Summary: At work we have had the 3051 ND for over a years and they are very fast, even when printing double sided. Operation is a little noisy, but not too bad. The cartridges are all-in-one (drum included), and are very affordable (if you do a lot of printing remember to get the high capacity 3050B cartridges). Quality is very good and compatibility is high (use on Macs OS 9-X, and Linux) I recently bought one here for home and again it is doing very well.
Summary: If you need duplexing at all, then order the ML-3051ND which seems identical to the ML-3051N except it includes automatic duplexing [printing of both sides of a sheet] and may cost $20 more. The ND version does a fine job with duplex print. I use the Multipurpose Tray a lot, with envelopes and half-letter [30lb. & 20lb 5.5" x 8.5"], and never have had a jamb.
Summary: I love the auto duplexer on this printer. It works fine, produces decent quality prints, and does the job. My complaints are that the registration is a little off on double-sided prints (it varies between 1/16" and 1/4") and it is somewhat loud while printing. I have used the printer with a variety of paper stocks and have been really pleased. Every now and then the manual feed has a tough time picking up cardstock. But the occasional paper jam is easy to clear up.
Summary: My ML3051ND came with a defective cartridge, producing white drop-outs across all pages. After four months, a dozen calls, and several faxes, Samsung support operators have been unable to transfer my problem to a decision-making level, let alone fix the machine. Their operators have admitted to being overwhelmed. I finally bought a new cartridge, which cured the problem. But even now, Samsung can't find anyone who can authorize a reimbursement.
Summary: This printer requires that you press a button for every page printed when using the multifunction tray. Otherwise if you do not press the button you will have to wait nearly 60sec before printer auto-feeds.
Excerpt: The technology has been its character and simplifying technology has been its motto. Samsung has come up with a monochrome laser workgroup printer, a boon for small work group. Calling it as Samsung ML 3051ND Laser Printer, this printer weighs 11.1kg with dimensions of 40 x 43.3 x 28.5cm.
Summary: Veloce nella stampa, facile da usare la funzione fronte retro ma il toner è più caro della media. Può essere fastidioso attendere l'avvio della stampa: infatti ci mette più di 30 secondi per il riscaldamento. Con la modalità toner save si può arrivare a stampare anche fino a 4000 pagine. Ideale per gli studi professionali che utilizzano molta carta come i commercialisti, gli avvocati o agli architetti.
Pros: stampa fronte retro
Cons: lentissima nel riscaldamento e toner costoso
Excerpt: Meine Ausgangssituation war die, dass mein Farblaser im Druckbild unzumutbar nachließ und ich auf die schnelle Ersatz brauchte. Mithin auch aus Kostengründen fiel die Entscheidung auf den Samsung ML 3051ND: Technische Daten: Diese sind - wie in allen meinen Berichten - besser auf der Herstellerseite zu erfahren!
Pros: Duplexdruck, Netzwerkanschluss, tolle Druckqualität und viele nette Kleinigkeiten
Cons: Kleines Papierfach, keine Farbe, was aber bei nem SW - Drucker praktisch zu erwarten ist . . . ; - )
Summary: Possiedo questa stampante da febbraio e la uso solo a scopo lavorativo. Ma avendola accanto alla scrivania, nonostante abbiamo la stampante di rete centrale, uso la samsung spessissimo....diciamo in media 20 stampe al giorno. Faccio una brevissima premessa per spiegarvi come mai ho scelto questa stampante piuttosto che altre. A inizio anno, per alcuni incarichi lavorativi, ho dovuto equipaggiarmi di una stampante che avesse la funzionalità del fronte/retro automatico.
