Samsung CLP 315 review

Low Cost Colour Laser

For those who don’t have a colour Laser printer, and who are not very willing to spend big bucks on one, the Samsung CLP 315 is one of the best solutions. Giving decent all round performance and not hitting very hard on the pocket.

The Samsung CLP 315 standing at 9.6 by 15.3 by 12.3-inches is indeed the world’s smallest colour Laser printer and with its small footprint and nice looks it is good enough to be put up along with a desktop computer, or near your office desk.

With support of up to a maximum of 2400 x 600 dpi print resolutions it can take care of your daily printing needs. No photo printing and editing applications come with this printer.

One good thing is that it ships with cartridges preinstalled into the printer so you’ll have to face least hassles to set it up and get going. The Samsung CLP 315 comes with a starter 1000 page yield toner cartridge.

Speedier operation is also a plus point for the Samsung CLP 315, in our regular test it took 28 seconds to print an A4 page with text and graphics at max quality, while taking 54 seconds to print an A4 Photo print at max settings and if you have a lot of text to print then it will take just 10.5 seconds to print a full A4 text page.

Even though the cost is low and there is no loss in performance but then again we saw some issues with the colour contrast and darkness, most images were good on details but were dark at both best and normal print settings. Borderless printing is not available on this printer.

Finally it is one of the smallest yet fastest colour Laser printers, not at all bad for people who would like to have a colour Laser while being on a budget.
