  • Tim Morgans 31 July 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Printer Land

    Very impressed with the service , speed of delivery and excellent value for money. I would recommend this printer and Printer Land to all future customers

  • B Parker 01 April 2018 3 / 5 Value 4 Features 4 Quality 2 Performance 2 Let down by faint printing

    This printer is well priced, has good features, can be used with Linux. We've had one for about 2-3 years (from the otherwise excellent Printerland people) and it has been faultless except in one important respect. The printing quality has always been a bit faint, but when a toner cartridge (own brand or any other) reaches about 2/3 full, the printing gets so faint the it has to be graded sub-standard. No amount of changing settings, cartridges or print drum permanently fixes the problem. We'll try Brother soon.

  • Aleem Ahmad 28 November 2017 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Best Price & Customer Service

    My Printerland account always helps me to chose the best product & provide the best price with free delivery.

  • naomi 28 September 2017 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 great service by staff Jake Cathcart

    Tested out my printer today and was extremely satisfied. Speed, wifi access and ease to set up is definitely a Yes, if you are happy just printing in black and white this printer is for you. I would also like to say a massive thank you to Jake Cathcart for calling me up and giving me such good customer service advice and recommending a printer exactly for my needs. Not only that saving me some money in the process. I would recommend printerland to anyone who needs a new printer with fast great service.

  • BARTEK 13 September 2017 3.25 / 5 Value 3 Features 4 Quality 2 Performance 4 Good until warranty expire

    It's our 3rd Samsung printer of exact type, other 2 broke down just week or two after warranty expired... Had enough of Samsung... def. moving to other brand!

  • Peter Gristwood 11 April 2017 4.75 / 5 Value 4 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Samsung M2885FW

    Excellent service. Agent called me to check that my order was what I wanted and advised me on the best options. Delivery was very quick and efficient. I'm still working my way through the options, though

  • Nick B 18 March 2017 4.75 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 4 An excellent economic monochrome all-rounder

    Have been using this for printing mainly since I bought it in Oct 2016. Can fault the quality or the speed of printing. A real workshorse. The printing from mobile etc is an excellent feature too. Only reason for a lower (4) on performance is that the scan & 'processing' speed seems slow. A minor niggle at this price - just buy it for the low cost and unprecedented quality.
