What is the Samsung Xpress M2070W?

Samsung is now the number two supplier of laser printers and all-in-ones in the UK and has a wide range of single and multi-function machines. The Xpress range is new and the Xpress M2070W sits at the lower end, at around £130. It’s aimed at the home or sole business customer and is particularly suitable for those with mobile devices, as well as PCs or Macs.

Samsung Xpress M2070W – Design and Features

The squat black and white case of the Samsung Xpress M2070W is neat and angular, with all its curves in the vertical direction. The flat lid to the scanner – there’s no Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) – lift slightly at the back for scanning magazines. Built into the lid is the NFC sensor, so you can tap your mobile device onto the most accessible part of the printer.

In front of the scanner is the control panel, with a two-line, mono LCD display, a navigation ring and large buttons to start and stop jobs and to switch the machine into stand-by mode immediately. This is hardly necessary, as it powers down after a minute of non-use, anyway.

There are four buttons to the left of the display, too, which provide quick access to the Scan to function and to the printer’s Eco mode, which saves toner, can print multiple pages per sheet and manually duplex.

Samsung Xpress M2070W – Connection and Installation

What’s the big NFC thing about, then? Near Field Communication (NFC) is a connection protocol for wireless devices, based on Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology, as used in contactless payment and Oyster travel cards.

In a printing application it gets around the need to search for a printer from your mobile device and pair with it before printing. As long as your mobile device supports NFC – many recent Android phones and tablet do, but Apple devices don’t – you can just touch the device to the Samsung Xpress M2070W’s scanner lid, in the front left-hand corner.

The necessary details are then transferred automatically between device and printer, so printing can begin immediately. All this, without affecting the security of any network the printer might be connected to. We tried it with a Samsung Galaxy Young and it worked perfectly. The connection can be remade using the WPS button on the printer or by tapping the phone on the scanner lid again.
