Samsung SCX-4600 review

 

The introduction of fast, inexpensive and economical colour inkjets like HP's Officejet 6000 has stolen some of the small business market that was traditionally dominated by compact laser printers. However, if colour isn't a necessity and you'd rather...

An inexpensive and easy-to-use mono laser MFP that's ideal for a home office with modest printing requirements.

Samsung SCX-4600 review

 

Samsung follows its affordable ML-915 mono laser printer with the Samsung SCX-4600 multifunction printer and scanner

If anything, the Samsung SCX-4600 works even better as a printer than the ML-1915. It's marginally faster, and the quality of prints seems slightly improved. But the price remains modest, and given that you get a very flexible scanning component as...

Samsung SCX-4600 - Laser MFP

 

This multifunction laser printer from Samsung is improbably cheap.

This is a well-designed, nicely integrated multifunction printer, which is well capable of handling reasonable workloads in a SOHO environment. It's fast, easy to maintain and won't cost you the earth to run. While it's very much a one-per-desk...

Samsung SCX-4600 review

 

A budget-priced multi-function printer that adds bells and whistles to the earlier ML-1915.

Print screen function; scanning

Black and white; holds just 80 sheets of paper

If anything, the SCX-4600 is an even better printer than the ML-1915. It’s marginally faster, and the quality of prints seems slightly improved. With a modest price and a very flexible scanning component, this counts as another outstanding purchase...

Print, scan and copy in style Samsung’s SCX-4600 is a combined printer-scanner that, unlike most of its rivals, uses a laser printer rather than an inkjet model. Laser printers are better for ...

Samsung - SCX-4600

 

At the tail-end of 2009 we took a look at Samsung's ML-1915 mono laser printer, and thanks to its decent print quality and sheer value for money it scooped a Recommended award. Now Samsung has released ...

Samsung's been doing a sterling job in churning out quality lasers at affordable prices, and the SCX-4600 is no different. Sure, it lacks bells and whistles such as an ADF (auto document feeder), duplex printing and network connectivity, but it...

Samsung SCX-4600

 

A laserbased allinone for around 100 looks like a particularly good deal, but what can you get for that kind of money? Well, in the case of Samsung's SCX4600, you get a surprisingly wellequipped multifunction machine that covers print, scan and copy bases

The Samsung SCX4600 really does offer excellent value for money for a Soho device
