As this is not a multifunctional printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.

The Samsung CLP680DW features a touch screen panel user interface and performing other useful tasks.

Printing

The CLP680DW has acceptable full colour printing, with a print resolution of 600 x 600 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.

Offering A4 print speeds of up to 24 pages per minute, this printer is excellent for everyday printing. Although it will struggle to complete medium-large print jobs in a reasonable timeframe. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 17 seconds meaning individual print jobs are completed efficiently.

Extra print features for this device include: Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
