I've been using one of these color CLX-6260 series laser printers for 10 months. I've printed about 1,100 pages in color and 1,700 pages in black. All of the toner cartridges have 1-3% left. (I state this to give you an idea of how many pages you can get out of the "starter" toner cartridges that come with the printer. You get more pages out of the refill cartridges from what I understand.)

Overall I have been very happy with this printer. It is fast and not super noisy. The text and graphics are very clean looking. It works great with my Windows PC and has been fairly easy to set up. The menus are a bit confusing, but once you learn where everything is then things go smoother when navigating. Copying and scanning has also met my expectations. It should be noted that the 6260FD model that I have has a duplexer so it can print on both sides of the page; however the scanner does not have this option so making double sided copies is a manual process (copy one side, then flip and copy the other).

I have two recommendations for improvement... The auto-installation of drivers, an option that is available using the Samsung diagnostic software, should probably be avoided as I have had it install older versions of the drivers when I already had the "latest" installed. Additionally I have had it create "copy 1," "copy 2," etc. printer objects that I ended up having to delete. Another issue I have run into is the diagnostic software/installer has occasionally installed the driver that does not support duplex printing. For these reasons I have learned to manually install and update the drivers instead of using the software that comes with the printer (and that can be downloaded from the web). (Note: Future versions of the diagnostic software may correct these issues.)

The other suggestion I have involves the firmware for the printer. I know the old adage... "if it ain't broken, don't fix it:" however I find it hard to believe that since July 2013 there hasn't been any firmware updates to fix flaws in the printer's microcode. I have thoroughly checked the Samsung website looking for newer firmware, but I can't find any. I would like to see Samsung make their firmware available freely (and visibly) available in the support area of their website. Also, IMO if no code is released within two years of releasing a product to the consumer market then you risk sending the signal that you aren't actively supporting the product. I am sure that the firmware for this printer is not perfect. :)

Overall, I really like this printer and hope to continue to use it for years to come.

When printing single sided, the printer works fine, but when printing in duplex mode, the back side of each page has large gaps, compressed text, and jumbled images. A review online reported the same problem, which could not be resolved (for me or for the other reviewer). I am now sending in the printer for servicing (it is brand new). Hopefully they can fix the faulty part or otherwise resolve the issue! If so, it would be a great printer at a great price. But if it doesn't work, that's not really a good deal!

    I have owned the 680ND for a few years. The printer consistently prints well. The toner cartridges load in the front (latch above the aux paper tray). The aux paper tray is also in the front. The printer prints fast, paper and toner load in front (vs the sides), and the print colors look excellent. The printer also has a small footprint and weighs less than comparable models. The only downside is the paper tray is a bit flimsy. Overall, A+.

      This printer is not what it is advertised,it will only print on thin standard paper. It will not print the right color shading if you print color pictures. If you need only text on thin standard paper at a reasonable speed then this printer is OK.

              Comments about Samsung CLX-6260FW:

              The printing preferences tabs are confusing. One feature that could be a little more seamless is scan to email. You can't just scan to email and your email screen pop up with the document attached. You have to scan doc, find it in your computer and then attach. This sophisticated of a machine should do that if you want it to. There is a last settings option. You think it will print something just like your last print. But no - if you have opened an older document that has been printed in the past - it prints it like it did 3 weeks ago. Not like a document you printed 3 min ago.

                    Because there was Linux support for this printer I bought it. But there was minimal support for for FAX. Even though Samsung uses Linux internally on some of their products it fails to support Linux users. MAC and Windows have support where Linux has none. Also Tray paper handeling for the 6260 printer is confusing where getting MP Tray empty messages are always coming up.

                      Output is great, very crisp graphics in great color. The only design flaw is that you have to manually change the paper size through the menu on the printer. If you were able to choose the printer properties when printing to change from letter to legal sized paper, I would have given this printer 5 stars overall.

                          Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                          Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                          Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.

                          Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                          How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page

                          Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                          Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                          Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
