Bought a laser printer because my old ink jet died. I don't print stuff out very often so the ink was always drying up, so a laser seemed the best choice.
Unboxing was easy. I had spotted that it comes WITHOUT A USB LEAD, but was delighted to find that it would accept the same lead as my old printer.
It prints nicely, lighter than my old inkjet, which I think used too much ink for the cheap paper I use. So I can now get finer lines.
I was initially confused that it seems impossible to turn off via the control buttons, you press them and it goes into standby mode. However I just left it and it turns itself off. Problem solved.
I would recommend this for anyone who, like me, rarely prints things off. Not that it cant do large runs, but that since it wont dry up you can go months between prints without clogging.

Came promptly, well boxed, with feed tray at front and output on top. Took some thought unpacking as the diagrams for all the blue-pull tapes were a bit small and vague. Squeezing all those piccies plus a wodge of warranty text onto two sides of one A4 sheet really was a bit optimistic...
The printer was lower and an inch wider than its predecessor, so I had to shuffle my desk's printer shelf.
Printer came with both UK and Euro(3pin) leads. A USB cable was NOT included.
Note that the 'pocket' with the USB socket only suits *slim-line* 'B' plugs. My old printer's cable had a 'chunky' 'B' plug, which would not fit. Fortunately, I had a spare, slim-line cable.
My XP(#3) recognised the printer but lacked drivers. It only took a couple of minutes to slurp them off the CD-ROM supplied.
The installation software covers both this USB-only printer and the -W which has WiFi too. There's an option during installation to select which-- DO NOT select WiFi, else printer will be very, very puzzled...
Finally, there's an option to print a test page. Rather than an unnecessary advert for the product, it kindly lists printer driver and port settings.
For power saving, the M2022 naps quicker and wakes faster than my old printer. For economy, it has a bunch of facilities for setting the appropriate quality for a job.
I got ten years out of my old ML-1210, which only failed due to glazed rollers causing a paper crush, clearing which broke several feed guides. Hopefully, the M2022 will be as reliable. Still, I've taken a 3-yr warranty to be sure, to be sure...
PS When you plug in the power cable, don't forget to turn printer ON at the top-right key-pad; there's no mains switch on the back !!!

I have had some absolutely RUBBISH printers and I let out a sigh of relief every time I use this. It is easy to use, I used it right out of the box, I've never had one problem, the ink last ages - it just does what you want it to.
Printers and I have never had a happy relationship, but this one is brilliant.

THis is a really high quality printer that turns out print very fast. After the initial toner runs out, you do get stuck with a high price point on a new cartridge though. Check prices before you buy just so you are aware of the running costs.

We used to have the Samsung M2010 mono laser printer which worked very well for about 10 years before becoming unreliable,so I was naturally interested when I saw Amazon were selling this at a ridiculously low price.It was very simple and easy to set up,although I am very tempted to knock a star of my rating for Samsung not providing a cable to connect it to the pc.Fortunately,the one from the old printer is the same so it wasn't a problem,but it's worth bearing in mind.Other than that,I have only praise for this little printer.It's lightweight and compact,fast,up to 20 pages a minute,which is much faster than my old one,provides a very good image and text quality,is reasonably quiet and has enough printing options to suit most people who just want a mono printer.So far,I've had absolutely no problems with it and would definitely recommend it as I think it's fantastic value even at the rrp,but especially at Amazon's price.

I had been using a small Lexmark printer for nearly 12 years which unfortunately I had to replace. Space was a priority as was the fact that the Samsung M2022 allowed for manual feeding of paper; I can therefore continue to use the (blank) reverse side of correspondence). Really pleased with my purchase and would recommend this printer to any one who is satisfied with a basic model.

As my title suggests, this is a great alternative to an Inkjet printer, I have had a couple of Inkjet printers over the past couple of years and they have failed me, the first and oldest one just gave up the ghost with error lights and basically Epson said it meant one or more components had reached the end of its lifecycle. Had another 3-in-1 Epson which would be fine for a while then start printing in a shade of pink and sometime tinted in blue, ran the head cleaning various times, got it right once and then failed second time round. Anyway, enough about my past experience with Inkjets. After looking around in search of a printer that would do what I need it do do, and do it properly, I decided on this Samsung model, at a price that was hard to beat and a Genuine Toner coming in @ just over £35 for a 1000+ page printing quantity I went for it, comes with a 500+ page starter Toner which is a bonus :) I only need it to print postage stamps from my Royal Mail account and the occasional document and this is suiting really nice. Comes with both UK and US power lead but no cable, had one from previous printer, nothing to moan about here! Print quality is excellent, no drying times or waiting because it prints so fast, like someone else pointed out on an earlier model, my first use of the printer with a document, the paper came out so fast I thought it had just fed the paper through without actually printing! It does smoke a little when the print is coming out, but this is fine, the paper and toner are fused @170 degree's! Plus I have old paper that had been sat around that would be cold/moist. Anyway, great printer, great price, cheap to run, does the job without getting the hump! Recommended!

Generally quite a solid printer, but the only way to connect it to your machine is via a USB cable, and the manufacturer failed to include one, which is a pretty glaring omission, and a problem I've never had with any other printer. The installation CD also makes it seem as though you can connect to your printer wirelessly, which is not, in fact, the case. For both these reasons, I'd advise buying the wireless enabled model. For an extra ten pounds you get a plethora of wireless and mobile print options, including NFC and google cloud print. Given that you'll need to spend a few pounds on a USB cable just to get this model working, it hardly costs any more for the upgrade. Wishing I'd read the fine print, and spent the extra tenner now!

This is an ideal printer for those who do very little printing (me) pretty good quality when they do. It has a very small footprint, is easy to load, doesn't appear to suffer from paper jams and is very easy to configure. I like it!

Before you are allowed to print, you MUST AGREE TO SHARE YOUR DATA WITH SAMSUNG.
There is no opt-out of this.
What the f*** is this, a printer should combine ink and paper. Not sell your keystrokes.
