The Printer is excellent. But today Laptop Computers don't necesseraly have a CD-drive. This is why I had to download the Installation software from the Samsung Homepage which took some extra time. Why not add a CD and a USB-stick. I am sure some future clients would appreciate this.

I was looking for an all-in-one laser machine for a while to replace my existing ink-jet Lexmark and finally settled on this one, figuring that Samsung would make a premier product. I was wrong. To start with, this unit has extreme difficulty with scanning and sending documents to a computer, no matter if it is connected via usb or wireless. I can remember at least 4 times that I had to go into the print manager to reset the settings because somehow the settings would change on their own. Even when the settings are correct, you have to go through the entire scan menu twice--the first time for it to tell you that no computer is connected, and the second time for it to work. This brings me to my second issue with this unit. There is not a 1-touch scan option, as in: you insert the document and press scan, and presto! it is on your computer. No, that simple feature is for less expensive machines. On this machine, you have to: insert your document, turn the machine on and let it warm up, press the Scan button and hope it finds your computer, and if it does, press okay 8 times in the Scan Menu to begin the scan. Since it probably won't find your computer, plan to perform steps 3 and 4 again. Third; plan on having to change your printer settings once every two weeks or so, since they never seem to stick. I could go on about my disappointment with this machine, but I have to run out. My advise would be to look elsewhere. Samsung has a lot of room for improvement on this one.

    Comments about Samsung Multifunction Laser Printer Xpress M2885FW:

    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.

            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.

The NFC (Share and Connect) feature prints data from our phones which is cool feature. We very happy with this model as well as the Brand. A very nice surprise.Thanks...
