Samsung widened the niche for low-cost color laser printers on Monday with a trio of three new affordable color printers that offer to inject some color into business presentations, brochures and cover sheets without breaking the bank. The CLX-3175FN, CLP-315 and CLP-315W are all high-output small business printers that crank out full-color laser prints for under $400.
The higher-end CLX-3175FN serves as a true multifunction machine, rolling in copy, scan and fax capabilities with its standard role as a printer. It will load up to 150 pages at a time, and pumps out 17 pages per minute on monochrome print jobs, and 4 per minute at full color. There’s also a document auto-loader that can feed a stack of 15 pages through the scanner portion of the machine automatically.
The stripped down CLP-315 gets the same print specs, but without any of the extras. While the CLP-315 needs a USB 2.0 connection to hook up, the CLP-315W variant has native Ethernet and Wi-Fi capabilities for easily sharing on a network.
The CLX-3175FN will retail for $399.99, while the CLP-315 and CL-315W will go for $199.99 and $249.99, respectively. All the printers are available immediately from Samsung.
