We put the 4321 through a series of tests to find out how quick, accurate and fast it is. The printer had two modes – normal (at 600 dpi) and draft (at 300 dpi). Here’s what the scores from our tests look like.
Under Normal mode, the printer took 12 seconds to print one entire page full of text, which included warm up times as well. The warm up time is roughly around 6-7 seconds every time you initiate a print, so you’ll have to keep that in mind, while printing. It’s a second or two slower than the ML-2951ND, which we reviewed a while back. For instance, the ML-2951ND took a bare 9 seconds to finish printing the same page, which the 4321 took 12 seconds for. Even in draft mode, we couldn’t get the time quicker than 11 seconds. A full sized image took 24 seconds to print, while a page filled with text at different sizes clocked in at half that time. A ten page group of prints took the printer 53 seconds, which was definitely not up to the same speed, we witnessed with the ML-2951ND, that completed twenty pages in the same time. The twenty page group took 1 minute and 13 seconds, which means it still has some catching up to do with the ML-2951ND.
Easy to slot cartridge
Scanning, however, is an added feature you get with this printer and scan speeds are pretty quick as well. But, it’s an office printer – so it needs to quietly do its work. Unfortunately, if you’re sitting in a silent room, you’ll feel the noise levels of the SCX-4321 quite high. In fact, even with a substantial amount of background noise, we could clearly hear the printer chugging along trying to complete its task. Definitely one of the negative points of the SCX-4321. Next up, quality and cost. Paper jamming issues have been handled well, so in case of a paper jam, you can quickly open the front flap and remove the paper.
In monochrome images, we did see quite a number of horizontal lines, so you’ll definitely have to look elsewhere, if printing images is top priority. Otherwise, text appears pretty crisp for both normal and draft modes. With a cartridge price of approximately Rs.3,000 and an average yield of 3000 standard pages, you do get a good value for your prints.
An average performer
The Samsung SCX-4321 is priced at Rs.18,892 (MRP), but with a lot of market vendors you'll get it for around Rs. 11,000. For that price, you’re getting a printer, scanner and copier. It has a well priced cartridge and per cartridge yield average, but the machine itself is quite expensive if you're buying it at MRP. With an 11k price tag though, you're definitely getting a more value for money product. If you're in the market for a good MFP, then the SCX-4321 is a good purchase.
