This question would make more sense if you specified a price range, if you needed duplexing, etc.

Having said all that...

John,
Don't know anything about Samsung as I only have an Old HP(workhorse) and Canon(All In One) and both are inkjets. Sorry!

The OS shouldn't be much of a factor, as any laser printer you buy new will handle all three. Just go to your local Staples, Best Buy, etc and check out their models, features, and pricing. Ask to print some test pages to check out the quality, then compare the costs of replacement toner.

Good advice by DeaconFrost!

You also want to inquire on their return policy and extended warranties if they have them
I know Best Buy has a 15% return to stock policy.
Check Sam's Club or Costco (This is a must) great no questions asked to return for up to 30-90days!!!

Hi John
Be helpful if we knew what your main use is for a printer. Are you looking to print high quality photos, CD/DVD direct discs, high volumn b/w documents or what?
