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.
What a great bargain-priced little color laser printer

Summary: My old NEC mono laser printer finally had to go. I researched color laser printers online and found that the Samsung CLP315W generally had very positive user reviews. I decided to buy a factory remanufactured unit on eBay for $120 including shipping. Glad I did. Although many of the reviewers had trouble setting up the wireless printing, I did not have any difficulty after figuring out some of the instructions that were not clear to me.
