Summary: This is the Ken Griffey Jr. of printers. Early in it's career it demonstrates impressive power and grace - printing duplex pages quickly and in high resolution. Then on one normal day, there was a little twinge. It had become injured. It's streaking now.
Fuser overheated 11 months in but happy until then

Summary: Like a number of other reviewers here, the fuser overheated on our printer. I rung up Samsung and was made to prove the printer was only 11 months old (and within the one-year warranty) by emailing them a copy of my Amazon invoice. Fair enough.
Summary: Win 7 couldn't see the printer on the network. Ended up having to set a static ip for it (why do I need to think about this???). Samsung software is useless and I couldn't uninstall it on Win 7 (!!!). Worked okay for Ubuntu Linux from the second attempt.
Nice features, but zaps your electrical power when printing.

Summary: I researched a number of monochrome lasers and saw a lot of positive reviews on this one. I liked the speed and the duplex printing, and have been happy with both. Setup was not bad, though the included Samsung software on the CD is no better than what HP usually provides, which is no big deal.
Works great for standard paper, don't try to print envelopes with it though

Summary: It works great for standard paper. Toner is cheap and the toner cartridge includes the drum unit (so you don't have to replace that separately). It prints quick and does duplex, what more could you ask for? Well, you could ask for it to print envelopes.
Summary: We do our printing half on new paper and half on the backs of already-used sheets. Unfortunately, because the bypass paper tray only takes one sheet at a time, we have to open the drawer to put in scrap paper, and then open it again to take it back out-- annoying.
Summary: Pros: Fast, quiet, small, duplex printing. I love it, but ... Cons: Died after just one week This printer is wonderful for the price point (I paid $125 incl. delivery). The print quality is great, I love the duplex printing on both sides, and the unit is small, light, relatively quick and quiet.
Nice fast little printer but Samsung doesn't support wireless Bootcamp

Summary: I agree with all the positive things I read here about the printer. I haven't run into the problems some users with more demanding print jobs have. My complaint is that I bought it to print from the Windows XP side of Boot Camp.
Summary: I had to buy a laser printer in a hurry to replace a previous laser printer that finally quit working. Because I am a student again, I had to really narrow my search criteria for the replacement printer out of cost consideration.
