The SCX-8123NA and SCX-8128NA are Samsung’s latest additions to its MultiXpress MFP line. The two new A3 monochrome MFPs are print, copy, scan and fax-capable. The SCX-8123NA offers a top print speed of 23 ppm, while the SCX-8128NA prints 28 ppm. Both new devices, along with their color counterparts, the CLX-9201NA, CLX-9251NA and CLX-9301NA, appear to be based on the same Samsung laser print engine. The 7-inch color touch screen user interface, 1GHz processor and optional 320 GB hard drive are among other features available on both new devices. Optional finishing features include a job separator, an internal 50-sheet stapler, inner finisher, job separator and 350-sheet stacking.

Summary

The SCX-8123NA and SCX-8128NA are Samsung’s latest additions to its MultiXpress MFP line. The two new A3 monochrome MFPs are print, copy, scan and fax-capable. The SCX-8123NA offers a top print speed of 23 ppm, while the SCX-8128NA prints 28 ppm. The previously released MultiXpress SCX-8030ND and SCX-8040ND print at speeds of 30 ppm and 40 ppm, respectively, and are still available in the OEMs lineup. Both new devices, along with their color counterparts, the CLX-9201NA, CLX-9251NA and CLX-9301NA, appear to be based on the same Samsung laser print engine. The monthly duty cycle of 100,000 pages is the same for the SCX-8123NA and SCX-8128NA, and both machines support duplex printing. The 7-inch color touch screen user interface, 1GHz processor and optional 320 GB hard drive are among other features available on both new devices. The standard paper capacity of 1,140 sheets is expandable to 2,180 sheets on the SCX-8123NA and SCX-8128NA. Optional finishing features include a job separator, an internal 50-sheet stapler, inner finisher, job separator and 350-sheet stacking.

The SCX-8123NA and SCX-8128NA require a new black toner cartridge and waste toner box. The black cartridge is rated at 25,000 pages at 5 percent coverage. The machines feature Samsung's chemically produced toners, which were released in 2010. While the OEM typically publishes suggested retail pricing for consumables, this has not been the case with these new machines. It is likely that MSRPs are not being offered on these consumables because the SCX-8123NA and SCX-8128NA will be sold exclusively through dealers, allowing the channel partners to set their own prices.

The SCX-8123NA and SCX-8128NA are available exclusively through the BTA dealer channel. The machines will compete against Canon's imageRUNNER Advance 25, Konica Minolta bizhub 223/283/363, Kyocera Mita TASKalfa 255/300i/305, Sharp MX-M283/M363 and Xerox WorkCentre 5225/5230. In terms of the hardware MSRP, the Samsung machines look attractive. Without consumables pricing, however, it is difficult to judge just how well the machines will do in the lower end of the highly competitive A3 monochrome market.
