Samsung CLX-3305FW

 

The Samsung CLX-3305FW is small enough to serve as a personal color laser MFP.

Ethernet and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi Direct for easy printing from mobile devices. Prints. Scans. Copies. Faxes.

Slow. No duplexer. Only 150-sheet input capacity.

Good Deal

 

I wouldn't recommend this printer for any kind of heavy daily use. But, it is excellent for home use with the occasional large project.

Picked this up from NewEgg for $180. It's been nothing but easy sailing for us with it. Ink use is where I would expect it. Not a single paper Jam yet ; Print quality is good but not excellent but, this is not a high end printer so as long as you don't...

Warm up time can be a little slower than I would like. Not a big deal but occasionally it will print the first page after 15 seconds then I will have to wait for another 10 for it to start printing the rest. 25ish seconds of wait is a little slower...

Great color laser printer

 

Finally rid of all inkjet printers. Prints fairly fast, great quality, scans and copies well. Wireless/ethernet on back. USB input in front. Settings are intuitive and navigable. We'll see about the durability, but the initial quality is on par or...

Only thing I can knock it for is the paper tray at the bottom; it sticks out about 4 inches in front. Aesthetically, not that pleasing

Samsung CLX-3305FW Wireless 4 in 1 Color Multifunction Printer

 

The printer works great, but the wirelsss connection setup is very confusing. It'd be easier if the display panel offers wifi setup instructions. One of major problems I see now is the cartridge, it cost $60 a piece and it requires four of them. At the...

Don't buy Samsung

 

I have similar series printer and it is terrible, the quality is great but cost is high and when it runs out of one color, it doesn't work anymore. I really hate it and recommend you don't buy Samsung if your thinking to do so.I feel ripped off. Thanks...

This product is user friendly and trouble free since we got it in September, 2013.

 

" Setting it up was a breeze. Technical support online is superb. I got the drives needed to integrate the printer into our computer multi operating systems (i.e. windows XP, Windows 7 & 8). I highly recommend this product. "

Bright display , Inexpensive , Durable , Realistic color

Does not connect to wifi, website and documentation is poor

 

" I am fairly competent with a computer but this printer does not consistently connect to my wifi. It works about once per 4 attempts to send documents to it. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it several times and it still doesn't work. The website is...
