Samsung SCX-3405FW

 

The Samsung SCX-3405FW mono laser MFP is small enough to keep on your desk as a personal printer.

Prints, scans, faxes, and copies. Reasonably high-quality text and graphics. Automatic document feeder. Small size.

No duplexer, even as an option. Low paper capacity.

Samsung SCX-3405fw Review: An Ultra Compact MFP

 

We reviewed the Samsung ML-2165w earlier this month, but now it's time to share our review of its multifunction counterpart, the Samsung SCX-3405fw; a single function monochrome laser offering print, scan, copy and fax functionality in one ultra...

Print quality ; All-in-one toner cartridge ; Ultra-compact

Manual Duplexing ; No front side USB

Samsung SCX-3405FW

 

Samsung's mono laser all-in-one is a multi-talented beast.

Single-button WPS setup ; Easy access for paper jams ; Well-designed control panel

No paper cover ; Footprint increase when printing ; No multi-purpose feed

Software comprises Samsung’s own SyncThru application, which handles most of the common requirements in this type of all-in-one. Sockets at the back offer USB and Ethernet connections, if you don’t want to use wireless.

Samsung SCX-3405W

 

A small, neat, mono laser all-in-one with easy, direct wireless print and useful eco-mode.

Good quality black print, Useful eco-driver options, Convenient control panel

Flimsy paper support, No paper tray cover, Default duplex a nuisance

Mono Laser Multifunction : Samsung SCX-3405W

 

When compared to the other Samsung mono laser printers I have reviewed, the SCX-3405W model is substantially larger. The reason for this increase in size, and weight, as my back can confirm, is down to the fact that this particular offering from...

Box-shaped and available in a choice of white or grey, the SCX3405W has dimensions of 389 x 274 x 249 (W x D x H) and tips the scales at 6.7kg. Adopting the standard arrangement of the flatbed scanner mounted on top of the printer, this unit makes no...
