Samsung offer a range of five laser printers including the ML, SCX, CLP, CLX and SF series. Ink and toner for Samsung printers can be as diverse as the printing applications that they are designed for. The ink and toner for Samsung printers ranges from the compact bottles to the full blown, high yield ranges of toner cartridges. Here is a breakdown of the ink and toner options for Samsung printers.
The ML series are monochrome printers, therefore black is the only choice and a good choice for text only applications. The toner comes in a single cartridge format with yields ranging from 1500 to 15000 standard pages.
Once again this is a cartridge system of monochrome toner for this wide range of multi-function machines of varying capacities. The cartridges in this range run from 1500 to 8000 standard pages depending upon the printer model.
This where the ink and toner for Samsung printers becomes a little more complicated. This is a range of full colour printers which require four separate colours of ink to produce full colour images. The four colours are black, cyan, yellow and magenta. The smaller printers in the range use the compact bottles of toner whereas the larger machines use four more traditional cartridges.
The CLX series is the multi-function version of the CLP series and therefore the ink and toner options for these Samsung printers follows the same pattern, compact bottles for the lower capacity printers and cartridges for the high capacity.
The SF is Samsung’s range of fax machines which all require the appropriate monochrome cartridge.
The ink and toner required will obviously depend upon the machine in question. However, the running costs incurred need to be a major consideration when choosing a printer. The yield cost of the ink and toner for Samsung printers must be investigated before making a final decision on a machine. Thankfully, if the main usage is monochrome but colour is sometimes needed, the four individual cartridge systems will allow you to replace individually as required.
