Samsung CLP-500

PC Magazine
11 February 2004
  • Excerpt: The Samsung CLP-500 can be summed up in six words: excellent output quality at slow speeds. But that's not the whole story. It's also the only color laser in this roundup that includes a duplexer. And it's the only host-based printer that works with Windows, Mac, and Linux. The cost per page is high for monochrome, at 2.6 cents per page, but a much better 8.1 cents per color page. Output quality was consistently good to excellent.

Samsung CLP-500 Review

  • Conclusion: Still, while we doubt its cost-effectiveness for a company that produces thousands of pages per day, the Samsung fills a nifty niche if you need a few hundred PowerPoint handouts or marketing-flyer pages each day. One reason why is its friendly paper handling: For legal-sized pages, you'll have to fold down the 100-sheet (or 30-transparency or 10-envelope) multipurpose tray at the right, but letter or A4 sheets get an honest-to-goodness, photocopier-style 250-sheet...
  • Pros: Top-quality color laser printing at a low price, Double-sided printing and real paper drawer (not plastic tray) standard; more memory and paper capacity optional
  • Cons: Big, heavy, and not so cheap when it comes to consumables

Samsung CLP-500 review

15 April 2004
  • Excerpt: Samsung sent us its CLP-500, a printer that proved to be impressively quiet. It wasn't quite whisper-level when printing, but it wouldn't be a bother if you were on the phone next to it while it was churning out pages. This is due in part to the single-pass print technology - there's no large carousel rotating to present each colour in turn; instead, the toner cartridges are stacked in line inside the device.

  • Conclusion: Le constructeur coréen signe une imprimante couleur laser d’entrée de gamme fiable, relativement rapide et dotée de capacités réseau. Son principal handicap tient à son volume d’impression limité.

Цветной лазерный принтер Samsung CLP-500

  • Summary: Samsung CLP-500 лишь дебютирует в нашей рознице, и у потенциальных покупателей, несомненно, будет масса вопросов, традиционно не затрагиваемых в наших статьях: о ценах, о доступности печатных картриджей, наконец, о взаимозаменяемости тонера. Разумеется, все это в той или иной степени разъяснится со временем, хотя, можно попробовать провести аналогию с уже достаточно давно присутствующими в нашей рознице монохромными лазерниками Samsung.
