The Samsung SCX-4216 is a monochrome laser printer with multifunction features designed for the home or small office user. It aims to offer all the functionality a small office could need in a single device, and mostly manages to deliver on this promise.
The multifunction features of the SCX-4216 include printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. The printer is monochrome, so copying and printing does not include color, though color scanning is available, at resolutions up to 2400 dpi. Included with the printer is a suite of software that includes OCR (optical character recognition) software, which allows scanned documents to be converted to searchable, editable text, perfect for archiving.
The design of the SCX-4216 is very compact, especially given its numerous features. Samsung manages to fit a lot of functionality into a very compact package. The unit only weighs around 28 pounds with the Samsung toner cartridge. Print speed is quite good, at 17 pages per minute, and print quality is very impressive. Most multifunction devices suffer a bit in print quality compared to dedicated laser printers, but this is not particularly the case with the SCX-4216. Prints are very clear and sharp.
The unit features an automatic document feeder with a capacity of 30 sheets, allowing it to scan or copy up to 30 documents at a time without the need for user intervention. Paper capacities are fairly generous for its class, with 250 sheets for the input tray and 150 sheets for the output tray.
The front panel of the unit allows for easy access to all the necessary features and functions. Included on the front panel is a Toner Save button, which puts the printer into a mode which uses less toner per page, allowing for as much as a 40% savings in toner costs. This can add up to a significant amount of money over the lifetime of the printer.
Overall, the Samsung SCX-4216 offers nearly every feature a small office needs in a compact, affordable package. Print speed and quality is impressive, and the TonerSave feature means that cost of ownership should be much lower than the competition.
