Even just a few years ago, the idea that you could find a color laser printer for such a low price as the Samsung CLP-415NW was unthinkable. Nevertheless, personal users and even small offices get speeds of up to 19 pages per minute for black and color prints, wired and wireless sharing, and a compact design, all for a very low price. The cost of replacing Samsung CLP-415NW printer toner does add up, however.
Sometimes referred to as the CLP-415, the unit has a compact chassis that measures just 10.4x16.5x16.8 inches, so it is a comfortable fit even on a desktop surface. Its quiet operation of less than 50 dB should also make it comfortable for someone working in close proximity as well. Users get a choice of a USB port, Gigabit ethernet port, or support for 802.11b/g/n wireless for connection options.
The input paper capacity is 250 sheets, which should be good for personal use, but may start feeling cramped in a shared environment. No upgrades are available to expand it, either. Its output quality is rated quite well by reviewers, as are the print speeds. The control panel is fairly basic, so most features will be utilized through the software.
The cost of toners is the main drawback, mainly due to having to replace four individual colors of Samsung CLP-415NW toner cartridges. The starter supplies are fairly anemic, but replacement Samsung CLP-415NW toner cartridges provide decent yields of 2,500 pages for black and 1,800 pages for each color.
For those who need color output but don't have a lot of extra in the budget, the CLP-415NW could be an excellent solution. Its high-quality output, decent speeds, and compact design make it a good value for the purchase price. Buyers should plan for the cost of replacing Samsung CLP-415NW toner ahead of time, however.
