This review is from: Adobe Acrobat XI Professional for Windows - Full Version
Pros: It seems to be stable - but make sure you keep up with updates if problem arise.
Cons: It can not scan two single-sided scans of a stack of documents and then collate them into the proper order when using a automatic document feeder equipped scanner as can Acrobat 9. It will handle duplex scanning when handled by the scanner. Why is this important? As anyone who does ADF scanning quickly learns is that the automatic document feeders don't really like documents that have been folded, crunched, or otherwise wrinkled. The document usually scans the first side just fine but jams when attempting to scan the second side. The solution is to scan the stack as two single-sided scans and then let Acrobat collate those pages appropriately as earlier Acrobat's did just fine. While not tested, I assume if you have a non-duplex scanner, collation probably works fine with two single sided scans.
Other Thoughts: Adobe's technical support is a 'challenge'. Even if you make it past the language barrier, knowledge of the personnel is limited. Be prepared to spend long times on hold as they try - the operative word here is 'try' to get an answer. The Adobe forums are not a lot better. I have had my issue on there for 3 weeks with '0' responses.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great printer for the money - especially when its on sale for under a hundred bucks. Its being used in a home 'wired' network and setup was easy for it and the systems attached to it. It is fast and has high quality print. It is nice that it comes with a 'full' toner cartridge rather than the so-called 'starter' cartridges that come with other manufacturers. (That's worth half of the price of the printer right there!)
Cons: It's recovery from paper jams can be a bit confusing - depending where the jam takes place inside the printer. On the topic of jams, they seem to occur exclusively when duplexing. Even when duplexing, there is a direct relationship with the quality of paper being used. Good quality paper results in far fewer jams - if any. This is not a new phenomenon - it has been a factor in jams since the very first LaserJet appeared in the 80's. (I was telephone support for that product at the time!) Watch for when high quality paper is on sale at the depot, max or staples. It will cost the same or less than the cheap stuff.
Other Thoughts: At this point, I can't speak to longevity but so-far-so-good.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great print quality - good speed - extremely easy network setup. Simply plugged it into the existing hardware network - ran the CD that came with the printer - and it worked perfectly. Loaded the CD in additional workstations with the same results. It replaced a 20 year old HP LaserJet 4 - hope the Samsung approaches the same longevity! Plus $89 shipping included - that's less than a toner cartridge for the LaserJet!
Cons: None yet.READ FULL REVIEW
