Hi as anyone aquired the Samsung CLP-300 yet? if so how does it perform? and is it easy to refill cartridges. in the uk its available for £141.53 GBP using Google Checkout for the first time(£10 bonus) I have one on order will report my findings when it arrives.

Well the unit arrived well packed but alas no usb printer lead, why? they must cost only pence to manufacturers. lucky I had 1 or 2 knocking about.

Took all the wrappings and tapes off, loaded some ordinary copier paper. put the cartridges in. connected mains, & usb to pc. switched on printer then powered up pc. loaded drivers.and after a couple of setup sheet we was away ( all of 7mins I suppose)

Results of printing are o/k but theydon't compare with inkjets, but for everday colour printing they are fine, red tends to be on the brown side,

Well worth the £141 GBP it cost me inUK. just to have the thing print straight away instead of head cleans blocked heads etc.:cool:

I also have located and ordered refill toners for all colours and black for just over £30 GBP:-)

I found with the Samsung Toners you have to shake them before using them. If not you get the results of an inkjet printer without using the cleaning cycle.

I would be interested to see a picture from the new printer if you have one. It would be great for me, As I need something cheaper to use for business cards,Flyers,Brochures, ETC.

I have been researching about colour laser printers for quite some time now.

Have a look at the Ricoh SP 411dn - this printer seems to have all the bells and whistles including: excellent print quality and probably the lowest running costs.

Hope that helps.

Hi Barn Owl,

I think this Samsung Color Laser Printer is going to be my next printer. I also have found a supplier for the toner for around $35.00. The cartridges look like they are easy to refill also.

My wife uses a Samsung ML-2250 for her business and it produces very good results. I have just started refilling the cartridges for it. $8.00 a refill.
