Irvine, Calif., August 15, 2007 — Samsung Electronics America, the world´s second largest printer manufacturer, today announced that two of its monochrome multifunction printers, the SCX-5530FN and SCX-6322DN, have been awarded "Pick of the Year" courtesy of Buyer´s Laboratory, in the small workgroup and the mid-size workgroup monochrome multifunction printer categories.

The SCX-5530FN received the "Pick of the Year" award in the small workgroup monochrome printer category for providing small offices with critical time and cost saving integrated document management functions previously available only to large-size businesses. "The SCX-5530FN offers users the full multifunction features found in larger machines, but has a very small footprint and an easy-to-use control panel," explained Paul DePaolo, Buyer´s Laboratory Senior Test Engineer.

Designed for small business users, the SCX-5530FN offers easy-to-use network connectivity options, high-speed printing at up to 28 ppm, standard duplex printing, digital scanning and direct USB functions. Its unique USB interface enables PC-less scan-and-save to a USB memory stick. Furthermore, the ID-copy function enables automatic two-sided copying of an ID, for convenient ID duplication.

In addition, Samsung´s SCX-6322DN earned the "Pick of the Year" award in the mid-size workgroup monochrome multifunction printer category by facilitating optimal user convenience and overall impressive economy. "The redesigned control panel greatly enhances the ease of use compared to the previous generation of products, said DePaolo. "Along with the compact QWERTY keypad the process of data entry is simplified. Both of these monochrome multifunction printers offer a per-page supply cost that is among the lowest for products in their class."

As a versatile and powerful copier-centric A4 multifunction printer with a 4-in-1 capability (printer, copier, scanner and fax) the SCX-6332DN provides a fast duplex printing speed of 19 images per minute with 28 ppm for single-side print/copy. Complete with enhanced network-ready features, the product delivers solutions to the growing network functionality needs of mid-size business users.

"It is an honor to receive these awards for our laser multifunction printers,as it acknowledges our continued commitment to provide the best printer solutions to the industry. Samsung will continue to manufacture the highest quality and ensure the best reliability in all our printers as we strive to become a top tier printer solutions provider by the year 2010." said Jay Shears, Director of Marketing for Printers at Samsung Electronics America. "Samsung´s multifunction printer lineup offers a complete set of options for business customers, and we are pleased that Buyer´s Laboratory has recognized the high performance and exceptional output of our products."
