Summary: This printer makes you really appreciate the humor of Office Space. I purchased an OKI MC361 last year: we have had an issue with it from the beginning. Most annoying of which is; it has difficulty recognizing the yellow toner, and yes it is OKI toner. I'm done messing with it and will be throwing it away and buying something other than an OKI printer. So if you are in the market, I can tell you which dumpster I tossed it in.
Summary: This printer makes you really appreciate the humor of Office Space. I purchased an OKI MC361 last year: we have had an issue with it from the beginning.

I'm done messing with it and will be throwing it away and buying something other than an OKI printer. So if you are in the market, I can tell you which dumpster I tossed it in.
Summary: What can I tell you about this printer? It works fine for a little while, looks nice; however, after 6 months or so in a light to medium printing environment the errors start to appear. These error codes shut the printer down; they cannot be found in any manual, or ever online. They just say Error <##> and then nothing else.
Summary: Got the OKI MC 361 yesterday. Instructions are not in the box or on the disc. You have to go online and wade through some very non-userfriendly menus to find the "advanced user manual' that gives directions for setting up the system. Once set up it only printed 1 page every 10-15 minutes. My old HP 2600 has been printing the same document for the past 6 years, an entire 16 pages in about a minute, so I know its not the document or the software.
Pros: none. couldn't get it to print a full 16 page doc english speaking customer support
Cons: print speed 1 page every 10-15 min. can't do duplex because it locks up after 15 min. 75 lbs. that i'll have to lug back to costco. no user guides in the box.
Summary: I recommended this to relatives based on price, too bad I didn't read the reviews. The set-up process was not clear and I couldn't get the scanner to work. After several trips to help try and get it working, I'll be helping haul it back to Costco.
Summary: I had this printer for a year. Wish I had returned it right away. It is bulky, noisy, and networking is clumsy - and seems the ink (expensive) runs out too quick. It's prints are decent on the positive side.
Pros: decent prints
Cons: size noise starts up slow networking is almost impossible to figure
Summary: This printer gives great printing results but is very unstable on its network connection. It may work fine when usb connected but if you install this on a network put the printer driver on your desktop, you will need it. I have to remove this printer and reinstall the drivers every month or so. I have had it about 9 months. I would never buy another low end OKI printer again.
Pros: great prints
Cons: terrible network connection on both of our pc's oki does not update the driver to correct issues
Summary: I rarely write reviews but I thought I should on this one. The cartridges are not refillable and you cannot run after market cartridges on this machine. The cartridge has a microchip that when the ink runs out it kills the cartridge. If you refill the cartridge the machine will think the cartridge is out of ink. See response from OkiData below. I contacted OkiData Customer Service to validate this. Here is my response to their response.
Poor user interface not as good as brother 9460cdn
23 December 2011
Summary: I have a Brother 9460CDN i need another printer, and heard very god things about OKI. However, i was very disappointed, the first printer I received was defective the door the toner cartridges did not open. Costco service was great they had another one sent out right away. But when i got the new printer i was shocked by how horrible and confusing the user interface was.
