Ridgefield Park, NJ—Samsung Electronics America introduced its latest wireless printers for personal, home office and small business users. The Samsung CLP-325W and multifunction CLX-3185FW are engineered to deliver high-quality prints using Samsung’s new polymerized chemical toner and have a small footprint and simple functionality.
“We develop printers with the knowledge that customers are looking for intuitive, stylish devices that easily integrate into their daily lives,” said Ken Colby, director of printer marketing at Samsung Electronics Enterprise Business division. “By developing printers that deliver high-quality prints, feature wireless functionality and are simple to use, Samsung is providing smart solutions for consumers.”
The CLP-325W and CLX-3185FW feature Samsung’s new polymerized chemical toner, which was developed to create high-resolution, high-gloss prints. The toner is also said to produce more durable prints thanks to the chemical toner fusing ability. By having stronger fusing, the print is preserved with less image destruction.
The printers are built to consume less energy; the high transfer efficiency of the printers creates a thin and uniform toner layer, which allows them to create less waste toner and to use a lower fusing temperature. The toner also uses up to 35 percent less electricity compared to manufacturing conventional toner, which results in a significant reduction in carbon dioxide, according to Samsung
In addition, both printers have speeds of 17 pages per minute (ppm) in the monochrome setting and 4 ppm in the color setting. Available in Samsung’s signature black finish, the printers sport a stylish exterior design and both offer the one-touch Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button, to ensure setting up a wireless connection is quick, easy and secure.
Both units also are compatible with Samsung’s AnyWeb Print software, which enables users to print just the information they need. Using this software, consumers can select, drag and drop contents of interest from various Web pages onto a blank page that can then be saved or printed.
As a multifunction printer, the CLX-3185FW can copy, scan, fax and print, and this model includes a LCD control panel and blue compass navigational system that allows consumers to browse through multifunction options.
The CLP-325W and CLX-3185FW will be available January 2011 at street prices $199.99 and $399.99, respectively. samsung.com
