"Great Printer, but front loading no longer works."
22 November 2009
Pros: Cost effective, Quick for small volumes, Quick start up time, Amazing toner efficiency (I can't believe that someone would dare to use an inkjet instead of one of these for b/w), Reliable software.
Cons: Front loader broke shortly after purchase, Does not hold an entire ream of paper (500 shts) holds 1/2-2/3, Only 8.5 x 11 paper, Too much plastic in construction makes it unsturdy, Duplex costs extra.
Summary: This is my first Samsung printer and I've used it for about a month. I am very happy with it so far. Set up was easy and both Mac and WIN computers recognized it right away. Had some trouble setting it up as a network printer but managed to resolve it myself. I did send an e-mail to tech support and got no response back. It is very quiet in sleep mode but is somewhat noisy when printing. It is fast whether you are printing straight text or a page with graphics.
Summary: If you need duplexing, then order the ML-3051ND which is identical except it includes duplexing [printing of both sides of a sheet] and may cost $20 more. It does a fine job with duplex print. I use the manual input [multipurpose tray] a lot, with envelopes and half-letter [30lb. & 20lb 5.5" x 8.5"], and never have had a jamb.
Summary: After just under one month it has delivered everything it promised. For me though it needs to stand the test of time. That being said, it is certainly the best buy for the money. Other reviews complained about the noise of it warming up. I haven't found it to be much of an issue. The print quality is good and the speed is good also.
Summary: I've never owned a Samsung before but am pleasantly pleased with it's performance. Slow to start but multiple print jobs are quick! The toner saver button helps to conserve without giving up the quality of print.
Samsung ML 3051N: It's not the size that matters it's what you do with it...

Summary: 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. The cartridges are expensive however we did manage to get several months use out of it and we use it every day for 80-200 sheets.
Pros: very efficient, fast results
Cons: only black and white, gets hot and is very big and heavy!
