The Samsung SF-5100 is a laser fax machine with copying functions designed for the home or small office environment. Its light weight and compact frame make it perfect for tight spaces, and inexpensive Samsung SF-5100 toner makes it a good fit for tight budgets. This unit is monochrome, so consumers looking for a color printer may want to check out the Samsung CLP-315 toner printer.
The Samsung SF-5100 is also referred to as the SF-5100P or SF-5100PI. It has a good blend of faxing features. Its transmission speed is a bit slow, at only 14.4 kbps, but for the average user, this will likely be fast enough for light-duty use. Faxes and copies print at around 6 pages per minute. The 20-sheet automatic document feeder accepts pages for both faxing and copying, but copying is somewhat limited without a flatbed scanning surface, so scanning larger media like books is out of the question. Copies can be reduced and enlarged from 30% to 150%, and up to 99 copies can be made at once.
Toners for the unit are easy to find, and the Samsung SF-5100 toner cartridges are very affordable. Combine that with the large capacity of Samsung SF-5100 toner cartridges, at 3,000 pages, and it is a very economical faxing solution. Using third-party laser printer toner will keep costs even lower.
When compared to other competing models, such as the HP 1320 toner printer, the Samsung SF-5100 impresses with its low upfront price. Although it doesn't offer the transmission speed or printing speed of some other models, it makes up for it with the low price of Samsung SF-5100 toner, which will make it a less expensive unit in the long run.
Overall, the Samsung SF-5100 is a compact and affordable machine that will suit the needs of home and small office buyers quite well. Low cost toners and good functionality give it a great value.
