The SCX-3405FW’s innovative features include One Touch Eco Button, Easy Printer Management and wireless printing from mobile devices. You can print quickly and efficiently and save space and money with this Samsung multifunction printer. Measuring at 402 x 293 x 296mm, the SCX-3405FW is one of the smallest MFP mono lasers in the market. The small footprint is a trade-off for a lack of duplex printing and a limited 150-sheet tray. However, the paper handling is adequate for most personal use where the small size is more important. It supports print, scan, copy and fax and comes with high speed USB 2.0, Wireless 802.11b/g/n and Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX. It’s a pretty good-looking, compact printer, and also features a dust-free design. The flip-out control panel is a thoughtful feature.

Just plug the printer in via ethernet to the office network and install the latest drivers and printer management software from the web. You can also setup WiFi connectivity with SCX-3405FW’s One Touch Wi-Fi Setting. Simply select the WPS (WiFi Protected Set-up) button on the access point (router), press the WPS button on the printer and you’re done. No hassles – no manually entering wireless network name and security key or password on all the wireless devices. Samsung rates the SCX-3405FX at up to 20ppm in standard A4, with a fast First Page Out of 8.5 seconds. This is pretty quick, no complaints about speed performance, even with documents laid with pictures and text. The MFP prints out at 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution The printer is considerably quick for previews and actual scanning. The SCX-3405FW supports optical resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi and enhanced resolution of up to 4,800 x 4,800 dpi. Copying is plenty quick too, taking roughly 15 seconds. It has an ID Copy feature, for duplex copying of your ID, something small businesses would welcome. The SCX-3405FW faxes at a resolution of up to 300 x 300dpi, and has a memory bank of 7MB, good for a maximum of 500 pages. Like any other fax machine, it supports auto-dial with extra handy features like Multi- Send, Delayed Send and Fax Forwarding. Output quality for the SCX-3405FW is a bit of a mixed bag, but its strongest scores are for text and graphics. The text is easily good enough for any typical business document, even if you need small font sizes. Depending on your level of perfectionism, you might even consider it good enough for desktop publishing. Graphics quality is similarly good enough for any internal business need, including PowerPoint handouts and the like. Photo quality is good enough to print, say, Web pages with recognizable photos, which makes it good enough for internal business use. However, there's an obvious loss of shading across the entire range from white to black. Overall, the Samsung SCX-3405FW offers all the MFP features you're likely to need in a personal printer—scanning, faxing, and copying. It’s small enough to be a good physical fit as a personal printer, as well as a good fit for what it can do.
