The highlighted feature of the Samsung SL-C460FW multifunction color laser printer is its near-field communications (NFC) printing, but it has a lot more mobile integration than just that. Its wireless support includes scanning and faxing, and its print speeds of 19 pages per minute for black and 4 pages per minute for color are not too shabby for the price.
Fitting so much functionality into a color model like the SL-C460FW is somewhat of a feat of engineering. It can print, scan, copy, and fax, with a 40-sheet automatic document feeder and a 150-sheet paper tray. Despite all of that, it still measures just 13.1x16x14.3 inches, with a weight of a little over 30 pounds, even with the Samsung SL-C460FW printer toner supplies included.
Setting up the device on a wireless network is easy, especially when WPS is supported for quick setup with the press of a few buttons. Mobile devices that support NFC can be tapped against the printer to start an open photo or document printing automatically. Users with compatible mobile devices can also receive scans and faxes directly to their devices.
If you don't have a compatible mobile device, you won't be left out in the cold. A USB port on the front of the machine can be used to for printing or storing documents, and any computer on the network can easily connect via wired or wireless connection. With Samsung's Easy Eco Driver feature, users can eliminate unnecessary images and text from web pages and documents before printing, and conserve the use of Samsung SL-C460FW toner.
Although the model is fairly inexpensive, replacing all four toners can start to add up. The starter Samsung SL-C460FW toner cartridges included with the machine have smaller capacities, and will expire more quickly. The full-size Samsung SL-C460FW toner cartridge replacements, however, are estimated for 1,000 pages for color and 1,500 pages for black.
Whether buyers are drawn to its NFC features or simply its low price, the Samsung SL-C460FW is a solid value for home and small office users. The mobile printing integration is a plus, and conveniences like the Easy Eco Driver could end up saving users a lot of money on supplies.
