Pros: The print looked good, while it lasted.
Cons: The cartridge unexpected started printing with a faded area down the left side of the page after about 3,500 pages. I print quite a few envelopes and the faded area was about the location where the envelope flap is. The monitoring software indicated 25% cartridge left. I contacted Samsung to let them know if that I had an issue, and to find out If this is a product defect or unique to my cartridge. They could not have cared less. They said it was not their issue, contact the reseller.
So if you do a per page analysis and determine that it is cheaper to buy a high capacity cartridge, reconsider that if there is a possibility that there is a defect, and you only get the same amount of pages as the regular cartridge. An issue, which Samsung did not deem worthy of their time.
I myself just ordered a regular cartridge and will avoid the higher capacity ones.
This review is from: Samsung ProXpress SL-M3320ND/XAA Monochrome Laser Printer
Pros: Crisp image, fast and has duplex mode. Easy to install, just plug in the LAN cable and install the software. No issues. The http connection to the printer gives a lot of useful information.
Cons: I would give this printer more eggs, it were not for the ridiculous amount of status/error pages it generates, which wastes paper and toner. If you are planning on printing a lot of envelopes, I would not recommend this printer. Almost every switch from plain paper to envelope results in one duplex status page, followed by a single sided status page. It is really a waste of resources. I had one sequence where I printed 5 envelopes and it resulted in 10 status pages.
If you print out several pages in a row, they do get hot, which is not a big deal to me, but it might be to some.
The toner is very expensive. I bought the 5,000 sheet toner and it cost $100. A lot more expensive then the competition. If you print a lot, it would probably be better to buy a more expensive printer with a cheaper toner. However, the 3,000 sheet toner which came with the printer lasted me 4 months, so I am not concerned.
