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.
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.
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: the manual shows a ram upgrade that's easy to access. the part number is CLP-MEM301. i can't find it here at newegg and the only ones i find on the net are nearly $200. it's only a 128MB card that _looks_ like a so-dimm.
Pros: fast enuf, pcl/postscript, duplex, network - that's all i need.
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.
Summary: I purchased this printer During Xmas 2010. I needed a duplex laser printer, and thought this would fit the bill. Well, it did for awhile, but then unfortunately it stopped printing in June 2011. I called Samsung Tech Support, and they told me to talke it to a local print dealer for service.
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: 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.
