The Samsung CLX-4195FW's color touch screen makes it easy to copy, fax, and scan from the printer's front panel.

Fast. Automatic document feeder. Touch-screen controls. Ethernet and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi Direct.

No duplexer. Only 250-sheet input capacity with no optional trays available.

Samsung CLX-4195FW

 

If you need a high-yield, durable wireless laser printer with color printing capabilities, the Samsung CLX-4195FW is the best printer you can buy. If you're looking for a higher print speed and are willing to sacrifice the color printing capabilities,...

The Samsung CLX-4195FW prints in both color and black and white

It sacrifices some print speed to allow for color printing

While it won't print as quickly as a dedicated black-and-white laser printer, the Samsung CLX-4195FW has plenty of features to land it a top spot on our lineup.

Works great!

 

great printer. I wish i had spent the extra money to but the printer that prints of both sides of the page. I knew this didn't when i purchased the printer.

Works nearly flawlessly Have had no really issues ; This has saved me thousands of dollars by printing coupons! in over a year I have only replaced the toner 1 time ; I also use it for school I am so glad that I switched from a inkjet to a laser printer

has issues scanning documents over the wireless network. Some times it works some times it doesn't. I now just use a flash drive to scans to and plug it directly into my computer ; the reason for the 4 eggs instead of 5

Nothing but problems

 

Good print quality, when it actually decides to print

Nothing but problems. From the beginning, I was displeased by the slow speed of printing - every few pages, it stopped, recalibrated, scratched its chin, considered the meaning of the universe, and then started up again when it felt like it. Very, very...

Best printer ever

 

I should have taken one star off for documentation but then you have to get it all on-line from Samsung. It didn't come with any. Setting it up for WiFi connection only works if you do the setup drivers and configuration in the mode "USB" without...

Everything I have tried works 100%. Color photos are excellent, you don't have to mess with color hue's and shades for things to look good ; All my toner levels were at 97 and 98% full. Unit looks new ; Prints, copies and scans to computer 100% good

I can't find any documentation on-line at the Samsung site that explains how and what functions the paper tray has. The top single sheet copy feeder isn't documented any place

[UPDATE] Toner drain when not in use

 

Here's the reply from my case with samsung support. It seems like even without any use the "startup toner are used to generate the running motion of the toner cartridges, spooler and roller. " .However, they contradict themselves later on as saying...

Drains toner even when not being used

 

I purchased this literally in Oct 2012 and the usage counter show a total of 11 mono and 65 color pages for a grand total of 76 pages. The black toner has a warning that it is at 10% and the rest is somewhere between 15% and 20% remaining. My dell...

Dissapointed

 

I purchased this based on prior reviews but so far i'm very disappointed but I hope that my particular printer is defective in some nature and not a common occurrence. While Samsung has great phone support their support website repair requests form...

Great quality color prints when it works especially for the price of the printer. The touchscreen display is a good addition and easy to use. Samsung has great telephone customer service and they will usually have a technician out to fix the printer...

Paper jams and rolls up behind the fuser requiring a service technician to come out to fix since you can't access the roller without unscrewing the fuser and so far on my second service call about this in only 4 months of ownership (this second time...
