With a small bump in print speed, the Savin CLP18 generally inherits its design and feature set from its predecessor, the CLP17, but this isn't a bad thing. The result is a compact color laser printer that is perfect for smaller office spaces and even home users, with a print speed of up to 22 pages per minute in black and 18 pages per minute in color.
Although the CLP18 has a compact frame, buyers shouldn't expect it to be as small as a home inkjet, for example. It measures 16.5x21.1x15.6 inches, and its 68.3 pound weight will make users think twice about moving it if they don't have to. Still, it strikes a good balance of functionality and small design, with a paper capacity that includes a 530-sheet main tray and even a 100-sheet bypass tray for alternate media.
There is a duplex option available, which can help reduce paper costs, and it can be easily installed by the user. Networking is available, and very easy to set up. Monitoring software is built in to the machine, and can even be accessed from a web browser on a networked computer. Energy-saving features like sleep mode and a quick warm-up time can also save users money.
The one drawback of the unit may be the cost of toners. Users who are used to a single cartridge in particular may find replacing the four Savin CLP18 printer toner cartridges quite expensive. This is not to say the Savin CLP18 toner cartridge prices are particularly high individually, but it is a factor to consider.
Small networked offices, and even some individuals, will find the CLP18's combination of quality, speed, and an affordable price very appealing. If buyers don't mind the cost of Savin CLP18 printer toner, it offers impressive color printing in a compact design.
