The MD230 monitor is not just a device, but a kind of basis for a designer. A special mounting system allows you to form a set of 3 or 6 monitors, while the edges will be quite thin: a little more than 15 mm horizontally and 17 mm vertically. With this in mind, it is possible to assemble one large panel with a resolution of up to 5760x2160 pixels. In this case, each of the monitors can be connected to its own video signal source. For comfortable operation and adjustment of each display, there is a remote control that is connected to the first device. The 23-inch panels can be used separately, but when working together they provide incredible scope and freedom of action, especially when you have to work with large amounts of information. Do not forget that to maintain such a system, you will need the appropriate video cards. If we take a separate device, then we will see the most modern interfaces and enviable technical characteristics.

Initially, laser printers were a purely office attribute. And only with the beginning of mass production, they fell in price and moved to apartments. But this does not mean that the lasers have dropped their positions in the office - not at all, they are more alive than all living things! Economy, unpretentiousness, endurance and speed of work - these are the advantages of a classic office printer. The ML-2580N is an affordable SOHO class laser printer (small office or home office).

Finally it happened - color laser printers stopped costing space money, and their price dropped to such values ​​that such a device can be installed at home without harm to the family budget. And believe me, color printers are no worse, and even better than inkjet printers in a number of parameters! What are the advantages of the CLP-320 over monochrome brothers and inkjets? First of all, of course, it is worth mentioning the economy. If the color inkjet cartridges are enough for several hundred prints, then the Samsung cartridge will be able to produce about 1,500 pages - an excellent result, by the way! Moreover, you won't have to wait long for photos - for the first print, the printer will ask you to wait 26 seconds, but all subsequent ones will take off after 16. Print quality is also a serious advantage of a color laser printer. The laser device does not care whether the front photo paper or a regular sheet with a weight of 80 g / m2.

The printer is not the only actual device for the office or home. In the office, a copier is often needed, because every now and then you have to copy documents. At home, a scanner is often useful. It helps students to scan notes or books, and for everyone else it is a very convenient way to convert old paper photographs into "digital". MFPs come to the aid of workers and households - multifunctional devices that are in one person a printer, a scanner and a copier.

The SCX-3200 is one such MFP. It is a hybrid of monochrome laser printer and scanner with copy function. Due to the fact that the printer in the MFP is monochrome, the price of the device is low. The SCX-3200 is perfect for students and people working from home - for an MFP, the device is very beautiful and compact. Saves Printer and Cartridge - The Eco-Print button allows you to reduce your printer's toner and paper consumption. This happens due to fit on one sheet of paper two pages from the original document, and even printed in the toner save mode.

If a monochrome MFP is a device, rather, for the office, then a multi-functional device with color laser printing will have to be more at home. Although in business affairs, a color laser can come in handy - for example, in the process of creating a magazine.

One of the main criteria when choosing a technology, from the point of view of the buyer, of course, is the appearance of the device. And so something, but with the design of the CLX-3185 everything is in order. It is a compact (for MFPs) black device with rounded edges, a nice corner indicator light and a well-positioned control panel.

But the CLX-3185 is not a single good one. Despite combining several devices in one, they did not lose functionality within the MFP. The printed part is inherited from independent Samsung laser systems, and therefore we get a capacious color cartridge for one and a half thousand prints and a considerable performance of four color pages per second.A color MFP is especially useful when copying printed photographs - instead of ordering individual photographs at a photo shop, they can be copied immediately using the CLX-3185. Samsung chips, such as eco-printing (and copying), as well as the AnyWeb Print program and buttons for quickly creating and printing a screenshot, of course, are also present in this MFP, as well as in other printers of the company.
