Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

One less noisy office distraction

One less noisy office distraction
You shouldn’t have to struggle to hear yourself think while sitting at your own desk. That’s why the Samsung SCX-3205W is engineered to be whisper quiet, generating a noise level of just 49dBA while it’s printing. That’s less than the gentle hum of a running refrigerator! A desktop printer that does its work while letting you focus on yours? Cool.

Capture what catches your eye

Capture what catches your eye
Samsung’s AnyWeb Print software lets you go hunting and gathering on the Web. You can utilise the SCX-3205W to easily select, drag, and drop content from different web pages onto a printable scrap board in your browser window, all while you surf the web. Items can be printed quickly or saved in different file formats. It’s an easy way to collect, arrange, and edit useful reference points and resources you can only find on the web for big projects – or even just for fun.
Setup is easy with our secure, one-touch wireless connection.

Setup is easy with our secure, one-touch wireless connection.

The SCX-3205W's One Touch Wi-Fi Setting lets you connect quickly and easily. Simply select the WPS (WiFi Protected Set-up) button on the printer, press WPS button on the wireless access point (router) and you’re done. Normally, you would have to spend time creating a wireless network name and manually entering a security key or password on all the wireless devices. But the ultra-convenient One Touch Wi-Fi Setting automatically configures — and protects — your wireless network for you.

Lessen your wait, not your expectations

Lessen your wait, not your expectations
Quit losing productivity waiting around for your documents to print ? the Samsung SCX-3205W’s fast print speed (16ppm for A4 paper, 17ppm for letter-sized) will have you back to work in no time. In Ready Mode, the SCX-3205W features a First Page Output Time (FPOT) of just 8.5 seconds and an impressive 1200 x 1200dpi print resolution, satisfying both your need for speed and your demand for quality.
No strings attached

No strings attached

Turn your computer loose with wireless printing. There are no more cables tripping you up or plugging and unplugging machines to identify the right printer. And better yet, a wireless printer can be shared by many computers, saving you money on hardware and energy costs. Break free from the restraints of cables and say goodbye with the SCX-3205W laser printer.
Save time and earth with convenient one-touch eco print

Big features, small size

Big features, small size
