The Samsung CLX-3175Fn is a color laser printer that has multiple functions. It can print, act as a photocopier, scan documents and pictures, and even send faxes. You can put up to 15 pages at once into the printer, which makes it easy to scan, photocopy, and fax a large amount of documents at once. This is called an automatic document feeder, or ADF, and is much easier than doing everything one at a time. It is also able to print up to 15 ppm, or pages per minute, making this printer relatively fast overall. The CLX-3175FN is smaller than most inkjet printers, so it’s more convenient and easier to place in your home.
The printer comes with built-in networking capabilities via an ethernet port. If you connect the printer to a router with an ethernet cable, all desktops and laptops in the house will be able to print as long as they have a wireless connection with the router. Samsung provides software for both Windows and Mac, so almost any computer will be able to use it to print, fax, and scan. In addition to ethernet, the CLX-3175FN also has a USB port, which will allow you to print pictures directly from a digital camera.
The CLX-3175FN has great quality in its output. Almost all of the text that it prints is clear and easy to read. It performs well when printing photographs and other graphics and is able to produce solid, deep colors. It has a 2-inch LCD screen that lets you change a few settings, but there are a large amount of additional settings that can be accessed on your computer. One unique feature that Samsung provides is printing from any Android smartphone or tablet, which you can do by downloading Samsung’s free Android app.
The CLX-3175FN from Samsung is a wonderful color laser printer with many features. The capabilities to copy, fax, scan and print from digital cameras and Android devices, and connect to a router with ethernet makes this printer very powerful.
