I've got an older version of this printer and it has been brilliant. After 4 years I'm still on the cartridge that it came with! (To be fair I don't do a great deal of printing). Laser FTW.
Nice compact printer which is what I'm looking for. Unfortunately not wireless and I can't be bothered with cables. Voted hot anyway as it's a good price.

This prompted me to have a look around and a similar wireless version on Amazon is £72.60

Reviews on the Amazon model aren't great, but to be fair most are complaining about lack of wireless support for Mac OS (although one review says this is not an issue). The model in this post says it has Mac support so maybe it's different.

Just bought Dell 1250c from Tesco for £49.99 using voucher code and it's very good printer with cheap replacement cartridges available but you are getting the colour laser for the same price so I think it's a better buy. My Dell has also been supplied with 700 pages cartridges.
I like SAMSUNG lasers, got an old 4600 mono and a colour wireless job, although the toner isn't all that cheap - absolutely perfect if you have a student in the house.
This is a TERRIBLE printer - avoid at all costs for one reason. The damn thing has a chip in it and when your toner has printed a certain number of pages - even if still 90% full - the current toner cartridge is disabled and you are forced to buy a new very expensive one!!!!

And if you do get one - listen to Samsung and don't buy "counterfeit" replacement cartridges - they may cause your house to explode or steal your wife!

These are brilliant printers for the price, used the ML2010 daily (and heavily) for the last three years without any fault at all. Would gladly recommend to others.

I have a samsung scx-4300 and have experienced the same thing. It is simply theft to tell me that my toner needs replacing, at £50 a pop, when it doesn't. I bought a replacement chip on ebay and then worked out that just taping over the chip worked. You can then just rest the toner 'count' on the machine and continue to use the toner, this generally doubles the life of the toner but I have had well over 8000 prints from a 2000 page toner, with no noticeable reduction in quality, simply by topping it up with £6 worth of toner.. £144 saved.
I then replaced the toner with one from ebay for £15 and again can't notice the difference to the £50 samsung one.
Cracking printer but daylight robbery in lying about the state of the toner and making people believe they need a new one when simply they don't. Rather contrary to Samsung's recycling and eco friendly policy.
To be honest it isn't bad, but as a previous poster said you do have far too many Samsung models to select from. As with all cartridges they are either chipped or fused these days. Someone somewhere has found a work around, I have a small Samsung ML 1660 that I use (plus it was free from Viking) occasionally. The starter cartridge ran out the other day, quick look on ebay refill bottle and new chip only £5.85 including delivery, can't complain.

True that, but it is the only way printer manufacturers like Samsung can make any money out of these. The refill outfits only have to source spare toner, so their overheads are much lower. Samsung has to find profit to take care of CS, drivers and future development as well as keeping shareholders sweet.

Lexmark has thrown in the towel and is bowing out of the inkjet printer business.
