Samsung CLX-3185FW

 

A colour laser multifunction printer with fax, for under £300. That's a good start.

Poor Tech- and Linux Support

 

Great printer for a great price, especially when compared to InkJet alternatives; bought it during "Black Friday" craze of 2011.

If you have Windows, the various Software/Driver options offered from Samsung will make you a happy customer; However, anything else, especially Linux users, stay away from Samsung. While they do offer some version of binary drivers, they are outdated,...

Poor support

 

Prints beautiful pictures, prints relatively fast, price

Worked well until we were faced with a paper jam error. All links to newer firmware by Samsung over here do not work

A Vast improvement

 

I bought this for home use to replace a ink jet printer. the quality of the images is great. The ink last much longer than the inkjet cartridges. The scanning and copy functions have been very useful. We really have had no issues to mention

I would love if it had a higher quality scanner, but I can't really complain. Even on this one point, the quality is pretty good

Decent Unit For The Price, Has A Few Issues

 

I got this as a shell shocker for $99.99 and considering that the toner for my falling apart, six year-old KM Magicolor costs a minimum of $120.00 per cartridge it was kind of a no-brainer. The first thing I noticed is that unlike my KM (and my old...

- Poor Photo and Image Printing Quality - Terrible and Limited software for Scanning - No WiFi or Bluetooth Capability
