Tests and conclusions

The Samsung SCX-4100 multi-function is certainly an entry level model, but complete with all the most important functions to meet business needs. According to Hardware Central, the size and solidity of the peripheral are definitely two of its most important qualities. In spite of a not excessive printing speed, the final quality seems to be quite good. For a Word document, 14 seconds at a resolution of 600 dpi are enough; for 20 pages 1 minute and 38 seconds. As far as the scanner function is concerned, the test result has always been positive: the 24-bit color and B / W proved to be sufficiently brilliant. Does the toner normally print about 3000 pages before running out? the package bundled only 1000.

The zoom and resize options for the photocopies did not give any problems. The Samsung multi-function is a good product, and the comments left by users on ZDNet also confirm its overall quality. Certainly it is an essential model, and with a not too sophisticated design, but for small offices it seems to be ideal.
