Samsung SCX-3405FW Wireless Monochrome Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax

This is a nice little multifunction unit that is quiet.   It installed easily but slowly.   The software installation took quite awhile but it does need to install software for faxing, printing, scanning and copying.  

On the other hand, the wireless installation went very smoothly.   My E1200n router does not have the easy button that Samsung was looking to find.  However once I opened the router software up, it had a software easy install button and once I pushed it and the button on the printer, Viola!, I had connection.  

The wireless connection was very fast.  I was also impressed with the high quality of the scan and the copy.  I didn’t even test the fax part, it is nice to have if you need it but I have only sent and received two faxes in maybe four or five years. 

I was not impressed with the screen on the unit.  It is hard to read head on and practically impossible to read from any angle.

The software installed without a skip on Win7, Vista and XP.   I test printed from all three OS without a flaw.   This unit sells for $163.28 at Amazon and appears to be a very good value.

Fast, compact Black & White Laser Multifunction Printer with easy Built-in Wireless setup.    Fast 21 ppm speeds and quick first page out time for less time waiting.    10,000 Monthly duty cycle for more reliability from your printer.

The toner is Samsung MLT-D101S/XAA Toner 1.5K Yield (ML-2165W, SCX-3405FW, SF-760P) $61.24 at Amazon and $82 at Staples.  

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
