    July 8th, 2011

    Since December 2010 I've installed 4 sets of cartridges at a cost of around £600.
    The toner cost is outrageous. The toner cartridges that came with the machine needed replacing in under a month and at £150+ for a set, the cost of consumables is out of control.

    Now the info screen tells me that it requires a new imaging unit (another £110 IF I choose to go ahead). The imaging unit was supposed to last 18000 pages but I don't reckon I've printed more than 6000. So I'm not happy!!
    Sheets are costing me 10p per page to print and now another consumable is failing to reach its anticipated lifespan.
    I raised the issue of toner cost with Samsung. Initially their answer was "nothing to do with us." Now the imaging unit is on its way out, I've written to them again and am currently awaiting a response.

    Machine still worked fine after 3 months. Difference of opinion among users about the cost of toner replacements. One set of toner came with the machine (not full cartridges) and lasted about six weeks. I've installed another and find that 5 to 6 weeks for me is about the expectation.

    The main reason I moved to laser was that I though that the inkjet cartridge costs were unreasonable. Now I find the laser toner replacements are costing more than double the inkjet cost!!. My advice if your thinking of buying is seriously look into the overall running cost before you buy. The price tag of £300 ish up front is very attractive, but be prepared for the ongoing operational cost.

    I, like some other users who have commented, had a bit of a problem with the Wi-Fi from a laptop. I found I needed to uninstall the software and then re-install. That seems to have fixed the issue.

    I ordered a Samsung CLX-3185FW as a replacement for a HP Colour Laserjet 2550 that was 8 years old.
    Colour reproduction on colour printing was so bad I thought the samsung printer must have had a fault so I sent it back and ordered an identical replacement.
    The replacement came, and had identical shockingly bad colour output, patchy, faded, all round poor. I sent it back.
    Colour output is no better than draft mode. If you want a decent colour laser printer then stay well clear of this model. I wont be going anywhere near Samsung printers again.

    I bought a Samsung CLX 3185FW in December 2011 for my personal use at work; once I had seen how good it was, and how reasonably priced, I bought one for my study at home. I have long wanted a multifunction laser at home, but the cost has always been so prohibitive that I've never bothered until now. This thing is priced at almost half the cost of a comparable rival machine - that is perhaps why consumables tend to be on the pricier side. That said, for SOHO use, it's perfectly reasonable. I've set my computers up to print in B/W as a default, and only to print in colour when I specifically need it. As a result, my work machine has got through one black catridge (the initial one had 1,250 pages in it, compared to 1,500 as standard for the normal cartridge) and hardly any colour has been used - I only use colour in client communications, which are relatively infrequent from my machine. My personal machine has used a bit more colour, but after 3 months and 318 mono prints and 31 colour prints, is still on over 90% for all colours, and 62% for black.

    It is always far far more expensive to print in colour than mono on a laser machine - and a colour machine is more expensive to print mono than a mono only machine. This isn't designed for high volume printing - if you're doing vast amounts of colour printing, you need to invest in a machine designed to do that.

    After reading all the reviews on here, I did a few quick calculations. My ancient trusty Samsung ML-1710 mono laser (to purchase a similar model is about £40) costs about 2.5p per page; this costs about 3.1p per page mono and 12.3p per page in colour. For comparison, a mid-range professional laser such as, for example, the Xerox WorkCentre 6400 (about £4,700) is 1.4p per page mono and 6.8p per page colour.

    Initially we couldn't have been more happy with this printer. When hardwired in the print quality was good and fast. The copying and scanning functions were also easy to use.

    However, we had several problems setting up the wireless functionality which, to date, has been tempremental.

    Following on from this the cartridges are expensive and dont last very long. We replace toner every couple of weeks and our usage isn't that heavy. Most frustraing of all, Samsung have decided to make it near impossible to print in black and white only so when one colour runs out we loose complete use of our printer. Which for a small business spells disaster.

    On top of this we had to replace the imaging unit within six months which was expensive and a nightmare to organise as Samsung customer "support" is an endless drama of call centres and reference numbers.

    Just this morning the excess toner tank has died. This means we can't use our printer again!

    The most irritating thing is, you get little to no warning when these things need replacing so then you are left having to make a hurried order for replacement parts.

    That said when the thing is working is is fast and the quality is excellent. All of this is totally useless when the thing isn't working.
