Summary: Have had two of these printers in a home office. I used to reload my owner toner cartridges but its possible that caused the first c3400 to fail before its time at the two year mark (gears were grinding from over full toner cartridge overflow?). Now I'm buying non-OEM cartridges and disposing of them when they are empty. Works fine. I like this printer for the shiny ink. I'm a contractor and I print brochures for clients on 20lb ultra bright white paper.
Summary: The printer works well although I had a delay in setup because the supplied printer drivers did not include the Vista operating system. I also have an issue with the toner level report. On installation the capacity of all tonor cartridges was 99%. On day two the black toner supply was listed at 20% and this has not changed. There were very few pages printed between these reports. Either the sensor is in error or the supply is not at the stated expected 2500 pages.
Summary: I purchased this printer at a discount as it had been a store demonstrator model. I had never had an OKI printer and was very skeptical about what I was getting. I have had this printer for about 3 years now and it performs as well today as it did when it was new. Print is very sharp and color output is excellent. Printing is very fast. I have printed as many as 350 pages at one time and it very rarely has a problem.
Summary: Very pleased with the performance of my OKI C3400N printer. When I purchased it, didn't realize it was an LED printer instead of a laser. The print seems to be just a little lighter than I'm used to from my previous laser printers. Also, my Konika print cartridges were good for 5000 pages. The Oki is either 2000 or 2500 -- can't remember. But that's pretty common from what I'm reading. Had some service questions on 2 occasions. The printer has been working great.
Summary: I have owned Oki before. Excellent printer. I run a home office and it handles all my printing needs. I would recommend to everybody. Paid $110 Delivered to my door on Ebay. How can you beat that deal!
Excellent Speed, Print Quality, Consumable Cost is Okay
15 April 2009
Summary: I like that this printer is really fast (quick print outs), network able, has great print quality, offers great customer service in U.S. and the toner cost (consumable)is not too high if you go with a "compatible" toner-seller online (would recommend). The smaller size and weight over my previous printer (Okidata c5200n), is terrific for home or office use.
Summary: It acts like a printer you would find at a print shop. The colors are clear and sharp. I have owned a printer like this before and was very happy with it. I do a lot of color printing, as I print cookbooks, paper back books and other items that we sell.
Summary: This is a smaller version of the 5500 and I like it at work. This one should work great. Be aware, the disk does not have Vista driver. It does have internet driver install and it picks up Vista driver doing that.
Summary: This is a great option for a home use printer. The quality is great. The size/footprint is also good as it fits perfectly on the top of a standard file cabinet. It is easy to set up / install and use. The cost of replacement toner is lower, in general, than other printers in the same class. You will spend around $60 for color toner cartridges that yield up to 1000 pages and slightly less for the black toner that yields up to 2000 pages.
