Summary: I BROUGHT THIS PRINTER AS REFURBISHED FOR $469 INSTEAD OF BUYING THE USED PRINTER FOR $190. WHEN I RECEIVED THE PRINTER I NOTICED THAT THE INK CARTRIDGES WERE NOT NEW AND WERE PLACED IN PLASTICE BAGS TO WHICH THE INK LEAKED OUT AND I HAD TO CLEAN THE BEFORE THEY COULD BE USED. WHEN I OPENED THE BACK TO INSTALL THE INK CARTRIDGES I FOUND THAT PRINTER WAS DIRTY AND HAD NOT BEEN CLEANED FOR SOME TIME, I FOUND THIS TO BE ODD SINCE IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE REFURBISH.
Summary: We have used this type of printer for several years. They are great in printing envelopes. As far as heavy duty jobs, I would not recommend it but for small jobs, it is OK. The colors are great most of the time however finding toners are not always easy to find. Many companies make these toners as refurbished.
Summary: I purchased this printer for use in my office 2 to 3 years ago. I have used it daily mostly for printing packing slips, brochures, ads, and shipping labels. The printer has only jammed once, and that is when a book was sitting in the way of the papers exit path. This impresses me, as the first year of its life, it was used in a humid basement office. The initial toner cartridges lasted me a little over a year.
Summary: I own a CLP-500 & a CLP-510. Very happy with those Samsung printers EXCEPT no Networking. Set one up manually and worked so-so, The CLP-600N is PERFECT in that area. EASY setup (3 computers) FAST responce to print. Great quality, 1200dpi compared to 600dpi on the older ones. BUT it does 2 things that "annoy" me. First, to print BOTH sides, you need to do it MANUALLY. Second, it randomly asks for paper from the side tray.
Summary: The value of this printer is that it gives me profressional grade quality in my home office. That means I can prepare for a client meeting, print off marketing materials as I need them thus saving me time and effort to get ready for a client. Put another way - I do not have to make a special trip just to print off materials - I can do it from my home office.
Heavy, Bulky, Loud and Poor Quality Prints, Bad Customer Service

Summary: I have had problems with this printer since day 1, I am on a mac and found it very difficult to network. Several long calls with inexperienced tech support people. When I finally got it up and running I had black chicken scratches every inch down the page. They did replace the cartridges after I had to mail in some examples of the problem and many phone calls. But after the chicken scratches were gone, my printed pages all had a gray tone.
AVOID THIS FRUSTRATING PRINTER - constant paper jams & $500 toner cartridges

Summary: For a printer fraught with printing problems, it is expensive at $500 + $500 for toner cartridges. We had problems with it right out of the box. After 1 month and many calls to Samsung's Tech Support to solve a myriad of printing & networking problems, we finally got it up and running (briefly). Printing on paper seems to be a substantial problem for the CLP600. Samsung Tech Support informed me: 1. Samsung doesn't approve use of ANY CARDSTOCK paper 2.
Summary: Purchased this from Staples for $49.99. I have had it for 6 months and absolutely love it. What was Staples thinking when they sold it to me so cheap? Used the USB connection for the first 3 months until opened a small office. Now it sits on the network with 12 other Users. The speed is just right for a color laser jet. Quality is good. And installation on all computers was a cake walk. Very happy.
Summary: There is virtually no useful documentation on how to setup the printer in a networked environment. There isn't much information on the web either. So after 3 hours of experimenting, here's a how-to guide to benefit someone else who may be on the same path. After connecting the printer to a LAN access point, pop in the 'Network utilities' CD and install both utilities in there (setIP and another one that I can't remember the name).
