Samsung CLP-310N Colour Laser Printer With Ethernet Connectivity – Happy laser printer owner :-)

Happy laser printer owner :-). I needed a new printer and was fed up with our ink jet drying up and the rubbish print quality despite doing a head cleaning before each printing. So i looked into laser printers, ideally colour ones- and cheap. The samsung clp-310n had good reviews so i decided to get one. It’s my first laser printer and i can’t compare it to other laser printers but the print quality is excellent, i decided to try and print a photo on normal paper and it looked amazing. It prints so quick, too, and i find it quiet. Very happy with my purchase.

This is a very good, low cost, colour laser printer which has performed faultlessly since it arrived.

Works with a mac – farewell dried up inkjets. Having received good reports on samsung lasers, i bought this one as the cheapest colour laser with a network card i could find. It works well on a lan and my mac running 10. 6 found it easily on ‘bonjour’. Although i did have to update the drivers for 10. 6 – but they were there on the samsung website just after 10. 6 came out (unlike some competitors)print quality appears good and it is noticeably quieter than other laser printers i have had. Consumables appear to be not overpriced,on the downside it is not that fast, the paper tray is quite small and not intuitive to fit correctly. So i have got exactly what i wanted at a very good price. If you are sick and tired of dried up inkjets this machine is worthy of serious consideration.

Easy to fix up and quiet in operation network laser printer. Received the samsung clp-310n quickly and in good condition. Plugged in the mains and rj45 network plug and cable, the other end of which plugs into my netgear router. Held stop button down for more than 5 secs to get a set-up printout from the printer which indicated my router had dynamically assigned an ip address to it. Installed the software provided on my two desktop and two laptop computers, being careful to assign an ip address the router had allocated, the printed a test page successfully from each computer. Very quiet and quite a fast printer, with excellent colour rendering. Late news: had a brief mains power outage which, on reboot of the router, caused a new ip address to be allocated to the printer. Have overcome this by entering the original address permanently (no longer dynamically assigned) for the printer which maintains communication between the two.

This is a very good, low cost, colour laser printer which has performed faultlessly since it arrived.

Great printer, but too much goes to landfill. I’ve had this printer for couple of months now. It’s been totally reliable, and i’m very satisfied with the quality of the printout, both black and white and colour. It’s reasonably light if i have to move it, and its footprint is satisfactorily small. Compared to my previous printer (hp inkjet 2300) it’s quiet; printing is faster, except for the initial sheet whichseems slow to me. The direct network connection to the router made it very useful in our home, which has 2 computers. However i had some trouble configuring the router so that, if it was powered off, it didn’t assign the printer a different address. If that happens the printer driver can’t find the printer. Unfortunately the cartridges are a serious issue. They don’t last long (i suspect their lifetime is somewhat shorter than samsung claims).

Good value, small colour printer. Easy to install, works all over the building. Excellent quality generally, photographs extremely good. Good value for small office.

  1. Ok for cheap printing, not for marketing material. I hoped that this would replace my expensive-to-print-on canon inkjet but it does not handle graphics files well enough. Although text is sharp with reasonable ink coverage, jpgs and pdfs have noticeable scattering, muddied colours and fuzz. Not a problem for casual printing, but for marketing materials (flyers, bookmarks) you’re better of getting the job done by a professional printer. I certainly wouldn’t print photos on it, so will retain the canon pixma for high-quality graphic printing. As an invoice-printer, it’s simple and does the job well, although it does curl the pages up due to the heat, and they don’t flatten on the small output tray, which therefore fills up rather quickly. The paper input tray is irritating, if you’re loading different paper/labels, as you can’t access the tray or feed paper into it easily without pulling the whole tray out from the bottom of the printer, which demands extra space in front of the tray which you might not have.
