Good value

By 

from Albuquerque, NM

Comments about Printronix CLX- Laser Printer:

This multifunction color laser printer does everything adequately but there's no "wow" factor.  It can print, scan, copy and fax in black and white or color.  It has an automatic document feeder.  The consumables are reasonably priced.  Samsung's software holds it back, especially when scanning: bitmap files it creates are much bigger than they should be.  The Windows scanning application is awkward but performs much better.  Scanning in higher resolution modes is slow.  Like most lasers, photos are difficult for it.  Colors tend to be flat and inaccurate, even when printed on photo paper (you must use laser photo paper rather than inkjet types, and the choices are much more limited).  Because Samsung uses a different approach, the unit does not need to cycle and is silent when it is not being used, unlike printers from HP and other vendors.  Overall, it's a reasonable choice for a home office, especially one with limited space or where noise will carry to other areas.  Price and performance make it a good value but not a great one.

Great Color Laser Multi-Function Printer!

By 

from Apopka, FL

Comments about Printronix CLX- Laser Printer:

The Samsung Color Laser CLX-3160FN Multi-Function Laser Printer is one of the best Color Laser MFC (Printer, Copier, Scanner and Fax) on the market today for the price.  It's network ready, quiet, easy to operate, print quality is great and it has a direct USB Connectivity for plugging in your digitial camera to print pictures.  I am very pleased with my purchase.

Not worth the money

By 

from Federal Way, WA

Comments about Printronix CLX- Laser Printer:

This machine was not worth the money - after changing the toner ONCE black would never print evenly. Even after several pages worth of printing, and after several toners later - my printer still isn't the same as when it first came out of the box... maybe it's allergic to working.

I have seen many of the same printers being used at higher end print shops and have often wondered why theirs still works fine despite the continued use. And I really cannot complain about how colour prints on it because it does print quite well in very vibrant and precise colours. My only issue and complaint with the printer is the short life span of the imaging  drum that supposedly is causing my printer to not print evenly. When you see a page, you would think that one side is done in bold and the other side in a draft print mode! It is that big of a difference - and I really hate being told at work that my printer toner needs to be changed!

Outstanding Value in A Laser Printer

By 

from Amarillo, TX

Comments about Printronix CLX- Laser Printer:

Superb quality prints at an affordable price.  If you're looking for the best and are willing to outlay a little more upfront this is the printer for you.  No more running to the office supply looking for ink cartridges in the middle of the night.  This baby will print thousands before you need to replace toner.  Crystal clear imaging and waterproof documentation is important when you're using your printer for business and this printer portrays a professional image.  :)
