Samsung will introduce three new laser printers this week, including one described as the company's lost lightweight color laser printer.
The CLP-300 color laser, shipping in February with a suggested retail price $299.99, features four-page per minute (ppm) color and 17 ppm black print speeds. Its basic print resolution is 600 by 600 dpi, but this can be enhanced to 2,400 by 600 dpi. Other features include a 150-sheet paper tray and a 24,200 page per month duty cycle.
The unit's size, 10.4 inches high by 15.1 inches wide by 13.5 inches deep, required Samsung to replace its standard size ink cartridges with small toner bottles, the company said.
Samsung's monochrome printer offering centers on the SCX-4200, a three-in-one-unit featuring a printer, scanner and copier in a small bundle measuring 7.7 inches high by 15.9 inches wide by 14.1 inches deep. The unit has a 30-second warm-up period, a 20 ppm printing, two-sided copying and can use a variety of paper sizes. The SCX-4200 has a toner-saver function that cuts toner usage by 40 percent and the unit comes with Samsung's SmartThru4Software that allows scan to e-mail, scan to print and scan to file.
The SCX-4200 will ship in February with a $199.99 suggested retail price.
The CLP 600 color laser printer series is being offered to small- and medium-sized businesses. The unit has 21 ppm color- and black-print speed with the first document completed in less than 20 seconds. It features a 250-page paper tray, 100-sheet multipurpose tray and an optional 500-sheet cassette. The CLP 600 has a 45,000 page per month duty cycle and it is Ethernet and wireless networking ready.
It will ship in February with a $499.99 suggested retail price.
