SAMSUNG Launches Worlds Smallest And Lightest Desktop Color Laser Printer

Las Vegas, NV - Samsung, the world's second largest laser engine manufacturer, announces the breakthrough CLP-300 Series, powerful yet affordable new solutions for consumers who want the benefits of color printing but do not have the space for bulky machinery. The CLP-300 and network ready CLP-300N are smallest and lightest color laser printers in their class, weighing only 30 pounds and featuring a diminutive footprint of 15.4" w x 13.5" d x 10.4" h. Samsung's entire laser printer lineup will be on display during CES 2006 at the Samsung booth, #11033 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 5th - 8th.

Ideally suited for SOHO and home office use, the compact printers also feature tiny toner bottles, instead of larger unwieldy cartridges, allowing for a footprint small enough to fit on most any desk. These stylishly designed two-tone printers deliver beautiful color prints along with the dependability and reliability which Samsung laser printers are known for. The same exclusive NO NOIS™ print engine you'll find in Samsung's high end color laser printers give the affordable CLP-300 series quiet operation and simple toner changes. Getting up and printing is a cinch, with as few as four clicks of the mouse.

"By creating the smallest and lightest color laser printer in its class, Samsung has delivered the ultimate affordable color printing solution for the SOHO and personal office market," says Mark Meisberger, Senior Product Manager, Samsung Electronics Information Technology Division. "Prior to the CLP-300 series, those with small or home offices were more reticent to purchase a color laser printer because until now, their size was significantly bigger than their black and white laser counterparts."

Not only are these printers small and relatively weightless, but they are also fast, printing in up to 17-ppm black and white, and 4-ppm color. Sharp documents result from the 600 x 600 dpi optical resolution which can be enhanced up to 2400 x 600 dpi. The unit also boasts a competitive hearty 24,200 pages per month duty cycle. The high speed USB 2.0 interface makes setup and connectivity simple and the 150-sheet cassette tray enables a hectic workflow to keep flowing. Easy drawer style toner and paper access means its super easy to replace supplies and handle paper jams. For example, if paper jams, the user can simply remove the paper at the front of the printer without the need to rotate the body. Also, the number of supply items is minimized for easy replacement and cost-efficiency.

The CLP-300N, with its built-in 10/100 Base TX Networking, allows for shared printers to be used like standalone printers. The CLP-300 series comes with a high-speed USB 2.0 interface and is compatible with Windows, Macintosh and wide distribution of Linux operating systems.

The CLP-300 printers will be available in February 2006 with a $299 ESP for the
CLP-300 and $399 ESP for the CLP-300N.
