Samsung CLP-320 Colour Laser Printer – Mac users have no worries

How is the financial industry dealing with the pensions timebomb?i bought this printer at a bargain amazon price to replace an ageing but good quality inkjet colour printer. It was delivered in less than 36 hours and up and running within minutes. The print quality is good particularly so with decent paper. Some might say that it is a little slow but is quicker than the machine it replaces, is cheaper run, because it is a laser the print is non-smudge and is overall better quality. A very pleasing purchase and from my perspective it is ‘a great little machine’.

I have to say i was sceptical about ever buying a colour laser printer, but this little beauty has proved me very wrong indeed it is the smallest colour laser printer in production, but this doesn’t mean light. Beware, it is exactly 2 stone in weight . But for all the internal technology it is hard to believe it is all packed into such a tiny box although the image is a bit different to ink-jet, it is far far superior. The printed finish is actually a bit glossy. The text is unbelievably perfect and crisp, even under a magnifying glass. The blacks are blacker/ the colour is more accurate and saturated. You will very soon forget messy inkjet there are a few issues to bear in mind. 1 as far as i can see , the printer has to be turned on manually at the top switch,not from your pc( in other words, it doesn’t turn on at a print command )2 the paper comes out red-hot, so it tends to curl a bit with bond. 3 the 4 replacement print cartridges are very expensive, but they give a lot of prints.

Does what it says on the tin. Early days but a tidy little printer for the price. Downscaled from an a3 laser printer. A3 was a very expensive professional printer, which this small printer obviously isn’t. But for the price who can complain. It is perfectly adequate for home office use and keeps churning out good quality print, ideal for internal use and invoicing etc. I wouldn’t use it for printing that is intended for resale. Posters/stationery etc, as it isn’t in that kind of print quality range.

  • Cheap and cheerful.
  • Amazing at the price
  • Fab Printer & Fabulous Price with Reasonable Toner Prices.

Good printer for a good value. The printer is as good as it gets for that price. Let’s face it, colour laser printers are not the cheap ones to get. Waiting time for a printout depends on the amount of colour, it its just writing – black – the first page usually comes out after 15 seconds for me or so, than following pages are out within 5 seconds or so. Small printer, easy to use, easy to refill the toner if you don’t want to spend loads of money like myself. It could be more efficient, but considering that i use it for home purposes, i don’t mind spending extra cent on page, comparing to my previous printer. Printer doesn’t include the usb cable, which is a petty. One of the problems that i had with it, that after a few weeks, printer wouldn’t print properly. I found that the pages inside the tray were a little moist which was the problem. The function that printer has regarding the humidity was useless, didn’t help, but maybe it has nothing to do with this.

Not only better than expected, better than hoped for. Samsung clp-320 colour laser printeruntil now i’ve relied on an epson inkjet for colour printing, following the ‘lasers can’t do photos as good as inkjets’ school of thought (plus high price of colour lasers). Having read recent reviews of good results for this model, already owning a samsung mono laser and seeing the price for the cp320 on amazon, i took a chance – and found it exceeded not only my expectations but also my wildest hopes. Even on standard copier paper, text is sharp, colours are well defined and vibrant but smoothly shaded where they should be – skin tones (the real test) are smooth and realistic. To anyone who is still unsure regarding colour photo reproduction on laser printers, i would say that you need worry no longer – they can do the job now.

The samsung clp-320 color laser printer is one of the best things i ever bought, inkjet printers should be all buried to death in comparison and the stupid inkjet cartridges that are a rip off in price and horrible to use and dry after leaving for a couple of weeks. You will never have this problem with laser printing and the colors are amazing and dry when printed. I am over the moon with this item, go ahead and dump your inkjet rubbish printers.

Excellent value with one catch. The quality of this printer is 10/10the value of this printer is 10/10the speed of this printer is 10/10until you run out of ink, then you realize that a single new ink toner will cost you 50% of the entire value of the printer, average ebay clone around £35, however i would advice against selecting the cheapest provider. Buy this printer if you’re preparing for some form of presentation or venture capital disclosure event, and need to print out lots of stuff very clear. Don’t buy this printer just on price because you will cry when you realize that if just one of the four inks goes down you cannot print anything.I’ve just bought a second printer because its cheaper than buying some new inks – crackers i know but such is life.

    Compact colour laser printer. This is the first colour laser printer i purchased and it is well worth the money. The samsung clp-320 printer has a small footprint. It is capable of producing high quality 2,400 x 600 dpi resolution. The printer also comes with an autoload feeder with a capacity of 130 sheets. I am currently using the printer on a windows 10 pro pc. I have tried to get the wireless print function to work on the printer but to no avail. Highly recommend this product.

    We’ve had this now for a few years and it continues to operate faultlessly. Good startup speed, quality output and not too expensive on toner and still cheaper than our ink guzzling epson all in one.

    Average print quality, tiny paper tray, surprisingly long lasting toner. . I bought this as a replacement for an hp colour laser when the price of new toner exceeded the cost of a new printer. Sadly it was a disappointment. The colours were always average at best, it wasn’t fast and the tray was an appalling bit of design. Not only did it hold about 3 sheets of paper but it juts out from the front of the machine far more than it appears in the publicity photos. That said, the toner lasted ages despite seemingly being “trial” size and given a shake lasted at least another six months. Last seen at my brother’s house when i donated it to him. Unsure of current location although suspect its gone to silicon heaven now.

    Best printer i have ever owned. I have owned this printer for almost 3 years now and it has performed flawlessly the whole time. It was originally bought for printing uni work and proved very cost effective and good quality. It is not a photo printer so if that is what you want to use it for then don’t bother look at something else but, for a general purpose office or home printer this is flaw less.Toners last forever and the printer delivers every time without fault even after not been used for a couple of months?.

    I really liked this printer and it worked perfectly with my very old computer. But when that computer finally conked out after 12 years, it did not work with my new applymac. As i bought a wireless keyboard and mouse, as i don’t like using trackpads and find the keyboard on laptops too flat, i decided that it was time to get a wireless printer. This printer was used my me for quite some time, and i particularly liked the fact that the cartridges are much larger then quite a number of other printers. However, this samsung has now got another good home where it is performing well. I would recommend this model as the quality of printouts was very good.

    1. I bought this printer over a year ago and have been using it in my home office since. The print speed is good, quality is excellent and a year later i’m still working on the orignal toner cartridge. For an inexpensive but good quality home printer, i wouldn’t look elsewhere. So glad i don’t have an annoying inkjet any more with paper jams, cartridges that don’t last long and average print quality.
