Samsung have announced two new compact laser printers and are claiming one of them is the world’s smallest color laser printer:
“The CLP-315K which is 20% smaller than the previous generation the CLP-300, 45dB, a resolution of 2,400 x 600 dpi, 32MB of internal memory, 16 pages per minutes (Black) and 4 pages per minutes (Color). Finally Samsung also announced that they drastically improved the photo output quality of this new generation.
The CLX-3175FNK, an All in one laser color printer with a build-in scanner (Black & White, Color) and a Fax. Here Samsung succeed to reduce up to 40% the size of this model compare to the previous generation the CLX-3160. On this model you can easily scan document to an USB Key or even print document store on the very same USB key without the need of a PC”
I tried getting more information from the Samsung home page in Korea but they just have pictures of women, apples and butterflies.
Trusted Reviews as reviewed the $150 Lexmark X9575 all-in-one inkjet printer.
Here’s what they thought:
“Assuming the inconsistencies we noticed are isolated to this sample, the X9575 is a fair all-in-one printer. With duplex, wireless and a colour preview monitor, it has most of the current must-haves, but its core printing technology still doesn’t put it up among the leaders. With a street-price of Â£180, there’s better value to be had, too.”
