Died just out of warranty

Lobo, Amazon
25 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought my first laser printer years ago. I've replaced printers due to newer models coming out, but I've never had one outright die like the ML-2851ND. Like others, my fuser died when it was just out of warranty, and a new fuser is $100. So basically, it's junk. It's funny--I bought this printer to replace a Brother printer because I thought I was buying quality. Little did I know...well now I know better, and I'm never buying Samsung again!

Steer Clear

Overstock
2 May 2010
  • Summary: Unit advertised as refurbished but obviously just a return. Unit came covered in toner finger prints, missing rear paper cover, and with crushed installation instructions. The only 'refurbishment' that seemed to happen was re-taping the original box. Definitely not worth it, should have bought new.

Don't buy this printer

J.W., Amazon
2 April 2010
  • Summary: After using our work horse Apple Laserwriter 360, which never gave us a bit of trouble, for over 12 years, the Samsung ML-2851ND was a HUGE disappointment. We specifically bought it because it was advertised as being able to handle card stock. This printer can't even print envelopes well. If you use the manual feeder in the standard mode, the envelopes are completely crinkled.

Open Heat Error : Cycle Power Message is Killing Me

Scott Sonnier, Amazon
20 February 2010
  • Summary: Six months and one tray of paper into use of this product and I am receiving the "Open Heat Error : Cycle Power" message. Unable to beat this problem and nothing is published about this problem. I think I have already lost this printer.

Does not quite live up to the review on CNet - not at all

Middle Class Mom "Don't tell me, no.", Amazon
28 September 2009
  • Summary: First, I had the same experience with the toner cartridge that came with the printer. The copies were smeared and awful. I spent hours trying to clean the cartridge and ran all the utilities over and over - very frustrating. I thought I was going to have to return the printer. After speaking at length with support - and against my better judgment - I purchased a new cartridge and the smearing problem was solved. But if it hadn't been, I would have been out $65.00.

Update rating to 4-Stars**** now once solved problem

Rome "Christian Scholar", Amazon
2 September 2009
  • Summary: Update - When I initially got this printer I had a problem loading the software but I worked it out. I got an error message that ended up being an HP system diagnostic error instead. The main problem I had was that the toner cartridge it comes with only prints a few hundred pages and then starts alerting you with a red light on the unit and a software alert that you are low on toner and need to order one ASAP.

Papierstau + Durchgehende Falz

Krämer, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: Das ist echt der dümmste Drucker ever den ich mir von Samsung gekauft habe. So gut wie bei jedem Druckauftrag habe ich mindestens einen Papierstau. Meistens sogar mehrere! Zudem sind bei Drucken auf 100g papieren immer 2 durchgehende leichte Falzen zu sehen von den Rädern des Druckers. Für Bewerbungen total ungeeignet.... Ich rate klar vom Kauf ab! Das sind meiner Meinung nach basale sachen, die ein drucker hin bekommen sollte!

Goede printer, zolang hij het blijft doen

kbk3, Ciao
17 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Gekozen voor deze printer voor thuiskantoor vanwege de combinatie van: Duplex functie (automatisch dubbelzijdig afdrukken). Compact formaat : Ondanks duplex functie is hij maar 21 cm hoog; een plek op een kastplank met hoogte pocketboek is voldoende; ideaal voor een klein kantoor. Netwerk printer. Lage paginakosten (althans bij gebruik high-capacity cartridge van 5000 prints). Dit is mijn eerste Samsung printer.
  • Pros: Compact formaat, duplex functie (automatisch dubbelzijdig afdrukken)
  • Cons: Garantie en service bedroevend
