Summary: The CLP 680ND is one of the best printers on the market. However, it will not take a firmware update and rejects its own factory sealed toner cartridges as being incompatible due to paranoia about remanufactured cartridges and programming incompetence. So each time you run out of toner, you will need to buy a new unit.
fantastic and produces beautiful shinny full color almost photographic copies

Summary: The first one had a problem so it was replaced. The second one is fantastic and produces beautiful shinny full color almost photographic copies. When you plug it into a 3.0 USB, it prints very fast. Love, love , love it.
Summary: It was working fine. Colors nice. Guess where the printer is now? That wide ribbon looking thing that was wrapped around the gears came out. Good thing I got the 3 year warranty. They replaced it where I got it at Fry's. The replacement new Samsung worked for 2 months. It happened again.The second time worse than the first time. Fry's electronics would not replace it with my 3 year warranty this time. .
Summary: I'd like to add that I've had a predecessor model (CLP-315W) of this printer for about 4 years - mostly light to med/heavy home office use. Probably 90% of the printing was greyscale. I am very impressed with the printer. It has been rock solid over the years and is only now beginning to show signs of dementia. Color is good and non-Samsung toner cartridges approach being reasonable. When my current printer bites the dust (days, weeks, months, years?
Excerpt: The printer was excellent for two weeks, but then started clicking and jamming. It finally became unusable. Samsung support was not helpful, even sending the printer to a closed service center and now being "returned to sender". If you need a reliable printer from a company that stands behind it's products, this is not the printer you're looking for.
