Samsung has recently thrown its hat into the competitive laser printing market, and its CLX-3175 multifunction laser printer might be its first runaway hit. This affordable laser printer is the perfect choice for small businesses or home office workers.
Unlike many other laser printers in designed to be affordable and targeted to home or small business users, the Samsung CLX-3175 doesn't compromise on key parts of its functionality like printing speed and number of functions. Indeed, this compact printer from Samsung can churn out a pretty impressive 16 pages per minute when printing black and white text; for colour prints, it clocks in at a solid four pages per minute, which is higher than a lot of similar models.
Printing isn't a noisy experience with the Samsung CLX-3175. It barely makes a hum as it prints each page, which is a refreshing change of pace from older laser printer models that buzzed, hummed, and made clicking noises each time a page was produced. It is also quite compact, taking up relatively little desk room in comparison to its many functions.
And those many functions are perfect for the home office or small business user. The Samsung CLX-3175 not only has a high-powered laser printer, but includes a high resolution scanner as well. The scanner can produce high quality images of up to 4,00 x 4,800 dpi; this is great for turning small scans into high-quality documents on your computer. The scanner can also function as a copier, working in conjunction with the laser printer to produce copies without even interacting with a computer screen. Samsung have designed this printer so that when you have to replace the Samsung CLX 3175 toner, it is as easy as possible.
For users who prefer (or require) network functions, the Samsung CLX-3175 laser printer works with both traditional wired networks as well as 802.11 b/g/n wireless routers. One exception is that the networking features did not work with the Apple Airport Extreme or Express base stations, so users of Macintosh computers may want to reconsider this model if wireless network is a must-have feature.
Overall, the Samsung CLX-3175 multi-function printer is an excellent choice for the home office or small business user. Its small footprint and combined functions will save valuable desk space, and its quick printing will help increase productivity. With the added convenience of wired or wireless networking, it's a great solution for those who have multiple computers and need to print from anywhere in the home or office.
