A Peek At The Chief Specs Of The Samsung CLX-3175FN Printer

by erin on June 6, 2011

The good thing about getting an all-in-one machine is you need to buy only one unit instead of different ones. Though they enable you to save money, still a lot of them are bulky. The Samsung CLX-3175FN printer is an all-in-one machine but smaller compared to its rivals. Having a compact black body that may be placed virtually anywhere in the workplace, it can print, scan, copy and fax.

Top Panel

It weighs slightly over 15 kg and its form factor measures 415 mm x 342 mm x 373 mm (width x height x depth). The buttons are placed on the top panel together with a 2-liner LCD which makes operation a breeze. It’s also quieter too compared to others because there’s the NO NOIS engine within it, maintaining the printing noise below 46 dBA.


Being a laser printer, it can dish out up to 16 monochrome pages and 4 color pages a minute. Such is based on using A4 media, and may still vary based on factors like the computer used or the document’s content. This machine employs a 2400 x 600 dpi (dots per inch) resolution in coming up with crisp texts and well-detailed images. The printer language available is SPL-C and there’s also a manual duplex support.

Output Requirements

To help catch up with your day-to-day output requirements, there’s the 150-sheet input cassette tray and 80-sheet (face down) output capacity. Media sizes it can work on are those from as little as 76 mm x 160 mm to as large as 216 mm x 356 mm. Media types supported are regular paper, glossy, recycled, letterhead, punched, card, labels, envelopes and transparencies. Monthly duty cycle is listed at 20000 pages.

Starter Toner

When you purchase the machine, it already comes with starter toner cartridges in black, yellow, magenta and cyan. The black cartridge can yield as much as 1000 prints, while the rest can yield up to 700 prints each. The toner cartridges remain in place while printing, thanks to the unique design of this machine, so noise can be reduced while operating.


It employs a flatbed type of scanner. It has a 1200 x 1200 dpi optical resolution, although it may be enhanced to a resolution of as much as 4800 x 4800 dpi. There are certain features around for your scanning convenience, such as scanning directly to an application, a network, folder or USB-enabled gadget plugged into this machine.


Working as a copier, it can take on monochrome and color tasks alike. The first monochrome copy is out in 18 seconds, while the first color one takes less than 45 seconds to be ejected. When using A4 media, it’s capable of churning out up to 16 monochrome and 4 color copies a minute. It’s possible to reduce or enlarge the document (25 to 400 percent), and there are functions like ID, N-UP, poster and clone copies.


This all-in-one machine also works as an ITU-T G3 class fax. It has a 300 x 300 dpi resolution for monochrome documents, while it uses a 200 x 200 dpi resolution for color ones. A 2MB memory is around, and the transmission speed is 33.6 Kbps.

Hi-Speed USB

Hooking up the Samsung CLX-3175FN printer to a computer or a network is done via the integrated hi-speed USB 2.0 and Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX ports. The USB port enables you to print files directly from a mobile phone, camera or USB flash memory without switching on a computer and with using printer toner.
