This is actually my second one that I have purchased. You are probably looking at this review because you are looking for a fairly inexpensive all-in-one color laser printer. If that is the case I can tell you are a smart person already. This is not the Lexus of color laser printers by any means, but it is not no Ford Escort either.
It may seem a bit bulky, which it is, but that is the nemsis of a color all-in-one laser printer, just try and find one that isn't that doesn't devour your arm and leg in the process.
Why did I get this same model again. I bought my first model refurbished off ebay for around one fifty. It was great for one year then the fusor or whatever burnt out of it (a one hundred seventy five dollar part, if you can find it. So I got a new one here for fifty more.
This is why I like this specific model:
1. It is small, comparatively
2. It is a quick printer
3. It has easy to follow setup instructions
4. USB plug in front for easy printing from a thumb drive
5. Easy loading toner with no mess
6. It is very quite
7. LAST, but my favorite reason of all, and the main reason I am getting this again is because of the VERY CHEAP TONER. I have not found a printer with cheaper toner than this. At graphic toners you can get a whole set for just over nine dollars per toner. That comes out to be about a penny per print rather than thirteen cents per print for an ink-jet!!!
1. I really wished it had wireless
2. When printing more than 3-4 pages some of the pages can get mixed up or even fall on the floor
In summary, I would defiantly get this printer again and again. In less than 2000 prints the printer will have literally paid for itself just in its cheaper toner.
Almost a good printer. I own other Samsung black output printers that work flawlessly, however this model is just not a good laser printer. I own 2 of these models, and both will jam the paper about every 10 sheet or so. Also the print is somewhat sharper than a inkjet printer, but NOT as sharp as a good laser printer should be. The colors are OK, but a inkjet will produce more true colors. Also the toner cartridges are very limited in volume compared to most other printers. They also have a tendency to not print true reproductions every copy, some will be missing some color or black print in a print job of 10 or more. Save up and buy a better laser than this model. Samsung missed the mark.
The Samsung color lasers of this vintage were made to use simple toner containers that are really cheap to replace making this one of the lowest-cost per page printers in existence. Print quality is good, but not as good as some other makers or the newer models. Still good enough for most day to day needs. The print mechanism is a bit slow to get started and never does set any speed records, but again it is good enough for most uses. One of the nicest features of Samsungs is their printer driver software - it makes a very small footprint in your computer operating system and is helpful without being totally in the way like HP printers, whose software is horrific and resource-consuming. You can get these used or refurbished Samsungs at a terrific price, so even if they aren't the best in the business, they are about the cheapest. The newer models use much more expensive toner cartridges that are also much harder to find, so be careful.
We open this machine and found that gear's axles holding in the chassis were of very bad quality. This machine printed around ten regular paper color pages, then started jamming, we opened this machine for inspection and found some gears axles broken, next to the feeding motor. Chassis is very poor quality. This is a shame as all electronic and engineering seems of good quality. As well as the cartridges carriage. Samsung engineer really lost it at the chassis frame quality. Even the plastic that holds the scanner is by far much better quality. Also, support for the power supply socket broke very easily. Which is also integrated at the main chassis. Hope somebody from samsung see this comments. Samsung engineers efforts were lost because they tried to save plastic/money in the the main frame chassis; what a lemon printer. Please notice that all new printer are really poor quality plastic. Tons of features and really poor plastic quality. Don't buy chinese poor quality products, buy american, if you can find one !!!
I had trouble with this printer at first. The seller was excellent about communicating with me and sending a replacement immediately. The printer itself is good, especially for the price. It is up to about $500 for a new one. I am pleased so far with the quality. Note that the print diver that comes on CD w/ the unit is for windows XP only. Other drivers need to be downloaded from Samsung website. Another note is that I have not yet found a glossy laser paper that can go through without burning up in the fuser. If you like to print photos on glossy, be aware of this.
