Printing is easy and fast and although the photo quality isn't the best its not bad for a laser and its very fast, 30 seconds for the page to be done. The quality of colour documents is fantastic, very crisp and sharp with solid text and colour. Amazingly it also looks like you get full set of toners as I have printed 20 or 30 full A4 photo's and countless number of documents yet the toner report its still got 95% capacity left.
All in all I am very happy with the Samsung CLP-315W. Its easy to use, has fast printing and is a very nice looking machine. I got this printer because I was sick of every time I wanted to print something with my old inkjet I had to clean the heads and on some occasions I had to replace perfectly good ink cartridges because they had dried up. Also the WIFI allows me to stick this printer in a cupboard somewhere out of the way. I have my own laptop, my daughters laptop and my son's PC all connected via the WIFI and it all just works with no drama and no wires.
For the price I would highly recommend this printer.
You do need a network cable (not supplied) the one that comes with the machine is a special crossover cable for resetting things if you move to a new network. When connected by a normal cable you follow some simple instructions which registers the printer to the network. You NEED to know your network key for this to work.
Once that is done you then use the install disk on the machines you want it to work with in the usual fashion.
The manual asks you to print a properties page but doesn't say how. You simply press and hold the red triangular button on the top of the machine for more than 5 seconds. This will give you a two page document with all of the details you need to complete the wireless hook up.
The test page looks amazing, very vibrant and full of colour. Whilst it has been said that these aren't great for photo's, they will produce extremely good colour images on normal paper.
I love this machine after only an hour of getting to know it!
I would have given this printer the full 5 stars had it not been for the complicated set of putting this printer onto my network. But after a quick call to Samsung and speaking to someone in the UK I was up and running in around 20 minutes.
After this has been set up to sync with your wireless network (if you have one that is although not needed) I was able to sync any other item to it without the need for an IT degree. Like I said my PC was set up and printing wirelessly to this printer within 20 minutes. I then switched on my laptop installed the drivers and was able to print straight away.
The quality of the images printed is also very good and I have persuaded many friends to get one also.
No more cleaning print heads what a relief!
The printers come with the I.P address already set up to a default value.
Once you have mastered the paper tray and loaded the paper, plug the printer in and press the Stop button for 5 seconds. This prints out the wireless settings, make a note of the I.P address.
Next, you need to connect the printer to your existing router using an ethernet cable. Don't use the cable supplied as this is a crossover cable. Plug your ethernet cable from the printer to your router and leave it for about 1 minute. The printer will assign a new I.P address. To check it has, press the Stop button again for 5 seconds and let it print out another wireless settings page.
Now compare the I.p address from the first sheet to the second, you should see that the I.P address has now changed.
Good, now enter the new I.P address into your explorer address bar on your PC. This will bring up the SyncThru printer set up page. Go to the Network settings tab at the top and select wireless on the left menu tab. At the bottom of the page is a wireless set up wizard.Read more ›
