In addition, the SCX-4100 includes a feature for copying double-sided ID cards onto one page, said Jay Allan Shears, director of office automation with Samsungs Information Technology Division. "This is great for a dentists or doctors office where they need to make copies of patient ID cards," said Shears.

Shears added that the units size—16.6 by 15.8 by 9.4 inches—makes it a good fit for small spaces. Cost per page is less than two cents, according to Samsung.
