When it works, it's just acceptable, not great

Allen F. Nelson "Geek For Sale", Amazon
27 February 2006
  • 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.

Nice printer for a PC user

  • Summary: It is huge it is heavy and you could turn the cardboard box into a new family room if you wanted. It is also quiet, faitly quick and the output looks very good. When printing post-script or word files the output is very crisp and clear, sharp enough to merrit the 1200dpi label, even serif fonts at...

OK (ish)

Welsh Guy, Amazon

  • 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.

Please read this before buying -- it's a white elephant!!!

Dr. Leslie Dean Brown, Amazon

  • Summary: I could not recommend this printer to anyone! Why? Read on... Firstly I should state I specifically bought this printer to print at least 4 copies of my PhD thesis (315 pages each copy). I printed about 50 pages in a futile attempt to correct the slight bluriness inherent with all text.

Amazing printer for the money

Jason R, Amazon
9 February 2004
  • 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.

Stay away from this printer!

  • 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.

  • Summary: This printer had one problem after another. Paper feed problems. Printing problems. Sensor problems with the first one being the waste toner sensor. I eventually had to bypass the sensor.

Boxy but good

Duncan McKenzie, Amazon
9 February 2004
  • Summary: The size and weight of this big-cube-shaped printer are reminiscent of the first generation of black and white laser printers. Print quality is good. Colour pictures won't pass as photographs, but quality is acceptable, and, because the printer is a laser, you can get good results with cheap paper.

Great printer for the price

Kevin Borowsky, Amazon
9 February 2004
  • Summary: After getting ripped off at Kinko's, I needed a low priced color laser to print out brochures, menus and other business related jobs. Duplexing was also very important. Many other units require the additional purchase of an expensive duplexing kit - this one does not.
