Summary: I got this at a GREAT PRICE! So far I love it! It has standby mode, to save o the electric bill. It was a bit hard to network at first but once we got it going it was perfect. Make sure and read the instructions on how to set this printer up. It is a bit more complicated than most. Having said that, when we work hard for things, we appreciate them that much more. This made me really like it! If you can get this printer at a great price (under $150) it's a steal!
Summary: Did a lot of research looking for a cheap color laser printer that anyone on our company wifi network could use. Got this in last week. Setup is kind of a pain because you must use a USB cable (not supplied) to configure the wifi. However, once configured this machine prints beautifully and subsequent computers on the network can connect easily once the software is on their computer.
Worst and most expensive printer I've ever bought!

Summary: Since the day I took this printer out of the box, it has done nothing but give me headaches. First, getting it to work with my wireless network took more than two days. Once I finally got the network function to work, it would only print ONE time, then it would not read the network again. I had to set the IP address to static (something most people I think DO NOT know). The directions that came with the printer were not clear (techies wrote them obviously).
Don't buy it!!!!!!! Don't waste your hard earned money on this piece of JUNK!!!!!!!!!

Summary: I have had this printer since last March. I used it literally a handful of times to print some color labels for my biz and for a handful of blk and white prints. It started having a stripe pattern on the left hand side of the page ruining several labels- this happened two days ago. Then a piece of paper got stuck in the orange roller ball thing at the top- guess what, it is impossible to get paper out of that thing, no dials to move it and if you touch it is is damaged...
Summary: I'd give no star if that was an option. Unfortunately, 1 star is the lowest rating allowed here. The setup was easy and it worked smoothly for a couple of times. Then it stopped working for no reason with a blinking red light. It kept saying that the printer was open or paper missing and wouldn't print. I tried everything I could and sometimes it would work if I turned it off then back on again. The blinking red light would magically disappear.
Summary: I purchased this based on other recommendations here on Amazon. I've owned dozens of printers over the years in both a personal and business environment, and this is the worst laser printer I've owned. Setup was very difficult and involved a 45-minute call to customer service to get the wireless printing to work. The output is marginal. The speed is very slow compared to other color lasers. After fewer than 100 prints I'm already getting streaks.
Summary: Great printer when it's working, I had a Samsung CLP315 first, prints great, but buyer beware, I must have bad luck with Samsung, the CLP315 broke down after 8 months, had it repaired under warranty, then it broke down again 5 months later, out of warranty, cost of repair more than a new one, I liked the print results so well I bought the Samsung CLP325W, great prints again, but now after 15 months, very light printing, I cleaned rollers, put in new toners, still light...
Summary: I bought this printer to replace my HP color inkjet and wanted to print some color labels for my honey bottles, the bees have been busy this summer. I am still using it wired as I have not yet been able to connect to our MacBooks using a wireless connection. My test color printing on plain paper printed good. I printed on 3M label paper the color was very light and spotty especially near the center of the page.
