Samsung SCX-3205

RH Numbers

Smoothly designed, with a small, neat footprint, this machine is designed to be opened when used, as the paper tray is the front cover and the output tray pulls out from just about. The sparsely-populated control panel still contains all the functions, as there’s no fax facility on this machine and only a USB port. There’s a button for a direct screen print from an attached PC, which can be handy. The highest speed I measured was 14ppm and there’s no duplex print. Output from the machine is excellent for text and good for greyscales and photos, but the cost per page, from the 1500-page cartridge, is a high 3.3p. Samsung is phasing this product out, but it's still widely available.

A small footprint machine, though one that gets a good bit bigger when you open the 150-sheet paper tray to print. The controls are arranged on a fold-out panel on the right-hand side. The machine offers wireless connectivity as well as USB. There’s no duplex print, but the single-sided speed reaches nearly 17ppm, a worthwhile improvement on the SCX-3205. An A4 copy takes just 10s. Print quality is good from the enhanced 1,200dpi print engine and page costs are a bit better, at 2.9p, though still not up with the best in this group.
