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: 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: 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.
This Printer Has Been Designed to Rob Customers Blind

Summary: I have owned this printer for about a year. We mainly use printers for black ink output and occasionally for color. We decided on a laser printer since we were going through deskjet cartridges like they were water. The problem with this printer is it consumes cyan (yellow) ink along with the black ink for black & white only copies. It also seems to consume the blue and red ink, but at a slower rate.
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: 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.
Summary: Not sure what happened to Jazzy from Boise, but...here is my story. I bought this printer for $17*.** from Office*****, got the printer home, unpackaged it, put in toner, plugged in network cable, printed a demo/test page by holding in the "online" button and then releasing it, installed the network setup cd, software autoplayed, software saw my printer immmediately, software finished, printer installed perfectly.
