Summary: I bought a C5200n from Staples 4 years ago. Almost no trouble through many thousands of prints. Affordable consumables make it cheaper to use than most other printers. High reliability for daily, occasionally heavy, use. Mine is getting old, though, so I wanted a backup. (Replacement cost new today is much higher than in 2006.) I love Okidata printers.
Cons: Strarted printing lines on page 2 months into ownership. Now it paperjams with nothing stuck in the printer. I've owned a computer company for several years, HP is the only way to go. I will never buy or recommend OKI to anyone.
Summary: I enjoyed using my C5400 since I bought it. C5400 is a faster one but functionally the same as the C5200. My purchased was based on the great rating on PC World magazine when it first came on the market. The color printout seems the best at that time. I also wanted to have a duplex feature and Oki has the add-on. At that time the Okidata with a duplexer cost me over $1,200 which is very expensivie by today's prices.
Summary: I absolutely love the Oki 3500. The quality is superb, the speed is unbelievable, and the price is wonderful! It is the best of all worlds. It does great when I have to print huge volumes of black text, yet it still comes through with unprecedented quality when I want to print colorful charts and graphs for work. I am always asked if I went to Kinkos or Staples and I proudly say that the only place I went to was my home office!
Summary: Set up was quick and easy. Prints fast! Color is pretty good, but will never take the place of my Epson R1800 inkjet. Images came out really good on the OKIdata laser paper. One thing I really appreciate is the techs at OKIdata are very helpful.
Summary: QUICK COLOR PRINTING. PICTURE PRINTING NOT AS GOOD AS AN INK JET BUT MY KIDS CAN NOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE. CUT COSTS OF PRINTING FROM 30 CENTS TO 5 CENTS PER PAGE. EASY TO MAINTAIN AND EASY TO REFILL. REMEMBER IT IS NOT THE COST OF THE PRINTER BUT THE COST OF THE COSUMABLES.THAT IS WHY I CHOSE THIS PRINTER AND I AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT.
