    Samsung M2885FW reviews

    Xpress M2885FW All-in-One Monochrome Laser Printer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great printer for the price! This printer does everything a small office could ask. The print quality is great, the print and scan speed is great, and the footprint is small - which allows each workstation to have a printer. The printer works with both wired and wireless setup - which we have both. It works perfectly with Windows 8.1, which is why we had to toss our HP laser jets (no driver support). Finally, the price was unbelievably inexpensive! Goodbye, HP! Hello, Samsung!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Samsung 288 I got this to primarily for scanning documents to my computer. The first day I set it up, the scan feature recognized all the computers on my home network. Now it will not recognize any. I have plugged it into my main computer via USB and it won't even recognize it during the scan process. I have spent hours trying to figure this out. I reinstalled it and it worked again, once. It seems every time it powers off it has to be reconfigured..? As a printer it does fine. Just don't intend on scanning anything.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from too many problems I've never had so many problems with any type of printer before. It won't print wirelessly and when I connect it , it says it is "offine" Keep checking the printer status in control panel and it is not marked offline. It's connected! What good is a printer that won't print! I deleted the printer and reinstalled the software and it did the same thing over and over! It also won't scan - can't find my computer on the scan feature. After 5 minutes of waiting on the scan, I gave up.. The worst is the fax. When the phone is connected to the machine and the machine is connected to the phone jack, it has a continuous dial tone so that the phone doesn't work. Even when the machine is directly connected to the phone line, it still won't fax. Even my computer tech was frustrated after 45 minutes on the phone with Samsung. Never did get resolved. This is going back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This purchase did not disappoint I have had my Xpress Printer M2885 for just two weeks, so far so great, meets and actually exceeds my home office needs. My primary goal was to purchase a solid non-color printer with two-sided printing capability and this printer meets those needs. It's nice to have the additional capability to copy and scan, not features I use often but have had occasion to use and am pleased with results. Again, based on two weeks of use, I would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Used as home business printer. Extremely easy to set up, works great as wireless printer with all of my devices (Apple or other brands). I found this printer printing faster then other much more expansive brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recent Purchase Right out of the box, setup was easy with basic instructions, taking about 30 mins. All features functioned flawlessly right from the start. Print speed is as stated and text is sharp. Has a small footprint for a MFP. Well worth the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Economical Printer ... I have not used the multi-function features as of yet (Scan & Fax Features) The Print Function is excellent and the Copy Function is Sufficiant for my uses.!!!! Great Value with Print Costs at $0.01 (a Penny) a Print.!!! I am retiring my lousy HP Multi-Function with Ink-Jet cartridges that cost at least 3 times more and provide 1/2 the # of Total Prints... Thanks Samsung ........ (but you won't get me to give up my iPhone) Cheers
