Summary: Every time this thing enters sleep mode it completely shuts down. The only way to get it to work again is to uninstall it and re-install it. What a joke! I thought this was a safe purchase because I previously bought a black & white Brother printer and I love it. Just goes to show you, you can't trust company brands. I strongly recommend NOT buying this print.
Summary: When an older and very expensive HP inkjet gave up the ghost I put this in its place. Setup was easy. I honestly can't remember if I made this a wired Ethernet printer or if I just put it on the Wifi network. Probably WiFi given the location of it, and lack of ethernet ports there. You know what's awesome about that? I don't even know, because nobody's had a problem with it. I never have to look at the thing.
Summary: I looked long and hard before buying a color printer. Inkjets are now out of the question due to the changes made to them in recent years regarding the cartridges. Why should anyone have to change all the cartridges because one ran out? It's a money making scheme for the printer companies and I will not be a part of it. So I looked at a bunch of laser jet printers. Some were out of the question because of the prices, or toner cartridge issues, or bad reviews.
Summary: Do you have a location that needs a machine that can handle usage by a diverse group of users? This is the machine for you. It will wow you. The installation is simple and once in place it just needs toner or drums from time to time.
Summary: I had been procrastinating about getting another cololr laser printer for my home network. We were using a Dell wireless printer that printed when it felt like it. It would go to sleep and no wake up with a print request. Thus requiring us to unplug it and replug it every time. What a pain. This printer hasn't skipped a beat since we purchased it. It is a great price and offer dependable, quality printer that fits my needs perfectly.
Summary: For a low-cost printer with a relatively small footprint, it performs better than the $2,000 printer that I replaced. The only drawback is that the supply costs for color are greater than for my previous printer. I have addressed that by selecting black in lieu of color when color is in something I download is not really necessary..
Summary: I love this machine, just be sure to use the correct plug in for wireless or USB. I could not get it to work and then after several frustrating days, I discovered that I was trying to use the wireless port instead of the USB port that I needed. It doesn't work well at all on the wrong port, the computer will not find it! I have not had the machine very long so can't comment on how long the toner will last or long term usage. I'm happy with my selection so far though.
Summary: I replaced a black and white personal Samsung laser printer I bought in 2005 with this one 3 months ago. Not that there was anything wrong the B&W one, but my son wanted to print in color, and I had long since tossed all of my "cheap" inkjet printers. The printer does work great, and I'm glad color laser printers have come down in price to make them a very good value compared to an inkjet printers.
Good printer - networkable but not wireless - there is a solution for toner use!

Summary: This is a good printer for the money. I'm pleased with the quality of text, and the quality when using "toner save mode." I teach as an adjunct professor (i.e., part-time) in a graduate program, and do a lot of printing of handouts, Keynotes, worksheets, and such, for students. So, I want a decent, readable quality of print. I'm not doing true desktop publishing, so I can't say how it works for that.
