Looking For A Great Laser Printer Or MFP Solution? Think Low "Total Cost Of Ownership" Say THE Experts At SAMSUNGon May 10, 2005
New Laser Printers Give Big Results to Small and Medium Sized Businesses
Irvine, CA ? With so many choices, it's tough to decide which printers to purchase for small and medium sized business. In addition to desired features and size of the unit, the most crucial criteria you need to consider is Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) ? the real cost of owning and operating the printer over its lifetime. TCO includes the cost of the unit, its consumables, and maintenance required. If you’re looking for the lowest TCO, combined with industry leading features, then one of a new breed of laser printers might be the right way to go.
Samsung, the world's second largest laser engine manufacturer, recommends three models in its award-winning laser printer and multifunction product lineup, which offer extremely low TCO and are complete solutions out of the box for today's enterprise: The ML-2251N monochrome laser printer, CLP-510N color laser printer, and SCX-4720F multi-function printer. All three are network ready, offer a wireless option, and are fast enough to meet the demands of even the busiest office.
Fast, crisp monochrome printing: ML-2251N Monochrome Laser Printer: If your primary need is for fast, crisp monochrome printing, the ML-2251N (MSRP $299.99) is a great option. Not only is this printer speedy at 22 pages-per-minute, but it offers a robust 30,000-page monthly duty cycle and 250-sheet paper cassette with 50-sheet multipurpose feeder capable of handling paper types and sizes from 3" x 5" index cards to legal documents. It features up to 1,200 dpi resolution for printing razor-sharp text and graphics. It’s actually made to save you money with a TCO-friendly Toner Save Button that increases toner capacity up to 40%. The unit features multiple interfaces including USB 2.0 and IEEE 1284 parallel interface. The printer is network capable through a built-in Ethernet 10/100 Base TX and can be wirelessly enabled via an 802.11b wireless LAN. (Winner of Printerdb.com’s Great Value ?

A Colorful Solution ? CLP-510N Color Laser Printer: This new network-read color laser printer, launched at CES 2005, meets the color imaging needs of small and medium-sized businesses and offers a host of industry-leading features one doesn’t find on comparable units such as built-in automatic duplexing for error free two-sided printing and optional wireless capabilities. The NO NOIS static engine, designed by Samsung, ensures quiet and reliable operation with the added benefit of ease of use that is truly unique in this product category. This network-ready printer is perfect for use in corporate workgroup environments. You can print bright colored charts and presentations at a fraction of the cost of outsourcing the jobs. MSRP = $499.99. The Ultimate Four-in-One Solution: SCX-4720F Multi-function Printer (MFP): This powerful yet compact flatbed laser-based multi-function with built in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is ideal for offices that need complete document management capabilities but don't want to be overrun with bulky machinery and complicated setups. With the SCX-4720F (MSRP $499.99) Samsung offers four-in-one functionality for printing, copying, color scanning, and faxing. This 22 page-per-minute unit also features the category's first USB Direct port for computer-free scanning and printing which lets users scan-to-folder or scan-to-e-mail as a single step function.
"The SCX-4720F embodies Samsung's commitment to delivering superior multifunction solutions that simplify enterprise office environments," said Chanel O'Connor, Senior Product Manager for Samsung's Information Technology Division (ITD) "Powerful features such as ID Card Copy, Network scanning and Scan-to-e-mail are simple to use, greatly enhancing productivity and value."
"ID Card Copy," created initially for medical and healthcare applications, enables users to copy both sides of a document, such as a license or insurance card, onto one side of a piece of paper, and reduces paper waste. With an intuitive panel layout, many functions can be performed with the touch of a single button, including TonerSave. The built-in Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) makes it painless to manage large copy/scan/fax jobs. (Winner of Printerdb.com's Great Value ? Total Cost of Ownership Award.)
