The Samsung CLX3185FW is compact, but thats about all. Its slow to print, slow to start up, and does alot of "thinking about" before actually doing anything. There is no tray so that you can print addresses onto letters. To turn it off, you have to hold down the power button for quite a while before then pressing the OK button which finally powers it off. The small screen that give you all the important information you actually need to see, is not illuminated, so if you have the printer at low level, you have to have a light on to see what the messages are ie low toner, or add paper. Complete nightmare if working at night. For all the bells and whistles this printer claims to have, I wouldn't buy another one. The cartridges are expensive. Not easy to configure if you only want to print in black and white, also the time out set up - need the manual for almost any changes you want to make

After a year the printer rollers makes a terrific noise - I'm looking to change now
