Samsung vs Lexmark – Samsung are the clear winners in this race!


Samsung ML-3710ND VS Lexmark E360dn

These two mono laser printers are aimed at the same type of end user. Lexmark claim a whopping 38ppm from their E360dn machine whereas Samsung claim just 35ppm from the ML-3710ND. This is the maximum possible print speed and does not take into account any processing time required. When printing the same page over and over it should achieve the manufacturer’s claim.

However, if you print complex multi-page documents, which requires the printer to process each page individually, the overall print speed will be determined by the printer’s processor and memory.

Samsung ML-3710ND
  • Dual core 600MHz processor
  • 128b RAM standard (max. 384mb)
Lexmark E360dn
  • Single core 400Mhz processor
  • 32mb RAM standard (max. 288mb)

To show you just what affect the processor and memory have on the print speed, Samsung have put together a very interesting video:
