good but toner expensive

Andrew D., Newegg
21 June 2013
  • Summary: Obvious moral of story: consider cost of replacing toner before buying this printer.
  • Pros: I've had this printer for over a year and a half and it has been very reliable. I haven't had a complaint about print quality. Speed is good.
  • Cons: I paid $100 for this printer on sale and the replacement toner cost $115 (for the 5000 page cartridge). The original 2000 page cartridge yielded about 1500 pages before I had to replace it.

Works Great - for a while

Mike Sams, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: It printed perfectly in the beginning. The duplex printer is great, and the by-pass feeder will take things as small as a 3x5 card. Sadly, within 6 months of putting the printer into service, it began printing poorly, leaving a shadow, or dirty look on my papers.

Fast Quality prints expensive

DONALD C., Newegg
23 November 2012
  • Summary: Really a nice printer that was easy to setup on network and printed pages super fast compared to my old Samsung ML1710. Just understand that toner and cartridges offline are hard to find and if you run out of toner there is NO WAY to continue printing without installing a new cartridge.
  • Pros: Prints fast high quality prints that are easy on the eyes to read. Quiet too and setup was a breeze. Time to 1st print 5 sec or less.
  • Cons: Toner is expensive and oem/reman cartridges are hard to find locally. On line it is easier but still expensive and refilling your own toner has special requirements that if you make a mistake can cost you a cartridge. Cannot tell printer to continue printing once "replace toner" is on so ALWAYS H...

  • Summary: I really wanted to like this printer. It seems a lot better built than the comparable HP printers and it was cheaper than the Brother model I usually recommend to clients. I purchased it from Newegg half off, for a client of mine. Out of the box, it printed black horizontal lines down all the pages.
  • Pros: Fast, seems well built, uses paper cassette to protect paper from dust, reasonable toner cost, LCD and Eco mode
  • Cons: Printer was defective out of the box and very poor support from Samsung

Beware the Toner cost

James K., Newegg
8 June 2012
  • Summary: I've used Samsung printers personally and in the businesses I've worked for more than 10 years... they are excellent products but their consumable costs have always been very high.
  • Pros: The printer is nearly free...well less than 100 bucks.
  • Cons: The toner cartridge has an imbedded chip that "kills" the cartridge after the 5,000th print regardless of how much toner remains. There are some OEM non-USA cartridges out there that may or may not work so you are better off sticking with the genuine product. The genuine product costs an average ...

Beware of Support

James C., Newegg
16 September 2011
  • Summary: I hope yours works out of the box. Mine has a small problem. The LCD display has no back light. Have to use a flashlight for setup and errors. While that does not effect performance it is an irritant.
  • Pros: Setup was easy with a caveat. See cons. Prints well and fires up quickly from sleep mode. All in all a nice little B/W network printer for the money.
  • Cons: Support is read from a script. If the answer does not fit it is so long.

Fast printer but stuck with low-capacity toner

JOEL B., Newegg
28 June 2011
  • Summary: Don't bother with the Set IP utility they include; just set the IP on the front panel and save yourself installing a mostly useless program.
  • Pros: Fast, quality output. Works flawlessly on the network with a little front-panel configuration.
  • Cons: Doesn't support Samsung's 10K page MLT-D205E toner cartridge - says it's incompatible even though the website says it "goes great with" that cartridge. The toner in question is mechanically identical to the MLT-D205S/L that it does support. When I called to see if there was a firmware upgrade, th...

ML-3471

AJ, Amazon
4 February 2011
  • Summary: Der Drucker ist schnell, robust, was verschiedene Papierdicken angeht, er hat eine "Toner-Save"-Taste und eine Stopp-Taste. Die Einzelblatteinführung ist so, dass die Blätter dort nicht herunterfallen. Durch Duplex kann man Papier und Ablagevolumen sparen.
