Its small footprint, wireless connectivity and great print quality all add up to a 4 out of 5 rating for the Samsung CLX-3175FW.

Good Points of the Samsung CLX-3175FW
The Samsung CLX-3175FW is an affordable laser printer that does everything you need for a small office. Wireless set-up is quick and painless, while print quality is exceptional. The print speed of this printer is quite fast, as advertised and it runs quietly in the background—you won’t even notice it’s printing. The fact that this all-in-one printer does not take up too much desk space is also an advantage.
Bad Points of the Samsung CLX-3175FW
The paper tray of this printer is flimsy and is engineered rather poorly. The instructions included are also difficult to understand and comes in CD format—it would be more practical to have an actual booklet of instructions with it. The Samsung CLX-3175FW also does not connect to Apple Airport Express—you would have to use a separate router.
