As much as I’d like to get away from printing, you can’t help but find yourself using more and more paper by the day. The paperless office is still a pipe dream for most of us. I have clients requesting original printed invoices, accounts requiring printed receipts and vendors looking for a printed copy of my presentation- pretty much on a weekly basis. Even with minimal usage, I still end up printing at least a hundred papers per month. For this job, you would probably want to get a printer that doesn’t take much space, doesn’t cost too much and provides a decent output. That, along with a few more tricks is what the Samsung CLP-325W printer is capable of.

Packaged in a relatively small box, at least as far as printers are concerned, the Samsung CLP-325 comes bundled with a power cord, a quickstart guide and a drivers CD. Four toner cartridges are also included inside the package with the black cartridge rated at 1000 pages and Yellow, Magenta and Cyan cartridges rated at 500 pages. Replacement toners cartridges are rated at 1500 pages for black and 750 for color so you are not getting a full toner cartridge which is sadly true for almost every single printer that is sold.

The Samsung CLP-325W measures 388mm x 313mm x 243mm making it reasonably small for a color laser printer. In fact, it is the smallest color laser printer that I have seen. The input tray can take upto 130 sheets and with its 360MHz CPU, it has a printing speeds of 16ppm for black and 4ppm for color in fast mode with a 2400×600 dpi effective output. On the connectivity front, the Samsung CLP-325W supports USB, Wired and Wireless connections making it very flexible for any location.
