Excerpt: Having had good experience with OKI in the past, I bought this 451B about a year ago. The drum is supposed to print about 15,000 copies and the toner is supposed to print about 5,000 pages. However, the counter says almost 20,000 copies and I am on my 6th drum and I've lost count of the toners.
Great MFP and value, Awesome Customer Service and Technical Support
18 October 2014
Summary: So far, so good with the Oki Data MB451 MFP. Arrived quickly, in perfect condition. Great price as well. I considered other MFP/AIO units with similar features, but was going to cost at minimum another $60, shipping included.
Excerpt: I bought this printer thinking it would be a good all in 1 but the user interface makes it impossible to scan anything and the print quality deteriorates after about 1,500 prints. You start to get vertical lines in the output.
Pros: Good Value, Fast
Cons: Difficult to Set Up, Quality, Difficult to Use
Summary: I have had this printer since June of 2013 & I can not believe the features & software that this little gem has!!! There are only 2 things that I have found that are lacking & that is there is no app for my Android phone to allow me to print from it (there is 3rd party software & Google cloud print...
Summary: If you're an IT professional that needs a multi-function machine without a lot of toner capacity, this might be a decent product. For an amateur use, the setup process is a nightmare, and for a professional that does a lot of printing, having to constantly replace toner cartridges is both annoying...
Pros: This machine has plenty of features, and was on sale for 129.95 when I purchased it. It was a great deal for the price. The print quality is good and the machine seems to work very well and doesn't have problems with jams.
Cons: The setup process is HORRIBLE for basic users. I'm a techie with plenty of experience building PC's and setting up small networks. It took hours to get this machine set up properly and I had to scour the internet for proper documentation. The on-command fax reception feature only seems to work ab...
Summary: I got tired of buying ink for my inkjet printer and researched laser printers. Since I am a college student, I have to type and print many papers. I have not used the doublesided feature, although it is offered, which is super. I connected the fax and it works perfect.
Great printer until OKIDATA RAN OUT OF INK NATIONWIDE UNTIL SEPTEMBER!!!!!!!!!
9 July 2013
Summary: I use thus printer for work, it's been great. I've had it for three months, I go through an ink cartridge a week! The I had two differs companies cancel my order for more ink. I was informed Okidata was out of ink NATIONWIDE until September. I spoke to them directly and they confirmed it.
Excerpt: Since I purchased the machine 4 mos ago, I have had such an awful time order ink toner replacements. Everyone is always out of stock including OkiData. Wish I had been informed of this when I purchased product. From month to month, have to ask where will I be able to find ink toner?
