Summary: Excellent printer with good speed. Print quality is good. Handling of paper is good. I needed a printer that was fast, text quality that was good at a great price. The Samsung ML-2851ND had all these qualities and more.
Summary: Had this printer for 2 years, home use (not business). Works great with my iMac and love the duplex support. Absolutely no problems printing about 1,000 pages per month equivalent. I would buy Samsung again.
Summary: Our Samsung ML-2851 has been working flawless since we got it a month ago. It networks nicely with our four Macs, including two running OS 9. The only issue is that it will feed through extra blank pages when duplex printing, and those get put back in the paper tray. The starter toner cartridge, unlike some other reports, has printed flawlessly. Definitely recommended. Delivery by Amazon was very fast, and I could not be more pleased.
I couldn't ask for a better printer in this price range

Summary: After three brother printers, I bought this samsung, and 5,000+ sheets later, it works perfectly. I do a LOT of printing. My last big print job was revising a 240,000 word manuscript, and I had to print it out four times for hard copy corrections. So I figure that must have been about 3,500-4,000 sheets alone. This printer is very fast, very quiet, and thus far very reliable. I do a lot of double-sided printing, and this is where this printer shines.
A great printer I have four in my office will put one one each desk now.
