Compact laser printer
Samsung Korea on Tuesday introduced what it claims are the smallest color laser printers ever built. According to the Akihabara News, the CLP-315K is 20 percent smaller than the previous generation the CLP-300; it operates at 45dB and features a resolution of 2,400 x 600 dpi, 32MB of internal memory, speed of 16 pages per minutes (ppm) in black and four ppm in color. In addition to the smaller footprints, Samsung claims that it has "drastically improved" the photo output quality.
The CLX-3175FNK, about 40 percent smaller than its predecessor (CLX-3160), is an all-in-one laser color printer with a built-in black/white scanner, and fax machine. The device allows users to scan documents to an USB-based thumbdrive as well as print from the device without using a PC, the report claims.
The report notes that both prices and availability were not available and that it is unknown whether the devices will be released in the US.
