economically efficient if you don't print in color that often

Summary: after owning 2-3 color printers that refuse to operate without a single color cartridge out of 3, I threw in the towel and decided to get a laser B/W printer. After two and a half years of light printing, the ink cartridge is still going strong (I bought a back up cartridge that remains unopened). Only thing missing is wireless operation.But again, for the price I'm happy.
Summary: This printer weighs less than half of the Brother duplex laser it replaces. Nice when it is in a cabinet. So far I find the print to be clear and fast once the driver goes through its pre print workup. This will not handle real heavy card stock like the Brother which had a straight through the box print option. The Samsung will bend every sheet - so if you print business cards look for a different printer. For 8.5 by 11 double sided it is FAST!
Summary: The printer itself was easy to set up on my network. I am able to print from all three of my home computers. With the help of the Samsung app I am also able to print from my android tablet and Iphone with ease. The printer speed and quality are outstanding. My only knock on this product is the expense of replacing the toner cartridges. $70+ a pop makes this printer expensive to maintain, especially if you print with any regularity.
Summary: The printer seems to print well and the duplex operation works without a problem. What is a problem is setting up the IP address to be fixed, you have to install an app of the CD that comes with it, even though the device has a web interface.
The printer's fantastic - the accompanying software is so-so

Summary: The printer worked fine out of the box - contrary to some of the reviews I had read, there were no installation problems (Windows 7). We've had the printer several months and it reports we've still got 45% of the toner left. In that time we would have spent more than we spent on this printer just buying ink for our old inkjet printer. The double sided printing works fine, it does everything a small laser printer should.
Good for the price, has duplex printing, good econo mode

Summary: I have had several Samsung printers and they have all been capable machines. The install software is often a bit flaky, but once you get them set up they work well. This one is no different. All in all a good value, especially for a printer with duplex printing and wifi networking. The other reviewers here have already pretty much covered it, so here are my highlights/comments: Pros: Decent build quality and good print quality.
Summary: Pros: duplex (the real one, not manual feeding), network printing with well made interface settings, Linux support, paper hasn't jammed yet in a month of light use (about 100 pages), quick wake up on LAN access, cheap enough Cons: poor picture printing, no wireless, black and white only, no power off button (wakes on LAN always)
