Summary: We received this as a gift from Samsung for our school. I can see why they were wanting to get rid of them! We have had multiple problems with the toner indicator saying that the bottle is full when it isn't even close. The problem is that the sensors are defective from the factory, even though Samsung won't admit to any wrong doing. A serviceman for Samsung said he has replaced dozens of these sensors and the problem magically goes away...
Summary: The Samsung CLP-500 is so inexpensive and packed with features that it didn't make sense for me to purchase anything else. And I couldn't be happier. First off, ignore the other reviews that claim "fuzzy text." My 500 prints crisp text, even on cheap paper. These guys are either misinformed, or shills for HP, who is bleeding customers to Samsung right now. The main selling point is built-in duplexing. I can print double-sided in full color.
Summary: This printer has worked well for me for the past year. However it started developing a print issue wehre it would screw up some of the image information. I initially thought that it was due to me running a faster computer and the USB information was being sent too fast to the printer. Ie under-run issues on the printer itself due to lack of memory or processing horsepower. I bought an additional memory and it still does the same thing.
Summary: I purchased this printer last year with tax refund money. I thought that I was getting a great color printer for a pretty good price. I have a lot of IT experience, having repaired and run service on networks for over 20 years now. I've had experience with a LOT of printers in my time. This one was supposed to be for my home, just to print color pages. Well, I bought it in February, and by April, the thing almost caught fire in my bedroom.
Summary: i urgently needed a laser colour printer and found this one rather cheap. although i wasnt satisfied with its performance, like fuzzy text etc. i still kept on using it. but then the problems seemed to attract my attention. the major drawback which i found out in a few days time was that it doesnt print photos on photo or glossy paper!!! i tried every sort of paper and the result was rubish!!..it doesnt even have the option of glossy paper, which really shocked me!!!
