This is a cheap color laser printer with a proprietary language. Samsung provides a closed-source driver on their web site, the "Unified Linux Driver", a driver package containing CUPS drivers and PPDs for all Samsung printers. Version 2.00.90 and newer supports also this printer. Output is raster-only, and due to glitches in the software, monochrome sources are output as color (visible flecks of cyan, magenta, and yellow). It is also not easy to install this driver in arbitrary distributions. See the user reports below in the entry for the CLP-510.

As the first free software printer driver SpliX supports this printer, but the driver still needs testing. So please try out this printer with SpliX and report your results to the author of the driver.

Consumables/Refills: B, C, M, Y, total UKP 240
