Having your own printer is a massive help for college students. Having a color printer can naturally help your work stand out.
Many students live in dorms or shared living areas, where space-consuming, financially burdensome devices can be unwelcome. Today’s students would prefer a small, cost-effective printer that is easy to install and straightforward to manage.
Business Insider recently picked the Samsung Xpress SL-C430W as its “best color printer for college students overall.” 1 There are plenty of reasons why college students can benefit from using the C430W. Here are six ways this handy device can let you power through your studies!
#1. Declutter your living space
As Business Insider points out, the C430W is compact at a mere 382 x 396 x 211mm, “so it should fit in even the smallest of dorm rooms.”1 It also weighs just 10kg, meaning it will be no burden when it is time to move to a new room or house. With Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct compatibility, it also lets you do away with unsightly wires.
Despite its size, the C430W is just as ready to deal with hard work as the keenest of students – with 1GB each of HD space and RAM available.
#2. Create eye-catching classroom materials
Printing monochrome A4 from your dorm room is very helpful. For classroom tasks that involve a little more creativity, color can be a great aid.
The C430W features Rendering Engine for Clean Pages (ReCP) technology. This innovation lets you produce professional-looking images. It also helps to ensure that text is clearly legible, even at any font sizes.
You can use various paper types, sizes and thicknesses with the C430W – which lets you print flashcards on materials like cardstock.
#3. Print from your mobile device
Being able to print directly from your mobile device is a real bonus when you are juggling several assignments, or when you are short on time.
The C430W offers a range of mobile print options. You can use it in conjunction with the Samsung Mobile Print app to print Microsoft™ Office documents, PDFs, images, emails, webpages or materials from social media sites. You can also print from Google Drive, and enjoy Google Cloud Print™ and AirPrint™ compatibility.
#4. Work faster
Time is at a premium for most college students – assignment deadlines and work pile up fast. Dealing with slow-moving technology can be very frustrating in situations like these.
Fortunately, the C430W lets you print at high speeds, even for color jobs. You can print up to 18 monochrome pages per minute and up to four color pages per minute. As Business Insider points out, that can be “important for putting those last-minute touches on your papers.”
#5. Cut costs
Students often need to live on smaller budgets, and prefer not to spend a lot on printing supplies.
The C430W high-capacity toner cartridge can print up to 1,500 pages, and most other color printers print up to 1,100 pages – so you can save more when it comes to buying toner replacements. 2
The C430W is also ENERGY STAR®-qualified. That means that per the United States Department of Energy, it is classified as a device that “uses less energy, saves money and helps protect the environment.” 3
#6. Reduce stress with easy setups
It’s simple to install the C430W. Setups are easy with a quick, 3-step wireless process—no USB connection or CD required. If you do want to go wired connect the printer with a range of devices via a high-speed USB 2.0 connection.
Student life can be demanding. If you equip your dorm room with a device like the space-saving, cost-friendly C430W, your work will look like it belongs at the top of the class!
