Color Laser Xpress 680ND
Brilliant Colors and Razor-Sharp Text and Graphics
Enjoy Quality Printouts
Samsung’s unique ReCP (Rendering Engine for Clean Page) Technology improves the overall quality and vibrancy of your color printing, ensuring every printout looks perfect. It automatically adds dots along the edges of images and characters, meaning everything look much sharper and cleaner. It also eliminates white gaps between solid colors. What this means is you get the best prints, every time.
Our newly refined polymerized toner has smaller and more uniform particles than conventional toner, giving lines extra definition, tones more graduation and color more impact. Its higher wax content improves the image gloss and enhances the durability preventing unwanted fading and page curl. And as the polymer toner can be applied in a thinner layer with lower fusing temperatures it reduces the paper curl and energy consumption as well.
More Power, Higher Productivity
Improve your business’ productivity with the CLP-680ND. With the power of two cores the device can process your work files simultaneously and the 256MB memory ensures even multiple users sending large print jobs get spooled. What this means for you is simple: the CLP-680ND is perfect when there’s a lot to print and a tight deadline to meet.
Speedy and Flexible Paper Handling
