Introducing your new personal assistant. The new Samsung SCX-4100 is where outstanding design meets multi-functionality. The result is a powerful yet easy-to-use digital copier. And with one of the worlds smallest footprints, the Samsung SCX-4100 offers you versatility and productivity where you need it - right at your desk.
It used to be that you needed a separate machine for each of your needs. Thank goodness that's no longer the case. With multifunction machines like the SCX-4100 from Samsung, you can still get the high-quality results you have come to expect from separate peripherals, while saving both space and money. The SCX-4100 can print, copy, and scan, all in one easy-to-use machine.
The monochrome laser printer has a 600 x 600 dpi resolution, with print times up to 15 ppm. (All reported speeds are maximums. Actual speeds will vary.) The color CIS scanner has a 4,800 x 4,800 dpi maximum enhanced scan resolution (600 dpi optical) and has a 24-bit color depth and a 256-level grayscale. The scanner supports the TWAIN standard and delivers scan times of about 27 seconds (line art). The copy feature allows you to reduce or enlarge your original anywhere from 50% to 200%, while a multi-copy feature lets you print up to 99 copies at a time.
The SCX-4100 has a 250-sheet input capacity and 50-sheet output capacity, and accepts a wide variety of original media, including plain paper, transparencies, envelopes, labels, and stocks (card, thick, thin, bond, preprinted, and colored). Both USB and parallel ports are provided, and a 10,000-page maximum duty cycle is able to handle light-to-medium use environments. The 110 to 240 VAC 50/60 Hz power supply consumes about 300 watts, while noise levels are less than 49 dB during normal operation. Compatible with PC and various Linux operating systems, the SCX-4100 comes backed by a one-year limited warranty.

I was using an old dot-matrix printer from the 80s (Commodore brand), so for me this was a major upgrade. The print quality is not great sinc it produces light and blurry pages, but it's adequate for my usage (postal labels, mapquest directions, copies). If I need to do something professional like a resume, I simply use my printer at work, or else visit a Kinkos.
Anyway I'm satisfied. I paid less than $100 and was able to throw-away the old dot matrix. And in the long term, it will be a LOT cheaper than one of those deskjet models that barely print 100 pages, and then run out of ink. This laser printer can do almost 5000 pages.
Update: 11/04/2011 - This is still the best laser printer I've ever owned and I recommend it to everyone who is looking for a very easy to use all-in-one printer/scanner/copier. You can purchase the toner for it here on Amazon for about $35.00 and the toner lasts well beyond the suggested printed sheets.
The major problem I've had (and it may be a fatal flaw) is that when paper gets jammed in the fuser area it can be very difficult to remove. Expect to burn your fingers, and perhaps need a screw driver or some other implement to pry out the stuck page which has been folded up like an accordian inside the fuser. A simple release mechanism could have avoided this problem, but if there is one I can't find it (and it's not in the documentation).
In two months of relatively light use I've had two instances where I thought I might have to send the machine in for service due to this problem. Each time I managed to clear it with a little persistence.
In addition, the single sheet paper loader on the front does not always grab the paper cleanly. This can lead to off-kilter printing, and is especially a problem with mailing and other types of labels which end up mis-aligned. More than once a whole page of labels has been ruined by this.
The software was easy to install, but the directions in the manual (available in PDF form only) for deleting a print job in the printer memory do not work. There appears to be no way to delete a job (short of turning the printer off) once it is in the printer's memory.
The print quality is mediocre at best. When the toner gradually gets used up, the quality can sometimes also deteriorate. The paper feed is the most negative factor of this printer. Sometimes it feeds two pages at once and crumples up the paper while printing. It is guaranteed to screw up the paper feed when you try to print something on both sides of a page by flipping over the print out and placing it back in the tray. It will sometimes get paper jams with a larger print volume. Samsung has provided Vista drivers for the printer on its website, but I have still run into problems running the printer and trying to share the printer in a network while using Vista.
There is sometimes a persistent hum sound of the printer after warming up, as mentioned by another reviewer, and it can take a long time to go away, or you have to unplug the printer from its power source and plug it back in to stop it. It can be very annoying.
It's a simple multifunction printer, which I like. However it's not perfect. I can live with the print quality, but the paper feed problems really bother me. This printer works just fine unless you have to print many pages or want to print on both sides of the paper.
