I LOVE this printer!
Only con with this printer is that the wireless setup was a MAJOR pain in the ass! I had to call Samsung’s tech support, and allowed the level 2 tech support to log onto my computer (I was able to monitor the entire process on my screen) and finally had to plug the printer and laptop into my wireless router before tech support was able to get it working. I believe the issue/problem was that the printer ships with something called “wifi direct” enabled, and this meant that the printer was trying to act as it’s own wireless access point or some other gobledegook, and once the tech support logged into the printer’s wireless setup and disabled the wifi direct, then he was able to get the setup/installation software to finish installation, and all has worked fine (knock on wood) ever since! Setup should not have been nearly so difficult, Samsung should be shipping these printers with the wifi direct turned off, since it wasn’t at all necessary to connect this printer to my network.
One final note about toner cartridges. Some people complain about the relatively short life of the toner cartridge that (sometimes) comes with these printers. Those toners are only “starter” cartridges, and don’t print thousands of pages. I’m still on my starter toner, and have printed probably 200-300 pages so far and it says that I still have about 42% toner remaining. Anyway, I’ve already purchased an “xl” (long life) replacement toner cartridge for this printer, it was about $80 online, but should easily last for thousands of pages, making printing with a laser printer (vs. an inkjet) much more cost effective, plus I’ve never known of toner to “dry out” like ink does in inkjet printers.
To summarize buy this printer if you need a great household wireless network printer, that easily prints from Samsung wireless devices (and any brand of laptop) as long as they’re all on your wireless network!
Wireless is like magic
So far Great!
Contrary to one review, the wireless installation went seamlessly on my network and three computers using the limited instructions that came in the box. There is a pdf manual available on the included CD that I have not reviewed.
For someone like me that prints the majority of documents in B&W I’m expecting to break even in a year based in ink savings.
The bottom line that made the difference on choosing the Samsung is that it comes with a regular sized cartridge versus a starter cartridge for the Brother. I estimate this is worth at least $25.
Nice printer especially for the money.
So Far So Good (iMac)
If you’re on a Mac without a CD/DVD reader then you’ll need to go here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/howtoguide/N0000192/9314/117803/SL-M2825DW/XAA
This link will let you download a wireless configuration tool needed to setup the printer.
If you want to setup with USB go here and download the driver http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/SL-M2825DW/XAA
It feels robust and was fairly painless to install once I knew what pieces to download. My only recommendation to Samsung would be to include drivers either by USB drive or something similar.
High quality, high speed
Goes into and comes out of sleep mode quickly
Great quality text on the page
Would buy it again
easy to use…
For those who have dedicated printers for their color needs such as pics and wish not to use same for text needs, this is the machine (or one like it) to own.
Great little printer – not good for envelopes or laid bond paper
I would like to have kept the printer since it seemed to work fine otherwise. I could not keep it because it did not work for my application. Even plain paper envelopes smeared. I wish there had been a fix for this.
