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.
Pros: Have had one for 3 years now. Truly like the performance. Just on draft, the quality of print is great. Great machine!
Cons: Our first one had a problem during its warranty period and was successfully exchanged for our current one. Only quirk is the toner indicator lights usually flash, but the tech people said to ignore them.

Pros: I can print from my Android tablet using the Samsung MobilePrint app. I have it on for 2 days now and my WIFI connection never got lost. I'm printing from my bedroom upstair and it print like I'm connected with USB wire. Very happy.
Cons: Very hard to setup through Infrastructure mode where you have to enter your security code. I spent 3 hours doing this and I know I'm following all the direction correctly and my passcode is correct.
Summary: UPDATE... (in a hurry please excuse any typos - simply wanted to write this down in case it could help anyone out there struggling) --- After several hours on tech help with both Samsung and Verizon (my ISP) here's what I have learned... - If your Wireless Network Name has any numbers or symbols (like.. & - / _ ) then you will not be able to connect wirelessly at all...
Summary: We've had this printer for a few weeks now. The printing is a bit slow, but good quality. I don't have any complaints about the functionality, and the size is really ideal - the footprint is no bigger than my old inkjet, and it is only a little bit taller. Really small for a laser printer, which is great for a home office. My only complaint about the printer is the amount of power that it sucks. When it is turned on and working, it makes my lights flicker.
Summary: This is my first personal laser jet printer that I have owned. I was sick of always being out of ink on my inkjet printer and the cost of the ink. I am using a cat5 cable for the network connection. I have not tried the wireless. Pros: The printer is fast, quiet, and has good print quality. I can run labels through it with no problems. Cons: I have noticed the same issue as the other reviewer about it losing its connection when IPs change.
Summary: I let my 13 years old son do the setup & he did it pretty fast without any help. We already have a B/W Samsung laser printer ($49) but sometime do need fancier printing. Both of my printers are also wireless so they can be access by my kids from their own rooms for school related stuff. The startup & printing speed can be slowed compare to those larger one at a workplace I but can't complain when we factor in the price ($158).
Summary: So far I am very happy with this printer. The text print quality is very good. The controls are easy to use. The printer wireless connection works well with both a Mac and a PC. The color and print quality of photographs on laser quality glossy paper is better than expected.
