    Great...never go back

    The new laser printer is perfect - from start to finish the staff helped me understand the type of printer and the weight ...I was flying with it so had to get it in my luggage - on arrival it works beautifully and is so cost efficient in terms of ink compared to the other type i was using.......reduces having to think about when to buy more ink especially living on an island in the atlantic

    Samsung Review

    So far so good though some aspects seem rather flimsy (ADF tray and front cover) but quality is good.

    Samsung CLX-3185FN

    A very compact and well specified printer. Easy to setup for network printing on both Mac (10.6) and PC (Win 7). Setup of scanning over network a bit trickier but OK. Scanning is not as simple to use as some I've had due to lots of options. Only had this a week, so hard to comment on quality. Printerland delivered next day and all progressed smoothly.
