Replacement Samsung CLP-300 Color Laser Printer works perfect, flawlessly!!
9 June 2013
Summary: I purchased this CLP-300 to replace one that I purchased new 5 years ago. Even though this printer does not have built-in Wifi connectivity, I was able to first find a Linksys wireless print server compatible win Windows XP. After I switched to Windows 7, 64 bit PC's, I was to find Win 7 compatible wireless print server. The CLP-300 that I puchased on eBay is working perfectly.
Summary: Wanted a color laser printer to replace inkjet that was always going dry from infrequent use. The Samsung clp 300 fill the bill. I am able to get all 4 color cartridges for less than ink jet cartridges.
Summary: I bought this printer as an upgrade from my ink-jet which I was using to print fliers. I am saving a lot of money using a laser printer. I love this printer it is very compact, I bought mine refurbished and I have no problems already put a couple thousand pages through it with no problems.
Pros: Printed over 5000 pages using generic and orginal cartridges never a problem page count is 5320 pages with 0 jams prints about 1500 pages per set of cartridges. fast reliable small convenient and never a problem.
Cons: Cartridge the originals ones are expensive paid 80 for the printer brand new cartridge are about 220 for a full set. you can get generic but lower page yield
Pros: Decent color, clean B&W, relatively inexpensive toner, especially if you use non-OEM toner.
Cons: The drum is only good for about 20000 pages. It's almost cheaper to replace the whole printer than to replace the drum, even at normal retail prices, and I've seen these printers for sale (remanufactured) for less than the cost of a new drum.
Summary: I don't know what everyone is griping about!! This printer is great (especially for the money). I just bought it a few weeks ago and the quality is equal to or better than my old inkjet printer, a Lexmark 1300 Series. I expect that I will have to replace the Waste Toner container around the same time my cartridges go empty, but this is not a big deal, as I can shop around.
