Samsung CLX-4195FW


The Samsung CLX-4195FW ($450 street) delivers most of the basics you're probably looking for in a color laser MFP, from fast speed to a full set of MFP features. That alone is enough to make it a potentially good fit for a micro or small office with...

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

The CLX-4195FW color laser MFP offers fast speed, reasonably good output quality, and suitable paper capacity for light to moderate-duty printing in a micro or small office.

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

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...

Lots of nice features

Uses up your toner evening when in standby and not printing

Consumer review by: Robert (



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...
