Samsung CLP-315

 

If you always wanted a color laser but didn't think you could justify the cost, now would be a good time to reconsider. Priced at just $200 (street), the Samsung CLP-315 takes color laser printing to a new level of affordability. (The same printer is...

Color laser printing at a breakthrough price. Small. Reasonably high-quality output overall. Vibrant color graphics

Although its text quality is good enough for most business purposes, it's a touch below par for a laser

The Samsung CLP-315's small size, breakthrough low price, and eye-catching color make it the personal color laser of choice.

As far as control buttons and dials go, the Samsung has a stop button on top and a power switch on the rear. Period. The former serves various functions in addition to canceling a print job, such as printing a network configuration report with an...

Looks good, cheap

Slow

The Samsung CLP-315 is relatively light on dimensions and rather pleasing to look at. For home users who need to run off numbers of text documents mixed in with the odd colour image, this printer's $269 price makes it an enticing buy. Just don't expect...

Samsung CLP-315 review

 

Samsung is out to impress with this dinky laser printer

Compact ; Quiet running ; Low price ; Decent print quality

Sluggish print speeds ; Limited features ; Costly to run

A small and simple printer, but be aware that it's not the cheapest out there to run

Samsung CLP-315

 

The Samsung CLP-315 is a super cheap color laser printer that performs nicely despite being light on features.

Extremely affordable ; Fast printing speed

Limited features set

So, even though the CLP-315 was not that feature-rich, it has an unbelievably low price, excellent performance, and low running cost. If you are looking for a super cheap color laser printer that performs nicely despite being light on features, then...

With a home audience in mind, Samsung has given the Samsung CLP-315 printer a striking polished black exterior, and delicate curves that make this far and away the best-looking laser printer we've seen.

Samsung - CLP-315

 

Colour laser printers have been getting smaller and cheaper for a while, but Samsung's CLP-315 breaks both records, with The Smallest Laser Printer In The World costing just £125 at Internet prices. This matte and gloss ...

Aimed at the SOHO market, or possibly at a manager's desk, this is truly a small colour laser printer. It's also inexpensive to buy and quiet when printing. Against this, it's comparatively expensive to run and the print quality is variable. If money's...

Samsung CLP-315

 

Samsung bills this machine as 'the smallest colour laser printer in the world' and there can be little argument with that. Not much bigger than a mid-range, personal, mono laser, it really does have a very small footprint - just 388 x 313mm. Although...

This printer is good in parts. It's small, easy to maintain, quiet when printing and costs very little for colour laser technology. Against this, it's slow, expensive to run and the print quality is better elsewhere. It's a good buy for general home...
