Samsung SCX-4200 Laser Multifunction


Today we're looking at the SCX-4200 flatbed laser multifunction unit from Samsung. In the past we've reviewed many multifunction units and laser printers from them, but hardly any have had a low price tag like the SCX-4200 offeres yet had so many...

Inexpensive ; Excellent performance for the money ; Scans, prints and copies ; Great exterior design

Should include a USB cable, they almost cost nothing these days to throw in

Overall, for having a small price tag and small footprint alike, the Samsung SCX-4200 makes a great multifunction copier, printer and scanner for those on a budget. It's performance definitely does not leave you believing you paid as little for it as...

Samsung SCX-4200


With great print quality and decent speeds, the Samsung SCX-4200 is a no-brainer for a home office or very small office on a budget.

Very inexpensive ; Good print speed ; Great print quality ; Compact form factor

No fax functionality ; Ethernet networking costs extra ; Can't expand paper handling

Samsung backs the SCX-4200 with an industry-average one-year warranty. Samsung's Web site has helpful FAQs that deal with general questions, such as how to network a printer and what types of paper you can use with a laser printer. The site also offers...

Samsung - SCX-4200


Samsung's SCX-4200 is an unusual beast; a multifunction device based around a mono laser engine, rather than a colour inkjet. It's intended for home office or small office use, where colour output isn't as important as ...

The SCX-4200 is a handy little device for all kinds of office work, though two shortcomings prevent it being given a full recommendation. The warm-up time, particularly for the laser engine, is a hindrance if you print intermittently and the copy...

Samsung SCX4200 Multi Function laser Printer


Today we take a look at one of the smallest laser-based flatbed multi function printers from Samsung; the SCX 4200. The SCX 4200 is designed to be an affordable and compact printer for small and home office use. The unit features a toner save function...

Toner Save feature, Compact size, 3 in 1, Colour Scanning, Cost

No USB cable included, Black and white printing and copying only

The SCX 4200 is a great cost effective printing solution for the home or a small office. The 3 in 1 functionality along with its compact size makes this printer truly stand out

Great MFP


Adding a USB printing cable hurts the bottom line so much? really?

Good printing quality, long lasting starter cartridge (reportedly for 1000 pages, still going strong on page 1300). Linux drivers! Excellent performance for light or medium use (printing research papers and the like). Fairly decent photocopying... a...

Printer heats up quite a bit on heavy printing, Linux driver lacks all the functionality of the Windoze (when will companies stop treating Linux as a second rate OS) and if you use low quality paper you'll get a lot of paper jams

Pretty Darn Good


I know that the paper must take a sharp turn in there somewhere, and I guess there is no other way in unit that is this small. It hasn't jammed on me once, and i've probably printed 150-200 pages. Overall, very satisfied. ANd to top if off, I got free...

Cheap little printer, esp. when you catch it on sale. Pretty good print speeds, very nice scanner. Makes copies pretty well

Still don't understand why any printer manufacturers don't send the USB A to B cable with their printers, because you know, that might make sense... but that aside, I have encountered absolutely no problems with this MFP

Get what you pay for


If you need something reliable, don't get this printer.

Cheap. Small

Garbage. This unit broke after about 2 weeks of use. And before it officially broke, it would constantly jam paper. If you're printing one sheet at a time, great. Printing multiple prepared for constant jamming. Finally, one time it jammed,...
