Do Not Get This Printer!

Anonymous, Newegg
12 February 2009
  • Summary: I'm having the same problem that others are experiencing where the left side of the print is faded. We just replaced the toner @ $200 and still have the same problem. I tried cleaning it with a can of compressed air and shaking the toner cartridges as recommended on the Samsung site but nothing will...
  • Pros: In the store this seems like is was too good to be true. It was. A color laser printer for less than $300?! WOW! You bet I got it, and ran. It seemed fine for several months but then the toner ran out.
  • Cons: It costs, get ready for it, over $200 to replace the toner!!!

Very Happy

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I got the non networked printer a year ago which new egg no longer carries. This is the identical printer with an on board Ethernet NIC
  • Pros: Quicker than lesser expensive options with much better image quality. Actually a bit faster with much better image quality than some of the higher priced options. Install is a breeze and so is swapping out toner cartridges. Easy to use software preferences. Works with W2k sp4, XP sp1,2,3 Vista sp...
  • Cons: Occasional paper jam when there is less than 3 sheets left in the paper tray. Can not handle heavier stock than normal weight. Has issues with Ubuntu and DSL linux.

Total Junk

Anonymous, Newegg
19 January 2009
  • Summary: Avoid...save your money. Buy an HP or Brother. This thing is total garbage.
  • Pros: Nice color output, very professional grade color blending. Pictures look nice, doesn't seem to fade as quickly as ink jet prints.
  • Cons: JAM, JAM, JAM. CHEAP. CHEAP. CHEAP Unlike Mr "Never Jam's" below, this thing jams on nearly all pages. I have only ran 1800 pages through mine in over one year since buying.. This thing has been in the shop 3 times, once under warranty to replace a part that took 2 months to get from China.

Some guys have all the Luck

Justin K., Newegg

  • Summary: This printer is pricey, now. I paid one hundred twenty eight bucks for it after rebates. The new "black colored" CLP 315 or something has the same specs (I just want to know if it takes the same toner). Perhaps this printer jams up on people that are cycling a buttload of paper through it.
  • Pros: Some of you sound like you got burned with this product... However, this guy has been running like a champ for over a year now. I have printed a LOT of pages off this little guy and NEVER replaced a toner cartridge yet. Honestly, I've cycled a couple thousand pages through it. I don't understand ...
  • Cons: None, save for the fact that she will not respond if she's been sitting idle for a couple days. This only happens rarely, and requires a hard reset. I had no driver issues. I recommend downloading the latest drivers directly from Samsung's site. I installed this bad boy on a Windows x64 network.

Great printer

Joel D., Newegg
3 December 2008
  • Summary: The right kind of paper makes a difference. Try a lot of different kinds, in different weights and brightness. If you have a network in your home or office, networking a printer is much more flexible. Just stick it by your router or connect to any ethernet port.
  • Pros: This is my fourth Samsung CLP-300 series printer, 2 regular and 2 network version. I guess I like 'em. For the price, it's a great little color laser printer. Even photos are half-way decent, regular graphics are stunning. If you really want to do high-quality photo prints, inkjet is the way to g...
  • Cons: This printer doesn't do well with card stock or anything heavier than 24-pound paper, even though it says it can take it. Experienced mostly jams with heavier paper.

User Review

Victor E., Newegg
15 April 2008
  • Summary: overall it's ok. but not worth it if the quality is really what it's about.
  • Pros: Small, easy install, networked, pretty quiet.
  • Cons: print quality isn't the best, but if you were aiming for the best print quality, then you would really buy this. does paper jam from time to time. don't like the paper cassette it feels flimsy. Should really be integrated to the footprint, instead of increasing the foot print. paper capacity only...
