I have had the CLX-3175 for 2 months now. It was quite a bargain, cheaper than my inkjet, and blowing it away in almost every aspect. Well, except my wireless network connectivity was missing in action sometimes on my vista box, so I finally just direct usb'd it. Fantastic machine, my hats off to the koreans who developed it. It is a rare joy that one can spend money and truly get value for it. I feel gratitude to Samsung for producing such a product. Thanx Fellas.

Only have unit 3 days. I LOVE IT even though I have not yet connected all the multifunction aspects of this very-inexpensive-LASER and COLOR printer. I print business cards for my clients and when my HP Laser died on me I was doubious about purchasing the SAMSUNG, however this little dynamo unit prints on the heavier paper without dragging (double printing) on the last two cards. Thank you SAMSUNG you've done an excellent job and kept the price affordable.
