Summary: My Bubble Jet ink kept drying up as I don't use it much so I got this; been several years and it is always there for me at a good price. Envelopes feed is a little clunky and the ink can smudge if one isn't carful, especially if going out to the mailbox on a rainy day. Fits my needs well, though I would like a color laser printer some day.
Summary: This does a very good job printing quickly, updates are seamless and laser toner lasts a very long time with heavy use. Happy to have purchased this printer. It is able to print on both sides, turns on & prints very quickly. Minus one star b/c the light indicating a printing problem (out of paper, out of toner, etc.) is entirely non-specific.
Summary: I do a lot of printing in black and white. Am also able to print on both sides of paper when setup properly. Ran over 2000 pages since purchasing and just recently had to change the ink supply.
Summary: This was a wonderful printer as long as it worked. It lasted several years, was fast and reliable. Then it started signaling that it was out of toner while the print quality was still fine. I kept using it until it refused to work. I ordered an expensive OEM replacement cartridge which arrived without the same chip as the one in the machine, but the printer worked fine again for a few days. Now it is again giving a red trouble signal. I have no idea why.
Summary: Once I got it up and running, it worked like a charm! So fast, and I am sure it will save me $$$ to use it, instead of my color (and expensive-cartridge) OTHER printer! I'm happy with this purchase, for sure. One small disclaimer: It did not work with the ethernet connection. I had to get the USB cable to make my computer recognize that the printer was connected...
Summary: Comments about Samsung ML-2851ND Laser Printer: Easy set-up, I use company Laptop w/win XP, my personel desktop has Ubuntu Linux. Driver for both Computer work great. Replaced old Samsung ML-1230. Because I use Linux, I always go to samsung printers, they provide Linux drive with purchase of printer. Makes them a step ahead of their competition. My the way, one customer said his 1994 HP does a better job, well, I service printers for the last 28 yrs for a living.
Summary: Just did the set up on my new Samsung this morning--I'm a loyalist to Samsung monochrome laser printers--as a writer and an editor for a large part of my work, I tend to be a heavy volume printer. And that's what I want, fast, reliable, fairly inexpensive black and white printing. The Samsung ML-2851 was easy enough to install--but beware--the instructions are minimalist enough to make IKEA jealous.
