fine most of the time, but once in a while it produces a nasty paper jam. The last time I had to remove the cover (which required removing four screws) and using a screwdriver to rotate the wheel that moves the paper through. Big pain. But it's far more economical than the color inkjet it replaced.
Summary: If you are looking for a small laser printer for home or small business, this is the one to buy. I owned mine for nearly 3 years now. I print around 20 pages/week. So far I am still using the toner that came with the printer 3 years ago with no problem whatsoever. Never had an issues of any kind. Buttom line, spend a $130 on this printer, and you will not regret it.
No frills printer does the job--it is a workhorse!

Summary: Dirty little secret--manufacturers sell printers in order to make money on ink. Ever wonder why they give away free printers with computer packages? I bought this printer for home business use. I print approximately 50 pages per day, but have printed several hundred a day using this printer. Use the toner save option. You can get close to 2000 copies with one cartridge.
