The main limitation of the Savin CLP17 might just be its output speed, but buyers shouldn't let that stop them from considering this color laser printer. Despite its speed of 16.9 pages per minute in both color and black and white, it offers extremely high-quality printing with a compact design and an affordable purchase price. Users who do a lot of color printing may find that Savin CLP17 printer toner becomes expensive.
The CLP17 comes with a USB port that is perfect for individual use, or an ethernet port that is ideal for shared network environments of multiple users. It features some of the same network management software of larger models, such as the Web SmartDeviceMonitor that can be accessed from a browser. With this, users can quickly check the printer status, current tasks, and even the level of toners right from their computer.
Speaking of printer toner, buyers will want to consider the costs of color printing. Replacing the four separate Savin CLP17 toner cartridges could be expensive for those who frequently print in color. The access panel for the Savin CLP17 toner cartridges is very conveniently located at the top of the device, requiring little extra space when open and maintaining the unit's compact footprint.
When an office begins to outgrow the CLP17, users can breathe new life into the machine with optional upgrades. Memory can be expanded from the standard 64 MB up to 256 MB for better processing of large documents, and a 10 GB hard drive can be added to add functionality like Locked Print for extra security. Most importantly, the paper capacity can be expanded to a maximum of 1,690 sheets, paving the way for future growth.
With its ability to expand, and its high-quality output, the Savin CLP17 comes highly recommended for a small office. Even home users might want to benefit from its low purchase price, but color printing may get expensive.
