Summary: Despite the problem setup (which I'll admit was probably mostly my fault), I am very happy with the printer. I purchased it for a client, and they are happy with it as well. It prints well, and very fast with super-sharp text quality.
Pros: Good price, excellent print quality. Fast. Pretty quiet - I was expecting louder based on other reviews. Toner very easy to install. Good page yield from the toner (projected). Works perfect with XP or Vista.
Cons: Lack of instructions made setup a bit frustrating. I'm not a network expert, but I've set up other network printers easier than this one. The key is to set the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway on the printer first, and then run the CD to detect the printer and install the software. Just set t...
Pros: * Supports PostScript * Networked * Easy install for Windows 2000 and Mac OS X. * Toner save feature does save toner.
Cons: * Toner save feature saves too much toner. * Loud when idle. Workaround is to open the front door to suspend its operation. * Does not support duplex printing. * Could not (yet) get it working with Ubuntu.
Summary: In spite of what I've said above, this printer looks to be an insanely great deal - think of it - a networked PostScript printer for $xxx, add $xx if you don't have a discount coupon deal. I've already printed a 370 page manual with this thing and intend to send many more jobs its way.
Pros: $xxx (with the $xx coupon) is a really sweet deal for a networked PostScript printer. * Works great with my Mac and Win2K over the network. Couldn't get it to work with Ubuntu.
Cons: * Printer is loud when idle. A workaround is to open the front door slightly to suspend the printer. * Printer dialogs says it supports duplex printing but I don't believe it. * Printing an envelope through the manual feed requires you to jam the envelope more than you expect. Thinking this is a ...
A great printer that is ideal for any workplace or office.

Excerpt: I use the Samsung ML-3051N printer at work in my office. We have recently run out of toner and needed a new cartridge, I felt inspired to write a review about this rather large but effcetive printer.
