Summary: I have had an okidata color laser printer I loved. The quality and speed was unmatched. The problem was getting it to work after changing the ink cartridges. I had to trash it. I purchased this CLP-315w and was so pleased with the quality, price, speed and cosrt of ink that I purchased 2 more. I would and have recommended this printer many times.
Summary: I wanted to buy the same printer that I had broke . I still have some unused packs of toner and I don't want to waste them. the guy I bought this from was very nice and patient with me. He is very reputable and honest. Something happened to the printer on the way here so he refunded all my money and let me keep the printer. I may be able to fix my broken one with parts from the unit he gave me.
How the hell do they make any money on a printer as good this @ THIS PRICE?

Summary: This unit is phenomenal - the colors jump out and the clarity of the images is sharp enough to shave with. Also the 'ink' is waterproof, a big deal if you are putting things up on outdoor sites. Caveat - NO LIQUIDS ON TOP! It may LOOK like there is a 'catch cup' in the top to stop liquids, BUT THERE IS NOT. Good way to ruin a batch of toner cartridges! If you live in the desert with plus 100 degrees daily, and sometimes at night!
Summary: Great little color laser. We have four of these scattered around the offices. The down side is that Samsung, like many others, holds you hostage on the cartridges. There is a hardware hack which is really easy to implement which circumvents this and allow refilling the cartridges.Lift one pin on an IC on the circuit board, buy bulk toner on Ebay, and you are good to go for about 4500 pages.
Summary: I have always wanted a laser printer but could never seem to come up with the cash for a descent one. I came across this refurbished printer that was discounted to a very affordable price for me (I paid less than $100). I couldn't justify not buying it - and I am glad I did. I bought this printer just before Christmas 2010 as a gift to myself. The printer is the perfect size to fit on the limited space I have on my desk.
