Summary: Printer is nice very compact, and fast. I received the wrong color, was not compatible with my laptop even though description said it was, when i searched online stories of issues with trying to get to print wirelessly is a no go. After searching for 2 weeks, i give up. However not bad if you can be within arms reach at all times. Also measurements must be off, paper is a very tight fit and gets jammed. Thankfully seller took immediate action. Thank you!
Summary: I just got it working. A couple of days ago I had a 2 hour session with Samsung support and got fed up and quit. Today I switched from Safari to Firefox and it worked. I had gotten it to work wired before but couldn't get the wireless working. I went to [...] and followed their directions. My guess is that the trick was using Firefox--I've had some programs that don't run with Safari. I don't know how well the printer works but hope this saves someone time.
It's fine....when it works. When it doesn't, a nightmare to fix

Summary: I've had several Samsung laser printers over the years for various houses, but they all seem to have a limited lifespan (with light use) before having problems. I buy them because they have great value for the features and print quality you get. This one right out of the box had 2 major annoyances after setting up the wireless print feature.
Summary: Easy install on the laptop...not so easy getting it to speak to my tablet. Fast, clean printing. For the money I could not ask for more! I am hoping that it will be speaking with my tablet soon.
Summary: This machine is fast, quiet, but only black and white, and only prints. I wish it came with more info - like a users manual . The wireless setup is not just push a button. It took us hours ro set it up.
Summary: Took me four hours and so many different settings to figure it out. The printer would never work on my wireless network with "G only". I had to change it to "mixed mode" (B+G), then it connected immediately. Otherwise it was working fine as a USB printer. I like it; it is compact and prints well.
Summary: Excellent print speed and quality but network functionality for Mac OS is not intuitive. It set up fine but required a password which I didn't input so I had no idea what it was. Poor documentation regarding wireless functionality. Fortunately I have Mac airport with USB printing from the router so not really a deal breaker for me.
