Samsung Xpress M2835DW Mono Laser Printer – fast and easy to set up

This is a great printer for most uses. This is a great printer for most uses, but unfortunately for printing duplex it’s massively hit and miss. Printing single sheets is perfect, but when it winds the paper back in to print the second side it almost always comes out askew, like it’s fallen down a staircase when reading from left to right. I’ve had a replacement that does exactly the same. Samsung support told me to try 80-90gsm paper, which also yields the same results (plus 80gsm is not great for duplex printing as you can see through both sides at the same time). If you want a single sheet printer though this is lightning fast and i’ve had relatively few network issues. If you want a duplex printer look elsewhere.

Perfect for a small business. I read a lot of independent reviews before deciding on this printer, based on quality and running costs. I run a small marketing business from home and the inkjet printer is getting just too expensive to run. I could not be happier with this samsung laser printer, even when we give it some heavy workloads, it copes admirably. The cartridges also last a long time. Put it in ‘eco’ mode and it doesn’t dent your electricity bill when it’s on stand-by.

Very difficult to set up took and experienced ‘computer man’ 45+mins.

  • sheets each time so the Duplex facility works to great advantage. The print is crisp and clear and
  • Not the easiest wireless installation- but good now.
  • but the printer is fine. Took a little time to realize that A4

Took a little time to realize that a4. Haven’t yet worked out how to work the wifi connection, but the printer is fine. Took a little time to realize that a4 paper has to stick out the back of the tray, this was not clear from the instructions. The double-sided printing facility is fun.

Ditch your deskjet and choose laser. This is my first ever laser printer. For the past 20 years i have bought mainly hp deskjet devices but of late i have become frustrated with ink issues, connectivity issues, paper jams. My last had loads of functions on a touch sensitive screen which i never used yet ate ink faster than my kids can devour a can of lemonade. All of the above is why i had had enough of deskjet sand was repaired to try something different. Enter a mono laser printer – no costly colour ink, which dries up because it is too costly to use. This printer does duplex printer really really quickly and quietly. Setup was easy, though beware when unpacking. I was covered in a black dust when i put the toner cartridge in. Duplex printing is brilliant and a feature i never thought i would get for a home office.

For mono, duplex, laser printing this should be in your shortlist. Nice printer for general, light office work. Duplex printing was a must-have for me and i only need mono/black. Just fed up with wasting money on ink so when my old inkjet died i searched for a good value laser printer. Produces high quality prints quickly. Downside: when you change the toner you do get the inevitable stink of it in the air that hangs around for a day. The paper tray sticks out the back by about an inch and is uncovered so allows dust in. I tapped a paper sheet over the back to try to keep the dust out. It’s a bit bigger than it looks.

Very easy to set up, works seamlessly on wireless. Printing interface is very flexible, like the double-sided option.

    It’s been sat there doing the job for some months now – great. Plus a few more words to finish the review.

      1. The samsung xpress m2835dw is a mono laser printer with wi-fi connectivity, and comes with automatic double-sided printing and fast, high quality text prints at your disposal, this mono laser printer from samsung is a great choice for your home office. It’s a relatively compact mono laser printer – it only prints in black and can’t scan or copy. If you’re looking for a fast text printer you need look no further than this one – text pages come through at a blistering rate and look great. Some inkjet printers clean their print heads if you only print occasionally, using ink that will never reach the paper. Laser printers such as this one don’t waste toner this way because there are no print heads to clean. Overall, the samsung xpress m2835dw works out cheaper than average in terms of printing costsprinted text looks impressively sharp on this samsung, and pages come through at a stunningly fast rate of 17. If you’re printing office graphics documents, such as charts and spreadsheets, they can look slightly dark, but they’re still relatively good for mono prints. More complex mono graphics prints, such as pages containing text with images, are on the softer side, but still reasonable and again, they’re quick.

    Not the easiest wireless installation- but good now. . Samsung xpress m2835dw mono laser printer – whiteonly had it a few days, but so far very happy with it, although the wireless setup was a bit of a faff. I wanted to use the printer in the fully wireless mode; i chose the option to do the initial wireless setup using a usb connection. Using the supplied cd-rom did not go well; i got to the point where the installation software was looking for the printer, but it could not see it, even though it was showing on the ‘devices and printers’ page on my windows 10 computer. Eventually, i downloaded the samsung ‘easy wireless setup’ application, which worked a treat; the printer was up and running. The next day, came the problem of the printer showing offline, and needing to be switched off and then on again to bring it back online (a problem we had with our old canon wireless printer); after searching online, i found a samsung help page which showed how to apply a fixed ip address; this solved the problem. Although the setup did not go particularly smoothly, the printer is now installed and working fine. I’m very happy with the build quality and the output is what you would expect from a good quality laser printer. I’d happily recommend this printer.

    Functional, so far so good. . Google cloud print, duplex, wireless. No ink cartridges to dry out. When it’s printing it’s a bit louder than i was hoping for [it’s located in a living space] but not too loud. Let’s see how it continues to perform over time.

    1. Does everything as described and doesn’t take too much space on the shelf.

      1. Great little fast printer for everyday ( b & w ) printing. Fairly easy to set up and operate (from p. Double side printing has proved a boon for me – compared to old printer.

    1. This is a brilliant printer and i would give it 5 stars except for the user interfaces. I have just spent about half an hour trying to print one page because i could not understand the status lights. I am colour blind and the status is indicated by a single led that changes colour. All the instructions are written for multiple models of the printer. Which means that the user has to navigate a path that relates to the correct machine. This relates to the initial set-up instructions and the on-line manual. The setup instructions are small pictures that i found difficult to understand.
