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)
Summary: If you run a real operating system (read: linux or unix) you will have to spend lots of time babysitting the driver. It prints, but maybe not worth the hassle. Duplexing works on linux, too. After initially posting a bad review, I had second thoughts and changed it.. I was being nitpicky and it's not Samsung's fault that people make poor choices on operating systems.
Summary: Samsung's ML-2955ND Monochrome Laser Printer is a capable performer, with sharp text and graphics and a very well designed settings panel. Installation is quick and straightforward - but remember to pick up a USB cable, since this model doesn't include one. Network setup was a five-minute task and there have been no issues during the first few weeks of use. The only significant negative is that this is a pretty noisy printer.
