Excellent printer; works great with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and AirPrint,
This review is from: Samsung ML-2525W Black Mono Laser Printer (Wireless) (Personal Computers)
I received this printer as a gift at Christmas, to replace an ageing HP all-in-one inkjet. The printer is well-packaged, and includes a UK power cable, a European power cable, a USB cable, a driver CD and assorted paperwork. A toner cartridge is already pre-installed (though you'll have to take it out and remove the safety tape from it before you can use it). The package does not include an ethernet cable, so if you plan to directly attach it to a wired network, make sure you have a spare cable - but presumably you bought this model to use it wirelessly.
Setup was very straightforward. I'm a Mac user, and connected the printer via USB to an iMac running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Upon switching the printer on, Snow Leopard will automatically ask if you want to download and install suitable drivers (the printer's specific model was recognised automatically). I did so, and the printer was immediately available as a local printer - I didn't need the driver CD.
For wifi setup, I used the Wifi Setup utility from the driver CD to choose my wifi network and enter the relevant password. The printer's default configuration to connect to an access point and obtain an IP address via DHCP worked fine, and I didn't need to tweak any of it. There was an initial delay when waiting for the Wifi Setup utility to finish, but I resolved it by simultaneously adding the printer via Bonjour on the iMac (using System Preferences -> Print and Fax). The printer was then available wirelessly. I chose to share the printer via the iMac, and it was then available immediately to all machines on my local network, without any further configuration. The whole process from opening the box to printing test pages took less than 15 minutes.
For AirPrint support, I used the third-party utility Printopia (again on the iMac), which makes the printer (and any other printers you may have) wirelessly available for printing from iOS devices (iPads, iPhones and iPod touches using iOS 4.2 or later). This printer does not support AirPrint natively (only certain new HP models do at time of writing), but Printopia allows you to trivially enable AirPrint for any printer which your Mac recognises, including this one.
Everything works flawlessly. The printer consumes only 0.8W in power-save mode (or up to 60W in full-ready standby), and prints very quickly and cleanly. This is my first Samsung printer, and so far it's been a hassle-free home-office workhorse which I can forget about until I need it, at which point it performs reliably. Well worth the money.
