The next wireless laser printer on our lineup is the Samsung CLP-415NW, a durable and flexible printer with a wide set of features, a great monthly duty cycle, color printing capabilities, high wireless sensitivity and fantastic help and support. Specifically, its color printing capabilities along with its high monthly duty cycle landed the Samsung CLP-415NW a spot on our lineup.
The most impressive part of the Samsung CLP-415NW is its monthly duty cycle. With an output of 40,000 pages, this printer won’t be wearing out anytime soon. While most manufacturers recommend that you don’t exceed 65 percent of a printer’s maximum monthly duty cycle, unless you’re cranking out more than 25,000 pages per month, this Samsung printer will serve your needs well.
One of the few downsides to this Samsung wireless laser printer is its slower print speed of 18 pages per minute. While the lower speed is somewhat understandable given its color printing capabilities, it’s still just a bit too slow to make it into the very top of our lineup.
During our testing, we found the wireless sensitivity of the Samsung CLP-415NW to be sufficient for most home office needs. It may have minor difficulties with more demanding circumstances in a professional office setting due to distance or interference, but it’s likely you won’t run into any major problems maintaining a wireless signal.
The Samsung CLP-415NW comes with 256MB of built-in storage, so you can keep frequently printed pages – like employee manuals, job applications, templates and contracts – readily available. It also offers USB direct print compatibility and a dedicated mobile app so you can print from your smartphone, tablet or other mobile device.
Like other wireless laser printers, the Samsung CLP-415NW comes with a standard one-year manufacturer’s warranty, protecting it from failure within the first year. This warranty is generally limited to errors in manufacturing and premature natural failure, so you may have difficulty redeeming the warranty for user-incurred damage.
The Samsung CLP-415NW offers impressive durability with a 40,000 page monthly duty cycle. With a print speed of 18 pages per minute, it's not a fast machine. However, it's exceptionally flexible with 256MB of onboard memory, color printing capabilities, and impressive help and support with a one-year warranty and myriad methods for contacting support, landing it a spot on our lineup of the best wireless laser printers available.
