Purchasing supplies for my inkjet printer was running up the $$$. Remembering the old days when we had the office Laserwriter, reminded me how many prints you could get on one cartridge.
We stopped by the local Office Max to see what was available. I thought I was in the market for a mono laser printer. The knowledgeable sales person showed us the 315. I asked him to print a couple of pages and was satisfied with the output. I would have purchased it on the spot, however they didn't carry the 315W... and I wanted a wireless printer.
This gave me time to come home and check it out on the net. The reviews ran the gamete from "Great" to "Don't buy". After consuming reviews till I was dizzy, I decided to place my order on Amazon. I had the printer in 3 days...all in good order.
After trying it out for a few days here is what i Have found out.

Negative reviews. I really don't get this... Anyone who has been around laser printers knows that inkjet photos are far superior. I didn't purchase this with great color printing in mind. I'll use my Canon inkjet for that.

Set up for WiFi is very difficult. This I completely agree with. I have a Mac (long time user) and I finally had to give up and call Samsung.

Samsung tech support is worthless. I think they finally got tired of hearing this. I talked with a bright young fellow who nursed me thru the WiFi maze. Come to find out my cable has a dynamic IP and is always changing. He helped me switch it to a static IP. After that it worked perfect. Yes, he even knew all about the Apple Airport router. I would give wireless setup a try, then call before you blood pressure gets too high. It was a good experience.
After I got the printer going, I was able to connect my MacBook immediately.

Verified Purchase
I bought this on 3 Dec through Amazon. Normal great delivery and packaging. Setup was ok - although minimal instructions like other reviewers have said. Used a Cat5 cable to my router, logged in, changed the IP and pw, and no issues.

Had a bit of trouble with the paper cartridge - didn't realize it stuck out (no pictures indicated that) and it's pretty cheap / thin plastic so I didn't want to use too much oomph. But eventually figured it out and I'm comfortable with putting paper in and out (needed for double sided printing).

Just finished printing 120 Christmas letters with color pics embedded - 2 pages, front and back, so about 450 pages total. And the black toner is hollering "low!" so I ordered another (supposedly 1.5k pages) from Amazon - $43. Seems a bit soon to me, but there it is.

Cyan cartridge now needs "shaking" every 10 pages or so or it doesn't fill in where it should - and the "guage" is still showing 30% available.

In summary:
+ No inkjet nozzles to clean
+ More moisture resistant printout
= Decent color - not inkjet quality (when they're good), but good enough
= Noise is less than my other lasers
= Slowish network awareness - 15/20 secs (and it's 10' from the router)
- Low toner volumn imho
- Toner replacements a bit pricey - same as others, though
- Instructions slim to none, although the included pdf manual is not bad

I'd look around, but might buy this one again if I were looking for the same features. Generally satisfied with reservation.

** UPDATE **

Having owned this printer for approximately three years (2011), it has always worked until the other day it simply "died" completely. The red light flashes, no print jobs go through. I contacted Samsung via Twitter for assistance and was referred to a local repair shop. Repair shop suggested it was the "main board...and sensors" that needed repair to the tune of $85-$95. Samsung Customer Service via Twitter was helpful but far from understanding. I was asked for the SN# and if I still had the receipt, I gave them all information except the receipt I no longer had....I was told no exceptions can be made, their decision was final, and there was nothing they could do. They were clearly less-than-enthusiastic about standing behind their product or offering to meet me half-way on a repair.

HP sells a comprable Laserjet for $199 MSRP (less on Amazon), it's not worth paying 1/2 the price of a new one to get the old one repaired. I've owned several printers from both HP and Epson, Inkjet and Laser alike, and never had one just up and fail completely or so quickly. I was using an HP Laserjet at my last job that was approximately six years old and never skipped a beat. This printer was very lightly used, sometimes twice a week at most so I cannot say it was from heavy usage. (My inkjet gets more use, actually).

Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting my new Laserjet soon. There's a neighborhood e-waste recycling fair coming up so this thing is getting dumped in a few days.

** Original Review **

Print quality is pretty good, setup is quite easy, and it's very quiet. It's also a networkable printer (Ethernet and WiFi) so it was a no-brainer on which one to get.
