Samsung CLP-300N

 

The Samsung CLP-300N's is notable for its small size and light weight, but alas, not for its performance.

Small size. Light weight. Low price. Network connector.

Slow. Subpar output quality. Poor paper handling with surprisingly low paper capacity.

Samsung CLP-300N Laser Printer (17 PPM, 2400x600 DPI, Color, 64M, PC/Mac/Linux)

 

It's hard to imagine a color laser printer having dimesions any smaller than the Samsung CLP-300N's 15.4 by 13.5 by 10.4 inches (width by depth by height). At just $350 (as of March 7, 2007), the CLP-300N is also one of the cheapest color lasers we've...

Very small footprint ; Easy toner replacement

Low print quality ; High toner costs

The CLP-300N won't thrill anyone with its unexceptional print quality, but it's small and inexepensive.

Samsung CLP-300 review

 

The Samsung CLP-300 is the smallest and least expensive color laser printer we've seen. The CLP-300 version (nonnetworked) costs only $250, while the networked version (CLP-300N) will set you back an additional $100. Unfortunately, you sometimes get...

Compact; decently fast black text prints; toner canisters are easy to swap out.

Slow at all but black text prints; print quality could use a lot of improvement.

The tiny Samsung CLP-300 color laser printer is a good bargain for those with very basic print needs. If you need more from your printer, you'll have to spend a little more money.

Samsung CLP-300 Colour Laser Printer

 

The previous colour laser printers that we've seen here from Samsung were all generally very pricey items. The price tag also brought along a size which was noticeably larger than their mono colour counterparts. Both those features were something that...

Small size ; Inexpensive toner replacement bottles ; Great quality prints for the money ; Price ; Ease of use

No USB cable included

For home users looking to get a colour laser printer, the Samsung CLP-300 offers a great solution at an excellent price. It's compact size makes it fit easily on any computer desk in the house, with a footprint not much larger than any other printer on...

If space is at a premium in your office and you aren't too concerned about print quality or page costs, the Samsung CLP-300N makes an easy-to-use, no-nonsense color printer.

Price, easy to use, compact

Consumables costs are high, print quality is not impressive

Samsung CLP-300

 

Samsung's CLP-300 has been designed from the ground up as an affordable colour laser. Is it the best budget buy?

It would be good to say that the CLP-300 offers everything you could want from a budget machine. In fact it ticks most of the boxes, but with one fairly important omission. It's cheap to buy, no more expensive than its competitors to run, gets quite...

Samsung CLP-300N review

 

Samsung offers us a little light relief

Very small and easy to use ; Ethernet port ; Reasonably economical to run

Paper tray smaller than most

It's small but full of a surprising amount of goodness

Samsung CLP-300 Color Laser Printer

 

Well, what do you know! Color laser printers are finally affordable for smaller companies as well. Hell, sure has frozen over! The Samsung CLP-300 claims to be the world's smallest laser printer, which you definitely won't find hard to believe...

The CLP-300 printed 20 black and white pages in one minute sixteen seconds which is three seconds faster than even the Xerox Phaser laser printer. Color pages took longer with 20 pages printing in a little over four minutes. On an average it took close...

Samsung CLP-300N review

 

Samsung says the CLP-300N is the smallest colour laser in its class, and we've certainly never seen a smaller one. It's also lighter and quieter than any other printer in this group, so it's well suited for use in the home.

The CLP-300N is affordable for a network colour laser, quiet and unusually easy to use. Its print quality and speed are underwhelming, however, and high running costs make it a poor choice if you print lots of pages.

Samsung CLP-300

 

Less than stellar print quality and glacial colour printing mar this otherwise admirable stab at shrinking the colour laser printer and making them more user friendly.

Same size as a regular mono laser ; Toner cylinders make toner replacement effortless

Mediocre print quality ; Slow colour printing

Like most colour laser printers, the CLP-300 doesn't excel at reproducing photographs. As expected, dithering is quite obvious, while highlights had much of their detail bleached out. In fairness the CLP-300 isn't meant to produce studio quality...
