Decent printer, small footprint, the paper jam IS fixable

Alchemist, Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: I really needed a color laser printer, but did not have the space for a large one. There are only two laser printers on the market that will fit on a bookshelf, and at the time I bought this one, this was the only one. It does a decent enough job for medium duty work, although (manual) duplex printing can get kind of tricky, especially with more than 20-30 pages (I recommend doing it in batches of 10-20 pages).

Great printer, but has issues

acm12, Ebay
30 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this refurbished Samsung CLP-315 printer for my elderly parents. Their inkjets were burning though toner, so I thought a laser printer would be more likely to last a long time between toner cartridge replacement. As a printer, it's fine. Clear, sharp text and bright colors. Fast, too. But the manual (one-sheet of printed paper and a PDF booklet on the CD) is not easy to make sense of with regard to wireless configuration.

Budget wireless, with some kinks

eyork2m8p, Ebay
3 December 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Price: this proce really can't be beat for a full color, built-in wireless networking, laser printer. i bought my first laser printer about 4 years ago (an HP 1600) for about $350.00, and it didn't have wireless Quality: Quality is close to as good as the HP. Plenty for what you expect from a laser printer. Not photo quality, but tri-folds, graphics, etc, are fine. Also, it is pretty quiet. Install: Turned out to be super easy.

Horrible Set Up

Christopher Field "ucla tennis team", Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: I had the previous version of this printer, the CLP-300, and it worked PERFECTLY with my time capsule and before that my airport extreme, both through the USB printer connection through the network. With this model, I have to TURN THE PRINTER ON AND OFF EVERYTIME I WANT TO PRINT SOMETHING!!! This is the second one I got, thinking it was a manufacturing error, but they must have changed something in the software that no longer makes it compatible with network devices.

The Poor Man's Color Laser Printer

T. Boling, Amazon
25 September 2010
  • Summary: The best I can say is...at least it prints. I needed a color printer that I can maintain at a low cost and still print mass-quantities of pages, and this does it. For its use in my business, I only need it to print copies of webpages to send to people in prison. They're not picky about print quality. But if I were using this to build a presentation for work, I'd not only be fired, but laughed out of the room.

has a major defect

A. Chow, Amazon
9 September 2010
  • Summary: I have this printer for about a year with very light use and all of a sudden, the printer is jamming paper half way. I did a search on Google and sure enough, there is a defect with a part called the photo interrupter that somehow prevents the paper from feeding all the way through. It is a cheap part and there is an youtube video on how to fix it.

Jobs fail to print half way through

Geordie W. Korper, Amazon
19 May 2010
  • Summary: I have this printer hooked up to my Airport Base Station with print sharing turned on. Pretty much anything over a couple of pages will fail half way through printing. Other than that it's a nice printer for the money. My main reason for purchasing it was that I don't print frequently enough for an inkjet to be an economical choice. The cartridges end up drying up before I use them. This being a laser printer solves that problem for me.

Very expensive printer

LB, Amazon
16 March 2010
  • Summary: Ok here is the scoop on this printer. It's a cheap printer, but for that price, the quality is fairly decent. It is not as good as my $3K Xerox color laser printer, but for $100-200, it is fairly decent. Colors are okay and bw text looks fine (perhaps not as razor sharp as an HP Laserjet, but OK given the low price). The box/casing is all plastic, and not as study as other printers, but nowadays, everything is made of plastic anyways.

Good, not great, printer for the money

vitara12, epinions.com
7 January 2010
  • Summary: For basic color printing, this will suffice. If you need more bells and whistles, this is not the best printer due to much manual intervention involved to change the settings.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, small footprint, easy setup
  • Cons: Vague instructions for printing on other media besides paper.
