Super Media Store has generic toner cartridges for only $34.99 with free shipping as well, so this printer's cost of operation shouldn't be that high.

I see:

I wonder what the quality will be like since the drum and toner are all one unit?

The reviews for that cartridge seem to be good. If I printed more I'd definitely get this.

Anyone know if there are linux drivers for it? I may grab it if so.

Yes, Samsung is very good about supporting a ton of OSes. It should work on any windows, mac, or linux pc. We've had an ML-1210 laser for a few years now and it's still working good. I'd be tempted to pick one of these up if I didn't already have 2 lasers.

That is the reason I am getting it. Pretty much any network printer will work with linux using the raw tcp printer driver however you don't get some of the advanced features of the printer using that. However there are samsung drivers for this model:

Thanks I knew it would work over the network, was wondering if there were native drivers. I am too lazy to look it up, and have been buying HP because of their good support.

Still may be a good buy, I need a new one for sure.

Well I just got it in. Not bad at all. Fast and very clear text:

Sorry kinda out of focus in some spots but there are a few in focus spots on the page ;-)

Like most reviews have mentioned the documentation is nil. Out of the box it could not pull a dhcp lease. Checking my logs on my dhcp server I see that it request the lease but then does not respond to it, strange. So I had to manually go to the default ip and use the web page to set it up right. Not too hard. The next complaint is that the web page does not have a page counter. I guess that is not too bad though. My friend has a cheap networked brother printer and the counter on it's web page is very inaccurate. We printed like 100 pages and it said that like 700 had been printed.. lol?

Good speed and very clear text. The printer file you need for cups is on the cd (see http://www.openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Samsung-ML-2571N) I haven't figured out how to install it in windows though :-/

I have only ran a few pages through it. In the next few weeks I might print out a couple of hundred maybe. I will be interested in if it overheats on long tasks like some of the cheaper brother printers.

A+++ will print again!

Ok I ran about 80 pages through it today. It was very speedy all the way through and never slowed down or anything. The printer it self really didn't even get that hot.

Ok friends, I'm looking for a decent Color Laser Printer, only willing to spend around $300-$400. The price of the replacement cartridges is also a big factor. I've seen some nice HP's out there for a decent price, but need to make sure I can buy the non OEM cartridges at one of the websites that offer cheap toner. Can anyone recommend a good laser printer? Thank you.

You'd probably get a better response if you posted a new thread under general hardware.

Welcome to the forums.

I saw an Ad for an HP CP2025DN printer for like $300 I think, but I can't seem to find the deal now. It's a color laser printer with duplexing. Since it's an HP it will likely work with everything, and it is easy to find new cartridges for it.

For toner I would recommend www.swiftink.com. http://www.swiftink.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=9
