The Samsung SL-C410W is one of the first color laser printers on the market to support NFC (near-field communication) and although it's a new technology, it is very useful, and even a little bit fun. Print speeds are a little slow, at a maximum of 18 pages per minute for black and 4 pages per minute for color, and price for replacement toners can be a little high.
The NFC feature of the SL-C410W works by getting a compatible smartphone in the vicinity of the machine. When users are ready to print, they simply tap the phone against a designated area on the front left of the device. This is a very convenient method, though only a small number of mobile devices currently support NFC.
The SL-C410W has a few other tricks up its sleeve when it comes to mobile and wireless printing. It supports the WPS protocol for quick and easy wireless setup for compatible routers, and it has Google Cloud Print support for printing from virtually anywhere.
Despite the four Samsung SL-C410W printer toner cartridges contained within, the unit is still quite compact. It measures 8.3x12.2x15 inches, and it weighs just 21.7 pounds. The output is rendered at 2400x600 effective dpi for sharp results, and the input paper tray can hold 150 sheets.
The starter Samsung SL-C410W toner supplies included with the machine have limited yields of only 500 pages for color and 700 pages for black. Replacement Samsung SL-C410W toner cartridges offer up to 1,000 pages for color and 1,500 pages for black, however. This makes them more cost-effective, but they are still a bit pricey.
Many buyers may see the NFC feature as a gimmick, but even so, the SL-C410W is a great machine at a very low price. Home users looking to print in color will appreciate its easy wireless setup, but watch out for high prices on Samsung SL-C410W toner.
