Summary: Here's the deal. This is a fine printer, small footprint, the duplexing is great and the quality is decent. Okidata RIPS YOU OFF on their dinky little toner catridges which have minimal life and are absurdly expensive. There are compatible brands out there but Okidata makes it so that is virtually impossible to get a non-Oki cartridge to work..
Summary: I'm an OKI fan. My first printer was an Okidata wide carriage dot matrix that I purchased because the print quality was better than the competition at that time. It lasted 7 years and took a beating. After many years, I returned to OKI, again because of the print quality. OKI printers use high gloss toner, so pictures printed on card stock look like high quality photo paper prints. I also like having the ability to print on heavy card stock.
Summary: I like that the color and black toner cartridges are good for many pages of printing. They will outlast inkjet many times over. Also the toner will not plug up the printhead like on inkjet ink.
Summary: i previously owned a c3400n and it gave me years of service i have a small business and i use my printers a lot so when it was time to buy another i bought this one and man is it great they modified this printer and made it even better. it is the closes to the c3400n.
Summary: I purchased this printer to replace a perfectly fine running Oki C5200n I'd had for over eight years. But I ran up against the same wall all laser printer owners face eventually... Money. The cost to replace depleted consumables was going to cost about $100 more than the cost of this printer, even with generic components. This printer is attached to a computer running a dual boot Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro operating systems. Installation was stupid simple...
Summary: This is an OKI printer. It is built like a tank (well, at least tank-like) and it pops out the color prints with no backward glance. I have it slaved to half a dozen computers and it keeps up very nicly.
Summary: My former printer was a wax type color printer that made beautiful color prints but had to keep wax heated full time. When the constant heat began to compromise the plastic parts breakage occurred. The cost to fully load the printer with wax was about $400.00. When it finally smoked itself I decided that in addition to color, network connector and duplex printing I would insist on lower per page cost in my new printer. The Oki has delivered on all counts.
Summary: if I could return this I would. I connect it to my Mac and from the minute I turned it on the first time I get an error message saying Photo Conductor needs to be replaced. Seems to also go through toner fast. Only printed a couple hundred pages so far so still finding out. The print quality is great and it duplexes very nicely.
Summary: Terrible reliability. I'm on my second one. The first was totally problematic. The second, which was swapped out by an Okidata supervisor is now giving me another error: "Service Call - 142 Error". I have two other, totally & perfectly functioning Okidata printers, one B4600 & one C610 Color printer which work essentially flawlessly... This one NOT SO MUCH!!! ARGHHHH!!!! I'm on the phone w/Okidata right now trying to get the 'Ghost Out Of The Machine". Not Recommended!!!
