works fine, but low heat after 1 year

W. YANHAO "Max", Amazon
19 June 2011
  • Summary: It has been working fine for one year with around 1000 sheets printed (duplex, toner saver mode). Recently it displays the low heat error, mostly caused by a broken fuser. The warranty is one year... so I have to find a new printer. I think Samsung produces high-quality LCD monitors, but this does not extend to their printers.

Deficient print quality - returned

Marie, pcRUSH.com
30 November 2010
  • Summary: Comments about Samsung ML-2851ND Laser Printer: Print quality on this ML-2851ND is deficient & inappropriate for home office use. My old HP LaserJet printer from 1994 and the Samsung ML-2250 laser printer both provide better print quality. Returned for refund.
  • Pros: Easy Setup, Fast Print Time
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Poor print quality

Could have been great

Bari E. Krisinger, Amazon
29 April 2008
  • Summary: The ML2851ND is capable of some nice clean copies, good grayscale and quiet, fast operation. It is easy to set up, especially with Macintosh. It's footprint is fairly small for use in tight spaces. The only problem is that right out of the box about 95% of my copies printed with a smeary toner streak about a half an inch wide all the way down the left margin. This prints with varying densities most of the time but seems the darkest when the printer is first used.

Netzwerkfähig, Duplex, schön leise -- leider schlechter Druck

rs, Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: Dieser Drucker ist schön klein und hatte exakt die Eigenschaften, die ich suchte: Beidseitiger Druck und Netzwerkanschluss. Die Bewerbungen waren durchweg gut und so habe ich ihm mir bestellt. Hat dann leider keine 10min. gedauert um festzustellen, dass der Druck selbst mit höchster Druckqualität extrem streifig wird. Nun drucke ich nicht die ganze Zeit Bilder, aber schon mal Dokumente mit Graphiken und selbst die Qualität bei Text hat mich leider nicht überzeugt.
