Samsung 8380 Colour Copier / Multifunctional Printer – Feature Review

“The Samsung 8380 colour copier is perfect for the office that does not require 11 x 17 capability”.


Any office looking for a small footprint multi-function printer should consider the Samsung 8380. This all-in-one unit prints in both color and black and white, includes duplex, a simple interface, quick print speeds and more. The 8380 holds true to Samsungs belief that a printer is more than a simple machine, it is an integral member of the work team. This A4 multifunctional printer / copier is very ideal if you do not require 11 x 17. This reduces both the size of device, as well as the cost.


The Samsung 8380 allows users to print, scan, fax, copy, duplex and network. It eliminates the need for multiple pieces of equipment in the workplace.


The heavy-duty build of this unit means that up to 100,000 pages can produced each month.


The Samsung 8380 includes an auto duplex feature that allows two sided copies automatically. Save money and the environment by conserving paper.

Print Speed and Quality

The print speed and quality varies depending on the job. For copies, the Samsung 8380 produces up to 40 copies per minute with a resolution of 600 dpi by 600 dpi. When printing 40 pages per minute can be printed with a resolution of 1200 x 1200.  First print out time varies from 10 seconds to 13 seconds.


The Samsung 8380 includes multiple features that increase the functionality of the machine.

  • Zoom Rate:  The printer has a zoom feature that allows users to zoom from 25% to 400% of the original.
  • Multi Copy:  Users can copy up to 999 copies.
  • Fax:  The fax feature includes the ability to program and store up to 200 fax numbers. It also has a junk fax barrier, polling, broadcast feature and a mail box.

Paper Handling

The Samsung 8380 includes superb paper handling capacity. With a max output of 500 sheets and the ability to hold up to 2,720 pages, there is little need to reload the machine. It also can handle multiple paper types including plain, thin, bond, recycled, cardstock, thick, punched, and colored paper as well as envelope stock.


Samsung has created a printer that has the ability to conserve toner. The average yield of a toner cartridge is 18,000 black and white pages or 12,000 color pages. The drum will remain usable for up to 50,000 pages.


Several additional features can be added to the Samsung 8380 to make it even more useful. These include a finisher, staple cartridge, tall or short stand, additional memory and a high capacity feeder.

In short, the Samsung 8380 colour copier is an ideal high yield multi functional that can handle jobs both big and small and provide users with quality images.

    This looks amazing and impressive. I am just wondering if they also use an ordinary laser toner or not?

    Hi – this machine is cartridge based, but the toner is of a different standard than what you will find in a laser cartridge. The cost per copy on these machines is also much better than a laser printer.
