Higher-Quality Print Output

Additional Printing Choices for Professional Documents

The printers' multipurpose tray supports media of up to 58 lbs. weight, which offers more printing choices for professional documents. Labels, cards, covers and envelopes can be printed using the multi-purpose tray with ease. This ability virtually eliminates the time it takes to feed sheets one at a time.

One Touch Eco Button

Businesses can lower toner and paper usage with the One Touch Eco Button. The One Touch Eco Button automatically activates 2-up printing (two pages on the same side) and duplex printing (printing on both sides), as well skipping blank pages and printing in Toner Save Mode. The default eco settings can be adjusted using Easy Printer Manager, and administrators can even enforce some or all of these rules in order to save your business money.

Easy Eco Driver

The Easy Eco Driver software, granted the 2012 Outstanding Achievement in Innovation award from Buyers Laboratory (BLI), can save users up to 20 percent on toner. Users have the option of removing images, converting them from bitmap to sketch, removing emboldened text, and a bevy of other features, all designed to reduce toner wasted on unnecessary prints, leading to even more savings.

Central Print Usage Control to Save More Resources

Central Print Usage Control, activated through the SyncThru- Admin Job Accounting feature, enables managers to assign users to specific printers, as well as assigning individual users or workgroups quotas. Tight usage controls as well as automatic notifications help business control costs and drive down spending.

More Laser Toner Cartridge Options, More Choices for Cost Reduction

The ProXpress M3820DW employs an all-in-one toner system, meaning that the toner and imaging unit are integrated into a single cartridge, for easy changing and easy stocking. It also offers several different cartridges options from standard-yield laser toner cartridges that typically yield 3,000 standard pages to extra-high yield laser toner cartridges that can yield up to 10,000 standard pages, which meets every business's needs for reducing spending. Whether you are looking for a lower up-front cost, or a lower overall cost per page, there's a cartridge suitable for your needs.

Convenient Mobile Printing Optimized for Business

With the Samsung Mobile Print app, you and your employees can easily print from their mobile devices, at no additional cost. Users do not need to install a new driver or configure network settings. By simply downloading the Mobile Print app from the Google Play store for Android or the App Store for iOS, and connecting to the Wi-Fi network on which the ProXpress M3820DW is shared, users can begin printing with ease. With Samsung Mobile Print, you can print not only standard images and PDFs, but also the full range of Microsoft Office documents, such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, as well as photos, emails, and even documents stored in the cloud, such as Google Drive. What's more, with the built-in Wi-Fi Direct, users can connect directly to the printer without the need for a separate access point, making it even easier for users to walk up and print.

Google Cloud Print Ready

The ProXpress M3820DW also supports Google Cloud Print, which allows users to print remotely using their Google account. Emails, photos, PDF files and SNS messages, such as Facebook and Twitter posts, can be printed, faxed or shared. Google Cloud Print works on smartphones, tablets, notebooks, PCs, Chromebooks and other web-connected devices.

Enterprise-Level Document Security

Businesses produce and print numerous official documents including confidential information, which require a high degree of security. The ProXpress M3820DW offers greater control, from user and network access, to document management and routing, with Samsung SyncThru Admin at the enterprise security level.

Easy Printer Manager

The Easy Printer Manager helps companies remotely control settings, such as the One Touch Eco Button, and easily access notifications and device status from one convenient location. Multiple devices can be monitored and managed using the Easy Printer Manager. Businesses can also monitor printer status, such as error messages, including paper empty, toner empty and paper jam alerts.

Easy Secure Printing

The ProXpress M3820DW features easy secure printing with a built-in numeric keypad, which allows users to protect personal or confidential documents. Users can select a secure print job through their driver, or administrators can force all jobs to require authentication. Once a secure print job is sent, it will only release when the user walks up and types in their PIN at the printer. This feature can protect sensitive documents from prying eyes, or reduce the number of wasted prints if a user decides not to pick up their print job. And best of all, this feature is included at no additional cost.
