Summary: Here's the deal with these printers, and I really hate saying this. They are inexpensive, have few moving parts, but the rollers only last a couple of years of moderate printing at best and then your paper stops feeding correctly. I've found this on two different OK LED printers. So.... they are disposable -- future landfill fodder. If you don't mind that, get one. If you want something that will last longer...
Summary: This is a small reliable printer. Low cost replacement toner available. It could print darker though but good enough for shipping labels. Be careful of plastic tabs that hold paper tray to back when moving printer.
Cheap, quiet, small and light... with mediocre output

Summary: For $50, this is the cheapest brand new laser/LED printer that I could find. People are still trying to sell Laserjet 4s for $30-40 everywhere I look. It is obnoxiously quiet most of the time, to the point where you think it isn't doing anything at all. Then, poof, it starts outputting a page. Two issues with this printer, which may make it useless to some people, are as follows: The paper's path is very tightly curved and will cause significant bowing in the paper.
Summary: It is my first laser mono. I bought this for small office use, printing mostly black and white text document. Pros and the Rub: 1. it is cheap for printing cost compared to inkjet. around 2000 pages for a toner cartridge.(depends on your usage for full text or partial text) 2. Frequency for paper jam is much lower compared to my inkjet. The rub : It depends on the thickness and surface texture of the paper.
Summary: This is a compact little printer that is useful for a small office or home office. It works well, when it works, but it can be temperamental with frequent paper jams. It is not always easy to fix and can be frustrating. On the plus side it hasn't used much ink so far and was fairly easy to set up. If it jams it is difficult to get it to just print from where it stopped and it tends to waste a lot of paper and does the whole lot again.
Summary: I must admit that I rarely review products, however this printer has exceeded my expectations so much that it deserves a review.At this price, I expected a ropey, noisy and troublesome printer of poor quality. What I have received is a fantastic, efficient, quite and trouble free printer that works so smoothly that sometimes I forget the days of the old clattering ink-jet.
Summary: This OKI printer does exactly what you expect it to do. Fast (ish), reliable, small and a perfect desk top printer for home or office use. I use it in my office at work and print around 100 pages a day on it. It's easy to use, easy to set up and very quiet actually. All in all great value for money. Also the print quality is pretty good for a low end black and white printer.
