As a compact multifunction color laser printer, the Samsung CLX-4195FW offers decent output quality and a good blend of office features at a relatively affordable price. It also happens to be pretty fast, with speeds of up to 19 pages per minute, though the price of replacing Samsung CLX-4195FW printer toner could be a bit much for an individual or very small office to handle.
The CLX-4195 isn't as compact as some of its competition, but you get some nice extras for the bit of extra bulk, such as a roomy automatic document feeder that can hold up to 50 sheets and a 4.3 inch color touchscreen display. The machine measures 17.6x16.5x16.8 inches and weighs 47.3 pounds with the Samsung CLX-4195FW toner installed.
The paper handling is a bit limited, as it can hold only 250 sheets, and there are no options for upgrading. There is a single-sheet bypass slot for alternate media types, however.
The device can handle a variety of tasks, including printing, scanning, faxing, and copying. Scan speeds are up to 20 images per minute, and digital documents can be sent to a PC, a USB storage device, a network location, or even an email address. Duplexing is not supported, so buyers who frequently deal with two-sided documents may wish to look elsewhere.
The price of Samsung CLX-4195FW toner cartridges is fairly reasonable, but having to replace 4 toners can start to add up, especially for buyers not used to a color machine. Each color Samsung CLX-4195FW toner cartridge can provide up to 1,800 pages, while the black supply has a yield of up to 2,500 pages.
The Samsung CLX-4195FW offers a nice compromise between a large business machine and a compact home model, and its output quality and speed are both impressive. Potential buyers need to be aware of the lack of expandability, however.
