Summary: Do not buy this printer if you have a Mac! Before I bought it I made sure all reviews said it worked with Macs. In the beginning yes....with limited functionality. Now, not at all. The latest driver available for this model is for OSX.6!!! So now I have a printer that will not work with my Mac AT ALL!
Summary: From a print quality perspective, this printer does a great job. This printer was purchased partially because of its ability to print on card stock. However, we have never been able to print on card stock without constant jams and malfunctions. I think it's safe to say that we've never actually printed on card stock, period. The driver support for OS X is poor.
Summary: Paid around $500 for this printer more than three years ago, and no major problems. Have printed 7,000 plus copies, and am very happy with the print quality. I quit buying my replacement cartridges from Staples, and now buy from <...> for around $28 each. Have had zero technical issues with it. Paper jams occur from time to time, but think it may be paper quality or weight issues. Cartridges are very easy to access / replace. I'd highly recommend this printer to anyone.
Pros: Glossy, rich, SHARP prints. Very fast, very quiet, reasonable toner costs. Optional duplexer makes putting reports together quick and easy, HOWEVER, I would suggest the 256mb or at the very least the 64mb memory upgrade with the duplexer.
Cons: Doesn't like 110lb cardstock, but advertised that it would print on it. (From manual feeder or paper tray).
Summary: We have this printer in the office where I work and I just had to get one for home. This printer is the perfect startup to my business. With the quality of this printer, I will be able to charge my customers great rates and guarantee anything that is printed with this machine. Very satisfied.
Summary: I've had a 5500N for about 2 years now, with fairly light use. Having printed about 15,000 pages, I was getting messages saying that it was time to replace the black drum (there are 4; it is a CMYK printer). A replacement drum is about $90. Clearly, the other three would follow soon. I bought a refurbished unit for less than the price of two drums.
Summary: Bought this printer refursbished from Tiger Direct for $[...] and WOW what a surprise. 1) Packaged and Like new condition. 2) Ease of setup out of the box and for internet. 3) Features of this printer blow the competitor (Samsung CLP-315W ).No compresison. 4) Easy and nice led features on the printer allow you to see and configure the printer right there verses the the pc which I didnt want. 5) Also has a nice Power Saver mode that you can configure or keep off.
Summary: This is the second OkiData C5500N I have purchased. When the first ran out of toner I went to Staples and found the printer on sale cheaper the buying the toner so I bought the printer and boxed up the older one. The image quality is great. Two months out of the one year warranty the new printer quit working and OkiData will not fix it. Yes, it's a one year warranty but two months out and it's broken beyond repair?
Summary: The Oki C5500N is a great value for home and small office laser printing. We own two of these (one in our home and one in our small office :-) and couldn't be happier with the printers. Here are my observations: * Network ready, just plug it into your router * Easy software setup * No built in duplexing, but available as an (expensive) option Duplex Unit C5500N Printer * Included toner cartridges are a little small, you will likely want to order the high capacity...
