At A Glance

Documents from this nicely designed printer are crisp and sharp, but color photos are disappointing and arrive slowly.

Manufacturer’s Description

For businesses as protective of their image as they are of the bottom line, compact OKI C5200n/C5400 Series Digital Color printers are like two printers in one. They combine fast, high-quality OKI color and monochrome output with a low purchase price and low cost per page, so any of these printers can take the place of slower color inkjet and mono machines -- and stretch your budget. Any printer in the series can turn out up to 16 full-color and 24 mono pages per minute, with the first color page printing in just 13 seconds, the first monochrome page in as little as nine seconds. And those are crisp, bright pages at 1200 x 600 dpi.These printers have a standard paper capacity of 400 sheets (300-sheet paper tray and built-in 100-sheet multipurpose tray for labels, envelopes, transparencies, and card stock up to 110 lb.) That can expand to 930 sheets with an optional 530-sheet second tray. All models in the series can print on banner-size sheets up to 8.5" x 47.24" in length. And, with the optional duplexer, you can produce two-sided pages at close to rated engine speeds.The C5400N model is configured with a 400MHz PowerPC processor, 64MB of RAM (expandable to 320MB) and standard network, parallel and USB 2.0 interfaces. It offers a monthly duty cycle of 50,000 pages, a standard Job Accounting Utility and a five-year warranty on the LED printheads.
