Looking for a new Printer/Scanner/Copier for your home or small office?
While the two previous printers in our round-up are ink-jet based, the Samsung CLX-3185 is a color laser printer and is probably the largest printer in our round-up. The reason for that is that it takes four toner cartridges which are pretty big in size and should easily last you a long time.
The Samsung CLX-3185FW features wired and wireless connectivity as well as scanning, printing and faxing options- if you need them. Setting up the device was fairly simple, however the LCD screen is quite tiny which makes scrolling through menu options a bit of a pain.
Strangely, the Samsung CLX-3185FW is the only device that doesn’t offer double-sided printing automatically. If you select that option in printing preferences, you have to manually open the tray and re-insert the paper to print on the other side. Also for some reason, I kept seeing a lot of “Paper Size Errors” on the LCD screen which would disappear after a few seconds and printing would resume.
