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 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: I've only had this printer for a few days and I agree that the documentation on this printer is poor. However all that is required to set this printer up on a wired LAN is to install the printer driver from the installation CD on each PC on your network. There is no need to use the included network utilities unless you want to change the IP settings on the printer, itself. Default is DHCP, and my printer was assigned an IP address by my router with no issues.
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).
Summary: I have been looking for a laser printer for my home office for while, but wasn't ready to spend $450+. This printer was on sale at a major office supply chain for under $200 so I thought, why not? There is a plastic-y smell when printing, as mentioned by another reviewer, but I was assured by a very helpful customer service rep. at Samsung that it would go away. I had no trouble setting up the software for my Mac.
Summary: This printer is working fine as advertised. The network setup was easy after my firewall software was told that printer was to be trusted! An interesting plus is the one year ON SITE warranty.
CLP600 und CLP600N ist für Linux ideal vom Preisleistungsverhältniß.

Summary: Ich hab mir den CLP600 vor ca über 2 Jahren für 256€ zugelegt , für mich war ausschlag gebent das mir Tintendrucker zu viele Macken hatten und zu teuer bei den Patronen waren , die auch sehr oft eingetrocknet sind , teilweise nach schon 2 Tagen. Nun sind über 2 Jahre her und bis auf Schwarz mußte ich noch keine Patrone zukaufen.
