Pros I had an HP 6P for 10 years and needed to replace it. I checked out all the reviews and while I was biased towards HP, I decided to be open-minded. A friend had had their Samsung laser printer for 3 years and it worked great, so I included Samsung in wi
Cons It is a little loud on warm-up, but then it quiets down nicely. The warm-up time can be a few seconds for the first copy, but who really cares? After the first copy, the printer just nails them one after another. I see no faults in this printer and wou
Pros Good print quality; Reasonably economical
Cons The envelope feed mechanism is not reliable.
Summary The envelope feed broke about a week after I purchased the printer a couple years ago. It was under warranty so no problem. Almost exactly two years after purchase the envelope feed broke again. The printer is not under heavy use, perhaps two envelopes and 50 pages a month.
The authorized service center charges $75 just to look at the printer with repairs going up from there. The next printer will not be a Samsung.
If reliability is an issue, look elsewhere.

Pros Decent print quality
Cons Noise, noise, noise; back sticks out making it difficult to place
Summary All you really need to know about this printer is that it is incredibly noisey - both on warm up, and when (and after) you print a page. The noise continues for around 15 minutes each time and to say it is irritating really doesn't do its level of disturbance justice. I would never have bought this printer if I had known just how loud it is.
In its defence I have to say it prints okay - but then they pretty much all do today.
After my bad experience with the Samsung ML-2250 I bought a similarly priced HP printer for my office and its silent, which to me after the Samsung, really is bliss!
Unless you wear head phones while working at your computer, or work next to a building site and no longer care, do not buy this printer. It will drive you nuts!
Pros Very Fast, easy setup, good print quality
Cons Must have X installed on Linux box to install drivers. Odor when first installed, but fades with time.
