The Samsung SF-531P (also referred to as the SF-531) is a laser fax machine, copier and printer designed for the home or small office environment. It offers reasonable printing speeds at up to 8 pages per minute, and its 600 dpi printing resolution gives sharp print quality. Samsung SF-531P toner costs are also low, for economical printing and faxing.
While the Samsung SF-531P has the potential to replace three machines, its main function is certainly faxing. In fact, its printing features are fairly basic, and its copy function is limited by the lack of a flatbed scanner. It can only copy or fax pages that can be fed through its sheet-fed scanner. All of the necessary faxing features are included, such as 33.6 kbps transmission speed, a built-in handset, 20 1-touch dialing buttons and 80 speed dial numbers and even a battery backup, which can last up to 30 minutes in case of a power failure.
Printer toner is a major cost for any machine, so the low price of Samsung SF-531P toner cartridges is a major selling point. Samsung SF-531P toner cartridges also have a capacity of 3,000 pages, which results in a very low cost per page. Using third-party compatible toners can reduce costs even more, making it one of the most economical machines in its class.
In their review of the Samsung SF-531P, PCStats.com found its print quality to be good but speeds to be slow. They liked its fax function, but found its copying and printing capabilities to be limited. They also liked the low cost of Samsung SF-531P toner. For higher quality printing and copying, try something like the Samsung SCX-4725 that features Samsung SCX-D4725A toner.
Overall, the Samsung SF-531P is an affordable machine that offers a lot of functionality in a small package. Its faxing is the highlight, but its other features are good enough for occasional use.
