Samsung CLP-300 Review: Cheap Color Laser Printer

Samsung CLP-300
Dinky and cheap is the correct two sentences to represent Samsung innovation in printer segment. They made a success in monochrome laser printer with ML-2010, and now they did it again in colour laser printer with CLP-300. With only US$ 328, this color laser printer present with compact design and light enough (13,6 kgs) so that can be applied in small office and also home.

A compact CLP-300 physical of course draws attention because different from other colour laser printer which generally have big body. No wonder if this design gets the award from Reddot Design Award 2006. The panel is also very simple and only presents LED lamp as activity process indicator because further arrangement is done directly from PC. One other pleasing feature is the existence of pop-up windows which is informative, especially if happened errors, makes usage of printer become felt easy.

Because it small size, this printer only provides one tray with 150 sheets capacities without expansion. While for connect it to computer, is provided USB 2.0 connection. If you plan to apply it in office network, it’s available CLP-300 in N series (CLP-300N) which provides network connection through Ethernet.

If till now we recognize long laser printer toner hence you will surprise with toner from CLP-300. The toner form, which is look like a mug seen non ordinary but hardly easy to be installed in printer. This toner claimed can print 2000 pages for black color and 1000 pages at color toner of cyan, magenta and yellow.

Equipped by CHORUSm 300MHz processor and 32MB memory, CLP-300 performance is including quickly. For 1 A4 text page only require time 10 seconds only. But when printing the next page, the speed declines harshly, until 1 minute 37 seconds to print 5 page contains text and picture. While for the quality, we see satisfying result for text, but not so good is picture result. The problem is the existence of invisible ink dots, so that the print result seen less solid.

Look from its ability, Samsung CLP-300 is interesting enough for them which need an economic colour laser printer. Its color quality of course not special, but this printer is excellent in price, simplicity, size, and economical power usage. The result, this product is competent for small office and home user.

This printer produces nice images but every 200 or so pages it starts jamming because the rubber boot doesn't kick the paper out of the tray. Cleaning the boot with a wet cloth reactivates the boot. Avoid this printer.

The toners are fairly reasonable in comparison to HP
