The Samsung SL-M4070FR combines the speed of laser printers like the SL-M4020ND model with the added functionality of scanning, copying, and faxing. It also includes networking and automatic duplexing, with a maximum output speed of 42 pages per minute.
The SL-M4070FR suffers from a few awkward design decisions, but they are probably not enough to turn buyers away. Although the footprint of the printing unit is quite compact, the scanning unit is much wider, giving the entire machine a very "top-heavy" look and consuming a lot of extra space. It isn't overly heavy, however, weighing in at just 36.7 pounds, even with the Samsung SL-M4070FR printer toner installed.
Paper handling is pretty standard for a small office machine, with a 250-sheet main tray and a 50-sheet multipurpose tray. The multipurpose tray is particularly convenient for printing on media like envelopes or transparencies without the need to empty the entire main tray. Users can add an extra tray to bump the total capacity up to 820 sheets if needed.
Some of the top-heavy bulk of the device will feel warranted when buyers realize it includes a 50-sheet reversing automatic document feeder. This makes for rapid scanning of two-sided pages (up to 24 images per minute), and documents can be saved to a USB storage device, sent to an email address, or saved to a network folder or FTP server. Best of all, sending digital documents conserves paper and cuts down on the need for replacement toners.
Buyers can choose from standard, high-yield, extra, and ultra high-yield Samsung SL-M4070FR toner cartridges. The smallest is the least expensive, but only provides 3,000 pages. The largest Samsung SL-M4070FR toner cartridge will supply up to 15,000 pages, and offers the lowest cost per page.
Even with its design quirks, the SL-M4070FR is a solid machine with a lot of great features for the busy small office. Its expandability is perfect for a growing office, and the ability to control Samsung SL-M4070FR toner costs will potentially save users a lot of money and help them to keep a tight budget.
