Free shipping or in-store pickup.
Full specs are here.
Replacement toner at about $29 per cartridge is cheap compared to other laser printers.
Before buying, be sure to read the reviews.
Some people loved this printer, some hated it.
We used this printer since December when it was first on sale.
It is very convenient to print from any laptop or mobile device anywhere on our Wifi network.
The 120 pages we printed all look great, and we like this printer for occasional use.
The printer was as easy to put on the network as plugging in an Ethernet cable.
Then, the Samsung drivers (located under the Manuals & Downloads section, choose Mac, Windows, or Linux download) privide an easy way to configure the printer.
Some reviewers had issues using the Wifi settings.
These problems can be avoided by using an Ethernet cable instead of the Wifi.
Any Wifi device on your network (smartphone, tablet, laptop) can print to the printer through the Ethernet cable connected to your router or switch.
We love this little inexpensive printer , and recommend it to any home or small office.
The availability of cheap third-party replacement cartridges is one of our favorite "features" of Samsung and Dell printers.
Search Ebay for C1760nw Toner, C410W Toner and M2830DW Toner to find replacement ink cartridges at about $20 to $30 for black toner, and anywhere from $6 to $30 per color cartridge (for the color laser printers).
Beware, those use "TLC" memory to store your data.
While this new technology performs fast, they can be fairly unreliable technology and could give bad news for those who do not keep good backups of their data.
Team Dark L3 240GB Solid State Drive for $60 (25¢/GB).
If performance (speed of reads and writes) and reliability are most important, check out the Samsung 850 EVO-Series Solid State Drives.
They include a 5-year warranty, and rated one of the best performing, most reliable SSDs on the market today.
If data security is important, check out a Samsung 850 "Pro" solid state drive.
It is also one of the best performing, most reliable SSDs on the market, and has built-in hardware AES encryption (if your laptop supports it).
These are also backed by a 10-year warranty.
To see if your laptop is compatible with hardware encryption, boot to the BIOS (normally F1, F8, F10, or DEL on bootup), look under its Security settings, and see if your laptop has a "HDD Password" or "Hard Disk Encryption" setting (example video). Note that this is separate than the BIOS's password, supervisor password, and boot passwords. If you do have a hard disk encryption password feature, your laptop can automatically encrypt your entire Samsung 850 Pro SSD without needing special decryption software, protecting your data if your laptop is stolen.
