Excerpt: Samsung, www.samsungusa.com $600 street Rated speed (Color): 5 ppm; Rated speed (Mono): 21 ppm; Maximum paper size: Legal; Input capacity: 350 sheets; Duplexing; Claimed cost per monochrome page: 1.06 cents per page; Claimed cost per color page: 2.08 cents per page. Excellent paper handling for the price, including built-in duplexer, 250-sheet input paper tray, and 100-sheet multipurpose tray. Text output quality is low for a laser printer.
Summary: Performance wise the CLP-550 does quite well and there is truth in its printing speed claims of 21ppm for monochrome and 5ppm for color (I actually timed it). One thing I have noticed is that the brightness of the printed images seems to be a bit on the darker side. I tried playing around with some software settings, like the brightness adjuster in the CLP-550 properties menu, but it didn't really seem to cure the problem.
