Samsung CLP-415N Colour Laser Printer – it’s great on pearlised paper

Perfect and excellent delivery.

It’s great on pearlised paper. Bought this printer for printing wedding stationary, it’s great on pearlised paper, and for printing photos, but smudges on hammered card, i can live with that as won’t be printing any more hammered card, it has ink saving mode and energy saving mode, should have bought one years ago instead of all those cheap printers we have bought, price is great and would definitely recommend. Inks are a bit pricy but last for absolute ages.

  • Buy “Sold by Amazon” or at least “Fulfilled by Amazon”

  • Dont expect much and you’ll be happy

Output is excellent quality, its a cheap machine and the oem toners are not exorbitant compared to others. Seems to be a samsung ‘thing’; like some other of their hardware the software for managing it and network setup are diabolically bad – and i know my way around these things. My printer simply will not wake on lan (if you google around you can find that this is not just a problem with this laser printer – it is a problem with most of their lasers) and i have resorted simply to leaving it on – which works. It also runs hot – paper that used to come out of my hp 2600n reasonably flat and cool emerges with steam (yes steam, it is not smoke) rising from it if the pack has been open for a bit and the paper has picked up a bit of moisture. Be prepared to spend money on high quality paper. I can live with it given the print quality and the price. One final thing; their setup cd (and the downloaded exe i tried) simply refused to run on one of my pcs (and yes – other installation/setup things are fine on it so its something to do with the structure of the installer they have used). I was actually forced to install it as a local usb printer using copied over drivers from another machine and then converted it to make it a network printer. (see ‘software’ comment above.

Perfect and excellent delivery.

It does everything i need it to do – probably not as well as a higher priced ‘all singing and dancing model’ but for my needs, it does the job. I’d like to add that i’m on my second one of these – the first lasted all of ten minutes. After printing a test page it gave up the ghost completely with a ‘contact samsung / return to manufacturer fault’. But the sellers – printerland – were absolutely brilliant about that, putting me in contact with samsung and then dispatching a new one almost immediately and arranging collection and return of the defunct one. The sellers could not have been aware that first one they sent was a ‘monday morning build’. Overall i’m happy with the printer, vividly sharp colours and clear prints – and at a fraction of the cost per print for an ‘equivalent’ inkjet printer. I was a little pessimistic after reading some reviews about print quality, but i can’t fault the copies it produces. . Even after going to specsavers. I’d recommend the printer to anyone and even more so i would wholeheartedly recommend the sellers – printerland – for their no quibbles, polite and prompt after sales service.

  1. Had issues with it printing in the right orientation initially. But rectified it by uninstalling the software and putting it back on. Had it for almost 2 years and we have never had to replace either cartridge and we still have about 40% on both cartridges. I would recommend it but the downside is the cost of cartridge when needing replaced. You can refill them yourself with a kit.

    Dont expect much and you’ll be happy. Lets start off by saying that for the price, the print quality is actually what i wanted. Now for the things i don’t like, it’s bulky and noisy. Everytime you turn it on it sounds like it’s about to take off. The wakeup mode rarely works, which means if you press print while it’s off or in standby. All you get its a “printer not found” error, you need to turn it on. Wait for the pre flight checks then press print. It came with an eu plug not a uk plug, this may have been down to amazon simply not stating this as a fact but i had to buy a uk kettle plug before i got it running.

    The colour reproduction is excellent. The colour reproduction is excellent. However, the paper does tend to curl at the corners so if you are wanting double sided printing it is best to wait for it to cool down and also place the sheets under a heavy book otherwise when you feed it in the second time the corners fold over so you do not get all the printing on the second side.

    Great print quality and allowed me to use airprint. . Easy setup allows airprint and google print. Print speed and quality very good as well. Makes more noise than a regular laser printer but nothing that would stop me recommending the product to anyone.

    1. Buy “sold by amazon” or at least “fulfilled by amazon”. This is a recommendation from an amazed user. This is one of the best buy i have ever made on printers. I know that the consumables are expensive, but, the printing speed and quality is good at this price. This model has much improved performance when compared to the clp-360 series. As the clp-360/365 clx-3300/3305 series have only one drum for 4 colours, the colour document printing speed is extremely slow (4 ppm only), but this has individual drum attached to the toner cartridge which means colour printing and b&w printing speed is just the same. It is more than enough for me.
