Pros: Dirt cheap. No features. Actually comes with some toner in it, unlike HP. Wires directly into network or USB connects to your computer. Full duplex.
Cons: Toner is scarce and expensive. Not available at my local staples. I expected this, but 5000 pages for $105 is not too bad. Dims the lights when it prints.
Overall Review: This is the perfect "black box" printer for a home office. I got it on sale from Newegg and it barely cost more than a toner cartridge.
Pros: Good build quality, attractive price.
Cons: Software doesn't effectively change printer settings, problems with MP tray feeds. Limited online support.
Overall Review: M3820DW seems to be a better option. Can override default settings through menu system on printer, which cannot be done with software.
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.
Pros: Cheap entry point into a laser printer - $85
easy to set up
does not seem to use a lot of toner
Cons: Toner Replacements cost more than the printer - $108
Similar to wireless Samsung unit, but no wireless. I don't need it anyways
Overall Review: First laser at hope replacing an HP Ink jet which started to have problems. I use HPs at work all day and a few others, this Samsung has been outstanding. The family prints a fair amount but maybe only 100 a month and it immediately comes out. No waiting around like the inkjet, often many minutes.
Pros: hmm.... well it worked for a month or so.
Cons: always getting jammed, and i have tried to fix it according to steps online. I have to fight with it constantly, i want to take it to the top of my roof and toss it, or re-enact the printer scene from the movie Office Space.
Overall Review: I wish I didn't buy it.
Pros: Very fast
Can print to with Samsung phones/tablets
Windows software is good
Cons: Most expensive 3k/5k toner on the market
Dims lights and occasionally blows circuit during warmup (last two laser printers, Lexmark and HP, didn't do this)
OSX/Linux printing is very buggy.
Ridiculously hot after 10+ pages. Fan heats room.
Overall Review: Decent printer, but low cost is negated the moment you buy toner. I have the SL-M3370FD at work and although it is a cheap multifunction printer, the scanner/fax doesn't duplex like most competing products, and toner is equally expensive. Just can't recommend these Samsung printers...
Pros: I got this printer when it was on sale for ~$90 which is not a bad price for a laser printer with this printer's specifications. The warmup and printing is relatively quick for a printer of its cost.
Cons: The toner is much more expensive than toner for other laser printers. In the long run, it would be more cost efficient to go with a more expensive printer with the same specifications but cheaper toner.
In addition to this, while printing, I have run into a lot of memory errors with this printer where it will stop a job, and start all over again, i.e. print from pages 1-38 out of a 50 page job, print an error message, then start over with the same job, which is incredibly annoying since it has a memory standard of 128gb and the file size for many of the files I print are < 1gb.
You will end up wasting a lot more money on toner and paper than you will save getting this printer on sale!
Pros: My Friend and I both have the same printer for over 5 years? Never had a problem or issue.
Very reliable and fast compared to other printers we have owned.
Very good quality prints
Very reasonably priced print cartridges that last over 5,000 sheets
High duty cycle
Used everyday for school and networks great even in linux
Cons: Have to buy Samsung Cartridge because of a chip on the cartridge. I have never been able to find an OEM cartridge that worked.
It wants to stay on all the time, but will go to sleep to conserve electricity, so I put it on a switch to turn it on in the morning and to shut it off during the night.
Overall Review: I would most definitely recommend this printer for home to small business use. I love this printer and has become my favorite B & W Lazer printer. It has beat every printer I have ever owned.
