Samsung CLP680DW colour Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
Before purchasing a printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The CLP680DW is a colour laser office printer from Samsung. It produces good quality full colour output. It is a good performer providing quality prints with good speeds .
It's a robustly built device, targeted at low volume workloads in a home office or for personal use. We think it is best suited for small offices with very light printing needs,
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.
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
The CLP680DW comes ready to connect to a computer network. Allowing multiple users and devices to share this printer between them.. This printer comes with an ethernet port as standard.

We review all printers in comparison with each other - meaning that 1 star indicates that a printer is in the bottom 20% for that attribute or function. When shopping for a printer, you should keep the star rating in mind and compare it to the prices being offered - low rated printers, at cheap prices can be the perfect choice. Conversely, when thinking of purchasing an expensive printer - ensure that it is highly rated, or it is simply not worth paying extra for.
