Samsung today unveiled six new A4 colour lasers printers for the home office and small business markets. The company says its new range, which includes single function and multifunction models, is aimed at users who want simple-to-use and easy-to-manage printers, as well as printers that won't take up too much space on a desk. Wireless, direct printing capabilities will be built-in to five of the new models, which will have support for iOS, Android and Windows devices through Samsung's Mobile Print Application.

A big selling point for all the new printers is Samsung's Rendering Engine for Clean Pages (RECP) technology, which improves the print clarity and colour rendering over the company's previous generation laser printers. All printers in the range will feature RECP, as well as a new Polymerize toner, which Samsung says also helps to produce clearer print quality. All of the new printers except for the entry-level single function model have dual CPUs at their disposal to speed up data processing and print tasks.

The single function models in the range are the CLP-365W, CLP-415NW and the CLP-680ND/680DW, the first model being an entry-level model with a top speed of 4 pages per minute in colour, with a 2400x600dpi output, manual duplexing and a 150-sheet paper tray. The high-end printer features built-in duplexing, USB printing. Wi-Fi (for the DW version), and improved speed and paper-holding capacity. It's aimed at business users.

Multifunction models are the CLX-3305FW, CLX-4195FW, and the CLX-6260FD/FR/FW. For the entry-level multifunction unit, which can print, scan and copy, you can expect a top print speed of 4ppm in colour, Wi-Fi direct printing, manual duplexing, USB printing and a 150-page paper cassette. The other models add colour touchscreen interfaces, faxing capability, higher print speeds and beefier paper handling -- the business-oriented CLX-6260FW can do 24ppm in colour, has a paper capacity of 250 sheets and a duty cycle of 60000 pages per month.

Anti-paper jamming technology is also being touted by Samsung, as well as high-yield toner cartridges, which the company hopes will result in a low total cost of ownership. The new design of the printers makes them much easier to service than the models in the previous range, with cartridge replacement, for example, being doable with just one hand from the front of the machine, and the new cartridge layout has resulted in printers that are smaller than before.

Printers in the range that use Samsung's SyncThru Web Service (such as the CLP-680, also have built-in support for Google Cloud Print, which will make it simple to print documents from anywhere to your home or office, as long as you have an Internet connection.

The new layout of the cartridges makes the business-oriented CLX-6260 multifunction model very easy to maintain.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
