Consumer review by:

Great personal laser printer.


In my opinion, for a cheap personal / home-office laser printer, you can't beat this.

Very simple wireless connectivity ; Extremely simple setup ; Fast & quiet ; Quality laser prints

So far, nothing negative about the printer ; If you are looking for faster or higher duty cycle, you need to spend a bit more then this

Consumer review by:

Nice printer for the cost.


Nice printer, especially for the cost. There are a couple of downsides, but not enough for me to not recommend the printer.

Compact size, quick print speed, solid print quality

Toner cartridges are hard to come by. I had to special order one. Print jobs via WiFi (Mac OSX 10.6) take a long time to spool. The fuser sometimes takes a while to warm up and has, although very rarely, caused my circuit breaker to break. This issue

Works Great


I have printed thousandd of pages with great results. Had to shake original toner cartridge a couple times to get the full amount of printed pages rated, but it did produce as stated. Great value!

Fast! Great compact printer! Has worked very well for me. Great Value

Does not like paper that has any wrinkles ; If you understand loading fresh paper nicely in the feed tray, then it should be an excellent printer! has been for me

Great Printer


Pros- It just simply works. I don't print every day. Like most casual people, you print a few pages a week. I got tired of dealing with expensive ink replacement every time I wanted to print something because the ink dried out. This laser printer fixes...

Cons - Black and White only. I don't need color

Good value


I've used an earlier Samsung model 1710 for years and found it to be reliable for light to medium use. When I needed a laser printer for another location, decided to try the model 1865W, which I use in hard wire mode. Although the construction seems...

1st one came DOA, 2nd is perfect


I was more than slightly annoyed when the first one came in DOA (never had that happen before). Return shipping was pretty expensive, but Newegg CS was awesome as usual and gave me a return shipping label for free. The second one has fared a lot...

Small size, prints fast, wireless conection. Good price for a laser printer

First one came DOA (-1 egg for that). Other than that I can't really think of anything

Consumer review by:

good inkjet replacement


I bought this printer as a replacement for my home inkjet printer because the cost of ink was too high. The printer seems to be doing a great job, and I am happy with my purchase.

This printer is smaller than I imagined it would be. It is also quieter and faster than the inkjet printer it replaced. Wireless setup was fast and worked the first time, even though the printer had to use USB first in order to change wireless settings

There is no wireless setup on the device itself; wireless needs to be set up over a USB connection after the driver is installed ; Also, the user manual is on the cd, and there wasn't a paper copy included with the printer. This isn't necessarily a bad...

Very Nice


It's compact, tidy (no messy ink cartridges), and wireless. It was easy to set up and makes nice clean documents.
