For the personal user who needs high-quality color laser printing comes the Samsung CLP-362. This affordable and compact device can reach speeds of up to 18 pages per minute in monochrome, though its color output is limited to 4 pages per minute. Samsung CLP-362 printer toner is also pricey to replace, especially for smaller budgets, but the cost per page is affordable.
The size of the CLP-362 is quite compact, and its design is very simple and easy-to-use. The unit measures 12.2x8.3x15 inches, and it weighs 21.7 pounds. This should be a good fit for the average desktop, without taking up too much space. It includes a 300 MHz processor and 32 MB of memory, and connects via USB 2.0, with no option for networking included.
While its maximum speeds are impressive, higher quality settings will reduce the speed, and its first page out time of 14 seconds for monochrome and 26 seconds for color means a fair amount of waiting time. The input paper tray can hold up to 150 sheets, but the output tray is limited to 50 sheets, so it will require user intervention during long print jobs. With its 2400x600 dpi resolution, it can produce sharp images, and the polymerized Samsung CLP-362 toner can uses smaller particles for more even results and less page curling.
The starter toners provided with the machine have capacities of 500 pages for color and 700 pages for black, but the standard Samsung CLP-362 toner cartridges can provide up to 1,000 pages each. By pressing the Eco button on the control panel, the printer reduces the toner amount used per page, and can extend the life of Samsung CLP-362 toner cartridges, reducing costs.
Buyers who can handle the upfront cost of supplies will benefit from a low cost per page, along with excellent image quality. The combination of a compact design, decent output speeds, and excellent quality make the Samsung CLP-362 a great value for personal use.
